About the backlight
In any mode, press C to illuminate 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.
• If the alarm time you set in the Alarm Mode is reached while the backlight is turned
on, the alarm tone will not start to sound until the backlight turns off.
