In the modern world, being eco-friendly has become a big issue. People from different industries have realized the importance of being eco-friendly. Now, when we are using the term eco-friendly, we want to mean an industry which is making use of some alternate source of energy for its operation. As far as, the watch industry is concerned, Citizen was one of the first to realize the importance of being eco-friendly and thus Citizen Eco watch came into the picture.

These timepieces are come under special brand of watches in which the optimum utilization of other resources of energy is used. The different types of Citizen Eco watch available are the ones that have light as the source of power, temperature difference as the power source and some use hybrid eco-drive movement.

Now, going in a bit of detail of these watches, the watches which make use of light as the source of power are generally equipped with a secondary battery. This secondary battery, in general, gets powered by the solar energy. Since, in most of the cases, the watch gets exposed to sunlight for a considerable amount of time during the time during the day, the secondary battery absorbs enough resources to drive the watch.

Moving to the next type of watches that is the one which makes use of the difference of temperature as the source of power, we find that in these cases, the difference of the temperature between the wearer's arm and the surrounding environment is taken as the source of a constant power when the wearer is wearing the watch in his or her hand. For the third type of watch belonging to this class, hybrid technology is used.

In general the life expectancy of these secondary batteries is also very high and so these watches can surely be relied upon.
