For many years, watch manufacturers have worked hard to make their watches with more functionality while making them more efficient. This has always been a challenge, where so many manufacturers have their own ideas on how best to achieve these goals. With Citizen, they have now developed their 3rd generation of their popular watch the Skyhawk which is packed with features and amazing technology.
- Solar Power
Probably the most amazing feature of this watch is Citizens patented Eco-Drive Technology. This technology involves the use of a solar panel which is located under the dial of the watch. Light is absorbed through the crystal and the dial, and is converted into energy that charges the watch. With this system, the watch can be fully charged in 150 hours in average lighting. This will run the watch for 180 days under normal conditions, or up to 2.5 years if using the power save function. It also has a low power warning that will alert you when you have three days of power left.
