With us barely days into 2015, Montblanc has launched a brand new watch (properly, it’s not precisely the watch that’s new, however extra on that later) to assist us, properly, be greater than we might be. No, I’m not simply mumbling gibberish. I’m truly speaking concerning the new Urban Speed e-Strap, which is definitely a small system that’s connected to the strap of the timepiece. Essentially an built-in expertise system, the Urban Speed e-Strap permits you to do many issues, from being knowledgeable of notifications to monitoring your exercise ranges or studying textual content messages, which can work a breeze as soon as it’s related to its app, which can be utilized with chosen Android and iOS smartphones.
And that’s not all. It may also be activated to snap pics together with your smartphone, view incoming calls and even play music, so it’s principally a niftier extension of your cell system which might be worn in your wrist.
Which is all high-quality and good, contemplating that this gained’t be the primary time such a tool is on the market available in the market that both comes by itself or built-in right into a timepiece. What piqued my curiosity extra is the road of TimeWalker watches which might be being provided with this system, collectively often called the TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap.
Take the TimeWalker Urban Speed Chronograph (proven above), as an illustration. Featuring a stealth black DLC case that comes detailed in racer purple, it’s completed with one other Montblanc creation, the Extreme Leather Strap that appears like carbon however is definitely leather-based that’s handled to be abrasion-resistant, water-repellent and fireproof. In different phrases, that is one timepiece that scores excessive on each brains and brawn, which makes it a keeper for certain.
