The Matrix PowerWatch needs not be charged as it's powered by your body heat
The Matrix PowerWatch features a power meter that shows you how much electricity your body is producing, which sounds pretty cool and a little bit ominous – after all, this is a computerized machine that's using your body's energy to power itself, which might explain the inspiration behind how it's named. Still, in addition to converting heat to electrical charge, the smartwatch is able to accurately measure the calories you burn, as well as your activity and sleep. Built out of rugged aluminum, the watch is also water-resistant at up to 50 meters.
Like most wearables on the market, the Matrix PowerWatch syncs with a smartphone app that shows all the data accumulated by the gadget. It will support Apple Healthkit and Google Fit integration so you can take advantage of the data inside these apps.
In the works since 2014, the Matrix PowerWatch is currently in deep testing and scheduled to hit mass production in September next year. Funded via Indiegogo, it's already raised 85% of its funding goal with 2 months left until the campaign has ended. Early backers can still pre-order a unit for $99, saving 41% off the suggested $170 retail price.
