Before they could ever utter the words "If you can't beat em, join em", Montblanc readies itself with its own wearable while still respecting its analog watch business. They've done this with an accessory called the Timewalker Urban Speed e-Strap, a special bluetooth accessory that is attached to the strap and gives you information such as physical activity data, phone notifications, music controls, "find me" function, and more.
The device comes with a strap of its own, but can be attached to any 20 or 22mm strap. It will be compatible with iOS and Android and specifically will have compatibility with select Samsung phones, select Android 4.3 devices, and iOS devices ranging from the 4S all the way to the iPhone 6. Battery life is rated at 5 days and can be recharged via Micro USB. The device will be included with three new upcoming Timewalker watches and will be on sale by itself for EUR 350.
