From Smartwatch Brands to Smartwatch Bands

By  |  0 Comments

There has been an obvious outburst of smartwatch releases over the past few months, but similar concepts keep flowing through the pipeline with nothing to differentiate one smartwatch from another.

In response, Montblanc is creating a smartwatch that isn’t really a smartwatch: it’s a classic watch with a smartband!

This NATO-style watch band, commonly referred to as the “e-Strap,” offers many of the same smartwatch features, yet leaves the classic watch face untouched.

Picture a 0.9 inch monochrome OLED screen that texts, calls, receives notifications, has calendar info, and more, all via Bluetooth.  The band will even have a monitor that tracks motion.  If only it had a monitor to track the success of the product after its release…  Montblanc’s new Urban Speed watches are expected to hit shelves this June.

Watch wearers can soon get the best of both worlds: classy masterpiece on one side, and tech innovation on the other. Now’s the time to get excited for it.
