D
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 light switch. If the 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 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
backlight can create a distraction, which can result in a traffic
accident and serious personal injury.

About the auto light switch
While the auto light switch 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
light switch 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.
• 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.

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.
