Different types of watch movements
The heart of the watch is the mechanism that drives it. The most popular mechanism is Quartz movement, which means that it's a powered by a battery (which will need replacing after a few years).
Eco Drive watches are solar powered so you should never need to replace the battery. They generate energy from any light source, which is then stored and used to continually re-charge the watch.
Watches with an automatic or kinetic movement have no battery, instead they are powered by your movement. The simple movement of the watch on your wrist keeps the watch wound making them ideal for everyday use.
What is a hybrid watch?
The hybrid smartwatch is the best of both worlds. Because every chat, step and selfie counts, the hybrid smartwatch allows you to receive filtered notifications, track activity and take photos from your wrist - with no charging needed. Each watch comes with a standard coin cell battery that lasts from five months up to a year, depending on the style.
