The Manufacturing Process Of Smartwatches

The Manufacturing Process Of Smartwatches

Batch production is a common practice in the watch industry. After a design and engineering phase of 1 to 2 months, over a components procurement phase of 3 months, we take care of the technical drawings, product refinement and the components production of the watches among our closed network of suppliers. Then we go into the assembly phase, which lasts 1 to 2 weeks.

Quality check is performed all along the value chain until the final QC. Complete watches are finally delivered. The Manufacturing Process Of Smartwatches involves various steps. At all stages, skilled and trained watchmakers will add more than mere screws, parts and cogs but years of craftsmanship experience where each gesture is precise and purposeful.

Although such smartwatches must be assembled carefully and methodically, the essential aspects of the manufacturing process are in the manufacture of the components. Any Smartwatch manufacturer will have to follow specific basic steps.

List of Steps Adopted by Any Manufacturer

1. Select the chip solution from the smart wearable device solutions provider;

2. Design motherboard circuit, write software, test function;

3. Design the appearance;

4. Prototype according to the appearance design;

5. Sample test OK, mass production;

6. Design packaging and manual and print;

7. Purchase required components, such as screen, strap, battery, PCB board, charger, etc;

8. Check the quality of components before production;

9. Arrange an assembly;

10. Quality check before delivery.

Manufacturing Process

Smart Technology Testing

While traditional watch design centres around a watch’s working mechanism, two rotating hands which tell time, the smartwatches use smart technology as the base of their design. They use a particular software which makes their design intelligent: able to track your steps, monitor your sleep and much more. This ensures the firmware is working precisely.

Smartwatch chips are a crucial part of your smartwatches. In fact, without them, you wouldn’t have a smartwatch. They perform an essential role in managing the data flow of your device.

The data between your smart wearable device’s processor, memory, and external devices. Your smartwatch’s performance is even dependent on this chip. As such, you must pay extra attention to the chip solution you get. Chips are delicate materials. Anything could contaminate them. So, you must do everything possible to ensure your chips are from the best provider.

This would help you streamline a few you can work on. After which you can get in touch with your choices to know their offers.

Dimension Measuring

The product must be dimensioned based on the proof design and the features it will provide. So, to catch the interest of your buyers, your smartwatches must have striking physical appearances.

The way users interact with your smartwatches also matters a great deal.

You wouldn’t want to continue using a smartwatch that gives you so much stress when you try to navigate it. This is why prototyping is so important in the appearance design of your smartwatches.

Case Construction and Assembly

In this step, the watches’ cases are constructed by placing together the battery, MOVT, dial, and hands. They use a specialized air pressure machine to remove any hide-away dust, and the case is sealed shut. This is another delicate point of smartwatch production; you want to ensure it’s done right and the assembly of the watch is done.

App Connectivity

Step four is when the smartwatches become truly connected devices. Each watch is tested to ensure it can connect for activity tracking, sleep monitoring and other smart functionalities.

After the connection is made, the watches are set to 12:00. They let the watches rest for 48 hours on each side to ensure gravity doesn’t interfere with each watch’s time setting.

Waterproof Test

For our watches to be wearable activity and vacation essentials, they must be waterproof. In this step, their swimming abilities are tested first by a pressure tester to ensure they can withstand underwater conditions and second by a particular air leakage machine. This is to ensure no water sneaks into the watch's case. After this stage, all our watches are pool party ready.

Quality Control

The watch cases are placed inside a vibration machine, similar to a mini-earthquake simulator. The vibration test ensures that the watch's inner workings will stay put during the active lifestyle of its future owner.

After that, a few unlucky watches must fight for their lives during a drop test. This product sample test would allow you to confirm the reliability of your devices.

A small percentage of the watches are dropped from 1 meter to test the product's robustness and ensure that the average watch can survive a little free falling. Life can be unpredictable, so our watches must be ready for any adventure we take them on.

Band Elasticity Test

After taking a nose dive in the name of quality control, bands are finally added to each watches' case via the lug ends. They're then tested on an elasticity machine. It stretches and pulls the bands, guaranteeing each band's elasticity and durability for long-term usage.


Finally, the watches are delicately t while the quality of each watch is carefully inspected. For the last step, the watches were placed into their packaging and shipped worldwide.

They aim to measure, manage and monitor vital parameters to prevent a fatal medical incident and help respond fast when needed. The avant-garde device helps monitor, track, and improve fitness objectives without forcing users to leave their comfort zone.

The heart of these smartwatches is a highly integrated, ultra-thin electronics PCB which is the size of a watch dial. This allows up to 100 electronic components with multiple sensors and wireless communications modules to be integrated into a highly compact space.

Smartwatches grew at a record 173% on-year in the first quarter of 2022, while the wireless earbuds category surged by 66% during the same period, according to Counterpoint Research. This was driven by low average selling prices, which analysts say are not pinching consumers' pockets like smartphones.

Smartwatch average selling price (ASP) fell from Rs 8,500 in 2020 to Rs 5,400 in 2021 and is expected to fall even further as players focus on economic models. The global smartwatch market is projected to grow from $22.02 billion in 2021 to $58.21 billion by 2028. This is with a CAGR of 14.9% in the forecast period, 2021-2028.
