08 Jan Matrix PowerWatch 2 Uses Solar and Body Heat to Power Heart Rate Monitor, GPS Now at CES 2019
Matrix has unveiled a new smartwatch, called the PowerWatch 2, which is loaded with features like step count, heart rate monitor, notification and GPS, and needs only body heat and solar power to run.
Launched at the CES 2019, the PowerWatch 2 is a follow-up to last year’s PowerWatch X that was powered entirely by the body heat emitted from your wrist. However, the watch was missing features like GPS and a heart rate sensor that had become commonplace on most smartwatches. PowerWatch X was left with only step counter.
The PowerWatch 2 is less bulky than its predecessor and will offer a wider variety of color and strap combinations than the original, which had a mostly black look.
