Calibrating the Temperature Measurement
The temperature sensor of this watch is calibrated at the factory before shipment and
further adjustment is normally not required. If noticeable error is found in the
temperature readings produced by the watch, you can adjust it to correct the error.
Important
Incorrectly calibrating the temperature measurement of this watch can result in
incorrect readings. Carefully read the following before doing anything.
• Compare the readings produced by the watch with those of another reliable,
accurate thermometer.
• If calibration 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.
• Perform the temperature calibration before procedure as quickly as possible to avoid
the temperature of the watch being affected by your body temperature.
• You can also perform temperature calibration underwater, if the water temperature is
stable.
To calibrate the temperature
1. Hold down
while in the Current Temperature
Display and the current temperature digits flash.
2. Each press of
increase the displayed
temperature by 0.1˚C, and pressing the
decrease it by 0.1˚C.
• If you have selected Fahrenheit as your unit of
measurement, the above operations change the
reading by 0.2˚F.
• You can calibrate the temperature within a range
of –9.9˚C to +9.9˚C (–18.0˚F to +18.0˚F).
• Press
and
at the same time to reset the
temperature calibration to the factory setting.
3. After calibrating the temperature, press
to
return to the Current Temperature Display.
• If you do not operate any button for a few minutes
while a selection is flashing, the flashing stops and
the watch goes back to the Current Temperature
Display automatically.
Current Temperature Display
A built-in temperature sensor measures temperature and shows the measured value
on the display. The readout from the temperature sensor can also be switched
between Celsius (˚C) and Fahrenheit (˚F). The thermometer can be calibrated to
correct for errors.
Important
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 off all moisture from the case. It
takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes for the case of the watch to reach the actual
surrounding temperature.

Accurate temperature measurements cannot be achieved while you are wearing the
watch. The following graph illustrated affects of body temperature on actual

• Pressing
(Timekeeping Mode, Temperature Data Recall Mode, Alarm Mode) or
(Countdown Alarm Mode, Stopwatch Mode) illuminates the display for about two
seconds.
• The backlight of the watch employs an electro-luminescent (EL) light, which loses
illuminating power after very long use.
• The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under
direct sunlight.
• The watch will emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is
caused by a transformer that vibrates when the EL panel lights up. It does not
indicate malfunction of the watch.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
About Temperature Measurement
Current • A temperature measurement operation is
Temperature

temperature
graph
display to temperature display.
COUNTDOWN ALARM MODE
• Temperature measurements are performed and
the temperature value is updated every two
minutes while the current temperature is
displayed.
• Pressing
while the current temperature is
displayed executes a temperature measurement
operation and stores the result in memory along
with the time of the measurement.
• At the top of each hour, the current temperature
is measured and stored in memory along with
the time of the measurement.
The display shows “– – . – ˚C (or ˚F)” if a measured value falls outside the range of
–20˚C to 60˚C (–4˚F to 140˚F). The normal display will return as soon as the
temperature returns within the allowable range.
• Memory can hold up to 100 temperature data entries, which are managed on a firstin, first-out basis. See “TEMPERATURE DATA RECALL MODE” of this manual for
details on how to recall memory data.
• The first data item is stored as data item 1, the second as data item 2, and so on up
to 100 data items.
• When a new data item is stored while there are already 100 data items (numbered 1
to 100) in memory, the new data item is “pushed” into memory from the top (on top of
item 100). This shifts all of the previous data items down one position (item 100
becomes item 99, 99 becomes 98, and so on), and item 1 is deleted.
