A month after Starfield‘s release, some fans are already experiencing defects with the game’s Collector’s Edition watch. The pricey $300 edition comes with a number of items including a steelbook display case, a Constellation logo patch and the highlight of the package: a watch with its own custom case. Sadly, the Starfield watch seems to be defective as buyers have taken to Reddit to express their frustrations.
As reported by The Gamer, a recent Reddit post from user Tovrin explained how their Starfield Collector’s Edition watch is now “dead” and refusing to function. Apparently the user left it on charge but it’s no longer functional. Other users in the comment section chimed in with similar issues about their watches. One user claimed that their watch “died after four days” and are currently waiting for a replacement from Bethesda while another said that their watch had dead pixels on its screen out the box.
The good news is that Tovrin’s Reddit post seemed to have caught the attention of Bethesda who are now sending the user a replacement for their defective watch too. Thankfully these seem to be mostly isolated cases as other players happily reported that their watches still work fine – some even wearing it to work everyday with no issues. Some helpful comments also suggested that fans don’t leave the watch to charge overnight as it could potentially damage the device, but rather quick-charge it as it has a decently long battery life.
In other news, Bethesda’s Todd Howard has high hopes that Starfield will be a game that players enjoy “for a long time” as the company slowly shifts its focus to The Elder Scrolls 6, which according to leaked Microsoft documents, could launch as soon as 2026, though it will be exclusive to Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Starfield is now available for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
