With this new smartwatches trend, Swatch has been thinking about this for a while, and now CEO Nick Hayek is saying that we can expect in in the next three months. What’s most interesting, however, is Hayek’s claim of a smartwatch that doesn’t have to be charged.
There is so much potential in this kind of watch, one of the most notorious feature is that it can be an “automatic” watch with an generator spun by the motion of an eccentric-weighted rotor. But there is another way, use a watch cell battery, which would offer a much longer battery life than a rechargeable lithium-based battery.
However it’s unlikely that this device will run Android Wear, but it appears Swatch won’t just offer something simple. It’s expected to be compatible with not only Android, but Windows too.
