Smartwatch that converts body heat into a power supply

Limited battery power in smartwatches reduces their efficacy when sometimes our requirement for them to be functioning is crucial

Heat-sync utilises thermoelectric technology to create an autonomous stable power supply by con-verting body heat into electrical energy. The device works by transforming the temperature differ-ences between two axes: the heat from the wrist and the stainless-steel case as a heat sink. The greater the differences, the more power can be generated, reducing energy burden, whilst provid-ing a quality display.
