The Leatherman Tread QM1 Multitool Watch

Leatherman introduced the first ever multi-tool that can actually be worn as a watch. I’m usually pretty skeptical of these types of gimmicky items, but this thing was actually pretty cool, and felt like it could take a beating.

It’s made with corrosion resistant 17-4 stainless steel links, with each link having two to three functional tools. The tools include things like a cutting hook, hex drives, screwdrivers, box wrenches, and a carbide glass breaker. It’s expected out in September, with a bracelet only version hitting the marketplace in May.
