Many of the better Eco-Drives have battery level meters. I suspect if the battery level is kept at medium or higher, the battery will last for many years, possibly 15 or more. Fully draining a rechargeable watch battery will have a negative effect on its expected lifetime.

On another subject, it was nice to see my two Casio and one Citizen radio-controlled watches properly set themselves for Daylight Saving Time this morning.

Not that long ago, DST lasted for about 6-1/2 months or roughly half of the year. Now DST lasts for about 8 months or 2/3 of the year. They still have those announcements about changing your smoke alarm batteries when changing the time to/from DST. Probably four month old smoke alarm batteries don't need changing yet.

Vesa, Finn

Anyone considering "Citizen Eco-Drive" should also take a look at "Casio Oceanus". In the U.S. the watches have gotten rid of the mundane "Casio" brand showing just "Oceanus" on the watches, I think.

They (watches branded "Oceanus") may not be manly enough, though?
