The Matrix PowerWatch

I would like to start this post off by asking an important question. Would you purchase a smartwatch from a manufacturer other than your phone manufacturer or a smartwatch with limited app functionality? What if a smartwatch solved one of the largest problems about smartwatches but the app functionality was limited or it didn’t communicate with your phone very well, would you still purchase the smartwatch? This is an interesting question because Apple has made the Apple Watch work so well with the iPhone and enables quite a bit of functionality for a smartwatch. Samsung, too, offers smartwatches that I don’t think are very far behind from Apple as far as user experience goes. I am all about functionality and the user experience, so if a smartwatch was released that didn’t work well with the phone I have then that is probably going to be a deal breaker, for me. Because of this, it leads me back to my original question, would you purchase a smartwatch from a manufacturer other than your smartphone manufacturer?  I ask this because there is a smartwatch coming out that you’re going to find very fascinating and that is feature-packed, but the manufacturer is not a phone manufacturer and it only offers “micro-applications” and notifications, so app functionality will most likely be limited. If you’re all about specs and features then the Matrix PowerWatch should intrigue you. What if I told you that you didn’t have to charge the Matrix PowerWatch when you take it off? What if I told you that the watch would be “charging” while on your wrist? You would probably think, “tell me more!”, right? Below is some information on The Matrix PowerWatch and it is actually pretty impressive.

The Matrix PowerWatch

What we know:

  • It is the first smartwatch that you never have to charge.
  • It offers the most accurate calorie burn count.
  • Water resistant up to 50 meters.
  • Tracks activity, sleep quality, steps, and calories burned as you would expect.
  • Only one model will offer notifications.
  • Has the ability to use “micro-applications” which hints that the functionality will be limited.
  • Has an app that allows customization to the interface.


The unknowns:

  • How well will this smartwatch work with iOS and Android?
  • What will the app functionality look like?
  • Since it never has to be charged while off of your wrist, how well will the display look and function?
  • How will the large and rugged look be accepted by more than just the outdoors people?
  • Will this feature-packed smartwatch offer enough for people to click the “Buy it now” button?

We would love to hear your thoughts and comments on this smartwatch. I can’t wait for this smartwatch to be released because I am interested to see how well it works and, most importantly, how it is perceived in this industry.
