Smartwatch manufacturer nevo has announced the nevo solar, the world's first solar powered analog smartwatch for the consumer market. Even with frequent use, nevo partnered with Sunpartner Technologies, utilizing the Wysips solution to help generate electricity through exposure to light.




The nevo solar will be released in August 2015, but no pricing details were made available.


"When we developed nevo we made battery life a top priority," said Sebastien Druven, co-founder and CEO of nevo. "Our standard dual battery system and low-consumption technology freed users from the inconvenience of nightly charging and now we're taking that concept to its ultimate conclusion - solar power. With nevo solar we capture the unlimited power of light. Our users will never have to worry about charging."


There are a number of different solar powered regular watches available on the consumer market - and could have great potential in the smartwatch market.
