Watchmaker Q&Q, a division of the Citizen Watch Company, has launched its SolarSmile watch to the global market. The SolarSmile watches are solar-charged by energy from the sun, and can in theory work perpetually as they never need to be wound, charged or have batteries replaced. These Q&Q watches are equipped with the same technology that is used in Citizen's high-end Eco-Drive watches to let them function perpetually.

Made from partly recycled materials, Q&Q's SolarSmile watches are waterproof to a depth of 164 feet. On a full charge of solar energy, these watches can run for three and a half months without seeing the sun. All you have to do is set the time on the watch and forget about it.

The Q&Q SolarSmile watches can be purchased online for just $40 with free shipping. Customers can choose from 15 different colors and patterns. Stats for Cheap Solar-Powered Watches Trending: Older & Buzzing
