Evaluation

This is a groundbreaking innovative smart watch. It uses a low-power electronic cutting-edge technology that collects the difference in temperature between the human body and the surrounding environment, with the heat generated by the body for continuous charging of the smart watch battery without the need to replace the battery or use an external power source. It has a multi-layer shell, the top and bottom of the anodized aluminum, the middle of the insulation material layer, the top and bottom of the temperature difference between the smart watch battery power generated.
