Sequent is a 100% independent Swiss company founded in 2015. Its initial goal was to create the very first completely autonomous smartwatch, free of the usual constraint of needing to be charged every 24 or 48 hours (which is true for most). A connected watch that offers the freedom of a self-winding mechanical watch, with all the biometric functions of a smartwatch.
After two years in development, Sequent had created a genuinely self-charging smartwatch, able to harness the movements of the wrist thanks to the centuries-old technology of the oscillating weight. In 2017 the SuperCharger1 was born, complete with its own mobile app. It is equipped with the first automatic winding smartwatch movement.
This development was made possible with the commitment of private investors, but also, and above all, the support of the 4000 members of the public who, over the course of just a few weeks, signed up for the Kickstarter campaign. A total of 1.2 million francs was raised – far beyond expectations. This was more than just a validation of a technological and financial model: it was a resounding vote of confidence.
Two years on, in 2019, Sequent now has its own subsidiary in Taiwan, where the hardware and software for the SuperCharger collection are created. The company is currently working on completing the SuperCharger2, based on the same self-charging principle.
