FOLLOW THESE 8 TIPS TO GET THE
MOST OUT OF YOUR NEW WATCH!
1. Never Pull out the crown or operate
the pushers/buttons under water.
2. Make sure your crown is returned
to the original position before you
expose your watch to water.
3. If your watch is exposed to
saltwater it is very important to
wash it thoroughly under tap water
and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Keep it clean!
4. Sever impacts or drops may affect
your watches water resistance
and performance.
5. Avoid exposing your Freestyle
watch to extreme temperatures
such as in a hot shower, Jacuzzi,
sauna or hot tub. The combination
of extreme heat and water may
cause your watch to lose some of
its water resistance.
6. Avoid exposing your watch to
chemicals, soaps or solvents as
they deteriorate the water resist
seals in your watch.
7. Never try to remove the caseback,
leave this to a certified watch repair
technician or Freestyle service
center. This will help in preventing
water leakage from improper
battery replacement.
8. It is advisable to have your watch
pressure tested annually and to
re-furbish your watch every 2-3
years to extend the life of the watch.
