Part percussive device, part foam roller, the Wave is good for general workout recovery or muscle relaxation. For more affordable Theragun products designed to pinpoint specific areas, the Solo for $59 ($20 off) or Duo for $79 ($20 off) might be better options. Read more about them here.

When it comes to price, the SKG F5 is a fantastic massage device that delivers heat as well as percussive therapy. There are three attachments and three intensity levels. It goes on sale all the time, but we have not seen it sell for less than this.

The Elite D9 has arguably too many intensity levels and attachments, but for those interested in truly customizing muscle therapy day to day, it may be the best choice. This price is the best WIRED has tracked since last April.

Stop slouching! Did that make you sit up straight? Well, this device (8/10, WIRED Recommends) might actually help improve your posture. It sticks to your back via an adhesive strip (or a necklace) and it vibrates when your back reaches a specific angle you calibrate in the companion app (kind of like a shock band, minus the shocking part). WIRED reviewer Medea Giordano says it’s the only device that’s made her think about her posture even when she’s not wearing it.

The Propella is my favorite budget ebike of all those I’ve tested at WIRED. The components are quality, the bike weighs a svelte 37 pounds—that’s light for an ebike—and its looks don’t scream “ebike.” Associate reviews editor Parker Hall awarded it an 8/10 and a WIRED Recommends award in his review of the

World Has Lost At Least 5 Million People To Covid

While it’s likely a vast undercount, the official pandemic death toll surpassed 5 million. “When we get out our microscopes, we see that within countries, the most vulnerable have suffered most,” an infectious disease specialist told the AP.

COVID-19’s Global Death Toll Tops 5 Million In Under 2 Years


The global death toll from COVID-19 topped 5 million on Monday, less than two years into a crisis that has not only devastated poor countries but also humbled wealthy ones with first-rate health care systems. Together, the United States, the European Union, Britain and Brazil — all upper-middle- or high-income countries — account for one-eighth of the world’s population but nearly half of all reported deaths. The U.S. alone has recorded over 740,000 lives lost, more than any other nation. (Johnson, 11/1)

Covid Deaths Top 5 Million Even As Vaccines Slash Fatality Rate


More than 5 million people worldwide have died from Covid-19 less than two years after the novel pathogen was first documented, despite the arrival of vaccines that have slashed fatality rates across the globe. The latest 1 million recorded deaths came slower than the previous two. It took more than 110 days to go from 4 million deaths to 5 million, compared to less than 90 days each to reach the 3- and 4-million marks. The rate has returned to what was seen during the first year of the pandemic, when the virus was still taking hold. (Hong, 11/1)

A World Remembers: Memorials Honor COVID-19’s 5 Million Dead


The Italian city that suffered the brunt of COVID-19’s first deadly wave is dedicating a vivid memorial to the pandemic dead: A grove of trees, creating oxygen in a park opposite the hospital where so many died, unable to breathe. Bergamo, in northern Italy, is among the many communities around the globe dedicating memorials to commemorate lives lost in a pandemic that is nearing the terrible threshold of 5 million confirmed dead.
