Matrix Industries reports completion of work on the new smart watches, which are called Matrix PowerWatch and use a new method of obtaining energy. According to the developer, the product uses a thermoelectric generator that could make so compact and efficient to use in watches.
To work smart watches Matrix PowerWatch simply wear them on your arm, and your body heat will provide the necessary energy, which is converted by the thermoelectric generator. The inner part of the watch through the metal panel absorbs heat, while the outer part always remains cool. The temperature difference between the two parties allows the technology to work.
The manufacturer notes that when the watch is not worn, they automatically go into sleep mode with low power consumption, receiving power from the internal battery. It does not allow the clocks to stop supporting the current time and date.
Matrix PowerWatch run on the operating system Android Wear, can be synchronized with smartphones via Bluetooth, allowing you to always be using the correct time zone, and customize the design of the dial. Unfortunately, the functionality of the novelty can not boast of great success, yielding in this respect to many fitness bracelets.
But such a watch can more accurately tell how many calories you burned during a workout as they monitor small variations in body temperature. Currently, the smart watch is available for pre-order at a price of $170, their delivery should begin in July next year.
