Note
• The backlight of the watch employs an electroluminescent (EL) light, which
loses illuminating power after very long use.
• Frequent use of the backlight shortens the battery life.
• 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. It
does not indicate malfunction of the watch.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
To manually turn on the backlight
• Pressing B in any mode besides the Countdown Alarm Mode or
Stopwatch Mode illuminates the display for about 1.5 second. The backlight
is disabled while a setting screen is on the display.
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with proper operation of the
auto backlight function. If the auto backlight does not illuminate, try moving
the watch back to the starting position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt
it back towards you 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 the backlight may not light until about one second
or less after turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not
necessarily indicate malfunction of the backlight.
Warning!
• Never try to read your watch when mountain climbing or hiking in
areas that are dark or in areas with poor footing. Doing so is
dangerous and can result in serious personal injury.
• Never try to read your watch when running where there is the danger
of accidents, especially in locations where there might be vehicular or
pedestrian traffic. Doing so is dangerous and can result in serious
personal injury.
• Never try to read your watch when riding on a bicycle or when
operating a motorcycle or any other motor vehicle. Doing so is
dangerous and can result in a traffic accident and serious personal
injury.
• When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto backlight
function is turned off before riding on a bicycle or operating a
motorcycle or any other motor vehicle. Sudden and unintended
operation of the auto backlight can create a distraction, which can
result in a traffic accident and serious personal injury.

• The auto backlight indicator is shown on the display in all modes while the
auto backlight function is on.
• In order to protect against running down the battery, the auto backlight
function is automatically turned off approximately six hours after you turn it
on. Repeat the above procedure to turn the auto backlight function back on
if you want.
• Pressing B in any mode besides the Countdown Alarm Mode or
Stopwatch Mode illuminates the display for about 1.5 second, regardless of
the auto backlight function on/off setting.
About the Auto Backlight function
While the Auto Backlight function is turned on, the backlight automatically
lights for about 1.5 second in any mode whenever you position your wrist as
described below.
Important!
Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. Doing so causes the Auto
Backlight to operate when it is not needed, which shortens battery life.
Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting
it towards you more than 40 degrees causes the backlight to illuminate.
Example barometer applications
• Before going mountain climbing, you can take readings to predict upcoming
weather.
• You can predict the weather for golf or other outdoor activities.
About barometric pressure measurements
The watch takes barometric pressure measurements every five seconds for
the first two minutes after you enter the Barometer Mode. The Barometer
Mode indicator 1 flashes on the display during these two minutes.
After the first two minutes, the Barometer Mode indicator 1 stops flashing, and
the watch automatically takes measurements every two hours (starting from
midnight).
The watch continues to take barometric pressure readings every two hours,
even if you change to another mode. Measurement data can be viewed on the
Timekeeping Mode screen on the barometric pressure graph.

4. After calibrating the barometric pressure, press A to return to the
Barometer Mode screen.
Important !
• This watch estimates altitude based on barometric pressure. This means
that altitude readings for the same location may vary if barometric pressure
changes.
• Sudden changes in the weather make it impossible to produce accurate
altitude readings.
• This watch employs a semiconductor pressure sensor, which is affected by
temperature changes. When taking altitude measurements, be sure to do
so while ensuring that the watch is not exposed to temperature changes.
• Do not use this watch while participating in sports where there are sudden
altitude changes. Also, do not use this watch for applications that demand
professional or industrial level precision. This watch should not be used
while engaging in the following activities: skydiving, hang gliding,
paragliding, gyrocopter riding, glider riding, etc.
Applications
When no reference altitude is preset:
• The watch produces approximate altitude readings.
When a reference altitude is preset:
• Before beginning the climb, set the reference altitude to 0 meter at the foot
of the mountain. This makes it possible to determine the difference in
altitude between the reference point and your destination.
• To determine the height of a tall building, set the reference altitude to 0
meter on the ground floor. Note that you
may not be able to get a good reading if
the building is pressurized or airconditioned.
• To determine the difference in altitude
between your house and another location, set the reference altitude to 0
meter at your house, and then check the reading when you arrive at the
other location.
• When mountain climbing, you can input
the altitude from a marker as your
reference altitude, which will then let you
know your altitude as your climb
proceeds. The following conditions will
400
prevent you from obtaining accurate
readings:
When barometric pressure changes because of changes in the weather
Extreme temperature changes
When the watch itself is subjected to strong impact
About altitude measurements
The watch measures altitude every five seconds for the first two minutes after
you enter the Altimeter Mode. The Altimeter Mode indicator 1 flashes on the
display during these two minutes.
After the first two minutes, the Altimeter Mode indicator 1 stops flashing, and
the watch automatically takes measurements every two minutes (on even
numbered minutes).
The display unit for Altimeter Mode measurements is 5 meters (20 feet), and
the display range is 0 to 6,000 meters (0 to 19,680 feet).
• The measured altitude may be a negative value in cases where there is a
reference altitude value set or because of certain barometric pressure
conditions.

THERMOMETER MODE
A built-in temperature sensor measures temperature and shows the measured
value on the display. 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 temperature of the surrounding air.
About temperature measurements
The watch takes temperature measurements every five seconds for the first
two minutes after you enter the Thermometer Mode. The Thermometer Mode
indicator 1 flashes on the display during these two minutes.
After the first two minutes, the Thermometer Mode indicator 1 stops flashing,
and the watch automatically takes measurements every five minutes.
Understanding the temperature display

WARNING INDICATORS
This watch displays warning indicators to let you know when the sensor is
malfunctioning and when battery power is low.
Err Display – Sensor Malfunction Warning
This message indicates malfunction of the watch’s pressure sensor circuitry.
When sensor malfunction initially occurs, the watch stops taking
measurements, the “Err” message appears, and a buzzer sounds for about
three seconds.
• If the sensor is malfunctioning when it comes time for a barometric pressure
measurement to be taken, the barometric pressure value and altitude value
appears as “– – – –” on the display and the corresponding point on the
barometric pressure graph is left blank.
• Whenever there is a sensor malfunction, be sure to take the watch to an
authorized CASIO distributor or Service Center as soon as possible.
Alteration of
Warning
and Graph – Temporary Low Power
Temporary low power is indicated on the display when the battery level
temporarily drops below a certain level.
• Sensors are disabled while the temporary low power warning is being
indicated, but the light and tones are operational.
• Very low temperature can cause the low power warning to appear even
though battery power is not low. The low power warning should disappear
when the watch is restored to normal temperature.
• If the low power warning appears under normal temperature, replace the
battery as soon as possible.
Alteration of
and
– Battery Usage Warning
The watch automatically monitors your use of certain high battery drain
functions. The battery usage warning display appears whenever the watch
determines that your use of these functions is putting a heavy load on the
battery.
• Sensors, the light, and tones are disabled while the battery usage warning
is on the display.
• The following are the trigger values for the functions that are monitored for
battery usage.
Light: 100
Sensor Operations: 1,000
Alarm: 100
Mode Change: 1,000
• The battery usage warning appears whenever any single function is
performed the number of times noted above, or for any proportional number
of operations of multiple functions (such as 50 light operations and 50 alarm
operations, 50 light operations and 500 mode change operations, etc.).
• The monitor counter continues to be incremented as long as the duration
between two high power drain operations is less than 15 minutes. The
counter is reset to 0 whenever 15 minutes pass between operations.
Display – Low Power Warning
The low power warning appears to let you know that battery power is low.
• Sensors, the light, and tones are disabled while the low power warning is on
the display.
• The low power warning may appear under very low temperatures, although
battery power is not low. Correct operation should resume when the watch
returns to normal temperature.
• If the low power warning appears under normal temperatures, have the
watch’s battery replaced as soon as possible.
• Be sure to read “BATTERY REPLACEMENT” before trying to replace the
battery.

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.
Height of building 130 m

Barometer
Barometric pressure indicates changes in the atmosphere, and by monitoring
these changes you can predict the weather with reasonable accuracy. Rising
barometric 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.
