Imagine a world where like plants you can utilize the power of the sun to its full potential. Here is a watch that can do just that. A combination of a modern smartwatch with classic aesthetics, the LunaR is the first solar-powered smartwatch.
Modern smartwatches are not really very smart when it comes to battery life and the requirement of charging them using conventional power sources. For the truly modern, smart and environmentally conscious individual solar power should be a natural choice and that is what LunaR has created. The LunaR collection is the world’s first watch with a transparent solar power panel that harvest sun’s energy to deliver infinite battery life. This means, with daily exposure of less than an hour, you not only save on the need to charge your phone with a power chord every day, you also use a renewable source of energy with no extra effort or cost.
LunaR has been created by a team of developers based in San Francisco California inspired by the perpetual cycle of the moon and the sun. The watch can track activity; sleep and can also send you notifications from your social network. The companion app can also easily notify you of events from your phone.
- Solar Charging by harvesting the sun’s energy to deliver infinite battery life
- Discreet and quick notifications for texts, calls, and social media, through an embedded LED and vibrations
- Activity tracking such as steps, distance, calories and sleep data with feedback to reach your daily movement targets
- Water resistance up to 50 meters depth
- Sunrise and sunset tracking functionality alerting users to the amount of time left for outdoor activities
- An analog watch that displays dual time zones, keeping you always in sync with co-workers, friends, and family living in different time zones
Perfect Timekeeper and Tracker
LunaR is an aesthetically designed timepiece which is perfect for a frequent traveler and someone who loves outdoor activities. Additionally, the classy and minimalistic look also makes LunaR a natural fit for formal occasions and indoor meetings. It is the use of smart technology without compromising on the design appeal of a wearable accessory. If you have been a fan of the mechanical watches, you will notice how LunaR has retained that functionality and allows you to twist the crown to set the time. It is these little things that make it all the more special.
What is also special is that the watch can actually prompt you to spend that crucial time in the sun every day to help you as well as the watch get re-energized from the power of the sun. If that is not possible every time, LunaR can also get charged using an artificial light source, thus allowing you to go years without recharging it!
In the Box
In the box you get the LunaR watch with a silver-grey sun themed dial, a nylon strap and a USB charger in case you need to charge it – though chances are rare. LunaR also gives the option of swapping the strap with metal, knitted or distressed leather strap choices that you can additionally buy.
To say LunaR could be the next best innovation in smartwatches is not an understatement. It is the ability to harness sun’s energy and still look so cool that makes this watch a must-have for fashion aficionados and outdoor adventure seekers alike. Are you ready to get one for yourself?
