Montblanc Combines Technology With Sophistication

Pebble isn’t the only company to be working with smart straps (Pebble Leaves Monochrome Behind With Time Watch). Luxury watch brand Montblanc has now launched its Tie Walker Urban Speed e-Strap series: an OLED display embedded into a watch band, which can show notifications from an Android or iOS smartphone (via Bluetooth). Available in three versions (basic; with second time zone; and with chronograph), the straps will start at $300 when they are launched this year.


It’s not quite James Bond’s laser watch, but probably as close as we’re going to get any time soon. (TA)
