They have come up with a brilliant solution to this small battery power- it’s a solar energy smartwatch- LunaR
The latest smartwatch comes in the form of LunaR on Kickstarter, which is world’s first solar-powered watch with plenty of features and a chic design. With the next-generation proprietary technology, LunaR is made up of a transparent solar panel that will harvest the power from the sun and artificial (indoor) light, which keeps it charged almost everytime.
Having its name from the moon and working on the solar power technology, LunaR is inspired by the perpetual cycle of the sun and the moon, as mentioned by Gavin Brown, Chief Designer of LunaR. He further added, “We created a device that combines the appealing look of a classic wristwatch with the functionality of a modern smartwatch. And because it captures both natural and artificial light, you could go years without ever needing to charge it.”
