    Digital & ABC watches
    NOTE: Battery bars is a rough estimate of battery life. Each bar must cover a range of battery life remaining. It could be that 5 bars represent 90-100%, and 2 bars 20-45%; who knows. Background I had read about some people finding battery life of Garmin Instinct to be not near the official...

  3. Two Suunto Ambit down in 8 months...

    Suunto
    Hi all, I hope I am the only one in this situation, but if you have had similar issues, let me know. I have bought my first Ambit the very first day it was available in Canada, and I was extatic about all the features it had; awesome look (and I mean A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!), HR for my runs, GPS, an...
  4. Which SOLAR watch charges the fastest and lasts the longest?

    Public Forum
    Citizen, Seiko, Casio... have solar watches. I really like to have this kind to complement automatics, because it's the kind of quartz that requires less maintenance and it is easier to charge (compared with kinetic / auto-quartzs). If they are radio controlled, you don't even have to worry...

    Casio G-Shock
    Hi, I've got a casio GW-M5600 for about a year now. No problems & perfection, up untill recently. What happened is that suddenly the battery indicator went to low. The "LOW" words keep flashing in the date-section of the display. After a night under a lamp, the L/M/H indicator goes to M but...

  8. Timex Ironman battery dies quickly - Know why?

    Affordable watches
    I've replaced the battery twice in this Ironman Triathalon and within 3 weeks it's dead. o| I'm going to replace one more time and then call it quits. When I opened the watch the first time, there was a circular metal thing that was in the back plate that cracked and fell off. I salvaged the...
  9. Should Omega go for Solar or Radio Controlled?

    High Accuracy Quartz watches
    The one thing I don't like about regular quartz watches is the annual or biannual required battery change. Unless you go to an authorized service center, the gaskets won't get replaced and resealed properly, and your water resistance goes out the window. Why shouldn't Omega look at something...
  10. Has the battery life of the DW-5600E changed over the years?

    Casio G-Shock
    I am thinking about getting the basic DW-5600E, but I noticed the battery is only rated for 2 years on this model. I've seen tons of anecdotal evidence, however, that points to the battery life for some of the older models (5600C, et al.) being more like 10 years, the same as the new Gulfman...
