Data and Setting Scrolling
The D button is used to scroll through setting screen data on the display.
Holding down this button during a scroll operation scrolls through the data at
high speed.
Backlight Precautions
The backlight uses an EL (electro-luminescent) panel that causes the entire
display to glow for easy reading in the dark. In any mode, press B to
illuminate the display for about one second.
• The EL 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 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.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of the backlight shortens the battery life.
