Traditional ways of powering a watch include manually winding them or using a battery. Seiko has developed a range of watches powered by converting kinetic energy from movement into electrical energy. The Kinetic Sports 100 watch uses this mechanism. If your Kinetic watch stops moving, it may be possible to manually restart it before resorting to taking it to a Seiko-approved dealer for repair.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn the watch's crown counter-clockwise until it pops out into the first position of manual wind.

  2. 2

    Turn the watch crown clockwise for at least 30 turns. Look at the hands to make sure they are not moving.

  3. 3

    Push the crown in and screw it counter-clockwise until it is locked into position. If the watch is functioning, the hands will begin to move.

  4. 4

    Navigate to the Customer Service section of Seiko's website. Click on your area to find the nearest Seiko-approved dealers.

  5. 5

    Take the watch to your local Seiko-approved dealer. Explain that the watch is not functioning. The dealer will be able to fix it in-house or will send it away to a Seiko repair facility.
