    Solar Mudman Battery at Medium. I HATE WINTER!!

    My new Muddie's battery has gone to Medium and because of the storms we have been having there's no sun to charge it. I have had it off and facing the window in the car as I drive, but cloudy skies don't help much.

    This is the problem with solar watches - they give the wearer extra reasons to be dissatisfied.

    'Medium' is fine, of course.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Light source from lamps can also charge your solar Mudman.

    I was hanging my arm out the window today to charge mine. I was very thankful for the sunny weather here in NC.

    Don't do it! This is where the 'convenience' of solar watches turns turtle.

    Been down that road before. It takes much longer than sunlight.

    Wear the watch and DO NOT worry about it.

    Once fully charged, these things can run for months. Don't worry.

    I had a GW-500 that went down to nothing, so I do worry.

    The GW-500 (along with the GW-300 and G-5600) was an early and notoriously unreliable atomic-solar model.
