There are indeed many types of watches one can choose from. There are mechanical, automatic, quartz and solar-powered quartz watches, which have respectively different functions and features. In this article, we’ll be focusing on solar-powered watches and we’ll show you why you should get one. Before you continue reading, do follow me and subscribe to my newsletter!
They Run On Solar Power, Obviously
Solar-powered watches are able to charge themselves by capturing light energy from nearby light sources. This means that there is no need to replace batteries from time to time. In the grand scheme of things, this means less battery waste and overall is more environmentally friendly as compared to its battery-powered counterparts. The battery units of solar-powered watches often last for 5-10 years before needing a replacement.
They Are Relatively Affordable
Though there are some solar-powered watches that cost $700 or more, it is possible to get a decent one starting from as low as $100. Casio and Citizen are brands that offer reasonably priced, quality and durable solar-powered watches.
They Have Long Battery Reserves
A solar-powered watch will be able to last 6 or more months on a single full charge, depending on the model. This means that you don’t have to worry if you can’t wear it frequently, unlike automatic watches and mechanical watches which require regular winding.
They Are More Accurate Than Mechanical And Automatic Watches
Solar-powered watches utilise quartz movements and are known to be more reliable due to the fact that they will recharge constantly under the presence of light. They usually gain or lose 5 seconds a month while automatic or mechanical watches may gain or lose up to 30 seconds (this depends heavily on quality) in a day.
They Have Increased Durability And Better Water Resistance
It is true that other types of watches can also be made to withstand equal amounts of pressure. However, since solar-powered watches don’t need to be wound and are rarely opened (due to the fact that they don’t need to have their batteries replaced), they are less prone to deterioration and their rubber gaskets are less likely to wear out. They are perfect for people who like to travel outdoors in the great wilderness.
