Matrix Launches PowerWatch 2 Luxe to Celebrate $1.6m in Pre-orders

The solar and body heat powered smartwatch finds lots of backers.

Matrix Industries announced the extension of their PowerWatch 2 pre-order campaign for an additional 15-days. In the first 31 days the company raised $1.6m from 7,500 backers on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo. To celebrate the milestone the company launches the PowerWatch 2 Luxe Edition. PowerWatch 2 Luxe is available for pre-order today for a limited run of 1000 Series 1 units ($699 MSRP). Existing PowerWatch 2 backers can upgrade to the Luxe edition.

The Matrix PowerWatch 2 Luxe Edition features a quick-release, 22mm shark mesh stainless steel strap, and comes in either Black or Gold finishes. Backers who pre-order PW2 Luxe will be treated to a rich, limited edition packaging, hand-crafted using premium materials. The Luxe also ships with a spring bar tool for band changes, and a plated warranty card.

PowerWatch 2 unique proposition is that you are supposed to not have to recharge it. The smartwatch is designed with improved thermoelectric generators and all-new solar-cell technology, constantly generating more than enough energy to operate the built-in intelligent heart rate monitor.

PowerWatch 2 is the first watch with a full-color LCD display powered by thermoelectric and solar energy.

An always-on onboard GPS makes PowerWatch 2 the ultimate tool for anyone mapping out their run, hike or ride, and allows users to leave their phones at home.

The PowerWatch 2 comes with iOS/Android companion apps providing users with health and fitness metrics, including the most accurate calorie count industry-wide, pace, distance, steps, sleep, cadence, and more. PowerWatch 2 will also integrate third-party fitness platforms like Apple HealthKit and Google Fit, and is water resistant up to 200m.

Matrix Industries plans to ship the PowerWatch 2 in June.
