I received the Citizen Eco-Drive POV 2 Womens watch as a surprise Valentine’s gift from my hubby, and I really love this watch
Citizen Eco-Drive POV 2 Womens Watch is very stylish and stands out due to the Swarovski Crystal Bezel together with Silver Tone finish. It looks great for both casual and formal occasions. The watch is not heavy, it in fact it feels really light on my petite wrist.
Here are some of the key features that I like about Citizen Eco-Drive POV 2 Womens Watch
Material and color
This is a silver tone watch in stainless steel and Swarovski crystal bezel gives a very elegant look. The band and the case color are silver which I really like but there is down side in the sunlight it is a bit difficult to read the time.
This watch is also available in gold tone and two tone colors, however the silver tone watch is more practical as it can go with any set of clothes.
The Dial window is made of mineral crystal which means that it is composed of several elements that are heat treated to create hardness and help resist any scratches. I have used the watch on an everyday basis and I don’t see any scratches on the dial.
The display makes the watch look like a chronograph but it’s not. There are three smaller dials which show the date of the month, day of the week and 24 hour time. This is perfect for me, because who really uses the chronograph function on the watch? when you have so many free apps on your Android or iPhone.
My initial reaction when I saw the Citizen Eco-Drive POV 2 Womens Watch was that it may look too big and bulky on my petite hand. After having tried the watch it turned out to be a perfect fit, with the case diameter measuring 34mm, band width 16mm and weight of the watch being just 16 Ounces.
Eco-Drive equipped watches are fueled by light and hence do not require a regular battery. The watch converts any light source natural or artificial into energy which is stored in a power reserve which charges the time piece. With regular use the recharging is automatic due to frequent exposure to light. However if you have a large watch collection and plan to use it sparingly, it’s not advisable to store the watch in the dark for a period exceeding 5-6 months as you will then run out of power.
The watch is water resistant up to 330 feet and can be used while swimming and snorkeling. I have used it several times in the swimming pool and I have not faced any problems
Warranty and Price of Citizen Eco-Drive POV 2 Womens Watch
Watches sold on Amazon or any other 3rd party online stores don’t come with any official manufacturer warranty, that you would typically get when you buy a watch from a brick and mortar store. The vendor selling the watch on Amazon will usually provide a one or two year warranty on the watch, but this is again not a manufacturer warranty and it is really up to you to ship the product to the vendor’s location in case you run into a problem with your watch.
I have bought several watches on Amazon and generally I have never had any problem with them. Besides the price difference between Amazon and physical stores is typically so high that with the money saved you can easily cover the cost of any possible repairs, if they come up in the future.
The Citizen Eco-Drive POV 2 Womens Watch is priced around $200 on Amazon.
I closely compared this with other Citizen Eco-drive watches with a similar price range and features, like the Citizen Eco drive Quartz gold dial FB1342-56P, Citizen Eco drive Quartz Silver Dial FB1290-58A and the Citizen Quartz Beige dial watch FD1063-57X Rose gold tone watch. I found the Citizen Eco-Drive POV 2 Womens Watch to be best in terms of looks, features and price.
Overall it is a sleek, elegant and durable watch. Hope my review helps you buy the appropriate Citizen Eco drive watch of your choice.
