This self-charging smartwatch turns your wrist’s motions into an endless supply of power




Sitting at the intersection between smartwatches and mechanical watches, the Sequent Titanium Elektron offers the best of both worlds – the activity/fitness tracking features of a smartwatch or fitness band, and the accurate time-telling and everlasting power supply of a Swiss-made mechanical watch.

The Titanium Elektron eliminates the one major compromise with most smartwatches – the fact that you have to routinely charge them. It does so by refining and upgrading a technology that has existed in mechanical watches for years but hasn’t really seen mass adoption by tech companies, that have wholly embraced the lithium-ion battery movement. You see, lithium-ion batteries have their obvious merits… they can store and deliver enough power to operate computers and processors, but they need repetitive charging. Moreover, they degrade over time and eventually die, playing right into a tech company’s strategy of planned obsolescence. Watchmakers, on the other hand, design products for life. A good Swiss-made watch can last centuries, can be fixed/repaired, and can be passed down generations. It also requires less power than a smartwatch, hence the mechanical movement – although Switzerland-based company Sequent has found a unique middle-ground. The Titanium Elektron relies on an upgraded version of the traditional mechanical movement, using a moving rotor to generate electrical energy. The rotor moves based on your own wrist movements and on gravity, and harvests small bursts of energy that add up, keeping the watch charged throughout the day. This unique harvesting mechanism uses an 8-part design that works silently, and with 10x more precision than your average Swiss Chronometer. The watch has its own battery-saving mode too, and will automatically power down when not worn, conserving the battery for 12 months. As soon as you wear it, the watch automatically powers on and reflects the current time.

Titanium Elektron Self-Charging Smartwatch + Fitness Tracker by Sequent

Aside from being a marvel of engineering and micro-energy harvesting, the Titanium Elektron is a remarkably well-designed watch too. It comes with an outer body machined from solid titanium, capped on the front as well as the back with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The back reveals the watch’s unique rotor design, in the center of which sits its heartbeat sensor that works 24×7, monitoring your vitals, activity, fitness, and your sleep. The Titanium Elektron’s subdial gives you a reading of your current heart rate, while all your fitness data is available on-demand on the watch’s companion app titled Oxygen. The app monitors your activity, workouts, and heart rate, while also allowing you to track sleep and fitness goals all within one comprehensive dashboard. The watch’s face sports a modern minimal design along with SuperLuminova-coated markings and hands. It automatically updates time when you’re crossing time zones (by syncing with your phone), and will even tell you the watch’s battery level by pressing down on the crown.

The Titanium Elektron series are designed and assembled in Switzerland, under the guidance of horology specialists. The collection is available across multiple variants (models with HR mentioned at the end come with the heart-rate meter on the watch-face) including one with a transparent tinted dial that lets you see the Titanium Elektron’s circuitry underneath, and a special all-white variant approved by NASA with the space agency’s monogram in red on the pure-white dial. Each Titanium Elektron timepiece is designed to be waterproof up to 50 meters and comes with a 5-year warranty. Sequent ensures its watches are sustainably made too – aside from the fact that the watches don’t come with large lithium-ion batteries that degrade over time, Sequent pledges to plant 10 trees for each watch sold.
