'LunaR' Offers The First Ever Solar-Powered Smartwatch

Smartwatches haven’t exactly set the world on fire in terms of popularity, and there’s many reasons for that. To begin with, some people find them redundant if they already carry a smartphone. Other people don't like their aesthetic. Unlike traditional watches, battery life can also be a struggle, leading people to feel frustrated with another item to charge. 

Of course, smartwatches can also be super handy, especially if you're trying to cut down on the time you spend staring at your smartphone screen. One startup has come up with a smartwatch that eliminates at least one major drawback: You can charge it with solar power. 

LunaR, a new product that’s being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, is hoping to fix the battery charge problem by using energy from the sun. Even better? Instead of needing to charge the smartwatch every day or two, it only needs to happen every few months.
