Time to unplug. The Eco-Drive Proximity Pryzm is a revolutionary smartwatch that requires zero wires or plugs for charging. Powered by light, the watch syncs to iOS and Android devices using Bluetooth connectivity. The smartwatch features visual and vibration alerts for texts, calls, alarms, social media and more. Sync time and date seamlessly. Special functions include the ability to search for your phone and call filtering.
