Smart watches need charging.
Smart watches have limited battery life.
The Matrix power watch X, will run forever.
Off of your body heat.
Matrix industries has developed a technology based off thermal gradients that uses your warmth to keep the power going.
It measures skin temperature and case temperature and vents heat from it's ridged-shaped outer case.
Matrix says the temperature sensors
And accurately count calories too.
The Matrix Power Watch X is the second watch from Matrix that's featured this tech.
And adds some smartwatch features like other fitness trackers have.
It tracks steps, sleep, synchs via bluetooth to a phone, get's notifications and even slightly vibrates.
It has a run tracking mode and a stopwatch too.
The big Casio G-Shock style watch, is also 200 meter water resistant, it has an always on screen.
But it lacks extra watch faces or features that other smart watches have.
And at $280, it's also not nearly as affordable as long battery life watches like the tiny [INAUDIBLE] Fitbit.
But what if this tech could make it into other smaller watches or wearables that did more.
Not needing to charge your watch at all is a great feeling.
Is it worth it to spring for a new experimental watch?
Maybe not yet.
But it's a promising start.
