Apple May Introduce Motion Charging with the Rumored iWatch

Posted by: Maxine Brimmer (2 years, 8 months ago)

Speculation abounds over Apple’s long-rumored iWatch development thanks to a report about the company’s experiments with solar and wireless charging.

According to a report from the New York Times, Apple may be experimenting with several new potential charging methods for the iWatch. One method that the tech giant has allegedly tested is based around a wearer’s movements, which could be used to power the wearable device. This rumor is fuelled by Apple’s 2009 patent application for a technology which would allow user’s arm movements to “operate a tiny charging station that generates and pushes power to the device whilst walking.”

Other alternatives to the traditional charging methods could include a solar energy- based method, as well as a wireless charger involving magnetic induction or a charging plan to juice up a flat battery. Considering the speculations surrounding the iWatch, it seems that a non-traditional charging method would definitely be a requirement to keep the device from running out of battery life too quickly to be marketable.
