As smartwatches slowly rise in prominence, the manufacturers grow bolder with their innovations. The Powerwatch X is one such product — behind a deceptively simple and rugged smartwatch lies a battery that is able to be recharged from the users own bodyheat. While this concept isn’t necessarily new, the optimisation of the latest iteration of the Powerwatch X makes it much more viable as something beyond a gimmick as it’s now able to include Bluetooth connectivity, fitness tracking applications and a vibration motor for notifications.
