Swatch works on revolutionary smartwatch battery

People who live in the current digital age have a major problem – they have to constantly check the battery level of their smartphones, tablets, notebooks, MP3 players, feature phones, smartwatches, etc. to make sure the batteries are charged. While currently there’s no solution to this problem there might be some hope for people who own smartwatches – the famous watch and smartwatch maker Swatch has announced it is working on a new “revolutionary” rechargeable battery for smartwatches that will provide much longer battery life. As a comparison a modern smartwatch needs to be charged every 24-48 hours in order to work.

Unfortunately there’s very little information on the battery except that, according to Swatch, it will be able to provide power to a smartwatch for up to 6 months on a single charge. Swatch works on the battery along with Renata, which happens to be the watchmaker’s battery company and the new battery will be out next year. It does not seem to depend on lithium-ion technology but the tech tricks used are unclear. What’s even more interesting is that Swatch claims the new battery can be used in automobiles too, which may make the future of electricity-powered automobiles brighter than it is today.

There’s no more information on this new interesting battery so stay tuned to our web site for more details when they become available.
