Medirom announced a partnership with MATRIX Industries enabling users in the US and Japan to monitor their health activities 24/7 by delivering the world’s first health monitoring smartband – MOTHER – that never requires charging.
As research shows, the number one reason consumers stop using wearables is because they take them off to charge and forget that they exist. By partnering with MATRIX, Medirom hopes to develop a smart-tracker that never requires charging and can provide accessible options for consumers.
MATRIX has developed PowerWatch – the world’s first smartwatch that never requires charging – by applying innovative technology like its Gemini TEG (Thermoelectric Generator) and Mercury Boost Converter that enables body heat to generate electricity. With PowerWatch, it is possible to measure calorie consumption, activity and sleep, without ever needing to stop and charge.
MOTHER is a smart tracker that never requires charging and can provide accessible options for consumers. With MOTHER, Medirom and MATRIX are particular about the unisex design that can be worn stylishly regardless of gender and distinguish from other trackers on the market.
With MOTHER, they will open up the SDK (Software Development Kit) for apps to help any healthcare service provider to build and expand their own service easily.
