Thermoelectric Energy Watch
Developed in collaboration with an ETH Zurich Spin-off company MITHRAS Technology in Switzerland, “Heat-sync” is an e-paper smartwatch using thermoelectric technology to convert body heat into electrical energy, to provide the watch an autonomous energy supply.
“Heat-sync” visualises and reinforces the principles of thermoelectric technology(TEG). The copper and graphene coating watch band collects heat from the wrist and the stainless steel watch case works as a heatsink for cooling - 60 fins echo with the minute hand. The energy is generated by the temperature difference between the watch case and the band.
