About this project

We set sail to manufacture the best, connected smart watch in the world. Building upon traditional Swiss watchmaking we allowed ourselves no compromises.  

SEQUENT has not only solved a major problem of the smart watch industry, which suffers from insufficient battery supply for its devices, but it also generates 100% clean energy. The watch features the newest generation of Heart Rate sensor, GPS tracking and notification system, which can connect by Bluetooth to our proprietary Biofeedback health & sport app.

 

Based on a traditional Swiss automatic watch movement, we have developed and patented the world’s first kinetic self-charging battery system, transforming kinetic energy into electrical energy to power the Sequent smart watch.

Therefore, the great news is that NO MORE ADDITIONAL CHARGING from socket-outlets or coin cell batteries is required. 

 

 

 

 

Physical exercise is an essential part of mental and psychological well-being. To keep track of how much you move, just check the SuperCharger power indicationof the watch. The more you move, the more you charge the SEQUENT SuperCharger.

 

We have developed smart features to let you choose who or what is allowed to interrupt. The watch dial indicates the power reserve and activity performance. 

With Filtered notifications the SEQUENT SuperCharger watch makes sure only the important things come through. Let You control the technology, and not vice versa.

 

 

 

If you are a lateral thinker, revolutionist, watch aficionado or simply love to wear the most innovative smart watch available on the market, then you are most welcome to join us.

Swiss horological engineering, the highest quality standards of manufacture, and affordable prices are not contradictory for us. When all three factors meet, then innovation and luxury can be a lot of fun. 

Kickstarter allows us to deliver the first SEQUENT edition, directly from our factory to your home, cutting out all middlemen like wholesalers, distributors and retailers, which saves up to 50% of the future retail price.

Technically speaking: 

An average moving person causes the oscillating weight of our watch to make about 4'000 revolutions per day. This results in approximately 17'000 spring-jumps of the spring barrel per day. This energy is conveyed to the newly developed Micro Generator System, which will generate additional energy that is then stored in the rechargeable high-performance battery.

To guarantee the quality and performance of the self-charging battery system, we have teamed up with Kinetron, the world leading manufacturer of Micro Generator Systems.

Risks and challenges

Forecasting & Supply Chain Risk

The production of SEQUENT is a challenging, yet forward-looking project and we all believe we can make this happen. In the ongoing manufacturing process, minor design changes can happen to further increase the usability.

We are a start up company and don't have the human and financial resources like large corporations, however we were able to join forces with the most talented, independent and successful manufactures and developers in the industry. We all have one thing in common! We share the same passion and vision to bring this breakthrough technology to the market.

We worked for months with our partners, to source identify the pitfalls that might potentially threaten the project. We have spent countless hours on product research and development, components sourcing, and have also put our own money into the company to pre-finance feasibility studies and prototyping.

But sometimes forecasts don’t always work as initially planned. Should we miss projections, we’ll let you know and solve the problem immediately.

Furthermore we promise complete transparency, and we will communicate on a regular basis with our backers.
