IO?ION! watches are treated with Tourmaline, a semi-precious stone well-known for its natural electric charge and ionic properties that contribute to both health and the environment. Tourmaline is also believed to be one source of the “chi energy” in Chinese Traditional Medicine and has been proved to be the highest-energy crystal in the world.



Tourmaline is activated by (body) heat, pressure or water, and releases negative ions every time you wear your watch to offset the heavy doses of positive ions (free radicals, air pollution) in our every day environment.

More and more health experts, researchers and doctors are acknowledging the astounding health-promoting benefits of negative ions:

  • Revitalization of cell metabolism
  • Strengthening of the immune system
  • Stabilization of blood pressure
  • Improvement in blood circulation (dilation of vessels)
  • Strengthening of the bones
  • Purification of the blood (increase in alkalinity)
  • Facilitation of breathing
  • Reduction in pulse rate
  • Enhancement of heart function
