Is thirty-day battery life realistic for a smartwatch? Vector Watch thinks so


Most attention for smartwatches has been split between Google’s Android Wear, Apple’s Watch, and Pebble’s Time. At this year’s Baselworld, an annual event held in Switzerland to showcase watches and jewelry, Vector Watch arrived with luxury design and bold claims. When released this summer, it could be sitting alongside the biggest names in the smartwatch business.

The Vector Watch aims to provide users with thirty days of battery life. Yes, you read that correctly. The developers of this device are saying that the Vector Watch will operate for an entire month even when put through “high intense usage” before requiring an outlet to recharge. Interestingly, there are various third party apps and services being integrated that causes us to question the long battery life. Having IFTT, stocks, weather, and sports running constantly is sure to knock down the battery life by a few days or weeks.

Two varieties of the Vector Watch, defined by shape, will be available to consumers. The Meridian, which will cost $199 with a black nylon strap, has a rectangular design. More expensive at $349 is the Luna with the option for a brown leather strap. Then, from there, the pricing climbs as stainless steel straps are selected to finish the premium look.

Compatibility for the Vector Watch will be open to Android, Windows, and iOS devices. No information has been shared regarding the platform used to operate everything. Pre-ordering has opened already with a full release scheduled for the summer.
