Coming Soonish‽ Apple Watch With Leatherman Tread Band‽ 

   Photo: Mockup of Leatherman Tread with smart watch Pebble by Rajrdajr on Reddit.  Ever since the Leatherman Tread was revealed in January (now available at Cabelas), I have dreamed of pairing Tread with Apple Watch as a band.  While Leatherman will sell the Tread with a “dumb watch” in 2015 (in Autumn), they are seeking to match it with an Apple watch in the semi-distant future.  @lexiatwork Yay! 😀 So far it's a fun tool to use!
