Question about Pulsar Tech Gear PUA115 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

For lack of a better term - the watch will not hold a charge (solar). I have exposed it to light (regularly) and when I reset the time it will occasionally work for a few minutes, then stop. What else can I try or am I just missing something obvious??

Everything other than the battery is fine. Please replace the battery as it may have outlived its life. The battery is not holding the required charge.

    Your are right and even I am aware that the watch is solar powered but the charge has to be stored somewhere and it is the battery that holds the charge. And since the watch works for a few minutes after being exposed to the sun/light means that the charge holding unit, battery or whatever it is, is not holding the charge for a long duration. And hence needs to be changed.

Battery indicator issue


Although your watch is solar-power all Eco-Drive watches contain a rechargeable battery known as a capacitor. They last longer than a regular battery but are difficult to get replaced because nobody carries them. Firstly I assure you whoever opened the watch did damage it. The solar sell is under the dial so removing the back would not have exposed it to anything. Rechargeable batteries do not hold a charge forever and do need to be replaced every 5-10 years. In order to know which capacitor you need you need to find out what movement model is in the watch (this is different than the model number of the watch you must physically look at the movement) (unlike batteries capacitors all have the same number on the cell so you need to know the movement number to order the proper size). Once you have obtained the capacitor repairing your watch because no more difficult then changing a battery. I'd ask those people to take the back off again so you can find out what movement is in the watch. Typically it's a 4 digit number but sometimes it also has letters in front of it and I've also seen them with only 3 digits. If you could supply me with the movement number I can supply you with a the proper capacitor at a price of $45 with free shipping and tracking.

Hello there.

As you can see in the picture, it takes some time to charge the watch up 100%. If you are charging the watch indoors, then it will take 126 hours. The best thing to do would be leave it in sunlight for up to 6hours and the charge should come back fine.

I have a timex solar and the indiglo stoped and the wach is losing time the bat. Is new


your Timex watch is solar which means it gets power from light, you have to expose it on direct light to recharge your battery but if it not works you had to bring it to timex service center. i hope this will help you.

Mtg 900 comes up charge and says recover. What do i need to do? I tried charging it under a lamp for several hours but that does not last long.


I have a watch which is solar type and the instructions say that several hours of sunlight will charge the battery but lamps need much longer (1 -2 days!), my watch now is left in a drawer.

If you haven't got instructions for your watch, to check what Casio recommend, you can get them on the net.

You can get instructions from the Casio web site.

Go to the casio web site "casio.com".

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

Is it SOLAR?
I have a Casio Pathfinder, SOLAR, ATOMIC! They have a permanent battery!!!
It must be exposed to the sun occasionally to charge. If yours has nothing on the display, try putting it out in the sun for a day. Put it in a window, sitting on a window sill. Depending on how little charge it has, it may take as long as three days to charge.
Otherwise, the alternative is calling Casio, getting an RMA and sending it to them for a battery replacement.

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!
