A long time ago, I bought a Leatherman multitool that has a pouch you are supposed to attach to your belt. I found quickly that I don’t like things on my belt and stopped using it. It seems that every time I turn around at work, I need a tool of some sort and I am left searching for what I need. I still refuse to wear that multi-tool on my belt though. A new multitool that Leatherman is showing off might be perfect for folks like me who don’t like things on their belt.
The Leatherman Tread is a wearable tool that comes in either bracelet or watchband versions. The bracelet has 25 tools built in including a cutting hook, screwdrivers, box wrenches and a bottle opener. Each link has two or three different tools.
While I refuse to wear bracelets because this isn’t the ’80s, I would totally be down with the watchstrap version. Still, I would totally buy the bracelet version in black if it’s sized to allow me to put my Pebble smartwatch on it. A smartwatch with a multitool band sounds fantastic to me.
Pricing is expected to be somewhere around $150 to $200 so it’s not exactly cheap, and I’m assuming that doesn’t include the watch. Still, I want one pretty bad.
