The 1/100-second stopwatch can measure elapsed time
and lap/split times. The stopwatch uses the basic data you
input and a pacer signal to calculate the distance you
cover while jogging or running. Stopwatch times and your
distance are also stored in memory.
• The stopwatch measurement operation continues even
if you exit the Stopwatch Mode.
• Exiting the Stopwatch Mode while a lap/split time is
frozen on the display clears the lap/split time and returns
to elapsed time measurement.
• Stopwatch measurements are performed in the
Stopwatch Mode, which you enter by pressing C.

How the Stopwatch Works
There are two ways you can use the stopwatch: to measure elapsed time and lap/split
times like a standard stopwatch (see “To measure times with the stopwatch”), and to
keep track of the distance you cover while jogging or running. In order to use the
stopwatch to keep track of distance, you must first perform the steps listed below.
1. Set your basic data. See “Basic Data”.
2. Turn on the pacer signal. See “To turn the pacer signal on and off”.
Note
• In order to obtain accurate distance calculations, you must set accurate basic data
and keep your exercise pace in accordance with the pacer signal emitted by the
watch.
• Use the Recall Mode to view data stored in memory.
• You can view distance covered data only by recalling it in the Recall Mode. It does
not appear on the Stopwatch Mode screen.

Note
• Pressing D to perform a lap/split time operation freezes the lap/split time at that
point on the display for about eight seconds. After that, the display returns to normal
stopwatch time measurement.
• During a stopwatch time measurement operation, the upper part of the display
shows the hour digit and the current lap/split number, the center part shows the
current split time, and the lower part shows the current lap time.
• When the pacer signal is turned on, it sounds for the first 30 seconds after you start
a stopwatch time measurement operation. After that, the pacer signal sounds for 30
seconds whenever you press B.
• If the pacer signal does not sound even though you have it turned on, press B to
change the positions of the lap time and split time on the display. This should cause
the pacer signal to sound.

• When you first start a stopwatch operation by pressing A, both the center part and
the lower part of the display show minutes, seconds, and 1/100 second. Whenever
the time shown in the lower part of the display is greater than 60 minutes, the display
format changes to show hours, minutes, and seconds. Whenever the time in the
center part of the display is greater than 10 hours, the display format changes to
show hours, minutes, and seconds.
Basic Data
The term “basic data” refers to the pacer signal setup, and information about your
stride length.
Important!
• You cannot change basic data settings while a Stopwatch Mode time measurement
operation is in progress. Stopwatch operation must be stopped and the Stopwatch
screen must be cleared to all zeros before you can change basic data settings.
• Whenever you want to change the stride length unit, you must first reset the
Cumulative Total screen to zero.
• Be sure to update basic data values whenever the person using the watch changes.
Pacer Signal
The pacer signal of this watch beeps in accordance with a pacer value (rate) set by
you. You can use the pacer signal to maintain a constant pace while jogging or
running. You can also turn off the pacer signal when you do not want to use it.
• The pacer value you set specifies the number of beeps per minute.
• Turning on the pacer signal causes the watch to beep at the rate specified by the
pacer value.
• You can set a pacer value in the range of 100 to 200 beats per minute, in units of 5.
• You can disable the pacer function by setting a pacer value of xxx. While the pacer
value is set to xxx, the watch does not calculate distance covered.
Stride Length
You can specify either centimeters (XM) or inches (Yn) as the stride length unit. The
unit you specify for the stride length unit also determines the unit of measurement
used for the distance value in the Stopwatch Mode and Recall Mode, as shown below.

as the Timekeeping Mode.
• You can use lap time measurement to time how long it takes to complete a specific
portion (such as a single lap) of a race.
• You can use split time measurement to time how long it takes to get from the start to
a specific point in a race.
Memory Management
Each time you press A to start a new elapsed time or lap/split operation in the
Stopwatch Mode, the watch automatically creates a new “log” in its memory. The log
remains open for data storage until you permanently close it by pressing D to clear
the stopwatch to all zeros.
• The watch has enough memory to hold up to 61 records. Since each log title screen
uses up one record of memory space, the maximum number of lap/split time records
you can store depends on how many logs there are currently in memory, as shown
below.

Backlight
Auto light switch
on indicator
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 on indicator) for it to operate.
• See “Backlight Precautions” for other important
information about using the backlight.
To turn on the backlight manually
In any mode, press L to illuminate the display for about
one second.
• The above operation turns on the backlight regardless of
the current auto light switch setting.
About the Auto Light Switch
Turning on the auto light switch causes the backlight to turn on for about one second,
whenever you position your wrist as described below in any mode.
Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting it
towards you more than 40 degrees causes the backlight to turn on.
61 Records
• The watch also calculates the cumulative total distance for all stopwatch operations
since the last time the cumulative total distance was reset. The cumulative total does
not affect memory capacity.
• If watch memory is already full when you perform a stopwatch button operation that
creates a new log, the oldest log in memory and all of its records are deleted
automatically to make room for the new log.
• If you are adding records to the only log in memory and watch memory becomes
full, adding another record causes the oldest record in the log to be deleted
automatically to make room for the new record.
• If you are adding records to a log when there are multiple logs in memory and watch
memory becomes full, adding another record causes the oldest log in memory and
all of its records to be deleted automatically to make room for new records.

Backlight Precautions
• The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under
direct sunlight.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of the backlight shortens the battery life.
Auto light switch precautions
• Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist and movement or vibration of your arm
can cause the auto light switch to activate and illuminate 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.
More than 15 degrees
too high
• 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.
