The thing that I dislike about smartwatches was their battery charge dependency. A traditional quartz battery powered watch could run for a fairly long time and if you had an automatic clockwork it would even charge itself, powered by your own motion.
The Matrix PowerWatch works similar. This smartwatch is charged by heat, produced by your body. The manufacturer calls, “you never have to charge it”. It runs neither Apple nor Android software, but you are able to sync the Matrix PowerWatch to the iOS or Android app at least. Check out their introduction video below and have a look at their Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
