How a Low Battery Affects Your Watch
Is your watch acting strange or appearing to malfunction? You might have a low battery. If this is the case, take it to your local Tucson jewelry store to have a professional take a look at it. In the meantime, keep reading to find out how a low battery affects your watch.
Type of Watch
There are many different types of watches: Wind-up watches, quartz watches, and digital watches are just a few examples. The way a low battery will affect your watch depends on the type of watch you wear. A mechanical watch might slow down as its battery approaches the end of its working life. A watch with low battery might indicate that it is the wrong time. Digital watches are immune from this problem. A digital watch will display the correct time until its battery completely dies. While a mechanical watch might display the wrong time when its battery is low, its digital counterpart will remain accurate until it turns off.
End of Life Indicators
Sometimes a quartz watch that is running out of battery will continue to display the correct time. If the second hand of your quartz watch skips less frequently but makes up for it by skipping farther ahead, your watch currently has low battery. This is an end of life indicator that alerts you to the low battery level. If you do not know what type of battery to use with your watch, take it to a local jewelry store.
A low battery may cause your watch to act as if it has a short circuit. Low battery and short circuits may both slow the time that your watch displays. If you are unsure of what is wrong with your watch, take it to a Tucson jewelry store and have it evaluated.
