Tissot is the leader of watch industry of the watches from 200 until 1000 euros.One of the most popular is the touch series.This series are the best in this category worldwide.Tissot T Touch is a revolution watch but with many problems and for this reason make the exchange program with Tissot T Touch expert.Tissot T Touch expert is powerful watch with more functions from the first Tissot T Touch.
Tissot make a new model the New Tissot Solar Touch T091.420.44.051.00.With the first look the watch seems more like a Gadget or High tech watch and have miles from the optical line from the other Tissot T Touch watches.The watch is more bigger from Expert serious.The case dimension is 44.umm without the Buttons.(bezel dimension).
The dial surface is more bigger from the other Touch series and this make it from my opinion because the movement need real solar energy to charge the ML2016 capacitor.One of the new function of the watch is the capacitor level.And Continue with Matterial.The Solar Touch made from Titanium and PVD on bezel.( Physical Vapor Deposition).The Weigth of the watch with the bracelet is 122 gr.
In the steel watches is only the bracelet have this weight.
The New Tissot Solar Touch is first watch come with Matterial like aluminium.In the next month’s we can see new models from this Series from Aluminium with real amazing colors but all with rubber plastic.In the next months I will make new posts for these models from Aluminium.
What’s New on Functions
Let’s Start from 12 O clock.In Functions in all touch series is the meteo and the same is in the solar Touch.With 2 Functions.When you Choose the Meteo The watch come in the first Function of Meteo.
The first Function is the Rel.In the LCD you can see the REL means Relative pressure display in hAp.
If you touch the metro again you can see the function 2 is Abs.This mean Absolute Pressure Display in hPa.
In The 2 o clock in all Tissot Touch Series is The Altimeter.
The Altimeter in The New Tissot Solar Touch have 2 Functions.
The First is Altimeter Reading as all the Touch series of Tissot and show the Altimeter from the sea surface.

The Altimeter upgrade from Tissot and make it a perfect function.
In the 4 O clock we have the Chrono Function.

of around 30° per second.
The New function is the Azimuth reading.The Azimuth is a real good tool for the people who need a real compass for Driving the Right Way.

The Center function is more reach from previous Tissot T Touch series.
If you activate the button of the touch
And press the center of the glass you can see:

Example.I am from Greece I choose North in the display nor.
The other is the local climate.
Other example for my place.I choose Mediterranean in the display is MEd.
The other symbol is tRo tropical, POL polar,Dry,
The other mode is ECO
ECO is like screensaver in monitor.
You can choose yes or no or auto.
With this mode you can save the battery in the night if the watch is not operated for 1 hour when the time 1 (swap time 1) is between 22:00 and 5:00
The watch deactivated and the analogue indicates the time 1
If you choose in ECO no the watch never switches back to energy saving mode.
