Battery life can often be a deciding factor when it comes to buying a fitness tracker or smartwatch. But what if you never had to worry about battery life again?
Launched on Kickstarter earlier this month, Sequent is a hybrid smartwatch with a self-charging battery system which provides infinite power supply. Yes, this means no more plugging into socket-outlets or purchasing cell coin battery replacements. The watch actually transforms kinetic energy into electrical energy, i.e. it charges as you move around!
“We are the first ones who mastered the transformation of kinetic “100% clean” energy into infinite electrical energy to power a smart watch,” said Petra Guhl, the Swiss company’s CEO.
“Some already say that we will become the TESLA of the smart watches and wearable industry as we share the same vision.”
Three years in the making, the modern looking device comes with some pretty decent specs as well. It packs an accelerometer, heart rate sensor and even built-in GPS. The watch will keep tabs on your activity around the clock and dish out notifications from your smartphone. It also comes with a proprietary Biofeedback health and sport app for deeper analysis of your activity.
As you would expect from a Swiss design, the timepiece is made from high grade materials to guarantee quality and durability. Finally, there are a variety of interesting strap designs to choose from, and everything comes stamped with a 50 metre water resistant rating.
