    Frogman charging

    I just replaced my Dawn Black Frogman. I sold it and missed it every day it was gone. When I recieved my new one today, it indicated by the blank screen it needed a charge. It is outside on a slightly overcast day with some sun breaking through. However, the screen is still blank. Is that normal that it is taking it this long to come back to life?

    The watch will take some time to charge back up if the cell is fully drained. Just leave the watch exposed to natural light and it should recover, how long depends on the lighting conditions and exposure.

    I would resist the temptation to use high intensity lights etc, they only generate more heat and the solar panel works best in natural light not artificial.

    All`s good; the watch may take up to a week or more to attain full charge, and the power levels are not linear, 5-4 is relatively a short period 2-1 is very lengthy taking several days.

    I just took my unworn Dawn Black out for a checkup. It was not as dead as yours as it didn't have a display but when it woke up was blinking at me that it needed charging. After a full day in the window it was up to 2 on the battery, I left it there 1-2 more days to get it to full then put it back in storage. Your might take a little longer even as it wasn't displaying anything.
