You would have to have a solar panel on your head because even if a solar panel took up the face of the watch it would be inadequate.

Yes as @Pugs1957 said. You'd need a big solar panel to get any meaningful charge from it.
I have a normal watch that's powered by solar. But it uses the whole watch face to charge the battery.
Smartwatches have a screen on the display, so couldn't have a photovoltaic panel there.

No just add kinetic energy on movement of the body like rotary mechanical skeleton watches, its so simple

But takes up room inside the watch.
Unfortunately it would add extra size.
I had a watch with a movement like this inside. It's a great idea though

It's not a smartwatch though. A fitness tracker will have less features and it doesn't have an Amoled display

How would it take up room in the phone device when the watch would be equipped with a magnetic rotary weight on the underside that would create energy on movement of the participants, I have many mechanical watches already the only issue would be waterproofing a moving mechanism, but surely samsung pay experts to design to most efficient smart watch avaliable right?
