Solar-Powered Watches by Tocs: Never Wind Again

We found these cool solar-powered watches in a recent issue of Real Simple, listed under "Real Steals," and really like the funky style and durability. The Ani-Digi Solar Alarm Chrono watch from Tocs features a mini solar panel, just as the Citizen Eco-Drive, however it's much more affordable at just $45. It can be powered by the sun or by indoor lighting, but also features a lifetime back-up battery system just in case. Spend time in the water? Don't let the solar panel deter you — this watch is water resistant up to 98 feet. We dig the many other features that this Tocs watch has, which again makes it well worth the money. Time is displayed using both analog and digital and it comes in six different colors (the bold ones like Cosmo Orange make a statement) and two different styles. It has a reminder alarm, a dual time zone feature and also a handy digital stop watch. Via Real Simple Tocs
