Your mechanical watch will seem more sophisticated with this new watch strap from Montblanc

A smart strap that can be added to most wristwatches and turn them into smart watches has been introduced by the luxury watch brand Montblanc.

Those who adore smartwatches but can’t bear the thought of giving up their mechanical timepieces will find the Twin Smart Strap to be an ideal solution.The gadget is an updated version of their first E-strap, and instead of a clasp, it has a curved monochrome OLED display that can be either color or black and white. Be aware that it is still functional to secure your timepiece, just like any other standard clasp would be.

You have access to all of the available smarts, including the ability to track your basic activities and receive notifications on your phone. You can also use your phone to make payments, so you won’t need to carry around your wallet. This is functional at all VISA and Mastercard payment terminals that are compatible with it. Bluetooth makes it easy to talk to the Montblanc TWIN companion app.

The module is composed of high-quality stainless steel and is encased in a curved piece of unique glass. The module is both thin and lightweight. A high-quality rubber composite is used in the construction of the strap. The entire device has a water resistance rating of IP68 and can function for up to seven days on a single charge.

Nicolas Baretzki, the CEO of Montblanc, says that the company has been able to bridge the gap between analog and digital watchmaking with their new TWIN Smart Strap.

The concept of a smart strap has its origins in the growing desire among watch owners for traditional timepieces to have digital functions added to them. Traditional timepieces are highly sentimental items that have a long and significant history for their owners. Because of this, we came up with a clever solution that can be linked to the majority of watches, regardless of the brand. The clock is left unchanged, while the Montblanc TWIN Smart Strap is a unique companion that beautifully deepens this bond between the two.

The Montblanc TWIN Smart Strap will be available in August 2018, just in case you’re interested in giving your mechanical watch a more modern design. It is anticipated that the selling price will be around 390 euros. The band will be available in a total of four distinct styles: one made of black calf leather, one made of vintage brown calf leather, one made of black nylon, and one made of black nylon with gray stripes.
