    My GSHOCKS went kaput

    I had 3, two digital solar atomic and one digi analog solar atomic. The two digital stopped charging and I gave away the last one to a friend hoping he'd have better luck. His hasn't died yet. None of the watches were that old, one of the dead ones was less than two years old. Just wondering how long they they are supposed to last. I had two of the model at the bottom. both died.

    I could list my watches here, but I won't.

    When you say kaput, do you mean the watch is dead, or the battery is dead (ie did you replace the cell?).

    Both digitals are completely dead. Did not know you could replace a cell on the solar models. Anyhow it should last longer than a couple years i'd think.

    If you'd have left them in a window sill in the sunlight for a couple of days they might well have come back to life.

    Actually, one of them has been sitting in a window sill for months now. Still dead, I just tried to wake it up.

    Did they die with any kind of charge in them at all? Might be a stupid question, but did they get much sunlight? Or just live on ambient indoor lighting?

    man, it ain't the Gs' fault as they can't walk itself to the nearby light source, or at least turn their faces to the light direction like a tree


    you haven't read the manual, have you ?

    I always stored them near a window. Shades are always open. In the summer they were outdoors for hours at a time and I'm a t shirt guy in summer.

    G fob, I always keep my solar watches by the window. Especially to make sure the atomic models got a signal.

    My eco drives have been happy living in the same environment. Not bashing any brands here, I just wanted mine to work.
