Sequent Kinetic Self-Charging Smartwatch

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-10-15

Use clean energy to stay connected when you have the Sequent Kinetic Self-Charging Smartwatch. This wearable focuses on the main problem with our devices: dead batteries. By using your movement, the Sequent Smartwatch stays active just like you. In fact, it uses no coin cell batteries and never requires a wall socket. Incredibly, the more you move and workout, the faster the watch will charge. Talk about motivation! With this wearable, you can customize which notifications you want to receive and when. With a classic design, it automatically switches time zones. In addition to notifications, the Sequent Smartwatch uses the latest technology. This includes an activity tracker, heart rate sensor, and built-in GPS. The Sequent Smartwatch also comes with a companion app. In the app, you can view your metrics and even receive performance and health coaching.

Alright, sounds good, thanks a lot Artem!
Kyle Chester
Thanks a lot Artem! That's great to know.

@Kyle & Levon,
the quote from July 30th:
"All depends how much data you are recording. But as an average the watch will stock about 10-20 days of data before to need a sync."
Levon Scheijbeler
Dear Sequent Watch team, Very cool project and road that you are taking to create this incredible nice piece of equipment to show time and include smartwatch functionality. With the time frame and all these questions which also cost time to answer will the process been incredible difficult to maintain the dead-lines. In my eyes is there no hurry no worry mentality, just focus on the nice piece of art. I was searching with (Ctrl+f) to find if the questions was already asked by some one else but I could not find it so here by 2 questions: First is actually more or less the same as Kyle Chester, do you always need to carry your phone with you to transfer the data, running, surfing, supping, cycling, tennis, etc which are sports where I do not have the phone in reach and further away then the 10 meters of bluetooth range. second question is about the Biofeedback health & sport app, could there be a opportunity in the future (not now after delivery and release) let's say a time frame over a year or maybe 2 to make the Biofeedback health & sport app more specific for sports, running, surfing, supping, cycling, tennis, etc? Like more or less the competition is doing? Thank you already in advance for your responds, Greetings Levon
Kyle Chester
I've got a question I kept meaning. To ask... If my phone is out of Bluetooth range, or say I'm out on a hike, and my phone dies, will my activity still retroactively track to the phone, once. My phone charges up again? In a sense, is there any memory in the watch? Or does the phone always have to be charged, and within range to be 100% effective?
Hendi
I do not know about you guys, but, I am really excited and cannot wait to get the finished product - Thank you again for developing this brilliant watch
Zhi-Cheng Lee
Please ignore my last post. I found a way can change payment method ;-)
Zhi-Cheng Lee
My credit card was stolen, Bank give me a new card but card number is different. In my survey show add-ons strap will charge via my old card number... How do I change it?
Aitor Bleda
As for the strap options.. I dont like that I get no decent leather (as in 100% leather), this will force me to make my own tanine leather strap or buy a full Horween leather one.
I dont see this as a big problem as we all change the straps in our watches anyway.

@ Autarc
We have replied to your comment already. Yes, the indexes will be exactly the same as you can see them on the pictures. @ Zdravko Stoychev
@ Mushfiqul Alam
We have prepared many possibilities for you. But at a certain point we had to stop adding others in order to be able to manage them all.
We believe that the available options are the best ones, please choose from those. @ Crawford
We will update you on our activities soon.
Crawford
Looking forward to an update on all activities outlined in update #10.

From the app - tap on by Sequent line near the top - the resultant menu will have Full Bio, Websites, Collabortators - then Contact - tap Contact.

@Moose Man, Thanks man for the kind response. Probably you are right, I must prepare myself for more disappointments as a first time backer. Honestly its hard to beat your backing experiences. :-)
By any chance, do you know how to send a private message to the Sequent Team ? Sounds stupid, but I honestly couldn't find it. Also any suggestions for Thanks for the help, much appreciated.
Moose Man
@Mushfiqul Alam, They are closing the surveys Oct 8th and all of the people who have already selected their combinations would have to do it again if they started to open it up - and I seriously doubt that will happen because they need to get on with ordering appropriate quantities. Sorry you didn't get your color combination - neither did I but the campaign is about a Watch and not a "band". It's hardly a disappointment in that regard. Send Sequent a Private Message and perhaps they would refund you but they are not compelled to do so. And since this is your first Kickstarter campaign be prepared to be disappointed if you decide to back some more.
Mushfiqul Alam
I am really disappointed with the survey options as like many other backers.
I want to have several straps options for example, Hi-tech Cordura strap blue in colour. Unfortunately only black is available !
If the strap are easy fit and changeable, I believe it is natural for people to expect more different options. I really request the SEQUENT to introduce more stap options, especially Hi-tech Cordura strap blue.
Otherwise, the whole campaign will be disappointing. Thanks for your understanding.
Moose Man
I've stated this before but it's worth repeating: I don't like Backerkit options - it causes confusion and invariably a backer can't get the combination that he or she wants. I would have much-rathered Sequent bundle the watches and hardcoded the bands to the watch face because of these "disappointments". It's a quick change band and I would suspect that most people, like myself, will buy the band that we want anyway. I'm not keen on a universal fit of 15cm to 22cm - my Apple band fits up to 200MM which is plenty so I'm wondering how much bigger this will actually be? But whatever they supply - won't be on the watch long as I'm a metal band kind of guy and that was not an option.
Zdravko Stoychev
Yeah, messages sent and response is like sorry we only offer options avail in backerKit, so no change for you. Disappointing.
Moose Man
@Autrac, They said to send them a PM that; Guys, if you still have problems with survey or want to change anything, please send us Kickstarter message. It is much easier for us to track your requests in messages than here among other comments.
Thank you.
Autarc
@Sequent: Did you got a chance to checkout my comment from before (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1608034664/sequent-the-worlds-first-kinetic-self-charging-sma/comments…)? Would be good to know if the marks on the steel version with the white dial remain dark for improved readability or if it was just at the picture. Also opinions regarding a secondary wristband for outdoor activities would be helpful :-)
Artem
@Sequent,
thx for keeping intouch and great work!
Sequent (Switzerland) Ltd.
Hi everyone,
In case you still haven't found the survey, it's here:
https://sequent.backerkit.com/ @ Matej Markovič
@ Andre Fortin
@ others
Your requests for upgrade, change etc. have been taken care of. Most of them already solved to your satisfaction, some still in process but will be finished soon. Guys, if you still have problems with survey or want to change anything, please send us Kickstarter message. It is much easier for us to track your requests in messages than here among other comments.
Thank you. @ Moose Man, Artem, others...
Thank you for replying to the questions that have been answered many times, you are great! @ Artem
We cover wrists 15 - 22 cm. @ glynn
It's because we are collecting the survey information through BackerKit. And in case you would choose add-on or anything with extra cost, we will collect the payment through them as well. @ choiyunseok
Yes, the leather strap uses rubber base and is covered with leather.
All the images we have you can see on BackerKit, please use those. @ Kyle Chester
@ Shiva Siddharth
We are now testing B and C. We decided for this because of the amount of lume which influences weight and performance of the hands. @ Mahmoud Al Shami
This is too much detail right now, we don't know that yet, but we will inform you later. VAT
As already mentioned, VAT has to be paid. If there is a legal way how to increase it, we can go for it. But we are not aware of such solution right now.
Artem
1 week left till the survey's end, I hope all backers will answer it and will not cause the delay of the production start.
Moose Man
@Shiva Siddharth, I’ve never been a fan of campaigns that hide their updates for backers only such as Tic has done on their latest campaign. I agree that they just covered the VAT in the price as nearly every other campaign I’ve seen has some VAT into Europe. Of course, being across the pond it doesn’t matter to me but I should think if one is going to call out a campaign with some sort of VAT relief, then one should reference the other project so Sequent could reach out to that other campaign.
Shiva Siddharth
@Moose Man, i think he is talking abt Ticwatch... @Simon, I would never trust those guys. There is no transparency in what they do. They already have a UK distributor as they are already selling in UK through Amazon. When you bring something in into EU, VAT has to be paid. When you buy from the distributor, they would have already paid the VAT and that will be added on to the product cost. So you will be paying VAT indirectly. Untill the end of campaign they were saying that the EU guys need not pay anything and that they had found a fix by shipping through oneplus ...blah blah blah.., but now this. I guess they are bringing the watches in through Malta or Luxembourg which has the lowest VAT rates and indirectly charging people..
Moose Man
@Simon Schonbrunner, You don’t seem to be backing another project so can you share what project you are referencing?
Simon Schönbrunner
Hallo Sequent-Team,
I heard from an other smartwatch Kickstarter-project, whitch found a way to reduce the VAT. They wrote "... Over the past month, our logistic team has been busy searching for shipping alternatives for you guys, and with their help, many of you will no longer have to pay VAT and other taxes... Backers from European Union countries: You will no longer need to pay VAT, but a small clearance fee of $17 per person needs to be made before we ship out your rewards. We will send out another email to backers who are eligible for this deal..." Do you think, this solution would be possible for us too?
Mahmoud Al Shami
@creator
What kind of shipment it will be ? Will be any tracking number so we can follow it and not get lost ..
Alberto Ribao
I backed the partner tier but would like to get two steel watches. Is it possible?
Moose Man
@alvinyee, Go here: https://sequent.backerkit.com/
Sequent posted that link shortly after the last update in the comments. And please read more than just one or two comments - this link has been posted multiple times in the comments section.
alvinyee
Hey, I don't see any email on the survey.
Lionello Sacchi
Nice job Sequent, I'm looking forward to receive mi watch!
Moose Man
This is pretty clear to quote Sequent; But you can see the lume hands on the image from Update #5 - the C image is what we are aiming for.
Shiva Siddharth
@Kyle Chester, A or B would make the hands heavier due to the thickness of the coating. I would not be surprised if they went with C. It makes more sense..
Matej Markovič
UPDATE: With a minor problems at start, I have been able to successfully upgrade my Steel ediiton pledge to rose gold. Very happy!
Zhi-Cheng Lee
@Artem LoL, I do same thing....
Kyle Chester
@Sequent Out of curiosity, you guys. Had mentioned that the lume hands would be between A and B, as they were the two most popular votes. Am I correct to assume that you are going with image C now?
Sriram Reddy
For survey
Sriram Reddy
I did not receive any message from sequent !!!
Artem
@Stanislav,
cuz they think that it looks not good, idk why (
Paint edit: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yaca8eraqvf0bxr/Orange_leather.png…
Stanislav Vladimirov
Why can't I choose black edition with orange dial and brown leather?
Sequent (Switzerland) Ltd.
Hi guys, please choose the watch according the images that you can find in BackerKit. Currently we don't have any other images.
Regarding the lume hands, we added them during the campaign and those are still being manufactured. We are still waiting for the first samples to arrive. Then we will test them to see how they perform. This is necessary because of the added weight.
But you can see the lume hands on the image from Update #5 - the C image is what we are aiming for. Other than that, the watch is going to look exactly the same as on images, including the markers.
Kris
Most issues have been resolved (or weren't issues to begin with) but I'm wondering about what Juan posted 5 days ago
"Is there a way we can look at least some renders of how the watches are going to look including the luminous hands and how the Black/Orange looks with the black detais instead of the silver ones?"
I'd really like to know as well because the way it is we don't know what we are choosing because the colors don't match the picture. I can't decide if orange is the way to go for me when the details are actually from the steel version and I can't decide to get the full black one when I don't know how the luminous hands now look.
I'd like to meet the deadline of the survey but I'd also like to have an idea of what I'm choosing.
Filippo Rossano
@Matej, I was able to upgrade from black edition to rose gold in the backerkit for 149 CHF.
Moose Man
@Peet Leet, Go here: https://sequent.backerkit.com/ Sequent posted that link shortly after the last update in the comments.
Matej Markovič
@Andre Fortin They wrote to me, that: "Unfortunately, the Sequent team is not currently allowing pledge level changes — really sorry for any inconvenience" Disapointed.
Peet Leet
I did not receive the bakerkit survey ... is there something wrong?
did any of you receive it?
Moose Man
@Gabi Sanaa, If you would actually read the Skagen description, you would see that not only is it a coin type battery it only provides simple notifications. It does not have any gps or accelerometer or pulse monitor capabilities. I have one and compared to my Apple Watch, the Skagen is not very smart.
Alexander Kazachkov
@Gabi Sadaa
Actually the Skagen watch is similar to a Withings watch: they both use coin cells. You need to replace them in order to use them year for year.
