• The margin of error for the angle value and the direction indicator is ±15 degrees while the watch is
horizontal (in relation to the horizon). If the indicated direction is northwest (NW) and 315 degrees, for
example, the actual direction can be anywhere from 300 to 330 degrees.
• Note that performing a digital compass operation while the watch is not horizontal (in relation to the
horizon) can result in large error.
• You can calibrate the bearing sensor if you suspect the direction reading is incorrect.
E-22
• Any ongoing digital compass operation is paused temporarily while the watch is performing an alert
operation (daily alarm, Hourly Time Signal, countdown timer alarm) or while illumination is turned on (by
pressing B). The digital compass operation resumes for its remaining duration after the operation that
caused it to pause is finished.
• See “Digital Compass Precautions” (page E-31) for important information about taking direction readings.
• The direction indicated by the Digital Compass is magnetic north.
You can use Magnetic Declination Correction to configure the watch to indicate true north, if you want.
For details, see “Magnetic Declination Correction” below, “To perform magnetic declination correction”
(page E-26), and “Magnetic North and True North” (page E-31).
Calibrating the Bearing Sensor
You should calibrate the bearing sensor whenever you feel that the direction readings being produced by
the watch are off. You can use any one of two different bearing sensor calibration methods: bidirectional
calibration or magnetic declination correction.
• Bidirectional Calibration
Bidirectional calibration calibrates the bearing sensor in relation to magnetic north. Use bidirectional
calibration when you want to take readings within an area exposed to magnetic force. This type of
calibration should be used if the watch becomes magnetized for any reason.
Important!
• To ensure correct direction readings by the digital compass, be sure to perform bidirectional calibration
before using it. The digital compass may produce incorrect direction readings if you do not perform
bidirectional calibration.
E-23
Operation Guide 5415
• Magnetic Declination Correction
With magnetic declination correction, you select a declination angle direction and input a magnetic
declination angle (difference between magnetic north and true north), which allows the watch to indicate
true north. You can perform this procedure when the magnetic declination angle is indicated on the map
you are using.
Precautions about bidirectional calibration
• You can use any two opposing directions for bidirectional calibration. You must, however, make sure
that they are 180 degrees opposite each other. Remember that if you perform the procedure
incorrectly, you will get wrong bearing sensor readings.
• Do not move the watch while calibration of either direction is in progress.
• You should perform bidirectional calibration in an environment that is the same as that where you plan
to be taking direction readings. If you plan to take direction readings in an open field, for example,
calibrate in an open field.
To perform bidirectional calibration
1. In the Digital Compass Mode, hold down A.
• The second hand will move to 12 o’clock, indicating the
bidirectional calibration mode.
• At this time the lower display will show an upward pointing arrow
( ) and the upper display will show -1-. These indicate that the
watch is ready for calibration of the first direction.
2. Place the watch on a level surface facing any direction you want, and press C.
• This will start calibration of the first direction.
• --- will be shown in the upper display while first direction calibration is in progress. When
calibration is successful, OK will appear in the lower display for a short while, and then change
to . The upper display will show -2-. These indicate that the watch is ready for calibration of the
second direction.
3. Rotate the watch 180 degrees.
4. Press C again.
• This will start calibration of the second direction.
• --- will be displayed in the upper display while calibration is in progress.
• After calibration is successful, the lower display will show OK and then the watch will start a digital
compass operation.
• ERR will appear on the lower display for a short while if an error occurs. After that, the screen will
automatically return to the first direction calibration screen (the one that appears after A is held
down in step 1).

• Note that you can input the declination angle in whole degree units only, so you may need to round
off the value specified on the map. If your map indicates the declination angle as 7.4°, you should
input 7°. In the case of 7.6° input 8°, for 7.5° you can input 7° or 8°.
• Holding down B or E will scroll the setting at high speed.
• You can turn off (OFF, 0°) magnetic declination correction by pressing B and E at the same
time.
• The illustration, for example, shows the value you should input and the direction setting you should
select when the map shows a magnetic declination of 1° West.

2. During the 20 seconds that digital compass readings are being taken,
press E to store the current reading in Bearing Memory.
• The watch will display the stored reading and start a digital
compass operation that lasts for about 20 seconds. The stored
bearing will be indicated in the digital meter during this time.
• Pressing E will delete the current Bearing Memory contents (which
causes the bearing indication to disappear from the digital meter),
and start a new 20-second digital compass operation.
E-28
• To position yourself to move in the direction of the recorded bearing, move around until the Bearing
Memory Pointer points straight ahead of you, as shown above.
Example: Advancing to an objective while monitoring your bearing
Even if you lose sight of your objective, you can use a map to store the required bearing in bearing
memory and refer to the memorized information to advance to your objective.
1. Set the map.
• For information about how to set a map, see “Positioning a map in accordance with actual
surroundings (setting a map)” below.
2. Place the watch on the map at your current location, and point 12 o’clock at your desired objective on
the map.
3. Press E to store the direction to your objective in bearing memory. Now you can advance towards
your objective while observing the stored direction on the watch display.
Important!
• As you progress, the direction to your bearing will change, so you need to keep updating the
information in bearing memory.
Positioning a map in accordance with actual surroundings (setting a map)
You can align a map with the northerly direction indicated by the watch, and then compare what is shown
on the map with your actual surroundings. This is helpful for checking your current location and the
location of your objective. This process is called “setting a map”.
• When setting a map, be sure to align the watch with true north. See “Magnetic North and True North”
(page E-31) and “Magnetic Declination Correction” (page E-24).

Digital Compass Precautions
Magnetic North and True North
The northerly direction can be expressed either as magnetic north or true
True north
north, which are different from each other. Also, it is important to keep in mind
Magnetic north
that magnetic north moves over time.
• Magnetic north is the north that is indicated by the needle of a compass.
• True north, which is the location of the North Pole of the Earth’s axis, is the
north that is normally indicated on maps.
• The difference between magnetic north and true north is called the
“declination”. The closer you get to the North Pole, the greater the
Earth
declination angle.
Location
• Taking a direction reading when you are near a source of strong magnetism can cause large errors in
readings. Because of this, you should avoid taking direction readings while in the vicinity of the
following types of objects: permanent magnets (magnetic necklaces, etc.), concentrations of metal
(metal doors, lockers, etc.), high tension wires, aerial wires, household appliances (TVs, personal
computers, washing machines, freezers, etc.)
• Accurate readings are also impossible indoors, especially inside ferroconcrete structures. This is
because the metal framework of such structures picks up magnetism from appliances, etc.
• Accurate direction readings are impossible while in a train, boat, air plane, etc.
E-31
Operation Guide 5415
Storage
• The precision of the bearing sensor may deteriorate if the watch becomes magnetized. Because of
this, you should store the watch away from magnets or any other sources of strong magnetism,
including: permanent magnets (magnetic necklaces, etc.), concentrations of metal (metal doors,
lockers, etc.), and household appliances (TVs, personal computers, washing machines, freezers, etc.)
• Whenever you suspect that the watch may have become magnetized, perform the procedure under “To
perform bidirectional calibration” (page E-24).
Taking Temperature Readings
This watch uses a temperature sensor to measure temperature.
To take temperature readings
While in the Timekeeping Mode, press E.
• TEMP will appear in the lower display and temperature measurement
will start. After about one second, the measurement reading will
appear in the upper display.
• The watch will continue to take temperature readings every five
seconds for about two minutes.
• The watch will return to the Timekeeping Mode after the reading
operation is complete (about two minutes).
• Pressing E while a reading operation is in progress will stop the
operation and enter the Timekeeping Mode.
Temperature
Temperature
• Temperature is displayed in units of 0.1°C (or 0.2°F).
• The displayed temperature value changes to - - - °C (or °F) if a measured temperature falls outside the
range of –10.0°C to 60.0°C (14.0°F to 140.0°F). The temperature value will reappear as soon as the
measured temperature is within the allowable range.
E-32
E-33
Display Units
You can select either Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit (°F) for the displayed temperature value. See “To specify
the temperature unit” (page E-36).
To calibrate the temperature sensor
1. Take a reading with another measurement device to determine the
exact current temperature.
2. With the watch in the Timekeeping Mode, press E to enter the
Thermometer Mode.
Temperature Sensor Calibration
The temperature sensor built into the watch is calibrated at the factory and normally requires no further
adjustment. If you notice serious errors in the temperature readings produced by the watch, you can
calibrate the sensor to correct the errors.
Important!
• Incorrectly calibrating the temperature sensor can result in incorrect readings.
Carefully read the following before doing anything.
– Compare the readings produced by the watch with those of another reliable and accurate thermometer.
– If adjustment is required, remove the watch from your wrist and wait for 20 or 30 minutes to give the
temperature of the watch time to stabilize.
3. Hold down A for about two seconds until the temperature reading
disappears from the bottom display. Release A at this time, which will
cause the temperature reading to flash, which indicates the setting
mode.
4. Use E (+) and B (−) to calibrate the temperature value with the reading of another instrument.
• Each press of a button changes the temperature value in units of 0.1°C (0.2°F).
• To return the temperature to its uncalibrated value (OFF setting), press E and B at the same

Illumination Precautions
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
E-48
E-49
Auto light switch precautions
• Illumination may not turn on if the face of the watch is more than 15 degrees above
or below parallel. Make sure that the back of your hand is parallel to the ground.
• Illumination turns off after the preset illumination duration (page E-47), even if you
keep the watch pointed towards your face.
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with proper operation of the auto
light switch. If illumination does not turn on, try moving the watch back to the
starting position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it back towards your face
again. If this does not work, drop your arm all the way down so it hangs at your
side, and then bring it back up again.
• You may notice a very faint clicking sound coming from the watch when it is shaken
back and forth. This sound is caused by mechanical operation of the auto light
switch, and does not indicate a problem with the watch.
Button Operation Tone
When enabled, the button operation tone sounds any time you press one of the watch’s buttons. You can
enable or disable the button operation tone as desired.
• Even if you disable the button operation tone, the alarm, Hourly Time Signal, and Countdown Timer
Mode alarm all operate normally.

Low Battery Indication
Troubleshooting
A low battery indicator appears on the display when battery power is low. Have the batteries replaced as
soon as possible.
Time Setting
■ The current time setting is off by a couple of hours.
Your Home City setting may be wrong (page E-13). Check your Home City setting and correct it, if
necessary.
Note
• For information about battery life guidelines and supported battery types, see the product
specifications.
■ The current time setting is off by one hour.
You may need to change your Home City’s standard time/daylight saving time (DST) setting. Use the
procedure under “To change the current time and date settings” (page E-15) to change the standard time/
daylight saving time (DST) setting.
See “Specifications” (page E-57).
The conditions below are in effect while the low battery indicator is flashing.
• All hands are stopped.
• Except for the low battery indicator, all other display functions are
disabled.
• Watch tones are disabled.
• Display illumination is disabled.
• Watch operations are disabled.
World Time Mode
■ The time for my World Time City is off in the World Time Mode.
This could be due to incorrect switching between standard time and daylight saving time.
See “To configure World Time City and summer time settings” (page E-38) for more information.
Low battery indicator
Note
• Sequentially or repeatedly performing sensor, light, alarm, and other power intensive operations
over a short period can cause a sudden drop in battery power, which will make the low battery
indicator flash. Even though the low battery indicator may disappear and watch functions may
become re-enabled, battery replacement is recommended.

E-53
Batteries
■ The low battery indicator is flashing on the digital display.
The watch’s battery power is low. Have the batteries replaced as soon as
possible.
Bearing and Temperature Readings
■ The temperature unit setting won’t change.
The temperature unit setting is always Celsius (°C) whenever TOKYO is selected as the Home City. In
this case, the setting cannot be changed.
See “Low Battery Indication” (page E-52).
■ “ERR” appears while a sensor operation is in progress.
Subjecting the watch to strong impact can cause sensor malfunction or improper contact of internal
circuitry. When this happens, ERR (error) will appear on the lower display and sensor operations will be
disabled.

Measurement
• If ERR appears while a measurement operation is being performed in a sensor mode, restart the
measurement. If ERR appears on the lower display again, it can mean there is something wrong with
the sensor.
• If ERR keeps appearing during measurement, it could mean there is a problem with the applicable
sensor.

E-55
Operation Guide 5415
■ “ERR” appears on the lower display following bidirectional calibration.
If - - - appears and then changes to ERR (error) on the calibration screen, it means that there is something
wrong with the sensor.
• If ERR disappears after about one second, try performing the calibration again.
• If ERR keeps appearing, contact your original dealer or nearest authorized CASIO distributor to have
the watch checked.
Whenever you have a sensor malfunction, take the watch to your original dealer or nearest authorized
CASIO distributor as soon as possible.
■ Incorrect direction readings.
• Incorrect bidirectional calibration. Perform bidirectional calibration (page E-24).
• Nearby source of strong magnetism, such as a household appliance, a large steel bridge, a steel
beam, overhead wires, etc., or an attempt to perform direction measurement on a train, boat, etc. Move
away from large metal objects and try again.
■ Different results produced by direction readings taken at the same location.
Magnetism generated by nearby high-tension wires is interfering with detection of terrestrial magnetism.
Move away from the high-tension wires and try again.
■ Problems taking direction readings indoors.
A TV, personal computer, speakers, or some other object is interfering with terrestrial magnetism
readings. Move away from the object causing the interference or take the direction reading outdoors.
Indoor direction readings are particularly difficult inside ferro-concrete structures.
Remember that you will not be able to take direction readings inside of trains, airplanes, etc.
