Care should also be taken on diving into water. ** We recommend that you wear a PULSAR Diver’s Watch for scuba diving. TEMPERATURES Your watch works +50°C with stable accuracy within a temperature -5°C range of 5° C and 35° C (41° F and 95° F). Temperatures over 50° C (122° F) or below –5° C (+23° F) may cause a slight time loss or gain or battery leakage or shorten the battery life. However, the above conditions will be corrected when the watch returns to normal temperature. 18 MAGNETISM Your watch will not be affected by magnetism.
