Swiss smartwatch brand SEQUENT is revolutionizing the watchmaking space by introducing a self-charging, sustainable, and maintenance-free wearable called the Elektron watch. According to reliable sources, the new watch will be available for preorder on Kickstarter from May 26th, 2021.
For those unaware, SEQUENT Elektron is specifically made for everyday wear and is integrated with solar-powered indices that can glow in low light. The watch is not required to be charged again due to its patented automated micromechanical movement.
