A. BEFORE USING

This watch is not powered by a conventional battery, but is powered by converting light to electrical energy.

Before using, be sure to fully charge your watch by exposing it to light. (See “F. TIME REQUIRED FOR CHARGING”, for charge time reference)

Once fully charged, the watch will continue to run for approximately 6 months without additional charging. We do recommend exposing your watch to light every day to ensure optimum performance. Always be sure to recharge the watch before it stops.

Your watch features an Overcharge Prevention Function so there is no need to worry about overcharging your watch.

A special energy storage cell is used to store electrical energy. This special cell does not require replacement and is a clean energy unit that does not use any toxic substances.
