There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time. A kinetic watch harnesses the energy generated by the common, natural motions of a wearer's arm and wrist to power the movement — the engine — inside the watch. Through gestures, swinging an arm while walking, opening doors, and even turning a steering wheel, the motion is enough to cause a weight to oscillate by the forces of gravity and momentum. This causes the spinning of frictionless rotors, which generate electricity that is stored inside a capacitor. The capacitor then discharges the energy slowly over time to power the watch.
