Chinese company Shanda hopes its Geak Watch 2 will win over consumers with at least one week of battery time up to 18 days on a single charge. The smartwatch can switch from a "high definition" color LCD to a "standby" E-Ink display to help conserve energy, which is a rather nice twist on most current battery-busting smartwatches.
The Geak Watch 2 can last up to six days on a single charge and costs $327, while the Geak Watch 2 Pro is $409 and can last up to 18 days in standby mode.
Here is what Ben Wood, CCS Insight spokesperson said: "One of the big challenges that smartwatch manufacturers have had is that people stop using the devices, and one of the reasons they do so is that they have to be charged on a regular basis, whereby they are being taken off constantly. Anything that enhances the battery life is a big win. That's why we've seen people who have Pebble devices typically using them longer than some of the rivals with daily charging requirements."
