current Home City time setting in the Timekeeping Mode.
• The GMT differential is the time difference between the time zone where the
city is located and Greenwich Mean Time.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time
Coordinated (UTC) data.
Backlight Precautions

cause the entire display to glow for easy reading in the dark. In any mode,
press B to illuminate the display for about three seconds.
