While everybody goes crazy with multi-purpose smartwatches that track calories, evaluate sleep and fitness and act as a handy interface for your smartphone, Leatherman decided to improve the classic good ol’ wristwatch in a different direction, by transforming it into a super-multi-tool ready to give you a hand when the situation requires it!
The Leatherman Thread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch is an interesting concept which combines a Swiss-made timepiece (quartz movement, rotating bezel, 200m water resistant, scratch resistant sapphire crystal) with Leatherman’s innovative Tread multi-tool bracelet. The wristwatch is TSA compliant (you can wear it in an airplane) and comes with an impressive warranty of 25 years. The Thread bracelet, the coolest part of the watch, it’s fully adjustable 9by adding or removing links), it’s made of 17-4 Stainless Steel and combines 7 unique pieces which contain not less than 20 individual tools – a cutting hook, a bottle opener, an oxygen tank wrench, a carbiade glass breaker, screwdrivers (1/4″, 5/16, 1/8, 3/32″ and #1 Philips), box wrenches (10mm, 3/8″, 5/16″), hex drive (1/4″, 3/16″, 5mm, 6mm), a #2 square drive, a 1/4″ socket drive and a pick/SIM card tool! Just imagine the possibilities!
The Leatherman Thread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch will be available for purchase in the Fall of 2015 and will set you back ~$500-$600 US.
