Getting Acquainted
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out
of your purchase, be sure to read this manual carefully.
Applications
The built-in sensors of this watch measure direction, barometric pressure,
temperature and altitude. Measured values are then shown on the display.
Such features make this watch useful when hiking, mountain climbing, or
when engaging in other such outdoor activities.
Keep the watch exposed to bright light
The electricity generated by the solar cell of the
watch is stored by a built-in battery. Leaving or
using the watch where it is not exposed to light
causes the battery to run down. Make sure the
watch is exposed to light as much as possible.
• When you are not wearing the watch on your
wrist, position the face so it is pointed at a
source of bright light.
• You should try to keep the watch outside of
your sleeve as much as possible. Charging is
reduced significantly if the face is covered only
partially.

Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping
This watch receives a time calibration signal and updates its time setting
accordingly.
• This watch is designed to pick up the time calibration signals transmitted in
Germany (Mainflingen), England (Rugby), and the United States (Fort
Collins) and the time calibration signals transmitted in Japan.
• Signal reception normally is better at night than during the day.
• Time calibration signal reception takes from two to seven minutes, but in
some cases it can take as long as 14 minutes. Take care that you do not
perform any button operations or move the watch during this time.
• The time calibration signal the watch will attempt to pick up depends on its
current Home City code setting as shown below.
Current Time Setting
This watch adjusts its time setting automatically in accordance with a time
calibration signal. You also can perform a manual procedure to set the time
and date, when necessary.
• The first thing you should do after purchasing this watch is to specify
your Home City (the city where you normally will use the watch). For
more information, see “To specify your Home City” below.
• When using the watch outside the areas covered by the time signal
transmitters, you will have to adjust the current time setting manually as
required. See “Timekeeping” for more information about manual time
settings.
• The U.S. time calibration signal can be picked up by the watch while in
North America. The term “North America” in this manual refers to the area
that consists of Canada, the continental United States, and Mexico.

• Even when the watch is within the reception range of the transmitter, signal
reception will be impossible if the signal is blocked by mountains or other
geological formations between the watch and signal source.
• Signal reception is affected by weather, atmospheric conditions, and
seasonal changes.
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you
experience problems with time calibration signal reception.
Time Calibration Signal Reception
About Auto Receive
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration
signal: auto receive and manual receive.
• Auto Receive
With auto receive, the watch receives the time calibration signal automatically
up to six times a day. When any auto receive is successful, the remaining
auto receive operations are not performed. For more information, see “About
Auto Receive”.
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration receive operation with the press
of a button. For more information, see “To perform manual receive”.
Important!
• When getting ready to receive the time calibration signal, position the watch
as shown in the nearby illustration, with its 12 o’clock side facing towards a
window. Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.

signal only if it is in either the Timekeeping Mode or World Time Mode.
Reception is not performed if a calibration time is reached while you are
configuring settings.
• Auto receive of the calibration signal is designed to be performed early in
the morning, while you sleep (provided that the Timekeeping Mode time is
set correctly). Before going to bed for the night, remove the watch from your
wrist, and put it in a location where it can receive the signal easily.

• The watch receives the calibration signal for two to seven minutes everyday
when the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches each of the calibration
times. Do not perform any button operation within seven minutes before or
after any one of the calibration times. Doing so can interfere with correct
calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the current
time in the Timekeeping Mode. The receive operation will be performed
whenever the display shows any one of the calibration times, regardless of
whether or not the displayed time actually is the correct time.

• Use the receiving indicator as a guide for checking signal strength and for
finding the best location for the watch during signal receive operations.
• Following reception of the time calibration signal and calibration of the
watch’s time setting, the Level 5 receiving indicator will remain on the
display in all modes. The Level 5 receiving indicator will not be displayed if
signal reception was unsuccessful or after you adjust the current time
setting manually.
• The Level 5 receiving indicator is displayed only when the watch is able to
receive both time and date data successfully. It does not appear when only
time data is received.
• The Level 5 receiving indicator indicates that at least one of the auto
calibration signal receive operations was successful. Note, however, that
the Level 5 receiving indicator disappears from the display each day when
the first auto receive operation of the day is performed.

Digital Compass
A built-in bearing sensor detects magnetic north and indicates one of 16
directions on the display. Direction readings are performed in the Digital
Compass Mode.
You can store a direction reading in Bearing Memory and display that reading
as you take subsequent readings.
• For more information about Bearing Memory, see “Bearing Memory”.
• You can calibrate the bearing sensor if you suspect the direction reading is
incorrect.
• See “Using the Digital Compass While Mountain Climbing or Hiking” for
some real-life examples of how to use this feature.

• While the watch is taking compass readings, it displays a direction angle, a
direction indicator, and four direction pointers, which change dynamically
when the watch is moved. The direction angle, direction indicator and
direction pointers all disappear from the display after the compass reading
operation is complete.
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
You should calibrate the bearing sensor whenever you feel that the direction
readings being produced by the watch are off. There are three different
calibration methods available: magnetic declination correction, bidirectional
calibration, and northerly calibration.
• Magnetic Declination Correction
With magnetic declination correction, you input a magnetic declination
angle (difference between magnetic north and true north), which allows the
watch to indicate true north.
You can perform this procedure when the magnetic declination angle is
indicated on the map you are using.
Note that you can input the declination angle in degree units only, so you
may need to round off the value specified on the map. If your map indicates
the declination angle as 7.4°, you should input 7°. In the case of 7.6° input
8°, for 7.5° you can input 7° or 8°.
Note
• Note that taking a measurement
while the watch is not horizontal
(in relation to the horizon) can
result in large measurement error.
• Bidirectional Calibration and Northerly Calibration
Bidirectional calibration and northerly calibration calibrate the accuracy of
the direction sensor in relation to magnetic north.
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 becomes 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).
• The margin of error for the angle value and the direction indicator 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.
• Any ongoing direction measurement operation is paused temporarily while
the watch is performing an alert operation (daily alarm, Hourly Time Signal,
countdown timer alarm) or while illumination is turned on (by pressing L).
The measurement operation resumes for its remaining duration after the
operation that caused it to pause is finished.
• The following table shows the meanings of each of the direction
abbreviations that appear on the display.
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
existing 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.

taking direction readings.
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.
To perform magnetic declination correction
1. In the Digital Compass Mode, hold down E
for about two seconds until the magnetic
declination angle value starts to flash. This is
the setting screen.
2. Use A (+) and C (–) to change the magnetic
declination angle value.

Operation Guide 3070
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.
• Make sure that you do not move the watch while calibration of either
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.

Using the Digital Compass While Mountain Climbing or
Hiking
This section provides three practical applications for using the watch’s built-in
digital compass.
• Setting a map and finding your current location
Having an idea of your current location is important when mountain
climbing or hiking. To do this, you need to “set the map”, which means to
align the map so the directions indicated on it are aligned with the actual
directions of your location. Basically what you are doing is aligning north on
the map with north as indicated by the watch.

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 pressure sensor and the temperature sensor if you
suspect that readings are incorrect.

• The displayed barometric pressure value changes to xxxx hPa (or inHg) if
a measured barometric pressure falls outside the range of 260 hPa to
1100 hPa (7.65 inHg to 32.45 inHg). The barometric pressure value will
reappear as soon as the measured barometric pressure is within the
allowable range.
• Temperature is displayed in units of 0.1°C (or 0.2°F).
• The displayed temperature value changes to xxx °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 reappear as soon as the measured
temperature is within the allowable range.
• In some areas, barometric pressure is expressed in millibars (mb) instead
of hectopascals (hPa). It really makes no difference, because 1hPa = 1mb.
• You can select either hectopascals (hPa) or inchesHg (inHg) as the display
unit for the measured barometric pressure, and Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit
(°F) as the display unit for the measured temperature value. See “To select
the temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude units”.
• See “Barometer and Thermometer Precautions” 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.
This watch takes barometric pressure measurements automatically every two
hours (at the top of each even-numbered hour), regardless of its current
mode. Measurement results are used to produce barometric pressure graph
and barometric pressure differential pointer readings.
The barometric pressure graph shows readings of previous measurements for
up to 24 hours. The horizontal axis of the graph represents time, with each dot
standing for two hours. The rightmost dot represents the most recent reading.
The vertical axis of the graph represents barometric pressure, with each dot
standing for the relative difference between its reading and that of the dots
next to it. Each dot represents 1hPa.
The following shows how to interpret the data that appears on the barometric
pressure graph.
A rising graph generally means improving weather.
A falling graph generally means deteriorating 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 following conditions cause the barometric pressure

• The barometric pressure differential pointer is not displayed when the
displayed current barometric value is outside of the allowable measurement
range (260 to 1,100 hPa).
• Barometric pressure is calculated and displayed using hPa as the standard.
The barometric pressure differential also can be read in inHg units as

Altimeter
Displaying Your Current Altitude
You can use the procedure described in this section to display your current
altitude. If you leave the watch in the Altimeter Mode, it will update the
displayed altitude value regularly, and indicate reading-to-reading changes in
the altitude graph at the top of the display.
The Altimeter Mode gives you a choice of four different display formats. The
format you choose determines what type of data is displayed. The Altimeter
Mode screen can show any three of the following four items: altitude graph,
altitude value, altitude differential, and the current time. You also can select
either of the following two altitude measurement types.
0’05: Readings at five-second intervals for one hour
2’00: Readings at five-second intervals for the first three minutes followed
by two-minute intervals for approximately nine or 10 hours
• For information about configuring settings for the altitude reading interval
and duration, see “To select the altitude measurement type”.
Important!
• The procedure in this section simply displays values indicating your current
altitude, without storing them in watch memory. For information about
recording altitude readings in watch memory, see “Saving Altitude Data”.

How the Altimeter Measures Altitude
To select the altitude measurement type
llll
Important!
• This watch estimates altitude based on air pressure. This means that
altitude readings for the same location may vary if air pressure changes.
• The semiconductor pressure sensor used by the watch for altitude
measurements is also affected by temperature. When taking altitude
measurements, make sure the watch is not subjected to temperature
changes.
• To avoid the effect of sudden temperature changes during measurement,
keep the watch on your wrist in direct contact with your skin.
• Do not rely upon this watch for altitude measurements or perform button
operations while sky diving, hang gliding, or paragliding, while riding a
gyrocopter, glider, or any other aircraft, or while engaging in any other
activity where there is the chance of sudden altitude changes.
• 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.
Notes
• Normally, displayed altitude values are based on the watch’s preset
conversion values. You also can specify a reference altitude, if you want.
See “Specifying a Reference Altitude”.
• Altitude is displayed in units of 5 meters (20 feet).
• The measurement range for altitude is –700 to 10,000 meters (–2,300 to
32,800 feet).
• The measured altitude may be a negative value in cases where there is a
reference altitude value set or because of certain atmospheric conditions.
• The displayed altitude value changes to xxxx meters (or feet) if a
measured altitude falls outside the measurement range. The altitude value
will be displayed again as soon as the measured altitude is within the
allowable range.
• You can change the measurement unit for displayed altitude values to either
meters (m) or feet (ft). See “To select the temperature, barometric pressure,
and altitude units”.
ll
The watch’s altimeter uses a pressure sensor to detect current air pressure,
which is then used to estimate the current altitude based on ISA (International
Standard Atmosphere) preset values. You also can specify a reference
altitude, which the watch will use to calculate your current altitude based on
the value you specify. Altimeter functions also include storage of
measurement data in memory.
You also can measure the altitude differential (change) from a specific
reference altitude. Specifying the reference altitude is as simple as pressing a
single button to reset the reference altitude to zero.

Other Altimeter Mode Features
This section explains other features and settings that are available in the
Altimeter Mode. Note that all of the information in this section applies to all
types of Altimeter Mode measurements, unless specifically indicated
otherwise.
Specifying a Reference Altitude
After you specify a reference altitude, the watch adjusts its air-pressure-toaltitude conversion calculation accordingly. The altitude measurements
produced by this watch are subject to error caused by changes in air
pressure. Because of this, we recommend that you update the reference
altitude whenever one is available during your climb.
To set a reference altitude
How periodic records are created and saved
Note
The following operation is performed simultaneously with the operation
described under “How current session record data is updated”.
a. The watch creates Periodic Record 1 when you start a new save session.
Periodic Record 1 contains the current date (month and day), time, and
altitude.
• Each periodic record contains the current date (month and day), time,
and altitude.
b. After that, the watch takes readings and stores Periodic Records 2, 3, 4,
and so on at minute 00, 15, 30, and 45 of each hour.
c. After Periodic Record 40 is stored (or if you stop the save session
manually by holding down A), the watch will create a final periodic record,
which contains the current date (month and day), time, and altitude.
• Pressing A and C at the same time returns to OFF (no reference
altitude), so the watch performs air pressure to altitude conversions
based on preset data only.

Operation Guide 3070
About the Auto Light Switch
Turning on the auto light switch causes illumination to turn on, whenever you
position your wrist as described below in any mode.
Note that this watch features a “Full Auto EL Light”, so the auto light switch
operates only when available light is below a certain level. It does not
illuminate the display under bright light.
• The auto light switch is always disabled, regardless of its on/off setting,
when any one of the following conditions exists.
While an alarm is sounding
During sensor measurement
While a bearing sensor calibration operation is being performed in the
Digital Compass Mode
While a receive operation is in progress in the Receive Mode
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.
Altitude
4000 m
3500 m
3000 m
2500 m
2000 m
1500 m
Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting
it towards you more than 40 degrees causes illumination to turn on.
• Wear the watch on the outside of your wrist.

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 startle 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.
• Note that the following conditions will prevent you from obtaining accurate
readings:
When air pressure changes because of changes in the weather
Extreme temperature changes
When the watch itself is subjected to strong impact
There are two standard methods of expressing altitude: Absolute altitude and
relative altitude. Absolute altitude expresses an absolute height above sea
level. Relative altitude expresses the difference between the height of two
different places.
To turn the auto light switch on and off
In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down L for about three seconds to toggle the
auto light switch on (A.EL displayed) and off (A.EL not displayed).
• The auto light switch on indicator (A.EL) is on the display in all modes while
the auto light switch is turned on.
• The auto light switch turns off automatically whenever battery power drops
to Level 4.
• Illumination may not turn on right away if you raise the watch to your face
while a barometric pressure or altitude measurement operation is in
progress.
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 is interfering with
detection of terrestrial magnetism. Move away from the high-tension
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 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 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 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.
Height of building 130 m
(relative altitude)
Rooftop at an altitude of
230 m above sea level
(absolute altitude)
Sea Level
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 requires
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.
• 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 hang 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 affect pressure sensor readings momentarily.
Power Supply
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a special rechargeable battery
(secondary battery) that is charged by the electrical power produced by the
solar cell. The illustration shown below shows how you should position the
watch for charging.
Example: Orient the watch so its face is
pointing at a light source.
• The illustration shows how to position a
watch with a resin band.
• Note that charging efficiency drops when
any part of the solar cell is blocked by
clothing, etc.
• You should try to keep the watch outside
of your sleeve as much as possible.
Charging is reduced significantly if the
face is covered only partially.
Solar cell
11
Operation Guide 3070
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 exposed
to bright light whenever possible.
• This watch uses a special rechargeable battery to store power produced by
the solar cell, so regular battery replacement is not required. However, after
very long use, the rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full
charge. If you experience problems getting the special rechargeable battery
to charge fully, contact your dealer or CASIO distributor about having it
replaced.
• Never try to remove or replace the watch’s special battery yourself. Use of
the wrong type of battery can damage the watch.
• All data stored in memory is deleted, and the current time and all other
settings return to their initial factory defaults whenever battery power drops
to Level 5 and when you have the battery replaced.
• 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.

• The flashing LOW 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 5, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial
factory defaults. Once the battery reaches Level 2 (indicated by M indicator)
after falling to Level 5, reconfigure the current time, date, and other
settings.
• Display indicators reappear as soon as the battery is charged from Level 5
to Level 2.
• Leaving the watch exposed to direct sunlight or some other very strong light
source can cause the battery power indicator to show a reading temporarily
that is higher than the actual battery level. The correct battery level should
be indicated after a few minutes.
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

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.
• The watch returns to the Timekeeping Mode automatically if you do not perform
any button operation for two or three minutes in the Data Recall, Alarm, Receive,
Digital Compass, or Barometer/Thermometer Mode.
• If you do not perform any button operation while in the Altimeter Mode, the watch
returns to the Timekeeping Mode automatically after nine or 10 hours (altitude
measurement type: 2’00) or after one hour (altitude measurement type: 0’05).
• If you leave a screen with flashing digits on the display for two or three minutes
without performing any operation, the watch exits the setting screen
automatically.
Initial Screens
When you enter the World Time, Alarm, or Digital Compass Mode, the data
you were viewing when you last exited the mode appears first.
Scrolling
The A and C buttons are used on the setting screen 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.
Use A (+) and C (–).
Sensor Malfunction Indicator
Subjecting the watch to strong impact can cause sensor malfunction or
improper contact of internal circuitry. When this happens, ERR (error) will
appear on the display and sensor operations will be disabled.
Change the year, month, or day
5. Press E to exit the setting screen.
Note
• Auto DST (AT) can be selected only while LON, PAR, BER, ATH,
NYC, CHI, DEN, LAX, ANC, HNL, TYO, SEL, or HKG is
selected as the Home City code. For more information, see “Daylight
Saving Time (DST)” below.
• You also need to enter the Timekeeping Mode in order to configure the
following settings.
Power saving on/off (“To turn Power Saving on and off” )
Temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude units (“To select the
temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude units” )
Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Daylight Saving Time (summer time) advances the time setting by one hour
from Standard Time. Remember that not all countries or even local areas use
Daylight Saving Time.
The time calibration signals transmitted from Mainflingen (Germany), Rugby
(England), or Fort Collins (the United States) include both Standard Time and
DST data. When the Auto DST setting is turned on, the watch switches
between Standard Time and DST (summer time) automatically in accordance
with the signals.
• Though the time calibration signal transmitted by the Fukushima and
Fukuoka/Saga, Japan transmitters include summer time data, summer time
currently is not implemented in Japan (as of 2006).
• The default DST setting is Auto DST (AT) whenever you select LON,
PAR, BER, ATH, NYC, CHI, DEN, LAX, ANC, HNL, or TYO
as your Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your
area, it probably is best to switch between Standard Time and Daylight
Saving Time (summer time) manually.

Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• The time calibration signal bounces off the ionosphere. Because of this,
such factors as changes in the reflectivity of the ionosphere, as well as
movement of the ionosphere to higher altitudes due to seasonal
atmospheric changes or the time of day may change the reception range of
the signal and make reception temporarily impossible.
• Even if the time calibration signal is received properly, certain conditions
can cause the time setting to be off by up to one second.
• The current time setting in accordance with the time calibration signal takes
priority over any time settings you make manually.
• The watch is designed to update the date and day of the week
automatically for the period January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2099. Setting
of the date by the time calibration signal cannot be performed starting from
January 1, 2100.
• This watch can receive signals that differentiate between leap years and
non-leap years.
• Though this watch is designed to receive both time data (hour, minutes,
seconds) and date data (year, month, day), certain signal conditions can
limit reception to time data only.
• If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is
impossible, the watch keeps time within ±20 seconds a month at normal
temperature.
• If you have problems with proper time calibration signal reception or if the
time setting is wrong after signal reception, check your current city code,
DST (summer time), and auto receive settings.
• The Home City setting reverts to the initial default of BER (Berlin)
whenever the battery power level drops to Level 5 or when you have the
rechargeable battery replaced. If this happens, change the Home City to
the setting you want.
Transmitters
The time calibration signal received by this watch depends on the currently
selected Home City code.
• When a U.S. time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration
signal transmitted from the United States (Fort Collins).
• When a Japanese time zone is selected, the watch receives the time
calibration signal transmitted from Japan (Fukushima and Fukuoka/Saga).
• When a European time zone is selected, the watch receives the time
calibration signals transmitted from Germany (Mainflingen) and England
(Rugby). The following tables show the reception priority for the European
signals.
When PAR, BER, or ATH is selected as the Home City code:
In this case:
The first signal search
operation after the Home City
code has been changed
The second and
subsequent signal searches
The watch does this:
1. Checks the Mainflingen signal first.
2. If the Mainflingen signal cannot be
received, checks the Rugby signal.
1. Checks the signal of the transmitter of the first

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.
• 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.
• The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping
Mode is applied in all modes.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar 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 5.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time
Mode is calculated in accordance with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
differential for each city, based on your Home City time setting.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time
Coordinated (UTC) data.
Illumination Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after
very long use.
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination turns off automatically 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 illumination runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
• The auto light switch is turned off automatically whenever battery power is
at Level 4.
• Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist, movement of your arm, or
vibration of your arm can cause frequent activation of the auto light switch
and illumination of 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.
• Note that wearing the watch under your sleeve while the auto light switch is
turned on can cause frequent illumination of the display and can run down
the battery.
More than 15 degrees
too high
• Illumination may not turn on 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.
• Illumination 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 illumination does not turn on, try moving the watch back
to the starting position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it back towards
your face 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, illumination does not turn on until about one
second after you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not
necessarily indicate malfunction.
• 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.

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 all
moisture from the case. It takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes for the
case of the watch to reach the actual surrounding temperature.

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.
• Incorrectly calibrating the temperature sensor can result in incorrect
readings. Carefully read the following before doing anything.
Compare the readings produced by the watch with those of another
reliable and accurate thermometer.
If adjustment is required, remove the watch from your wrist and wait for 20
or 30 minutes to give the temperature of the watch time to stabilize.

Pressure Sensor and Temperature Sensor Calibration
The pressure sensor and temperature sensor built into the watch are
calibrated at the factory and normally require no further adjustment. If you
notice serious errors in the pressure readings and temperature readings
produced by the watch, you can calibrate the sensor to correct the errors.
