1 Hour of Sunlight Gives This Solar-Powered Watch 3 Months of Battery Life

Q&Q SmileSolar watches allow you to harness the power of the sun on your wrist while looking good at the same time. These bright and fashionable accessories are solar-powered and now available to the worldwide market with a price tag that won't make you cringe. For only $40, you can own one of these eco-friendly watches and feel good knowing that a portion of the proceeds are donated to Table for Two, an organization that delivers school meals to children in Africa and Asia.

Technically, the watch transform the sun's rays into energy using a razor-thin solar panel hidden around the inside rim of the casing. An hour of sunlight gives the SmileSolar about three months of battery life, so it's easy to keep it properly charged. They come in a variety of color and pattern combinations that are sure to accent any outfit. Katy Perry seemed to think so – a SmileSolar watch was recently featured in her music video, Birthday.
