So, when the Apple Watch came out, I thought there were two technologies missing from the product. I have not purchased one yet, but I have been thinking about it. However, the notion of charging the watch seemed silly to me. I wondered if the internal speaker could be adapted to act as a charging mechanism when not in use as a sounding device. Sort of like a mechanical watch, the movement of your hand/body would cause the internal speaker to oscillate, even a little bit, generating current which could be captured by the battery in small increments, like a trickle charger.
The other thought was, why not solar? The outer ring of the screen could be fitted with a "case" that's really a thin film solar material which fees current back to the battery.
Am I crazy? Any value to these ideas?
Also, anyone who owns an Apple Watch, do you still wear a regular watch or do they all sit on a shelf?
