The firm's CEO Nick Hayek, speaking to Swiss newspaper Handelszeitung, says his company will release a "revolutionary battery" next year, "not only for watches, but also for automobiles." Later Reuters confirmed Hayek's statements with a Swatch spokesperson.

"Whoever brings a battery for a smartwatch to the market that you don't need to charge for six months has a competitive advantage," he explained.
