This article’s heading carries a double meaning. Curious readers can explore this further when they go here for more information on how solar powered technologies are benefiting communities and individuals. The double meaning exploration will have revealed that the use of solar power is now being used to ensure that smart technology devices critical in the monitoring of health and fitness levels remain optimally charged.
There is no need to wait for a power outage or electrical power failure to sort itself out when the readily available solar power is always standing by. The solar power is already known for being able to charge devices’ batteries. It is also well known that some smart devices have a tendency to drain more battery power than other devices. Smart watches, as health and fitness monitoring devices are known to be a big power drain at this stage.
But smart developers and technicians have now gone beyond even the reliable use of solar energy. They are now utilizing human energy. How ironic is that? There is a smartwatch doing the rounds that is powered entirely through thermoelectric energy. This means that the collecting of necessary power is done simply through a change in the body’s temperature. The more physically active the human body is the more body heat is generated as a result.
And the longer the charge in the smartwatch will last. When the watch is taken off it immediately goes into sleep mode. This is also a form of saving power. The watch recharges once it is wrapped around the wrist of the human arm again. Technologies that save power or generate more power have even been extended to the clothes people wear.
