I clearly remember back in the days when I was still a kid, there were ordinary watches that ran on batteries, while the really rich kids in my school actually wore timepieces that did not need any sort of winding mechanism or batteries to keep it going – those watches used kinetic energy instead to tell the time indefinitely. Well, Cadence transports me back to that era with their Ecomatic watches that are battery free and wind themselves using the wonders of kinetic energy. I would recommend this for those who love drumming their fingers on the table as a habit, or basically for folks who live fidgeting around – all that movement would definitely result in plenty of kinetic energy for the Ecomatic Sport Watch to live on.

The watch itself sports power reserves of 36 hours, but if you happen to end up in Club Med for a few days, then you can always wind the timepiece manually when you get back home from unwinding (pardon the pun). It is water resistant to 10ATM (100 meters), making it convenient for everyday wearing, and with a 2 year warranty, you need not worry for the first 730 days at least.

Out in October, the Cadence Ecomatic Sport Watch will go for $225 a pop, but if you decide to place a pre-order, it will come with a 40% discount, now how about that? [Press Release]
