After raising $1.6M in 31-days, MATRIX is extending its pre-order campaign for another 15-days, and adding PowerWatch 2 LUXE to its new lineup of smartwatches that never need to charge.
PowerWatch 2 LUXE. Hand-powered. Hand-crafted.
Menlo Park, CA – With more than 7500 pre-orders already placed and $1.6M raised in one month, MATRIX Industries – the materials science pioneers radically changing the way we capture, harvest and use previously wasted energy – is announcing the extension of their PowerWatch 2 pre-order campaign for an additional 15-days. MATRIX already introduced their latest generation of PowerWatch, PowerWatch 2, and a Premium Edition upgrade. Now, as MATRIX extends the pre-order campaign, it is also sharing for the first time ever, the PowerWatch 2 LUXE Edition. PowerWatch 2 LUXE is available for pre-order today, starting at $279 for a limited run of 1000 Series 1 units ($699 MSRP).
PowerWatch 2 LUXE Edition features a quick-release, 22mm shark mesh stainless steel strap, a sapphire glass casing, and comes in either Black or Titanium finishes. Backers who pre-order PW2 LUXE will be treated to a rich, limited edition packaging, hand-crafted using premium materials. The LUXE also ships with a spring bar tool for band changes, and a plated warranty card.
March to the Beat of Your Own Heart.
PowerWatch 2 is designed with improved thermoelectric generators and all-new solar-cell technology, constantly generating more than enough energy to operate the built-in intelligent heart rate monitor, wherever, whenever.

With more energy than ever before, PowerWatch 2 introduces the first full-color LCD display powered by thermoelectric and solar energy, adding color to the power of you.
Location. Location. Location.
Always-on onboard GPS makes PowerWatch 2 the ultimate tool for anyone mapping out their run, hike or ride, and allows users to leave their phones at home.
With the introduction of HR and GPS functionality, PowerWatch 2 – and its iOS/Android companion apps – can now provide users with even more useful health and fitness metrics, including the most accurate calorie count industry-wide, pace, distance, steps, sleep, cadence, and more. PowerWatch 2 will also integrate third-party fitness platforms like Apple HealthKit and Google Fit, and is water resistant up to 200m.
While PowerWatch 2 dramatically increases the amount of energy available to the charge-free wearable, MATRIX’s materials science and hardware engineers were able to also further miniaturize both the thermoelectric (TEG) and solar cell processes, decreasing PowerWatch 2’s weight and size even more, while maintaining the rugged aluminum build that consumers fell in love with.
