This solar-powered watch for women has a traditional style that includes a full analog display with three hands, a screw lock crown, and a date display for the day of the month. Other features include shock resistance, 100-meter water resistance, mineral glass, and low battery alert. The watch can run for about 5 months on a full charge.
The debut models include the MSG-S500-7A with a blush resin band and silver stainless steel bezel and case, the MSG-S500G-1A with a black resin band and rose gold IP stainless steel bezel and case, and the MSG-S500G-7A with a white resin band and gold IP stainless steel bezel and case. The MSG-S500 has a relatively thin form factor with dimensions of 42.4 x 38.8 x 10.5 millimeters and a weight of 37 grams. This is 1.8 millimeter thinner than the MSG-S200.
The solar power system on the MSG-S500 is not “Tough Solar” like the MSG-S200, with the difference appearing to be a shorter run time (5 months versus 11 months on a full charge, but this shouldn’t be much of a concern if the watch is regularly exposed to light and kept fully charged) and the lack of a power saving function.
