A SELF-CHARG­ING SMARTWATCH.­quent­ | Goal: CHF 80,000 Raised: CHF 709,909 from 2,770 back­ers RPP: From ~US$440

Swiss-made watches have a cer­tain sense of cal­i­bre (as well as a cer­tain eye-wa­ter­ing price tag), and this suc­cess­fully funded cam­paign looks to be no dif­fer­ent. How­ever, where the Sequent Watch looks to dis­tin­guish it­self from the rest of the pack is through its claim that it can gen­er­ate its own power. This is ap­par­ently the world’s first ki­netic self-charg­ing bat­tery sys­tem for a smartwatch. That means, when you get the watch, you don’t need to charge it — ever. All you need to do is move around. This means the watch is great for the ac­tive per­son. If that fact (and its swish Swiss de­sign) hasn’t al­ready got you reach­ing for your wal­let, it comes with a col­lec­tion of smartwatch fea­tures, in­clud­ing GPS, heart-rate sen­sor, Blue­tooth and a use­ful health com­pan­ion app that trans­lates all that goodly data into easy-tounder­stand graphs so you can keep an eye on your ac­tiv­ity through­out the day and night. What’s more, you can set alarms, it’s wa­ter re­sis­tant to 50m and it looks amaz­ing!
