Shockwatch 2, How to Work?
In our previous article, we discuss how impact indicators of different brands work in markets. The Shockwatch 2 is a structural change. Please refer to the following dismantling video.
The Spotsee Shockwatch 2 is made of plastic and stickers. There is a red plastic block with a certain weight in the middle of the product and it is stuck by an on-off switch, and it is matched with two plastic springs. When the switch is removed and if impacted, the red plastic block with a certain weight is moved.
