Question about Tissot T-Race Mens Black Automatic Chronograph Sport Watch T0484272705701
I bought this Tissot T Race Automatic Chronograph watch just a month back, and I dont wear it everyday - but I am surprised that even if I dont wear it 1 / 2 days it runs out of juice and stops working. I hate resetting each time I have to wear it - is this normal? I've had many other Auto Chrono watches other from smaller brands like seiko and casio they go on forever without wearing. I have warranty, if this is not normal, then I could act asap.
You can buy a automatic watch winder from amazon on the link below.but normally they only go for just over 2 days.

Got the same model (the golden one) encountered the same issue, if you don't have the watch box and you wont use the watch, mount it on an oscillating electric fan that you use everyday (so that it will keep on moving whenever you use the fan), that will do the trick ;)

As the name suggests, it is AUTOMATIC watch. That means the watch is wound by the movement of your wrist and the energy of oscillating weight is transferred in to mainspring through gears. Usual power reserve for modern mainsprings is about 42 hours or less, so , do not expect watch will run longer than that if you do not wear it or wind it up.
If your Seiko or Citizen watches were running longer, that means these watches weren't AUTOMATIC. These are Kinetic, Solar or battery powered.

A self winding watch will run for 2-3 days if it is not worn (they thrive on being used) and it sounds as if you have not been using it; is this the case?
It could be that the winder does not operate on the spring (some watches don't), so to wind it up you need to activate the self winding mechanism.
You can do this by gently swinging the watch from side to side for a few minutes. This will simulate the normal operation when it is being worn.
If you continue to have trouble with it stopping, it could be that it needs cleaning. I had a similar problem with a watch I had some years ago.

I would not wind the watch manually. I also have a Tissot. If you cannot wear it often enough to keep it going, you can purchase a watch box that is made for self-winding watches which will turn the watch periodically in order to keep it wound.
