The Montblanc TimeWalker Urban Speed e-Strap combines wearable technology with fine watchmaking. For the first time, you can wear a mechanical timepiece with useful digital functions.
This application is your companion for connecting both worlds. Using Bluetooth low energy, your smartphone will connect with the e-Strap device on the wrist. The e-Strap can be set up within the app and the activity tracker provides metrics of your fitness activity.
The digital functions in detail:
Smart notifications provide you with alerts of incoming communication without the need to pull out your smartphone. You can preview e-mails by topic, read text messages, see incoming calls, status updates from social media feeds and reminders of upcoming calendar events.
The activity tracker is a simple tool for monitoring your physical activity over time. It keeps track of your personal daily goals. It measures the number of steps, calories burnt and distance covered. The progress per week and month is stored locally in the app, providing you with full control over your data. The e-Strap reminds you to stay active via unobtrusive vibration alerts and shows daily progress at a glance.
The remote controls are used to control the smartphone via the e-Strap. The camera remote enables you to take smartphone pictures by triggering the shutter with a tap on the e-Strap. This allows easier and better selfies and group shots. Playing, pausing, and skipping music on the smartphone can also be remotely steered with the e-Strap’s music control function.
Additionally, the Find-Me function allows you to search for the watch or phone, either by tapping on the e-Strap to find the smartphone or by using the e-Strap app to find the watch.
The e-Strap uses the iPhone GPS functionality. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
- Fixes imprecise translations
- Fixes the issue that Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean and Japanese characters are not displayed properly on the e-Strap
Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't work on 6 plus
Bought a watch for 5k and e-strap functionality is useless because the app crashes every time I open it. Very disappointing for a Montblanc product.
Doesn’t download on iPhone 8+
Can’t download at all. Looks like an orphaned app.
I still have the watch and e-strap (both working). Montblanc doesn’t seem to care...
