does not keep a charge
January 13, 2019
I have several kinetic watches and I like to rotate wearing them. Some of them will stay charged for months. This watch does not keep a charge over four hours. Unfortunately my return window has closed, but hopefully I can save someone else from making the same mistake I did.
EDIT: In regards to the post below:
I should have pointed out that I wore this watch for a few days when I got it and it was fine. Then, it took a bad turn. But, as pointed out, it is my mistake for not keeping a better eye on it. I should have known that these watches store charges very easily, and easily manage the stated 40 hour reserves. I would have been able to tell from day 1 how the charge was keeping, and whether it was faulty. But, it did not show this problem from day one. I did the proper checks - I wore it and made sure it was working.
It is my fault for not keeping myself much more abreast of my watch performance daily, even when I was not wearing it.
My only hope is my review helps someone else make an informed decision. My experience has no bearing here, I do not feel like I am a victim, I just got a bad watch and did not return it in time. I just want to help someone else make an informed decision.
