Montblanc‘s luxury accessories range from writing instruments to jewelry and watches. Now, the classic German brand is hopping on the smartwatch bandwagon with its new smart band. Like any other Montblanc item, this one manages to straddle traditional craftsmanship and present zeitgeist very well.
Which means: for those still dedicated to their traditional watches, Montblanc’s new product was designed for you. The TWIN Smart Strap doesn’t replace a classic timepiece with tech. Instead, it complements it by transforming a traditional watch into a high-tech hybrid device.
The smart strap enables watch wearers to get the best of both worlds; wearers can keep their beloved classic watch face and just add the new smart strap to keep up to date. The TWIN features a discretely located curved screen that is worn on the inside of the wrist, keeping tech associations gracefully out of sight.
Using the TWIN, wearers can make digital payments, keep track of steps taken, and monitor communications and personal data. The unit is fabricated from a high-quality rubber composite for durability and comfort.
Customers can choose from a number of different style options when ordering the TWIN, including bands covered in black nylon, black calf leather, or vintage brown calf leather.
Montblanc’s TWIN Smart Strap comes in 20mm and 22mm iterations, and is paired with an iOS companion app. It is available from $455.
