Matrix Powerwatch is a groundbreaking smartwatch that employs low power electronics and runs exclusively off body heat, with no need for batteries or chargers. The design enhances the thermoelectric engineering and nano-materials of the watch. The multilayered case features a top and a bottom layer of anodized aluminum and a middle layer of thermal insulating material. The bottom layer absorbs body heat, while the top layer senses the temperature in the environment. The difference in temperature between the two layers generates the energy to power the smartwatch. In these energy-conscious times, Matrix Powerwatch is a revolutionary example of sustainable product development.

Matrix Powerwatch won the 2017 iF Design Award and the 2017 Good Design Award.
