Tips for Solar Charging

To maximize the battery life of your watch, follow these tips.

  • When you are wearing the watch, avoid covering the face with your sleeve.
  • When you are not wearing the watch, point the face toward a source of bright light, such as sunlight or fluorescent light.

    The watch will charge faster when exposed to sunlight, because the solar charging lens is optimized for the spectrum of sunlight.

  • For maximum battery performance, charge the watch in bright sunlight.
    NOTE: The watch protects itself from overheating and stops charging automatically if the internal temperature exceeds the solar charging temperature threshold ( Specifications).
    NOTE: The watch does not solar charge when connected to an external power source or when the battery is full.
