KHARA BAND for HARP GAHUNIA came to MAKO with a complex challenge. Create a flexible watch band, full of lithium-ion batteries, that connects to existing smartwatches, in order to triple the watch’s battery life. In under a year, the talented industrial designers, mechanical designers, and electronics engineers at Mako made it happen. Harp has raised over $100M in financing in his career, so we are excited to see how he will take Khara Band to the next level.
The patent-pending design is made from high-performance fluorocarbon.
