FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES THE SOLAR WATCH WORK?

The outer ring of the watch case acts as a solar panel: It captures light and converts it to energy using a solar cell beneath the dial, then it stores the energy in a rechargeable battery that powers the movement of the watch.

DOES IT ONLY USE SUNLIGHT AS AN ENERGY SOURCE?

Actually, no! The Solar Watch can convert other forms of light into energy, such as light from a fluorescent lamp.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FULLY CHARGE THE BATTERY?

In full sunlight, the Solar Watch will be fully charged after about five hours of light exposure.

IS IT 100% SUSTAINABLE?

Unfortunately, no — but it’s a step in the right direction. Our goal is to make 100% of our products meet our pro-planet criteria by 2025, and we’re making strides to accomplish that goal efficiently and effectively. The Solar Watch may not be a perfectly sustainable product, but it puts into practice simple, pro-planet solutions that we hope to implement across our product assortment in the very near future.

I READ THAT THE SOLAR WATCH WAS DESIGNED TO MEET FOSSIL’S “PRO-PLANET” CRITERIA. WHAT ARE THOSE CRITERIA?

Great question! We currently have two main criteria in place:

  • The product must include at least one sustainability-approved material. For details on our criteria for sustainability-approved materials, click the link below.
  • The product’s primary packaging (i.e. the packaging you take home when you get a Fossil product) must be recyclable and/or reusable.

Our goal is to design and produce 100% of our products to meet these pro-planet criteria by 2025. To find out more about our sustainability targets and programs, visit fossilgroup.com/sustainability.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN TO RECHARGE IT?

When the energy storage is reduced to an extremely low level, the second hand will start moving at two-second intervals instead of its normal one-second intervals. At that point, you have about one day of reserve power left, so recharge your watch as soon as possible by exposing it to light.

IS IT VEGAN?

Yes! We’re proud to say that no animal byproducts were used in the making of this timepiece.

 

HOW LONG WILL IT RUN?

Once fully charged, the Solar Watch is expected to run for around four months before you’ll need to charge it again.

WHAT DOES ECOMATCHER DO?

EcoMatcher plants individual trees and complete forests around the world with foundations EcoMatcher vets. Through technology, EcoMatcher has full traceability and tracks every tree planted in great detail. Once you own a tree you can virtually travel to it to learn more about its location, species, level of carbon sequestered from the environment, and even the farmer who is taking care of the tree.

HOW DOES THE TREE PLANTING WORK?

EcoMatcher partners with foundations in different parts of the world, including Nepal, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Uganda, Peru, and Guatemala. Every tree planted is captured with TreeCorder, an app developed by EcoMatcher, and used by the foundations. TreeCorder captures the location of the tree, the species, and more. EcoMatcher brings full transparency and accountability to tree planting.

For all trees purchased by Fossil, or any company or individual, these trees are planted genuinely and specifically for that purpose only. For your tree given to you, only you will ever adopt that tree.

HOW DO I GET MY TREE?

With your purchase of the Solar Watch, you can go to https://www.ecomatcher.com/redeem/?cmp=fossil and enter the serial number of your watch to claim your tree.
If you'd like to buy trees yourself, please visit https://www.ecomatcher.com/shop/. Once you have selected the country and number of trees, after payment, you can virtually travel to your trees and start exploring.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY TREE?

You can virtually travel to your tree, learn what type of tree it is, and how that tree will look like in 5-8 years. You can also see the farmer who is taking care of the tree, and you can send him a message! Last but not least, you can even chat with your chatbot-powered tree, making tree-planting fun and engaging. Try it out!

ANYTHING ELSE NOTEWORTHY ABOUT THE SOLAR WATCH?

In addition to opting for a more sustainable, solar-powered movement, the Solar Watch comes equipped with five pull-through straps, each made with yarn spun from plastic bottles. We also used castor oil, an environmentally-friendly material, to develop a partially bio-based plastic for the Solar Watch’s case. Last but not least, we developed the packaging entirely from paper, so it is 100% recyclable in many recycling programs.
