I'm hoping someone can offer me some advice here as I'm a bit lost. I received a basic analog eco drive watch as a present a few days ago which I believe was fully discharged when I got it out the box. I have been charging it according to the manual - leaving it outside in the full sun for around 7 hours a day and keeping it under a lamp during the night.
I've done this for 3 days now, but the moment I take the watch out full light conditions it stops. I was thinking this was the power saving feature, except that when I then put the watch back into light and it starts ticking again it's lost time and it does not catch it up - it does the erratic tick every 30 seconds which I believe is the time reset advisory.
I have done an all reset on the watch a few times - pull the crown out for 30 seconds and put back in - but no difference.
This is my first solar powered watch so I have no idea what I'm doing! Can anyone offer any suggestions? Is it simply that the watch is still not fully charged after 3 days and these watches don't work properly until they are fully charged?
Thanks all :)
