It's been 11 days now since the watch arrived. Today was the first day the charge indicator went to 30. There's been "a whole lot a shaking going on" since it arrived. Today is also the first time it went from an indicated charge of 30 back to a 20. If I shake it about five minutes it will go back to 30. This tells me the watch is getting charged a little bit more each day and I have about a month of charge built up. As for accuracy, I THINK it has gained 1 second in 11 days. It is hard to tell. I'll take that accuracy everyday.
I'm sure you already know, but just in case, Kinetic watches convert motion into energy and store it to power the quartz movement. This particular watch is supposed to last 6 months on a full charge (with no movement) before going dead. While I have yet to have it run to exhaustion, it's hard to measure this if you rotate through watches and wear this a few days and then switch through several others for several weeks then come back to it. It's just never sat in my case for 6 solid months. In order to determine the rough level of charge there is a button (seen in the picture above the crown). Push it and the second hand will swing up to 180 degrees to denote the remaining charge. I expect that every 5 min mark represents a month worth of charge.
The watch itself is very clean and easy to read. I'm a little disappointed that it only offers the date (with no day display), but this isn't a deal breaker for me. The band is heavy steel, you will feel this on your arm. As someone who almost always sleeps with my watch on, I find this watch to be the regular cause of "dead arm" if I fall asleep wearing it. If you have the tools and like to adjust metal watch bands to better fit you at home, beware this does not use the simple tension rods you may be familiar with. Instead this uses a straight rod and a secondary cylinder (female end) which prevents the pin from pushing straight through the band. It's not too hard to get together, but they are tiny and are prone to roll off into oblivion if you're not expecting them when you pop the pin. Once they fall off a table/desk it's no fun trying to find them.
The watch band also has a small secondary clasp which will increase the band size slightly to help fit it over a wet suit. While I am SCUBA certified, I haven't been able to dive lately so I have yet to put that to the test. I will say that so far it's almost impossible to depress the spring pins to open up the clasp with fingers alone. While I appreciate that anyone wearing this watch wouldn't want it to open on it's own... having to have a set of tools handy whenever you wanted to utilize this band extension is equally problematic.
The nice thing about buying Seiko watches direct from Amazon is that you do enjoy a 3 year warranty on the purchase. If you buy from a third party seller, be aware that you may or may not have warranty coverage and it will almost certainly be through that seller and not Seiko. If they are reputable, that is probably just fine... if it's some here today gone tomorrow outfit and your watch goes south you could be footing the repair bills yourself.
All in all, I enjoy wearing this watch from time to time. It dresses up and down very well so it could be a great gift for the watch lover in your life that may be an avid outdoors-man or a business professional (or maybe he's both). It's hard to go wrong with Seiko in my opinion for fine watches in this price point. I love Omega and Rolex, but it's a lot less painful to have a beautiful collection of $200 - $500 Seikos as opposed to $2000 - $5000 Omega/Rolex.
