World’s First Smartwatch that Never Needs Charging : Matrix Industries proudly introduced the Matrix PowerWatch, the world’s first smartwatch that uses thermoelectric technology so you never have to recharge or replace its battery. Launched on Indiegogo, the breathtaking mobile device employs breakthrough nano-materials, advanced thermal engineering, and the latest in low power electronics to run exclusively off heat generated from the body. It also uses this technology to measure calories burned and show power generated from the body. The Matrix PowerWatch has a high contrast display, comes with a military-grade nylon strap, and is water resistant up to 50 meters. It is the only smartwatch in the world to feature a power meter which indicates power being generated and power generated for the day.
Matrix PowerWatch smartwatch
The rugged aircraft-grade aluminum timepiece functions as a smartwatch that wirelessly syncs with your smartphone, automatically adjusts to the current time zone, and has changeable watch faces. The device also features advanced activity, sleep, calorie and power tracking functionality and stores up to a year’s worth of data. When you take off the watch, it automatically goes into sleep mode, keeping all the data in memory; it turns on after a few seconds when you put it back on. The Matrix PowerWatch smart device is available now for pre order at Indiegogo and will retail for $169.99 and will ship in July, 2017. Retail prices vary from country to country.
Matrix smartwatch app
The Matrix smartwatch app will show you how many calories you've burned, steps you've taken, and whether you're getting a good night's rest. It will even show you how much electric power you've produced during the day, just like your electric meter at home! Share this data with your friends and setup competitions to see who can burn the most calories or generate the most power.
Thermoelectric technology has been around for decades, but only in limited niche applications like NASA built spacecraft. With the recent advent of low-power electronics, we felt it was the right time to use our thermoelectric technology for a consumer product. The Matrix PowerWatch goes to sleep and runs off battery power where it draws a tiny amount of current. Put it back on and it turns on with the correct time.
