Introducing LunaR, the world's first solar powered smartwatch.

LunaR combines intelligent functionality and a timeless aesthetic with breakthrough solar technology. Designed with travelers, outdoor enthusiasts and watch aficionados in mind, LunaR is a modern, self-sustaining and functional wearable that will keep you connected, informed and on time––without the need to plug in and recharge.

Designing LunaR

The LunaR team has put endless hours and effort into designing LunaR and optimizing its solar-harvesting capabilities. We’ve made countless prototypes. Tested. Refined. Redesigned. And finally reached a result that satisfied our thirst to redefine the smartwatch landscape.  

As Chief Designer, Gavin has been responsible for the design ethics and optimized comfort of LunaR. Known for an aversion to the word “no,” he helped the team push boundaries farther than they thought possible and reach goals that seemed unattainable.

Indoor and outdoor charging

Our days revolve around the sun, but we don’t always stop when it sets. Like us, LunaR can rely on both natural and artificial light. With a daily exposure of as little as 1 hour (>10k LUX), LunaR's solar panel can harvest enough power to deliver infinite battery life. You can easily check your watch’s current light-harvesting levels through the LunaR app.

  

  

A clear breakthrough in solar technology  

LunaR’s exclusive transparent solar panel was pioneered by Sunpartner, a leading solar technology company from France. Coined WYSIPS® (What You See Is Photovoltaic Surface), this innovative technology harvests energy from a variety of light sources while still delivering allowing clear visibility through the panel.

Recharge with your watch

Like LunaR, we also run on sunshine. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones and a healthy immune system. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of depression, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and the flu. LunaR lets you set your own daily sunshine exposure goals. Your LunaR app will keep you notified about your progression.

 

LunaR was thoughtfully designed to enhance travel, outdoor activity, and everyday experiences without ever causing the inconvenience of a low-battery or dying device.

 

When you travel, LunaR can show you 2 time zones: your local time (displayed through LED) and home time (displayed on hands).

Dual time zone

LunaR keeps you on time, wherever you are. With its built-in world clock function, LunaR easily reports the time for your current and home locations. This means you can display two time zones on one (analog) watch, keeping you seamlessly in sync with friends, family and colleagues.

Your local time is automatically updated according to GPS by the app. No GPS available? Just select the city of your choice and the correct time will be reflected on your watch.

 

 

 

Sunrise / sunset tracking

Maximize your daylight hours, monitor light-centric activities like hiking and surfing, outwit your jet lag and more. LunaR features integrated sunrise and sunset technology, providing accurate data for your current location through both LunaR embedded LEDs and on the dashboard page of the LunaR app.

 

  

 

App integration

 

 

LunaR's embedded LED array and vibration technology integrates with all of your apps, providing discreet, at-a-glance notifications so you don't have to upset the flow of your daily activities to stay connected, informed and on schedule.

Activity tracking

LunaR's accelerometer “feels” your movements, providing feedback and making it easy to reach movement objectives. Set a goal and check in on your daily progress through the app or LunaR’s patented LED dial technology. LunaR will give you a vibrating and visual LED notification when you beat your goal for the day.

LunaR fits right into your active lifestyle.

Sleep monitoring

 

Our research shows that healthy sleep is as important as physical exertion—that’s why LunaR gives you feedback on your waking activities AND your sleep. 

LunaR analyzes sleep health with a refined algorithm that tracks deep sleep, light sleep and time awake, evaluating data so you can easily understand and optimize your sleep habits. 

With bedtime integration, the LunaR app will alert you when it’s time for bed, automatically putting LunaR in sleep-tracking mode. At your designated wakeup time, you’ll be notified by a gentle vibration alarm.

Water resistance

With waterproofing up to 5ATM (50 meters), you don’t need to worry about LunaR getting splashed, soaked or dunked. You can even swim with it.

Risks and challenges

Our vision for LunaR has always been to produce a smartwatch with both classic styling and leading technology. There have been big challenges in bringing LunaR to life and for nearly three years our team has been working long hours to refine and optimize the design, technology, production and logistics for LunaR.

We know there will be minor tweaks in the final production and our materials. Our production timelines are aligned to take all of that into account and deliver the first 2500 LunaR solar-powered smartwatches for the 2017 Holiday Season.

We’ve worked diligently with our partners for many months to fine tune every aspect of LunaR and identify and eliminate any areas of weakness which may cause issues with performance, durability and user satisfaction. We’ve invested an enormous amount of time and our own finances on research, development, sourcing, prototyping and testing. We’re in the final stages of this and we need your help to get over the last hump and make LunaR a reality.

Even the best efforts sometimes hit a snag. We are committed to transparency on all aspects of our product, project and its delivery to you. So, if for some reason we run into an issue or have a delay, we will let all of our backers know immediately and solve the problem as fast as humanly possible.
