    @Lee

    Hi Lee, It's 1.5" across the face, the band is 9" long total including the face, and is

    adjustable to fit most wrist sizes.

    Hi Eliza,

    Sorry there is not a children's size available, the band would fit ages 12+

    depending on wrist size.

    What exact materials are the watch bands made from? I do not want to purchase a watch that contains silicone, rubber or latex.

    Hi Billie,

    The bands are recycled materials, and could contain small amounts

    of rubber or silicone.

    @billie You could always replace the watch band with a leather, cloth or metal band, although that would add about $20 to the cost.

    Hi Robert,

    The watches are water resistant but not totally water proof, it doesn't

    hurt to get them wet, but not for use under water.

    To clarify the water resistant question a bit more, they are rated

    "5" bar water resistant, you can have limited use under water,

    but they are not recommended for diving or snorkeling.

    I am confused. You say there is no battery, so how are you storing the solar electricity?

  • Guest

    @john I can't say for certain, but most of the solar-powered watches that I've seen have a capacitor to store the electrical energy. Capacitors last longer than batteries, but can't store as much electrical energy as a battery hence the need to recharge after only 3 days.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi John,

    The part that stores the energy is embedded in the watch and doesn't

    have to be replaced.

    Hi Alice,

    About 6-8 hours will give the watch power for 3 months.
