If you're new to solar-powered watches, you might be wondering what all the hype is about. Here are five reasons why you need to add one to your every day carry.
1. No Batteries to Replace
The biggest advantage of a solar-powered watch is that you never have to replace the battery. Instead, each watch comes with a rechargeable battery that charges in both natural and artificial light. That means that you never have to worry about your watch dying on you in the wild. It also means that you're not sending toxic substances to the landfill or shelling out money for new batteries every year.
2. Easy to Use and Maintain
Having a Solar watch with a simple design makes it easy to tell what time it is at a glance. There are no buttons or screen to unlock. Because they charge through solar power, One Eleven watches are practically maintenance free. Just strap yours on your wrist, set the time and date, and head out on your next adventure.
3. Good both on and off the grid
The design of solar-powered watches has changed considerably since their introduction years ago. In fact, you'd have a difficult time telling a solar watch and a battery-powered watch apart simply by looking at their designs. The stainless steel cases paired with either leather or nylon straps have versatile style that's perfect for being in the city or out in the wild.
4. Rugged Design
One of the most important features of a solar-powered watch is the rugged build that's tough enough to handle all of life's big adventures. Whether you're hiking trails or relaxing in a hammock at your favorite campsite, your solar watch is durable enough to handle it all. It has a hardened mineral quartz lens that resists scratches and has a 10ATM water resistancy, making it perfect for indoor and outdoor activities.
5. Sustainable Packaging
While many people don't think twice about packaging, the materials used can be a tremendous drain on the environment, and they often go straight into the trash. Packages for solar watches from One Eleven are made from 100 percent post-consumer waste. No new materials used in package production means that both the watch and its packaging are eco-friendly!
Most people have access to the time on their smartphones or other electronic devices. However, when you're trying to unplug in the great outdoors, you might not want to worry about dropping your phone in a lake or looking for a way to charge it. That’s where a One Eleven solar-powered watch has you covered. It's constantly charging, so you can count on your watch to keep you on time for all of life’s great adventures.
