The MacGyver Wristband, The First Useful ‘Wearable’?

An ingenious design. A fully customizable bracelet. A multi-tool that can be worn on the wrist. Introducing the Leatherman Tread.


Available in late Spring 2015,  how can you not be wowed by a stainless steel wearable bracelet that can be re-built with slotted fasteners and boasts links including two to three functional tools,


How it works is that each link on the Tread is a fully functioning tool that can be removed, used and replaced. Designed  to be fully customizable, you can adjust the bracelet’s size for comfort down to one quarter of an inch. With a functional clasp the bracelet comes with tools that include hex drives, screwdrivers, box wrenches, a carbide glass breaker, and a hook-style box cutter that doubles as a SIM card pick.leatherman-inline2-660x447

In our opinion, the USP of the $150 bracelet is that it is TSA- and security-friendly. Which means that you can travel and pass security checkpoints with a full compliment of Leatherman tools on your person- hoorah!

The Leatherman Tread Watch may not give you turn-by-turn directions or listen to voice commands, but I guarantee you’ll get more use out of its bottle opener than you will “-Digital Touch.”

With a total of 25 usable features the bracelet is also available with a black diamond carbon finish that will cost you $200. The tread watches start from $500 for stainless steel and $600 for black DLC.
