A Cheap, Colourful Solar-Powered Watch That Requires No Maintenance

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Q&Q (a company founded almost 40 years ago as part of Citizen) has finally made its once Japan-only SolarSmile watches available internationally. So for just $40 (£24.04)—with free shipping—you can get a simple timepiece that never needs winding, charging, or a new battery.

A Cheap, Colorful Solar-Powered Watch That Requires No Maintenance

All that's required of you is to set the time, and decide which of the fifteen different colours and patterns you want strapped to your wrist. Made from partly recycled materials, the watches are all waterproof to an impressive depth of 50 metres. And after a full charge they'll keep running for about three and a half months without seeing the sun again. [Q&Q Online Store via CoolHunting]
