Sequent aims to eliminate the hassles of recurrent battery charging in smart watches. The company’s latest self-charging smart watch, inspired by the winding process in conventional Swiss watches, draws power from the kinetic energy of the wearer.

Although the concept of harnessing the motion energy isn’t new, the smart watch impresses with is hybrid features, including a heart rate sensor, activity tracker, GPS, Bluetooth, and a notification system, notes The Verge.

Currently, in a crowdfunding stage on Kickstarter, the Sequent smart watch could hit the markets by December this year at a ballpark price of $189, writes Uber Gizmo
