Press MODE button; if you have
selected the Caribbean, Mexico,
West USA, or East USA, then DST
ON or DST OFF will appear on the
display. DST is an abbreviation for
daylight savings time. Note: All of
the western and eastern coastal
states in USA observe DST,
however, neither Hawaii nor Japan
observe Daylight Savings Time.
Note: The DST feature only needs
to be activated once by pressing
START button; it will adjust
automatically thereafter. However,
you will still need to adjust the time
of day at daylight savings time
changes. The DST flag will appear
on the display when the DST feature
is in the “ON” position.
Press MODE button; “USER OPT”
will appear on the display. If your
favorite location or beach break is
not one of the pre-programmed
locations, you may wish to add it.
To do this, you will need to know
the time difference between the high
tide at your favorite beach and the
high tide (for the same day) at
the closest pre-programmed beach.
This time difference information is
usually illustrated on tide calendars
or local tide charts, and is indicated
for example as (+ or -) 10, 20 or 30
minutes between two beach
locations. For example, suppose
your favorite beach break is Malibu,
which is not pre-programmed in the
watch, and your local tide calendar
indicates that Malibu tides are (+10)
minutes, compared to Los Angeles
tides. After entering Malibu as your
favorite beach, you would enter
(+10) as your offset.
To program your location or beach
break, press START button. Press
