Warning!
∑ Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading the
display of the watch using the auto light switch. Be especially careful when
running or engaged in any other activity that can result in accident or injury.
Also take care that sudden illumination by the auto light switch does not
surprise or distract others around you.
∑ 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 auto light switch can create
a distraction, which can result in a traffic accident and serious personal injury.

(Auto light switch indicator displayed) or off (Auto light switch indicator not displayed).
∑ The auto light switch indicator is on the display in all modes while the auto light

automatically turns off approximately six hours after you turn it on. Repeat the above
procedure to turn the auto light switch back on if you want.
Reference
This section contains more detailed and technical information about watch operation.
It also contains important precautions and notes about the various features and
functions of this watch.
Auto return features
If you leave a screen with flashing digits for two or three minutes without performing
any operation, the watch automatically saves any settings you have made up to that
point and exits the setting screen.
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
Elapsed time
Start
The backlight uses an LED (light-emitting diode) and a
light guide panel that cause the entire display to glow for
easy reading in the dark. The watch’s auto light switch
automatically turns on the backlight when you angle the
watch towards your face.
∑ The auto light switch must be turned on (indicated by
the auto light switch indicator) for it to operate.
∑ See “Backlight Precautions” for other important
information about using the backlight.
∑ The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under
direct sunlight.
∑ The backlight automatically stops illuminating whenever an alarm sounds.
∑ Frequent use of the backlight shortens the battery life.
Auto light switch precautions
∑ Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist.
More than 15 degrees
Doing so causes the auto light switch to operate when it
too high
is not needed, which shortens battery life. If you want to
wear the watch on the inside of your wrist, turn off the
auto light switch feature.
∑ 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 one second, 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.
∑ You may notice a very faint clicking sound coming from the watch when it is shaken
back and forth. This sound is caused by mechanical operation of the auto light
switch, and does not indicate a problem with the watch.
