Our First Step: The Solar WatchTo celebrate this commitment, Fossil is proud to announce the Solar Watch. This solar-powered timepiece is the first step in our ongoing commitment to create products that are more sustainable and #MakeTimeForGood.
How Does It Work?The outer ring of the watch case acts as a solar panel, capturing light and converting it to energy using a solar cell beneath the dial. It then stores the energy in a rechargeable battery that powers the movement of the watch. Once fully charged, the Solar Watch is expected to run for around 4 months before you will need to charge it again.
From Trash To TreasuredIn addition to opting for a more sustainable, solar-powered movement, the Solar Watch comes equipped with five pull-through straps, which are made with yarn spun from approximately 16 plastic bottles (16oz). That is 16 fewer bottles in a landfill, or an ocean or a national park, and one step closer to a greener future. Also Read: Vu Launches Ultra 4K TVs in India; Price Starts from ₹25,999
Free Tree With Purchase!We are partnering with EcoMatcher to plant a tree in honor of each person who purchases the Solar Watch. Wearers simply follow the instructions inside the Solar Watch’s box to name their tree, see where it is planted and track its CO2 performance! EcoMatcher plants trees and forests with foundations that 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.
