Mechanical watch reviewer remarks—the alarm function of Apple Watch feels like ‘winding a mechanical watch’
by winding the crown of a hand winding watch, a spiral spring inside the watch gets compressed which then powers watch and makes the hands turn
if people have been charging mechanical watches with their hands for centuries, why not an Apple Watch
all it needs is a micro version of a 133 year old invention
the electricity generator, which converts physical motion of a wheel into electric current
a simple case of rearrange your legos
Apple, why don’t you put a small generator in the Apple Watch and be done with it?
People will love it
and to make the motion enjoyable, you can put a beautiful turbine inside the watch just like 1 of the high end ones GE makes
this will also make for some amazing marketing play (not just the turbines, the fact you can hand wind them)
I know the force required to charge the AppleWatch will be at least 5 times more than a mechanical watch
It will be well worth the effort
Apple, also please put a crown on the AirPods case
So people can finally get rid of their phones and move to the AppleWatch and a pair of air pods for good
let’s make things more enjoyable!
