LunaR – The World’s First Solar Powered Smartwatch
If you talk to anyone with a smartwatch, one of the main features they’ll gage its performance by is the battery. Which is why it’s always seemed like the prospect of solar powered smartwatch will be a serious breakthrough for the market. Well, the time is now. Introducing LunaR, the world’s first solar powered smartwatch.
LunaR combines ergonomic functionality and a timeless design with breakthrough solar technology. Designed with travellers, outdoor enthusiasts and watch aficionados in mind, LunaR is a modern, self-sustaining and functional wearable that will keep you connected, informed and on time––without the need to plug in and recharge.
LunaR can rely on both natural and artificial light. With a daily exposure of as little as 1 hour, LunaR’s in-built solar panel can harvest enough power to deliver infinite battery life. It does also come with a charger just in case, but chances are you’ll never need it. You can easily check your watch’s current light-harvesting levels through the accomanying LunaR app.
Alongside the solar powered tech, LunaR’s key features include all your standard smartwatch fare; texts and call notifications, social media updates, pedometer, calories intake monitor, and sleep monitor. You can also track sunrise and sunset times via the panel of the watch and it’ll also send an alert when you should get outside and recharge.
The LunaR is finished in a matte metal casing and buttons and keeps things nice and minimalist with clean black and white hands. It’s simple, stylish and, most important when it comes to a smartwatch, not too bulky. It’s also waterproof up to 50 metres deep.
The LunaR solar powered smartwatch is currently being funded over on Kickstarter where, with just under a couple of weeks of funding to go, it’s already smashed its target. Head over to the LunaR Kickstarter Website where you can hold of one for around £105 ($138). Deliveries are expected in December this year.
