Getting Acquainted
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out
of your purchase, be sure to read this manual carefully and keep it on hand
for later reference when necessary.
Applications
The built-in sensors of this watch measure direction, barometric pressure,
temperature and altitude. Measured values are then shown on the display.
Such features make this watch useful when hiking, mountain climbing, or
when engaging in other such outdoor activities.
Keep the watch exposed to bright light
The electricity generated by the solar cell of the
watch is stored by a built-in battery. Leaving or
using the watch where it is not exposed to light
causes the battery to run down. Make sure the
watch is exposed to light as much as possible.
• When you are not wearing the watch on your
wrist, position the face so it is pointed at a
source of bright light.
• You should try to keep the watch outside of
your sleeve as much as possible. Even if the
face of the watch is only partially blocked from
light, charging will be reduced significantly.

• The watch continues to operate, even when it is not exposed to light.
Leaving the watch in the dark can cause the battery to run down, which will
cause some watch functions to be disabled. If the battery goes dead, you
will have to re-configure watch settings after recharging. To ensure normal
watch operation, be sure to keep it exposed to light as much as possible.
Battery charges in the light.
• Frequent display illumination can run down the battery quickly and require
charging. The following guidelines give an idea of the charging time
required to recover from a single illumination operation.
Approximately 5 minutes exposure to bright sunlight coming in through a
window
Approximately 50 minutes exposure to indoor fluorescent lighting
• Be sure to read “Power Supply” for important information you need to
know when exposing the watch to bright light.
If the display of the watch is blank...
If the display of the watch is blank, it means that the watch’s Power Saving
function has turned off the display to conserve power.
• See “Power Saving” for more information.
Warning!
• The measurement functions built into this watch are not intended for
taking measurements that require professional or industrial precision.
Values produced by this watch should be considered as reasonable
representations only.
• When engaging in mountain climbing or other activities in which losing
your way can create a dangerous or life-threatening situation, always be
sure to use a second compass to confirm direction readings.
• CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. assumes no responsibility for any loss,
or any claims by third parties that may arise through the use of this

Operation Guide 2894
• In some areas, barometric pressure is expressed in millibars (mb) instead
of hectopascals (hPa). It really makes no difference, because 1hPa = 1mb.
• You can select either hectopascals (hPa) or inchesHg (inHg) as the display
unit for the measured barometric pressure, and Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit
(°F) as the display unit for the measured temperature value. See “To select
the temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude units”.
• See “Barometer and Thermometer Precautions” for important precautions.
Barometric Pressure Graph
Barometric pressure indicates changes in the atmosphere. By monitoring
these changes you can predict the weather with reasonable accuracy.
This watch takes barometric pressure measurements automatically every two
hours (at the top of each even-numbered hour), regardless of its current
mode. Measurement results are used to produce barometric pressure graph
and barometric pressure differential pointer readings.
The barometric pressure graph shows readings of previous measurements for
up to 30 hours. The horizontal axis of the graph represents time, with each dot
standing for two hours. The rightmost dot (flashing) represents the most
recent reading. The vertical axis of the graph represents barometric pressure,
with each dot standing for the relative difference between its reading and that
of the dots next to it. Each dot represents 1hPa.
The following shows how to interpret the data that appears on the barometric
pressure graph.
A rising graph generally means improving weather.
A falling graph generally means deteriorating weather.
Note that if there are sudden changes in weather or
temperature, the graph line of past measurements may run
off the top or bottom of the display. The entire graph will
become visible once barometric conditions stabilize.
Not visible on
The following conditions cause the barometric pressure
measurement to be skipped, with the corresponding point on the display.

Barometric Pressure Differential Pointer
This pointer indicates the relative difference between the most recent
barometric pressure reading indicated on the barometric pressure graph, and
the current barometric pressure value displayed in the Barometer/
Thermometer Mode
• Pressure differential is indicated in the range of ±15 hPa, in 1-hPa units.
• The barometric pressure differential pointer is not displayed when the
displayed current barometric value is outside of the allowable measurement
range (260 to 1,100 hPa).
• Barometric pressure is calculated and displayed using hPa as the standard.
The barometric pressure differential can also be read in inHg units as
shown in the illustration.

About Barometric and Temperature Measurements
• Barometric pressure and temperature measurement operations are
performed as soon as you enter the Barometer/Thermometer Mode. After
that, barometric pressure and temperature measurements are taken every
five seconds.
• The ACT indicator flashes on the display while a measurement is in
progress.
• You can also perform a barometric pressure and temperature measurement
at any time by pressing B in the Barometer/Thermometer Mode.
Altimeter
The watch's altimeter uses a pressure sensor to detect current air pressure,
which is then used to estimate the current altitude based on ISA (International
Standard Atmosphere) preset values. You can also specify a reference
altitude, which the watch will use to calculate your current altitude based on
the value you specify. Altimeter functions also include storage of
measurement data in memory and an altitude alarm.
Important!
• This watch estimates altitude based on air pressure. This means that
altitude readings for the same location may vary if air pressure changes.
• The semiconductor pressure sensor used by the watch for altitude
measurements is also affected by temperature. When taking altitude
measurements, make sure the watch is not subjected to temperature
changes.
• To avoid the effect of sudden temperature changes during measurement,
keep the watch on your wrist in direct contact with your skin.
• Do not rely upon this watch for altitude measurements or perform button
operations while sky diving, hang gliding, or paragliding, while riding a
gyrocopter, glider, or any other aircraft, or while engaging in any other
activity where there is the chance of sudden altitude changes.
• Do not use this watch for measuring altitude in applications that demand
professional or industrial level precision.
• Remember that the air inside of a commercial aircraft is pressurized.
Because of this, the readings produced by this watch will not match the
altitude readings announced or indicated the flight crew.
How the Altimeter Measures Altitude
The altimeter can measure altitude based on its own preset values, or a
reference altitude specified by you.
When you measure altitude based on preset values
Data produced by the watch's barometric pressure sensor is converted to
approximate altitude based on ISA (International Standard Atmosphere)
conversion values stored in watch memory.
When you measure altitude using a reference altitude specified by you
After you specify a reference altitude, the watch uses that value to convert the
current measured barometric pressure value to altitude.
• To determine the height of a tall building, for
example, specify zero for the reference
altitude value while you are on the ground
floor. Then when you go to a higher floor, the
altitude displayed by the watch will indicate
the height from the ground floor. Note that
you may not be able to get a good reading if
the building is pressurized or air-conditioned.
• When mountain climbing, you can set the
B
reference value in accordance with a marker
along the way or altitude information from a
A
map. After that, the altitude readings
400
produced by the watch will be more accurate
than they would without a reference altitude.
Displaying Your Current Altitude
You can use the procedure described in this section to display your current
altitude. If you leave the watch in the Altimeter Mode, it will regularly update
the displayed altitude value, and indicate reading-to-reading changes in the
altitude graph at the top of the display.
Important!
• The procedure in this section simply displays values indicating your current
altitude, without storing them in watch memory. For information about
recording altitude readings in watch memory, see “Saving Altitude Data”.

Operation Guide 2894
About the Auto Light Switch
Turning on the auto light switch causes illumination to turn on, whenever you
position your wrist as described below in any mode.
Note that this watch features a “Full Auto EL Light”, so the auto light switch
operates only when available light is below a certain level. It does not
illuminate the display under bright light.
Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting
it towards you more than 40 degrees causes illumination to turn on.
• Wear the watch on the outside of your wrist.

40°
Question: How does the barometer work?
Answer: Barometric pressure indicates changes in the atmosphere, and by
monitoring these changes you can predict the weather with
reasonable accuracy. Rising atmospheric pressure indicates good
weather, while falling pressure indicates deteriorating weather
conditions.
The barometric pressures that you see in the newspaper and on the
TV weather report are measurements corrected to values measured
at 0 m sea level.
Question: How does the altimeter work?
Answer: Generally, air pressure and temperature decrease as altitude
increases. This watch bases its altitude measurements on
International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) values stipulated by the
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). These values define
relationships between altitude, air pressure, and temperature.
Altitude
Warning!
• Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading
the display of the watch using the auto light switch. Be especially
careful when running or engaged in any other activity that can result
in accident or injury. Also take care that sudden illumination by the
auto light switch does not startle or distract others around you.
• When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light switch
is turned off before riding on a bicycle or operating a motorcycle or
any other motor vehicle. Sudden and unintended operation of the auto
light switch can create a distraction, which can result in a traffic
accident and serious personal injury.
To turn the auto light switch on and off
In any mode except while a setting is flashing on the display, hold down L for
about three seconds to toggle the auto light switch on (A.EL displayed) and
off (A.EL not displayed).
• The auto light switch on indicator (A.EL) is on the display in all modes while
the auto light switch is turned on.
• The auto light switch turns off automatically whenever battery power drops
to Level 4.
• Illumination may not turn on right away if you raise the watch to your face
while a barometric pressure or altitude measurement operation is in
progress.
• The auto light switch is always disabled, regardless of its on/off setting,
when any one of the following conditions exists.

Questions & Answers
Question: What causes incorrect direction readings?
Answer:
• Incorrect bidirectional calibration. Perform bidirectional calibration.
• 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. Note that digital compass operation cannot be
performed inside a train, boat, etc.
Question: What causes different direction readings to produce different
results at the same location ?
Answer: Magnetism generated by nearby high-tension wires is interfering with
detection of terrestrial magnetism. Move away from the high-tension
wires and try again.

When air pressure changes because of changes in the weather
Extreme temperature changes
When the watch itself is subjected to strong impact
There are two standard methods of expressing altitude: Absolute altitude and
relative altitude. Absolute altitude expresses an absolute height above sea
level. Relative altitude expresses the difference between the height of two
different places.
To specify the illumination duration
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down E until
the city code starts to flash, which indicates
the setting screen.
2. Press D three times to move the flashing to
the seconds setting.
3. Press A to toggle the illumination duration
setting between 2.5 seconds ( ) and 1.5
seconds ( ).
4. After the setting is the way you want, press E
to exit the setting screen.

Precautions Concerning Simultaneous Measurement of Altitude and
Temperature
Though you can perform altitude and temperature measurements at the same
time, you should remember that each of these measurements requires
different conditions for best results. With temperature measurement, it is best
to remove the watch from your wrist in order to eliminate the effects of body
heat. In the case of altitude measurement, on the other hand, it is better to
leave the watch on your wrist, because doing so keeps the watch at a
constant temperature, which contributes to more accurate altitude
measurements.
The following describes what you should do to give priority to either altitude or
temperature.
• To give altitude measurement priority, leave the watch on your wrist or in
any other location where the temperature of the watch is kept constant.
• To give temperature measurement priority, remove the watch from your
wrist and allow it to hang freely from your bag or in another location where
it is not exposed to direct sunlight. Note that removing the watch from your
wrist can momentarily affect pressure sensor readings.
Question: Why am I having problems taking direction readings indoors ?
Answer: 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.

Power Supply
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a special rechargeable battery
(secondary battery) that is charged by the electrical power produced by the
solar cell. The illustration shown below shows how you should position the
watch for charging.
Example: Orient the watch so its face is
pointing at a light source.
• The illustration shows how to position a
watch with a resin band.
• Note that charging efficiency drops when
any part of the solar cell is blocked by
clothing, etc.
• You should try to keep the watch outside
of your sleeve as much as possible. Even
if the face of the watch is only partially
blocked from light, charging will be
significantly reduced.
Solar cell
Charging Guide
• Storing the watch for long periods in an area where there is no light or
wearing it in such a way that it is blocked from exposure to light can cause
rechargeable battery power to run down. Be sure that the watch is normally
exposed to bright light whenever possible.
• This watch uses a special rechargeable battery to store power produced by
the solar cell, so regular battery replacement is not required. However, after
very long use, the rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full
charge. If you experience problems getting the special rechargeable battery
to fully charge, contact your dealer or CASIO distributor about having it
replaced.
• Never try to remove or replace the watch’s special battery yourself. Use of
the wrong type of battery can damage the watch.
• All data stored in memory is deleted, and the current time and all other
settings return to their initial factory defaults whenever battery power drops
to Level 5 and when you have the battery replaced.
• Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function and keep it in an area normally
exposed to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to keep
the rechargeable battery from going dead.

after falling to Level 4, reconfigure the current time, date, and other
settings.
• Display indicators reappear as soon as the battery is charged from Level 4
to Level 2.
• Leaving the watch exposed to direct sunlight or some other very strong light
source can cause the battery power indicator to show a reading temporarily
that is higher than the actual battery level. The correct battery level should
be indicated after a few minutes.
• Performing multiple sensor, illumination, or
beeper operations during a short period may
cause RECOV to appear on the display.
Illumination, alarm, countdown timer alarm,
hourly time signal, and sensor operations will
be disabled until battery power recovers.
After some time, battery power will recover and
RECOV will disappear, indicating that the
above functions are enabled again.

• The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping
Mode is applied in all modes.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar makes allowances for different
month lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there should be no
reason to change it except when battery power drops to Level 4.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time
Mode is calculated in accordance with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
differential for each city, based on your Home City time setting.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time
Coordinated (UTC) data.
Illumination Precautions
• If ERR appears while a measurement operation is being performed in a
sensor mode, restart the measurement. If ERR appears on the display
again, it can mean there is something wrong with the sensor.
• Even if battery power is at Level 1 or Level 2, the Digital Compass Mode,
Barometer/Thermometer Mode, or Altimeter Mode sensor may be disabled
if there is not enough voltage available to power it sufficiently. In this case,
ERR will appear on the display. This does not indicate malfunction, and
sensor operation should resume once battery voltage returns to its normal
level.
• If ERR keeps appearing during measurement, it could mean there is a
problem with the applicable sensor.
Whenever you have a sensor malfunction, be sure to take the watch to
your original dealer or nearest authorized CASIO distributor as soon as
possible.

Auto light switch precautions
• Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist, movement of your arm, or
vibration of your arm can cause frequent activation of the auto light switch
and illumination of the display. To avoid running down the battery, turn off
the auto light switch whenever engaging in activities that might cause
frequent illumination of the display.
• Note that wearing the watch under your sleeve while the auto light switch is
turned on can cause frequent illumination of the display and can run down
the battery.

• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after
very long use.
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated.
This is due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not
indicate malfunction.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down E until
the city code starts to flash, which indicates
the setting screen.
2. Press D nine times until the Power Saving
on/off screen appears.
3. Press C to toggle Power Saving on (ON) and
off (OFF).
4. Press E to exit the setting screen.
• The Power Saving on indicator (PS) is on the
display in all modes while Power Saving is
turned on.
Timekeeping
• Resetting the seconds to 00 while the current count is in the range of 30 to
59 causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the
seconds are reset to 00 without changing the minutes.
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears on the display for
times in the range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and no indicator appears for times
in the range of midnight to 11:59 a.m.
• With the 24-hour format, times are displayed in the range of 0:00 to 23:59,
without any indicator.
• 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 (see “To specify the
illumination duration”), 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.
• Under certain conditions, illumination does not turn on until about one
second after you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not
necessarily indicate malfunction.
• 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.
Digital Compass Precautions
This watch features a built-in magnetic bearing sensor that detects terrestrial
magnetism. This means that north indicated by this watch is magnetic north,
which is somewhat different from true polar north. The magnetic north pole is
located in northern Canada, while the magnetic south pole is in southern
Australia. Note that the difference between magnetic north and true north as
measured with all magnetic compasses tends to be greater as one gets
closer to either of the magnetic poles. You should also remember that some
maps indicate true north (instead of magnetic north), and so you should make
allowances when using such maps with this watch.
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 direction readings are impossible while in a train, boat, air plane,
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.
Storage
• The precision of the bearing sensor may deteriorate if the watch becomes
magnetized. Because of this, you should be sure to store the watch away
from magnets or any other sources of strong magnetism, including:
permanent magnets (magnetic necklaces, etc.) and household appliances
(TVs, personal computers, washing machines, freezers, etc.)
• Whenever you suspect that the watch may have become magnetized,
perform one of the calibration procedures under “Calibrating the Bearing
Sensor”.

Operation Guide 2894
Calibrating the Bearing Sensor
Whenever you suspect that direction readings produced by the watch are
wrong, you should calibrate it. You can use either one of two calibration
procedures: bidirectional calibration or northerly calibration.
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.
With northerly calibration, you “teach” the watch which way is north (which
you have to determine with another compass or some other means). You
could use this calibration procedure, for example, to set the watch to indicate
true north instead of magnetic north.
Important!
• If you want to perform both bidirectional and northerly calibration, be sure
to perform bidirectional calibration first, and then perform northerly
calibration. This is necessary because bidirectional calibration cancels any
previously set northerly calibration setting.
• The more correctly you perform bidirectional calibration, the better the
accuracy of the bearing sensor readouts. You should perform bidirectional
calibration whenever you change environments where you use the bearing
sensor, and whenever you feel that the bearing sensor is producing
incorrect readings.
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.
• Make sure that you 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.
Barometer and Thermometer Precautions
• The pressure sensor built into this watch measures changes in air
pressure, which you can then apply to your own weather predictions. It is
not intended for use as a precision instrument in official weather prediction
or reporting applications.
• Sudden temperature changes can affect pressure sensor readings.
• Temperature measurements are affected by your body temperature (while
you are wearing the watch), direct sunlight, and moisture. To achieve a
more accurate temperature measurement, remove the watch from your
wrist, place it in a well ventilated location out of direct sunlight, and wipe all
moisture from the case. It takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes for the
case of the watch to reach the actual surrounding temperature.
Pressure Sensor and Temperature Sensor Calibration
The pressure sensor and temperature sensor built into the watch are
calibrated at the factory and normally require 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 barometric pressure sensor can result in incorrect
readings. Before performing the calibration procedure, compare the
readings produced by the watch with those of another reliable and accurate
barometer.
• 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.
