As far as watches go, people use it to tell time. For people with cash to spare, they almost always prefer telling time with elegance and style. That is why luxury watches are still quite popular. But technology is also trying to spur the evolution of the wrist watch by adding more functions to it. With the arrival of smartwatches, people no longer just use it to tell time. It can now keep track of your health data, your phone messages, your location, and who knows what else. People now take on smartwatches for the different functions they can offer. But it may take a special kind of smartwatch like the new Sequent to bring back the elegance and style that classic watches once offered.
The Sequent smartwatch stands above the other smartwatches in the market for one distinct feature- it is the world’s first self-charging smartwatch. Yes, the feature that was once introduced in classic automatic watches are now being used to power the Sequent. What may be an inconvenience for other smartwatch owners is the advantage of this new smartwatch. Owners can continue charge it even as they use it with the kinetic self-charging feature it comes with. The new and patented battery system can transform kinetic energy into electrical energy and power up the smartwatch indefinitely. There is no need to plug in the watch in order to recharge it, as what most smartwatches still require.
Its Swiss luxury watch design gives the Sequent a feel of classic elegance that many stylish people look for in a watch. It still has the features that come with many smartwatches today such as activity and health tracking, heartbeat and pulse sensor, built-in GPS and others. It can also provide users with message and call notifications if required, filtered according to your own needs. The Sequent can even set the local time automatically, a godsend for frequent travelers who might get confused of time zones and local time at each destination they arrive into. The Sequent is also made out of high-grade durable materials and is water resistant for up to 50 meters.
The classic and sleek design of the Sequent may make some people think that it is not a smartwatch at all. This can also be an advantage since there are people who prefer not to let their watch get all the attention. It has recently conducted a very successful crowd funding campaign that will make others take notice. The Sequent is currently available for pre-order at Indiegogo starting at $215 up to $299. It is set to be available in the market sometime in January of next year.
