Stopwatch
Speed hand
You can use the stopwatch to measure elapsed time, lap
times and split times. If you specify a distance value, the
stopwatch also will calculate and display speeds.
• The digital display range of the stopwatch is 99 hours,
59 minutes, 59.999 seconds. The stopwatch continues
to run until you stop it. If it reaches the above limit, it will
restart the time measurement from zero.
• The stopwatch operation continues even if you exit the
Stopwatch Mode. If you exit the Stopwatch Mode while a
stopwatch operation is in progress, the segments of the
speed indicator will appear and disappear sequentially
as stopwatch seconds are counted.
• All of the operations in this section are performed in the
Stopwatch Mode, which you enter by pressing C (page
E-7).
Important!
• Check to make sure that the speed hand is not moving before you perform any
Stopwatch Mode button operation.
Specifying a Distance Value
You can use the procedure below to specify a distance value, if you want. If you
specify a distance value, the watch will calculate and indicate speed for certain
stopwatch operations.
• The distance value represents kilometers, miles, or any other distance unit you want.
Specifying a distance value of 10.0, for example, can mean 10.0 kilometers or 10.0
miles.
• No speed calculation is performed when 0.0 is specified as the current distance
value.
• For lap time readings, you can specify either the lap distance (when all the laps are
the same distance) or the total race distance.
• For split time readings, you can specify the total race distance only. Though the
watch will indicate a speed each time you take a split reading, they will be based on
the total race distance, and so they will not indicate actual intermediate split speeds.
E-14
E-15
To specify a distance value
1. In the Stopwatch Mode, make sure the stopwatch is
stopped and reset to all zeros.
• If you need to reset the stopwatch to all zeros, press A.
2. Hold down A for about three seconds until the watch
beeps, DIST (
) appears in the upper display, and
the left digit of the current distance value setting flashes
in the lower display.
• This is the distance value setting mode.
3. Press C to move the flashing between the values on
the left side and right side of the distance value digit
decimal point.
4. While either the left or right distance value is flashing,
use D (+) and B (–) to change it.
• You can specify a distance value in the range of 0.1 to
99.9.
5. After specifying the distance value you want, press A
to exit the setting mode.

• While an elapsed time measurement operation is being
performed in the Stopwatch Mode, the watch will display
a speed value, which is calculated based on the
distance you specified and the elapsed time. The speed
is indicated by the speed indicator (100 to 1000) on the
left and the speed hand on the right.
• The speed indicator indicates the 100s digit value.
• 1000 is indicated when the speed exceeds 1,000.
• The speed hand indicates 10s digit value.
Example:
At a speed of 1,740, a pointer appears next to 1000 in the
speed indicator.
The speed indicator on the left indicates 700.
The speed hand on the right indicates 40.
• Speed can be indicated from 0 to 1998. OVER is
indicated by the speed hand when the speed exceeds
1998.
E-17

• Illumination may be difficult to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Illumination turns off automatically depends on the current illumination duration
setting.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
• Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. Doing so causes the auto light
switch to operate when it 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.
• Resetting the seconds to
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
without changing the minutes.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2099.
• 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 has replaced.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode is
calculated in accordance with the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for each city,
based on your Home City time setting.
• 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 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, illumination may not turn on until about one second after
you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not necessarily indicate
malfunction of the auto light switch.
• 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.
• 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 1.5 seconds or 3 seconds,
even if you keep the watch pointed towards your face.
