Uvolt Watch – Solar Powered Watch That Charges Your Smartphone
April 21, 2017
At Highway West Vacations, we always want to have our finger on the pulse of the latest and greatest developments in the camping world, especially when those new products and services help us preserve our natural resources. One of the most exciting new products coming out in the near future is the Uvolt Watch, a solar analog watch that charges your smartphone.
Here’s how it works:
The face of the watch is a solar panel that collects energy and under ideal light conditions, can reach a full charge within a day. The mechanical hands take up minimal space, allowing the solar panel to absorb as much light as possible. The analog configuration also draws less power which helps the watch store energy in a more quick and efficient manner. The face is covered in an anti-reflective mineral glass that also helps ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need a full battery and can’t wait for the power reserve to charge via solar power, each watch comes with a wireless charging dock that can supply you with a full charge in just 45 minutes. You simply place the detachable power reserve on top and it will instantly turn on. To save power, it will automatically turn off once the battery has been removed.
Whether it comes from inside the watch or fresh off the charging dock, each power reserve contains an integrated lightning or USB cable that is compatible with your smartphone. There is also a wireless charging option, meaning that you never have to worry about losing or forgetting wires again! The reserve sits in the aluminum casing of the watch and each link in the band of the watch contains additional batteries that make it possible to charge your phone a second time once the power reserve has been used.
The watch made its debut on Kickstarter and has already reached its goal but there is still time to secure a Uvolt Watch for a great price. Visit their Kickstarter Page to learn more and pre-order your watch today!
We hope to see these solar powered watches on the trails and throughout our Highway West Vacations campgrounds!
