MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Matrix Industries first unveiled the Matrix PowerWatch, a thermoelectric-powered smartwatch that never requires charging on Indiegogo in November 2016. After an overwhelming response from consumers, raising nearly 10 times its goal, Matrix announced its new PowerWatch X model and won CES’s prestigious Last Gadget Standing Competition.
With a larger, more aggressive design, the new X model has greater thermoelectric generating capability and is able to support added features, including a much requested vibration motor for alerts and notifications. Also, with the more substantial body, the PowerWatch X is four times stronger and sports a 200 meter water resistance rating, making it the toughest smartwatch in the world.
PowerWatch and PowerWatch X use thermal engineering and the latest in low power electronics to enable being powered exclusively off body-generated heat. These technologies deliver a precise measurement of calories burned, feature advanced activity, sleep and most uniquely, a power meter, which shows how much power the user is producing. All these features helped Matrix win CES’s Last Gadget Standing, a competition presented by Living in Digital Times with over 1100 companies participating in this year’s edition.
Matrix PowerWatch X is available for pre-order for a limited time on Indiegogo and will retail for $249.99 when it ships in October 2017. With only three days left in the campaign, Matrix is offering it at a time-limited rate of $159 until the campaign ends in two days. More information at: Matrixindustries.com
The rugged aircraft-grade aluminum smartwatch wirelessly syncs with your smartphone, automatically adjusts to the current time zone, and accurately tracks activity, sleep, calories and power. The Matrix PowerWatch has a high contrast display, comes with a military-grade nylon strap, and is 50 meters water resistant. It is the only smartwatch in the world to feature a power meter which indicates power being generated.
