Since most people aren’t crazy about the idea of charging their watch every night, MIT Technology Review reports that a Bay Area tech startup called Matrix Industries has designed the PowerWatch, a smart timepiece that’s powered by body heat.
The PowerWatch is akin to a Fitbit, in that it counts your calorie intake and steps, and monitors your sleep.
But unlike most fitness trackers, the watch actually gets a boost when you exercise.
"When you exercise, your skin gets warmer, so you'll generate more power," Akram Boukai, the co-founder and CEO of Matrix Industries, told CNNMoney.
