    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.

    "Next year we will come to the market with a revolutionary battery, not only for watches but also for automobiles," Hayek said.

    Given that current smartwatches only last for a day or two on a single charge, a smartwatch that lasts six months would be well appreciated in the market.
