Battery life is critical for wearable devices, as most are worn day in and day out, some even while you sleep! In order for a wearable device to be effective and gain acceptance in the wearable market, it must boast an efficient, long-lasting battery.
There are many solutions to consider to extend the life of your battery, such as energy harvested from body heat or motion or from the environment. Consider a wireless charging solution for your device, use ultra-low power components, or infuse battery and/or power management solutions.
The option you choose to employ in your wearable device design will set the bar for success in the market, so be sure to do your research on which is best for your device’s specific function.
