"Great news. We have figured out how to incorporate wireless charging into the V7."
Bjørn, Founder, YES Watch
Our HK team has steadfastly pushed to convert the V7 power system into a wireless induction charging set-up. A few weeks ago, my programmer texted me to say that they had finally figured it out. We have custom built a tiny 6mm induction coil and sealed it off from the world behind a waterproof crystal window in the back plate. It allows for unobstructed recharging without compromising the three months power capacity. No more wires, no more external contacts, moisture is no longer a consideration. The coil and external charging pad adheres to the Qi standard. We've also been able to do it without increasing the titanium case thickness, the size stays the same.
Tooling the coil from scratch, retooling the back plate and the rear of the module for induction charging, plus purchasing the minimum ordering quantities of the coils and charging pads needed doesn't come cheap. Instead of raising watch prices, we are opting to reach out and sell more of them. To this end, I am again asking for your help.
"We have to sell dozens more of the V7 to make it all come together. In the long run, I am confident the addition of wireless charging will be worth the effort."
All of the V7 uses the same identical case, module and programming, just different finishes, colors, bezels, bracelet, soft strap and LCD colors.
The satin finish cases have always been the most popular. The following three Indiegogo rewards have been fitted with with the satin blue hand.

Once you have picked yours we will contact you to confirm your choice of bezel and soft strap. You can put together any combination you want.
