We have reported on Swatch before, and how they intend to get into the smartwatch business. Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek says that the first step is making a smartwatch with a very strong battery would be the first step.
In their case, they are attempting to make a battery for a smartwatch that will last six months. I have to admit this is a good idea, as a lot of smartwatches have to be charged once per day. If smartwatches are supposed to do what they are supposed to, then they have to last a while.
So far, Swatch is working on a Touch line of watches, which include the Touch Zero for volleyball players earlier this year. I have no idea how much the charge that the Touch Zero can hold, but I believe that Swatch has the right idea. Any smartwatch that has a battery life of a half a year is easily worth the price of purchase compared to the Apple Watch, Moto 360, and others.
According to my Source, the findings of this long-lasting battery project are going to be used in cars. So does this mean that we will be seeing a long lasting battery in a car, why not a cellular phone? Well, hopefully this will not be the only way that smartphones will influence technology.
