Luxury watch brand Montblanc has entered the wearable technology market, choosing to add a device to its straps instead of turning its analogue timepieces into smartwatches.
With a five day battery life, rechargeable via micro-USB, the Timewalker Urban Speed e-Strap connects to an Android or iOS smartphone via Bluetooth and can work as a remote camera trigger or control for a music player, vibrate to alert the wearer to incoming texts, calls, emails and social media activity, and collect physical activity data for an accompanying app on the user’s phone.
“Why isn’t Montblanc simply producing a smartwatch that combines technology with luxury watch design and materials? Well according to most people in the luxury watch world, that isn’t what most of their consumers want” – Ariel Adams of A Blog to Watch.

Dutch design collective Studio Diip has added wheels and sensors to a fish tank so that its inhabitant can drive it by swimming in a certain direction.
As the fish swims around the transparent tank, a webcam positioned above the water tracks its movements – detecting the contrast between the fish and the bottom of the tank – and relays them to an Arduino programmable microchip, which then mimics the fish’s movements by driving the vehicle in the same direction.
