The most innovative multitool we've seen in years.

Seldom are we surprised by a multitool. But we've done a double take with the Leatherman Tread, which is designed to be worn around the wrist like a luxury watch. 

The Tread is made from corrosion-resistant stainless-steel links. Each link features either two or three tools, including a box wrench, multiple screwdrivers, cutting hook, hex drives, and even a carbide glass breaker. Slotted fasteners let you mix and match links or add new ones depending on your needs. Take note: You won't have a blade attachment like you would with a standard folding Leatherman model, but that works to the advantage of those passing through airport security. 

For $50 more, you can get the Leatherman Tread with a Swiss-made watch face.
