When Leatherman first introduced the Tread multitool bracelet a couple of years back, my first thought was, “Wow. That’s a brilliant idea!”
After all, the Tread put 29 different tools right on your wrist, allowing you to easily take them anywhere that you wanted to go, including onboard an airplane. But as a guy who doesn’t wear much in the way of jewelry, I soon realized that this probably wasn’t a product aimed at me.
On the other hand, I do wear a watch every day. In fact, it is one of the first things I put on in the morning and it stays on my wrist until I’m ready to go to bed each night. When the Tread was introduced, I thought that it would make the perfect watchband, providing plenty of functionality by upgrading the watch that I already wear. Fast forward two years, and that is exactly what the Tread Tempo has brought to the table.
