The Q&Q SmileSolar watch is an environmentally and socially responsible design. Made of recycled plastic and fabric and powered by solar energy, the wristwatch puts sustainability at the forefront. Just one hour of sunlight generates enough power for more than three months of use. So, the wearer could pretty much be a vampire and still not worry about running out of battery.

In addition to conserving earth’s resources, the watch is affordably priced at $40, and each purchase helps give back to the greater community. A portion of Q&Q’s sales go to Table for Two, an international nonprofit fighting malnutrition.

SmileSolar comes in a variety of colors and patterns. The youthful design features a round face with raised markers and a flexible synthetic strap. There’s a style for every color palette and casual occasion.
