Getting Acquainted
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out
of your purchase, be sure to carefully read this manual and keep it on hand
for later reference when necessary.
If the display of the watch is blank...
If the SLEEP indicator is on the display (either
flashing or steady), it means that the display is
blank because the watch's Power Saving function
has shut it to conserve power. Power Saving
automatically turns off the display and puts the
watch into a sleep state whenever your watch is
left in an area where it is dark for a certain
period.
Expose the watch to bright light to charge its battery before using it.
You can use this watch even as its battery is being charged by exposure to
bright light.
• Be sure to read “Battery” of this manual for important information
you need to know when exposing the watch to bright light.
Applications

• The direction value that appears on the display represents the clockwise
angle formed between magnetic north (which is 0 degrees) and the
displayed direction.
Note
• Note that taking a measurement while the watch is not horizontal (in
relation to the horizon) can result in large measurement error.
• The margin of error for the direction value is ±11 degrees. If the indicated
direction is northwest (NW) and 315 degrees, for example, the actual
direction can be anywhere from 304 to 326 degrees.
• Digital Compass operation is automatically interrupted whenever an alarm

Barometer/Thermometer
This watch uses a pressure sensor to measure air pressure (barometric
pressure) and a temperature sensor to measure temperature.
• You can calibrate the temperature sensor and the pressure sensor if you
suspect that readings are incorrect.
To take Barometric Pressure and Temperature Readings
Barometric pressure graph
(unit: 1hPa (mb)/0.05 inHg)
Pressing C in the Timekeeping Mode or in any
of the other sensor modes enters the Barometer/
Thermometer Mode. The watch automatically
starts barometric pressure and temperature
measurement, and displays the results.
• Barometric pressure is displayed in units of
1hPa/mb (or 0.05 inHg).
• Temperature is displayed in units of 0.1°C (or
0.2°F).
Temperature
Barometric pressure
• The displayed barometric pressure value changes toxxxx hPa/mb (or
inHg) if a measured barometric pressure falls outside the range of 260 hPa/
mb to 1100 hPa/mb (7.65 inHg to 32.45 inHg). The barometric pressure
value will be displayed again as soon as the measured barometric pressure
is within the allowable range.
• The displayed temperature value changes to xx. x °C (or °F) if a
measured temperature falls outside the range of –10.0°C to 60.0°C (14.0°F
to 140.0°F). The temperature value will be displayed again as soon as the
measured temperature is within the allowable range.
• Some countries refer to the barometric pressure unit hecto-pascal (hPa) as
millibars (mb). It really makes no difference, because 1hPa = 1mb. In this
manual, we use hPa/mb or hPa (mb).
• See “About Barometric and Temperature Measurements” for important
precautions.
Barometric Pressure Graph
Barometric pressure indicates changes in the atmosphere. By monitoring
these changes you can predict the weather with reasonable accuracy. The
barometric pressure graph shows the barometric readings for the past 26
hours. The flashing point on the right of the display is the point for the newest
measurement. Note that pressure graph readings are relative to the newest
measurement point. One dot above the newest point is plus 1hPa(mb)/
0.05 inHg, while one dot below is minus 1hPa(mb)/0.05 inHg. The following
shows how to interpret the data that appears on the barometric pressure
graph.
A rising graph generally means improving weather.
Note that if there are sudden changes in weather or
temperature, the graph line of past measurements may run
off the top or bottom of the display. The entire graph will
become visible once barometric conditions stabilize.

the barometric pressure graph being left blank.
• Barometric reading that is out of range (260 hPa/mb to 1,100 hPa/mb or
7.65 inHg to 32.45 inHg)
• Sensor malfunction
• Dead batteries
About Barometric and Temperature Measurements
• Barometric pressure and temperature measurement operations are
performed as soon as you enter the Barometer/Thermometer Mode. After
that, barometric pressure and temperature measurements are taken every
five seconds for the first three minutes.
• The BARO indicator flashes on the display while a measurement is in
progress.
• The barometer automatically takes measurements every two hours (starting
from midnight), regardless of what mode you are in. The results of these
measurements are used for the barometric pressure graph.
• You can also perform a barometric pressure and temperature measurement
at any time by pressing C in the Barometer/Thermometer Mode.
Barometer and Thermometer Precautions
• The pressure sensor built into this watch measures changes in air
pressure, which you can then apply to your own weather predictions. It is
not intended for use as a precision instrument in official weather prediction
or reporting applications.
• Sudden temperature changes can affect pressure sensor readings.
• 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.
• You can change the measured barometric pressure unit between hectopascals/millibars (hPa/mb) and inchesHg (inHg). See “Changing the
Barometric Pressure and Temperature Units” for details.
• You can change the measured temperature value displayed by this watch
between Celsius (°C) and Fahrenheit (°F). See “Changing the Barometric
Pressure and Temperature Units”.
Altimeter
A built-in altimeter uses a pressure sensor to detect the current air pressure,
which is then used to estimate the current altitude. The watch is preprogrammed with ISA (International Standard Atmosphere) preset values,
which are used to convert air pressure readings to altitude values. If you
preset a reference altitude, the watch will also calculate the current relative
altitude based on your preset value. Altimeter functions also include data
storage memory and an altitude alarm.
Important!
• This watch estimates altitude based on air pressure. This means that
altitude readings for the same location may vary if air pressure changes.
• 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.
• To avoid the effect of sudden temperature changes on measurement, wear
the watch so it is in direct contact with your wrist during measurement.
• Do not rely upon this watch for altitude measurements or perform button
operations while engaging in sports where there are sudden altitude
changes, while sky diving, hang gliding, or paragliding, or while riding a
gyrocopter, glider, or any other aircraft.
• Do not use this watch for measuring altitude in applications that demand
professional or industrial level precision.
• Remember that the air inside of a commercial aircraft is pressurized.
Because of this, the readings produced by this watch will not match the
altitude readings announced or indicated the flight crew.
How the Altimeter Works
With the Preset Values (No Reference Altitude)
• The watch measures the air pressure at your current location and uses the
built-in ISA values to convert it to the equivalent altitude.
A falling graph generally means deteriorating weather.
2
USER’S GUIDE 2471
With a Reference Altitude
• If you set a reference altitude, the watch
uses that value when calculating altitude
based on air pressure.
• To determine the height of a tall building,
set the reference altitude to 0 on the
ground floor. Note, however, that you may
not be able to get a good reading if the
building is pressurized or air-conditioned.
• When mountain climbing, you can set the
reference value in accordance with a
marker along the way or altitude
information from a map. After you do this,
the altitude readings produced by the
watch will be more accurate than they
would without a reference altitude.

• Starting a new measurement automatically clears relative altitude,
measurement time, maximum altitude, and total ascent values currently in
memory.
• Starting a new measurement does not clear cumulative total ascent. This
value continues to increase until it reaches 99,995 meters (327,983 feet).
After that, it reverts to 0 and starts again.
• The interval between memory measurements depends on whether the
Short Mode or the Long Mode is selected.
Short Mode: 5-minute interval
Long Mode: 15-minute interval
• Relative altitude, cumulative total ascent, and maximum altitude data is
calculated at regular intervals, depending on the Long Mode/Short Mode
setting. In both modes, calculations are performed every five seconds for the
first three minutes. After that, calculations are performed every minute in the
Short Mode and every two minutes in the Long Mode.

Questions & Answers
Question: What causes incorrect direction readings?
Answer:
• Incorrect bidirectional calibration. Perform bidirectional calibration.
• Nearby source of strong magnetism, such as a household appliance, a
large steel bridge, a steel beam, overhead wires, etc., or an attempt to
perform direction measurement on a train, boat, etc. Move away from large
metal objects and try again. Note that digital compass operation cannot be
performed inside a train, boat, etc.
Question: What causes different direction readings to produce different
results at the same location ?
Answer:
Magnetism generated by nearby high-tension wires are interfering
with detection of terrestrial magnetism. Move away from the hightension wires and try again.
Question: Why am I having problems taking direction readings indoors ?
Answer:
A TV, personal computer, speakers, or some other object is
interfering with terrestrial magnetism readings. Move away from
the object causing the interference or take the direction reading
outdoors. Indoor taking direction readings are particularly difficult
inside ferro-concrete structures. Remember that you will not be
able to take direction readings inside of trains, airplanes, etc.
Question: How does the altimeter work?
Answer:
Generally, air pressure and temperature decrease as altitude
increases. This watch bases its altitude measurements on
International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) values stipulated by the
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). These values
define relationships between altitude, air pressure, and
temperature.

Precautions Concerning Simultaneous Measurement of Altitude and
Temperature
Though you can perform altitude and temperature measurements at the same
time, you should remember that each of these measurements require
different conditions for best results. With temperature measurement, it is best
to remove the watch from your wrist in order to eliminate the effects of body
heat. In the case of altitude measurement, on the other hand, it is better to
leave the watch on your wrist, because doing so keeps the watch at a
constant temperature, which contributes to more accurate altitude
measurements.
The following describes what you should do to give priority to either altitude or
temperature.
• To give altitude measurement priority, leave the watch on your wrist or in
any other location where the temperature of the watch is kept constant.
• To give temperature measurement priority, remove the watch from your
wrist and allow it to hand freely from your bag or in another location where
it is not exposed to direct sunlight. Note that removing the watch from your
wrist can momentarily affect pressure sensor readings.
Question: How does the barometer work?
Answer: Barometric pressure indicates changes in the atmosphere, and by
monitoring these changes you can predict the weather with
reasonable accuracy. Rising atmospheric pressure indicates good
weather, while falling pressure indicates deterioration 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.
Battery
Solar cell panel
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a
rechargeable battery (secondary battery) that is
charged by the electrical power produced by the
solar cell.
Important!
• Storing the watch for long periods in an area
where there is no light or wearing it in such a
way that it is blocked from exposure to light can
cause rechargeable battery power to run down.
Be sure that the watch is normally exposed to
bright light whenever possible.

USER’S GUIDE 2471
• This watch employs a solar cell that converts light into electricity that
charges a built-in rechargeable battery. Normally, the rechargeable battery
should not need replacement, but after very long use over a number of
years, the rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full charge.
Should you notice problems with getting the rechargeable battery to a full
charge, contact your dealer or CASIO distributor about having the
rechargeable battery replaced.
• The rechargeable battery should be replaced with a CASIO-specified
CTL1616 battery only. Other rechargeable batteries can cause damage to the
watch.
• Having the battery replaced will delete all data stored in watch memory.
• Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function and keep it in an area normally
exposed to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to keep
the rechargeable battery from going dead.

Charging Precautions
Certain charging conditions can cause the watch to become very hot. Avoid
leaving the watch in the areas described below whenever charging its
rechargeable battery.
Also note that allowing the watch to become very hot can cause its liquid
crystal display to black out. The appearance of the LCD should become
normal again when the watch returns to a lower temperature.
Warning!
Leaving the watch in bright light to charge its rechargeable battery can
cause it to become quite hot. Take care when handling the watch to
avoid burn injury. The watch can become particularly hot when exposed
to the following conditions for long periods.
• On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight
• Too close to an incandescent lamp
• Under direct sunlight
Charging Guide
After a full charge, timekeeping remains enabled for up to about five months,
while the watch is used under the conditions described below.

• The flashing CHARGE indicator at Level 3 tells you that battery power is
very low, and that exposure to bright light for charging is required as soon
as possible.
• At Level 4, all functions are disabled. Functions are enabled once again after
the rechargeable battery is charged, but anything previously stored in memory
is lost. Because of this, you need to set the current time and date after the
battery is recharged to Level 2 from Level 4. Though the time appears on
the display after the battery is charged to Level 3, you will not be able to
change the time setting until the battery reaches Level 2.
• Leaving the watch in direct sunlight or some other very strong light source
can cause the battery power indicator to temporarily show a reading that is
actually higher than the battery level. The correct battery power indicator
should appear after a few minutes.
• If you use the backlight or the alarm a number of times during a short
period, RECOVER appears on the display and the following operations
become disabled until battery power recovers.
Backlight; Alarm and hourly time signal; Sensor operation
After some time, battery power will recover and RECOVER will disappear,
indicating that the above functions are enabled again.
• Even if battery power is at Level 1 or Level 2, the Digital Compass Mode,
Barometer/Thermometer Mode, or Altimeter Mode sensor may be disabled
if there is not enough voltage available to power it sufficiently. This condition
is indicated on the display as shown in the table below. Sensor operation
should resume when battery voltage returns to the normal levels.

• After battery power drops to Level 4, the watch performs a memory check
when power is restored from Level 3 to Level 2. The message ERR appears
on the display if any memory abnormality is discovered. If this happens,
take the watch to an authorized CASIO distributor or maintenance service
provider.
• Even if battery power is at Level 1 or Level 2, the Digital Compass Mode,
Barometer/Thermometer Mode, or Altimeter Mode sensor may be disabled
if there is not enough voltage available to power it sufficiently. In this case,
the ERR message appears on the display when you switch to the
Timekeeping Mode. This does not indicate malfunction, and sensor
operation should resume once battery voltage returns to its normal level.
• Even if battery power is at Level 1 or Level 2, the ERR message will appear
on the Timekeeping Mode screen if there is not enough voltage available to
power the pressure sensor sufficiently during a barometric pressure
measurement or memory measurement (altitude) operation. This does not
indicate malfunction, and sensor operation should resume once battery
voltage returns to its normal level.
Whenever you have a sensor malfunction, be sure to take the watch to an
authorized CASIO distributor or service provider as soon as possible.

Data and Setting Scrolling
The E and B buttons are used in various modes and setting screens to
scroll through data on the display. In most cases, holding down these buttons
during a scroll operation scrolls through the data at high speed.
Timekeeping
• Resetting the seconds to 00 while the current count is in the range of 30 to
59 causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the
seconds are reset to 00 without changing the minutes.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2039.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar automatically makes allowances
for different month lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there
should be no reason to change it except when battery power drops to Level
4.
12-hour/24-hour Timekeeping Formats
The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping Mode
is also applied in all modes.
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears on the display for
times in the range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and no indicator appears for times
in the range of midnight to 11:59 a.m.
• With the 24-hour format, times are displayed in the range of 0:00 to 23:59,
without any indicator.
Backlight Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after
very long use.
• The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed
under direct sunlight.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated.
This is due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not
indicate malfunction.
• Frequent use of the backlight runs down the battery.
• Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist and movement or vibration of
your arm can cause the auto light switch to activate and illuminate the
display. To avoid running down the battery, turn off the auto light switch
whenever engaging in activities that might cause frequent illumination of
the display.
More than 15 degrees
too high
• The backlight may not light if the face of the
watch is more than 15 degrees above or below
parallel. Make sure that the back of your hand
is parallel to the ground.
• The backlight turns off in about two seconds,
even if you keep the watch pointed towards
your face.
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with proper operation of the
auto light switch. If the backlight does not light, try moving the watch back to
the starting position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it back toward
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
after you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not necessarily
indicate malfunction of the backlight.
Digital Compass Precautions
This watch features a built-in magnetic bearing sensor that detects terrestrial
magnetism. This means that north indicated by this watch is magnetic north,
which is somewhat different from true polar north. The magnetic north pole is
located in northern Canada, while the magnetic south pole is in southern
Australia. Note that the difference between magnetic north and true north as
measured with all magnetic compasses tends to be greater as one gets
closer to either of the magnetic poles. You should also remember that some
maps indicate true north (instead of magnetic north), and so you should make
allowances when using such maps with this watch.
Location
• Taking a direction reading when you are near a source of strong magnetism
can cause large errors in readings. Because of this, you should avoid taking
direction readings while in the vicinity of the following types of objects:
permanent magnets (magnetic necklaces, etc.), concentrations of metal
(metal doors, lockers, etc.), high tension wires, aerial wires, household
appliances (TVs, personal computers, washing machines, freezers, etc.)
• Accurate direction readings are impossible while in a train, boat, air plane,
etc.
• Accurate readings are also impossible indoors, especially inside ferroconcrete structures. This is because the metal framework of such structures
picks up magnetism from appliances, etc.
Storage
• The precision of the bearing sensor may deteriorate if the watch becomes
magnetized. Because of this, you should be sure to store the watch away
from magnets or any other sources of strong magnetism, including:
permanent magnets (magnetic necklaces, etc.) and household appliances
(TVs, personal computers, washing machines, freezers, etc.)
• Whenever you suspect that the watch may have become magnetized,
perform one of the calibration procedures under “Calibrating the Bearing
Sensor”.
Calibrating the Bearing Sensor
Whenever you suspect that direction readings produced by the watch are
wrong, you should calibrate it. You can use either one of two calibration
procedures: bidirectional calibration or northerly calibration.
Use bidirectional calibration when you want to take readings within an area
exposed to magnetic force. This type of calibration should be used if the
watch become magnetized for any reason.
With northerly calibration, you “teach” the watch which way is north (which
you have to determine with another compass or some other means). You
could use this calibration procedure, for example, to set the watch to indicate
true north instead of magnetic north.
Important!
• If you want to perform both bidirectional and northerly calibration, be sure
to perform bidirectional calibration first, and then perform northerly
calibration. This is necessary because bidirectional calibration cancels any
previously set northerly calibration setting.
• The more correctly you perform bidirectional calibration, the better the
accuracy of the bearing sensor readouts. You should perform bidirectional
calibration whenever you change environments where you use the bearing
sensor, and whenever you feel that the bearing sensor is producing
incorrect readings.

The pressure sensor of this watch is calibrated at the factory before shipment
and further adjustment is normally not required. If you notice serious errors in
the barometric pressure readings produced by the watch, you can calibrate
the sensor to correct the errors.
Important!
Incorrectly calibrating the barometric pressure sensor can result in incorrect
readings. Before performing the calibration procedure, compare the readings
produced by the watch with those of another reliable and accurate barometer.

Precautions about bidirectional calibration
• You can use any two opposing directions for bidirectional calibration. You
must, however, make sure that they are 180 degrees opposite each other.
Remember that if you perform the procedure incorrectly, you will get wrong
bearing sensor readings.
• Do not move the watch during the one or two seconds (from the point you
press B up to the point that OK appears in the upper display area) that the
calibration of each direction is in progress.
• You should perform bidirectional calibration in an environment that is the
same as that where you plan to be taking direction readings. If you plan to
take direction readings in an open field, for example, calibrate in an open
field.
