Swiss brand Sequent, a leading smart-technology start-up, specializes in providing cutting-edge solutions for the consumer health care sector. The brand first entered the watchmaking world in 2017, with its record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. In the process of launching the company’s inaugural model, the SuperCharger1, Sequent raised over $1,200,000 in pre-orders, making its campaign the most successful to ever come out of Switzerland at the time. Having successfully delivered its revolutionary smartwatches to over 135 countries, the brand is returning to the Kickstarter platform with its second release, the Sequent SuperCharger2.
As with the inaugural model launched in 2017, the SuperCharger2 uses a self-winding mechanism to charge an eco-friendly capacitor that can power several useful functions at once. Additionally, this second generation of Sequent smartwatches will introduce a Crypto Currency reward program, conceived to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Essentially, the Sequent SuperCharger2 is a direct successor to the Supercharger1, bringing together all of the experience and feedback gained from launching a new product. One thing that has not changed is the design credentials the Sequent team brings to the table: In 2019, the brand received its first Red Dot design award, validating its efforts to produce a highly functional smartwatch that is also a beautiful and desirable object.
“The Sequent SuperCharger, a smartwatch equipped with a hybrid charging system, is an exciting, innovative idea whose sustainability is convincing,” announced the international jury of the Red Dot Design Award.
For fans of traditional watchmaking, one of the most appealing aspects of the Sequent range has to be the oscillating weight used to power the movement and its many functions. The more the wearer moves, the more 100% clean kinetic energy is converted into electrical power, which supports the high-precision sensors that track your activities. And the more active you are, the more “SQ Coins” you can earn. Generated by the cutting edge Sequent BioFeedback app, this special cryptocurrency can be used to unlock financial advantages for additional health services and products.
Thanks to the automatic winding weight, working in conjunction with the highly durable and efficient capacity, millions of batteries could be saved every year, thus reducing the carbon footprint of Sequent wearers the world over. Furthermore, the dials and watchbands (which are available in a range of colors) are made from recycled ocean plastics.
At 42mm-wide, the watch is slightly smaller than its predecessor. There are two case material options available — the Sport option in aluminum and the Steel edition in traditional 316L stainless steel. In conjunction with the easy-to-use app, the Sequent SuperCharger2 can track your activity during the day and night, the roads and distance you traveled using a built-in GPS, how much C02 your lifestyle is saving, and your current time zone (as well as adjusting accordingly when you cross into a different zone). The watch also offers notification functionality, an alarm, and water-resistance to 50 meters.
The Sequent SuperCharger2 is one of the most advanced, true-hybrid watches on the market. It will be available from August 26th on Kickstarter, with prices starting at just $179. Learn more about the product and brand philosophy at sequentworld.com.
