Leatherman's new wearable multi-tool


Available this summer, the Leatherman Tread is a bracelet or wristwatch with steel links that double as box wrenches, screwdrivers, and other tools.

The bracelet is due out this summer while the Tread with integrated wristwatch will be available in the fall.


"The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family," Leatherman president Ben Rivera says on the company's blog. "I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying a knife, when what they had actually seen was my Skeletool. I was unwilling to give it up, so they made me take it all the way back to my hotel room. I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security."
