Leatherman Tread Tempo Watch Is A Bracelet Multi-Tool With A Watch Attached To It

0

Leatherman is a company best known for their varied selection of multi-tools. If you’re EDC fan the chances are you probably use, or used, some of their products. Their EDC gear is tough and durable but also comes with a unique metallic design making Leatherman one of the most known EDC brands. If you’re looking for an excellent multi purpose pocket knife or a multi-tool that looks completely different when compared to similar products, such as Leatherman’s Skeletool line, you’ll get excellent products that will serve you for many years. Aside from offering unique design, the company also tries to introduce new product types to the market like the Tread, a wearable bracelet packing more than two dozens of tools. The Tread looks awesome, it doesn’t look so bad when you wear it, and it can offer you tools for any situation. The company planned to release a special Tread Watch, a luxury watch along with the Tread multi-tool bracelet for years, and now they finally managed to make it. Introducing the Tread Tempo Watch, a watch coming with a multi-tool wearable made out of metal.

The watch itself looks pretty nice. It doesn’t feature a plethora of small details capable of ruining the design. Instead, the Tread Tempo Watch is characterized by its brushed metal looks, along with just a few additional details such as calendar and glow-in-the-dark hands and hour markers, perfectly combined with dark gray, almost black, background. Along with the Tread multi-tool, the watch makes one coherent device that’s pleasant to look at.

The watch is protected with a sapphire glass (one of the toughest materials on Earth), but you’ll find sapphire protection only on the stainless steel version. The other one, matte black, comes without the sapphire protection. Other features include water resistance (up to 200 meters), and TSA-friendly certificate, meaning the watch won’t be taken from you because of security concerns on airports.

The bracelet itself is narrower and lighter than the original Tread (20 percent narrower and 10 percent lighter, to be precise) and it feels like the company had to make it that way because even if you wear just the bracelet you can feel how heavy it is. Sales package gets you 9 links in total:

  • 3/32″ Screwdriver
  • 6mm Hex Drive
  • 4mm Hex Drive
  • #3 Square Drive
  • #1 Square Drive
  • Pozi-Driv #3
  • 8mm Box Wrench
  • Pozi-Driv #2
  • 11mm Box Wrench

Each link has several functions, and you can equip the watch band with six links while three are included in the box and can be attached to the bracelet in seconds.

At the same time with the Tread Tempo Watch, Leatherman announced it will also offer the new Tread LT as a standalone product, which is great because the new bracelet is noticeably lighter and smaller than the original version. It comes with these tools:

  • 3/32″ Screwdriver
  • Cutting Hook
  • 6mm Hex Drive
  • 4mm Hex Drive
  • 8mm Box Wrench
  • #3 Square Drive
  • #1 Square Drive
  • Pozi-Driv #2
  • 11mm Box Wrench
  • #2 Square Drive
  • Bottle Opener

Both the watch and the redesigned multi-tool bracelet should come in November. The Tread Tempo Watch should cost $575 (a bit steep) and the Tread LT should sport a price tag of $175.
