Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap: Luxury’s First Wearable Tech?

Montblanc has introduced the TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap, marrying a highly functional e-Strap with contemporary TimeWalker timepieces.

The e-Strap is an interchangeable strap, with an integrated technology device that offers an activity tracker, smart notifications, remote controls (for smartphones) and Find-Me functions. It connects, via Bluetooth Low Energy, to selected Android and iOS smartphones. The owner will be able to wear a mechanical timepiece with highly useful digital functionality.

The e-Strap device has an inbuilt touch screen display, readable in daylight, to display the information and navigate through the functionalities. The technical device is encapsulated in a stainless steel case with rubber protection and can be easily fixed and adjusted with the pass-through strap. Depending on usage, the device needs to be recharged every 5 days using a standard micro-USB cable. The e-Strap is compatible with Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, Note 3, Note 4, selected Android Devices running Android 4.3 and upwards as well as Apple iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, 6 and 6 plus.

The TimeWalker collection e-Strap is equipped with a pass-through strap made of the innovative Montblanc Extreme Leather. The Extreme leather wristband created by the Montblanc Pelleteria inFlorence, perfectly matches with the timepiece: markedly technical while retaining a sporty yet elegant appearance. The collection extension contains three new models including a chronograph and a UTC.

The Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap series will be available in June with prices ranging from €2,990 (US$3,750) for the automatic to €4,690 (US$,600) for the chronograph. The e-Strap is also available separately for €350 (US$418).
