This is the same as Citizen Eco Drive, powered by any light source.

Still has a battery in it only a rechargeable one so that will need replacing eventually, probably after about 5 to 7 years if its anything like the ones in game cartridges or PC motherboards :|

So if it's only going to last 5 to 7 years why not just fit it with a 10 year battery like some Casio's and do away with the solar technology. Lots of the Citizen Eco drives are still going strong 10 years on.

gimmick isn't it, I know they have rechargeable batteries in em and the kenetic ones contain a capacitor that has to be replaced eventually. I want a new watch and was looking into it, I've decided to get a old fashioned wind up or just stick with a battery one, the others all just seem pointless

Seiko hasn't used capacitors in their Kinetic watches for many years, since 2000 they've used lithium ion rechargeable batteries..... same as Eco Drive.
I would fully expect a solar powered watch to last at least 10 years and probably a lot longer if its treated right...... I have heard of some failing after 7 or 8 yrs, but you don't know for certain how these watch were treated.
But on the flip side, I have a G Shock that's 12 years old and still on its original battery, just a standard battery, not rechargeable.

good for you, I think my casio lasted at least 5 years but I've just been looking about because I don't really want any battery anymore and I just think its gimmicky especially with names like eco drive when its still not good for the environment
