Solios watches was founded in Montreal by two eager entrepreneurs, Sam and Alex, with the goal of offering a brand new watch alternative that reflects the brand’s vision and social ideals. Their goal was to encourage everyone and offer them an alternative way to consume responsibly without having to compromise on style. This means that from the start, Solios had to produce a watch that met all of the consumers’ purchase criteria at the same time, optimized the design and minimized environmental impact, and responded very well to the challenge.
How Solios revolutionized the base clock to include renewable energies
The solar technology contained in the Solios watch is just one of the many aspects of the watch as a whole that make this product unique. The battery is not only rechargeable for life – only 2 hours of exposure to natural or artificial light convert energy worth 6 months – but the company also managed to develop its own housing that completely hides the solar panel without charging reduce capacity. To achieve this goal, they were able to offer a product with a minimalist design that stays fashionable over time and makes the visual aspect of the watch as sustainable as its technology. The result is an elegant, thin case with no unnecessary craftsmanship or texture.
Around 300 million batteries could be saved each year if all clocks were operated with solar energy. On top of that, dead batteries are one of the main reasons for over-consumption in the watch market and you realize that solar technology is really the future of the quartz movement in the watch industry. However, every product with such a long life cycle must be built accordingly, since it is only as durable as the materials from which it is made. The production process had to be revised in order to adapt the entire design of the product to company standards.
An environmentally friendly product is only as environmentally friendly as it is manufactured
If you’ve heard of solios before, you know that the ecological challenges of our planet are at the heart of the company’s vision. A Solios watch plays an important role in promoting your environmental values. Its simple but refined look will draw people’s attention and give you the opportunity to brag a little bit about all the extra values you have advertised by purchasing this particular item. This little accessory with a big impact will constantly remind us how we can all improve the world we live in when we consciously make sustainable purchasing decisions.
But what does that mean exactly? While the green characteristics of the watch are now fairly obvious, it is important to mention that Solios has done everything it can to optimize its supply chain. The two founders personally visited their suppliers around the world to check for themselves whether the production chain and the work ethic of their partners meet the highest standards, both socially and ecologically. After just a year of doing business, they completely redesigned their packaging to have it made on site from 100% recycled and recyclable cardboard, eliminating disposable plastic packaging for shipping and transportation.
As if that wasn’t enough The company strives to give something back Support complementary initiatives around the world to protect our environment. Her give-back program started in the first year of its existence. By partnering with the Rainforest Trust, they now want to save one hectare of tropical forest per watch sold. Their previous initiatives also included campaigns to support organizations like the David Suzuki Foundation and the Make-a-Wish Foundation, although they recently decided to realign their engagement to focus on one thing and maximize its impact.
An elegant design that fits your everyday life
The watch is available in two sizes – 36mm and 40mm – both available for men and women. You can choose between a white or black dial, which is combined with the rose gold, silver or black case. Thanks to the variety of interchangeable bracelets, you can really customize your watch to your own style. Choose between eco leather, magnetic mesh metal or hemp bracelets that perfectly complement your accessory to your day look.
The Solios 316L stainless steel watch is really a high quality, durable piece. The scratch-resistant sapphire coating and water resistance (3 ATM) also make it safe for you to wear your watch in everyday life without fear of damaging it. You will most likely never need to claim the company’s 3-year warranty.
Solios becomes the industry leader for solar watches
Solios is looking forward to diversifying its range and launching a variety of new products in the future (look forward to the limited edition with a blue dial that will appear in the fall)! However, one thing is certain: All of their watches will be solar powered, as the renewable energy aspect is at the heart of the company’s vision.
Needless to say, the founders really did everything possible to optimize their product as much as possible and are constantly looking for improvements. The solar powered timepiece act as a symbol of what we want for our future: renewable energies, well thought-out products, sustainable materials and fashionable, long-lasting designs.
Solios, a watch with a purpose that can be worn in style every day.
