Battery power not lasting

Hi the problem is since returning from Iraq (im in the forces) iv had new batterys in my watch and they only last about 3 days if i try and use any of the functions. When you try the Barometer it comes up ERR. everything else works for the first day. Then you try anything and it all fades untill the battery power goes all together. If anyone has had any problems like this and found a cure please let me know.
Thanks for your time. Steve Please reply at smudges50@hotmail.com

The screen may be damaged. Or just faulty. If it had to go through too much shock, its trash.

I have a Gucci watch which cost £630.00 and the battery lasted 17 months, is that the usual life span for a battery


it can be--their is no definite life span of a battery because everything has a different draw of power a simple watch can last years while more complex such as date/stop watch /backlight etc will draw and kill battery quicker

SEIKO KINETIC SQ 50 HAVE USE MY WATCH FOR 14 YRS


It is unlikely that the capacitor will have any charge on it so you should shake it gently to charge it up. You certainly can't do any harm by charging it, even if the capacitor did have any charge.

Second hand moving in 4 second increments instead of 1 second clicks. Does this mean it needs service or just a new battery?


Hi,

This means it needs a new battery. But if your watch is about 5 years old it is best to have it serviced. The oils in the movement will be drying out and this causes the gear train to require more power from the battery to make it move. By drawing more power from the battery, the battery will not last as long. This shortening of the battery life continues until the watch is serviced or eventually a new battery will not get the watch to run.

All watches require regular service to stay working properly.

Hope this helps,

Ken

Watch has no power. How do I power it back up?


The catalogue says "never needs a battery" and as it is a "radio controlled " type, then it must have a battery that is charged by power generated by motion.

To get the watch to go, then you should wave it backwards and forwards for some time ( 100's of times according to one maker!). This will charge the battery.

Leave the watch overnight so that it can pick up the timing signal and correct the watch. I did this with mine when the battery was changed and it lost its time and it took a couple of days before it told the right time, so be patient.

If the watch refuses to show any sign of life, then it should be returned to an authorised repair agent for inspection.

I havent worn this watch for about a year the battery has 10 year warranty and was working fine.now it has stopped working.


A few watch companies...Bulova being one of them used to give a 10 year warranty but I dont know of any batteries that actually last 10 years! The average life of a 1.5 volt silver oxide battery is 2-3 years (sometimes a smidge longer) depending on the age and condition of the watch. A 3 volt lithium battery will get on average 3-4 years.

Im guessing that your battery is probably dead! :-)

Longines watch problem


Some longines watch has built-in battery gauge. When battery is low, the second hand jumps every four seconds. If you have new battery installed and the problem persists then there is a short circuit somewhere that drinks a lot of battery juice.

Like anon129 I had the same problem. Those "outdoor" functions need more battery power than just telling the time and the stopwatch do. When the rechargeable lithium battery gets old and tired - which they apparently sometimes do for no very good reason - it can't provide enough power when required to, so it goes into recovery mode. It's very annoying but if your battery level indicator is already showing H the only solution is to replace the battery.
My second battery seems to be lasting better, but I'm not leaving it charging in the sun for ages this time, as I think it overheats it when the battery is full. I'm also not using the outdoor features as much, and the light hardly at all.
