Fossil's latest is the sustainable “SOLAR WATCH” with straps made out of plastic waste
Apps Unveiled|July 2020
Popular watch brand Fossil is on the mission to design and produce 100% of its products to meet its pro-planet criteria by 2025. Specifically, the company wants every product in its portfolio to include at least one sustainability-approved material and all of its primary packaging (i.e. the packaging you take home when you get a Fossil product) to be recyclable and/or reusable. To keep up with the commitment, Fossil has recently launched the limited edition of solar-powered timepiece.

HOW DOES SOLAR WATCH 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.
