Ventura Sparc MGS Mechanical/Digital Watch Needs No Battery

Ventura Sparc MGS Mechanical/Digital Watch Needs No Battery
I have seen a bunch of watches over the years that are mechanical action units where you don’t need to wind them and they don’t need batteries. These watches are the sort where the motion of your arms as you move around keeps the watch wound up.

The Elusive Watch Lets You Read the Time off Your Wrist, Literally

HP might have had to have a fire sale to dump their now-discontinued WebOS TouchPad tablets, but Marvel Digital’s Mercury Pad Tablet is running Android, so you’ll be safe with it.
