1. A computer-implemented method comprising:

  • receiving, by a transmitter, an advertisement signal from a wearable device, the advertisement signal containing;

    (i) binary data indicating a direction of the wearable device relative to the transmitter, and (ii) one or more identifiers associated with the wearable device;

    authenticating, by the transmitter, the wearable device based on the one or more identifiers contained in the advertisement signal;

    in response to authenticating the wearable device;

    establishing, by the transmitter, a communication channel with the wearable device, wherein the communication channel hosts control signals containing data associated with power transmission waves;

    transmitting, by antennas of the transmitter, one or more power transmission waves in the direction of the wearable device based on the advertisement signal;

    receiving, by the transmitter, from the wearable device at least one control signal associated with the one or more power transmission waves, wherein the at least one control signal indicates an adjustment for transmitting the one or more power transmission waves by the antennas of the transmitter;

    transmitting, by the antennas of the transmitter, the one or more power transmission waves based on the adjustment indicated by the at least one control signal; and

    ceasing, by the transmitter, the communication channel with the wearable device, wherein the transmitter continues to transmit the one or more power transmission waves to the wearable device.
