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.
Rechargeable battery
• The actual level at which some functions are disabled depends on the
watch model.
• Frequent display illumination can run down the battery quickly and require
charging. The following guidelines give an idea of the charging time
required to recover from a single illumination operation.
Approximately five minutes exposure to bright sunlight coming in through
a window
Approximately 50 minutes exposure to indoor fluorescent lighting
• Be sure to read “Power Supply” for important information you need to
know when exposing the watch to bright light.

About This Manual
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.
• You can use buttons A, B, and C to enter a sensor mode directly from
the Timekeeping Mode or from another sensor mode. To enter a sensor
mode from the Tide/Moon Data, Countdown Timer, Stopwatch, World Time,
Alarm, Data Recall, or Receive Mode, first enter the Timekeeping Mode
and then press the applicable button.

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 (Anthorn), the United States (Fort Collins)
and Japan.
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you
experience problems with time calibration signal reception.
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. This watch is designed to receive a time calibration signal late at
night. Because of this, you should place the watch near a window as shown
in the illustration when you take it off at night. Make sure there are no metal
objects nearby.
Current Time Setting
12 o’clock
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”.
• 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.
• Using this watch in a country covered by a time calibration that is different
from the countries it supports may result in incorrect time indication due to
local application of summer time, etc.
or
• Make sure the watch is facing the right way.
• Proper signal reception can be difficult or even impossible under the

Note
• When a calibration time is reached, the watch will receive the calibration
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 takes from two to 14 minutes to receive the time calibration
signal whenever a calibration time is reached. Do not perform any button
operation within 14 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.

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 also should remember that some
maps indicate true north (instead of magnetic north), and so you should make
allowances when using such maps with this watch.
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 also are 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°.
• 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).
4
Operation Guide 3134 3205
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.
To perform magnetic declination correction
1. In the Digital Compass Mode, hold down E
for about two seconds until the magnetic
declination angle and magnetic declination
angle direction values start to flash on the
display. This is the setting screen.
2. Use A (+) and C (–) to change the magnetic
declination angle and magnetic declination
angle direction settings.
• You can select a value within the range of
W 90° to E 90° with these settings.
• The following explains magnetic declination
angle direction settings.

• You can turn off (OFF) magnetic declination correction (which effectively
makes the magnetic declination angle: 0°) by pressing A and C at the
same time.
• The illustration, for example, shows the value you should input and the
direction setting you should select when the map shows a magnetic
declination of 1° West.
3. When the setting is the way you want, press E to exit the setting screen.
3. Place the watch on a level surface, and position it so that its 12 o’clock
position points north (as measured with another compass).
4. Press C to start the calibration operation.
• --- is shown on the display while calibration is being performed. When
calibration is successful, the display will show OK and the Digital Compass
Mode (with 0° shown as the angle value).
• If --- appears and then changes to ERR (error) on the calibration
screen, it means that there is something wrong with the sensor. When
ERR disappears after about one second, try performing the calibration
again. If ERR keeps appearing, contact your original dealer or nearest
authorized CASIO distributor to have the watch checked.
Using the Digital Compass While Mountain Climbing or
Hiking
This section describes three real-life situations where you could use the
watch’s built-in digital compass.
• To set a map and find 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.

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.

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 20 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.

About Barometric and Temperature Measurements
• Barometric pressure and temperature measurement operations are
performed as soon as you enter the Barometer/Thermometer Mode. After
that, barometric pressure and temperature measurements are taken every
five seconds.
• You also can perform a barometric pressure and temperature measurement
at any time by pressing B in the Barometer/Thermometer Mode.
Altimeter
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.
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 also is 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.
How the Altimeter Measures Altitude
The altimeter can measure altitude based on its own preset values, or a
reference altitude specified by you.
When you measure altitude based on preset values
Data produced by the watch’s barometric pressure sensor is converted to
approximate altitude based on ISA (International Standard Atmosphere)
conversion values stored in watch memory.
A falling graph generally means deteriorating weather.

Operation Guide 3134 3205
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
To display your current altitude
1. Press A in the Timekeeping Mode or in any
of the other sensor modes to enter the
Altimeter Mode.
• The watch will start altitude measurement
automatically, and display the result.
• It can take up to four or five seconds for the
altitude reading to appear after you enter
the Altimeter Mode.

• You can set the reference altitude within the
range of –10,000 to 10,000 meters (–32,800
to 32,800 feet).
• 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.
3. Press E to exit the setting screen.
Current altitude
• Readings are taken at five-second intervals for the first three minutes
after you enter the Altimeter Mode. After that, readings are taken at twominute intervals.

Illumination
Auto light switch
on indicator
The display of the watch is illuminated using an
EL (electro-luminescent) panel for easy reading
in the dark. The watch’s auto light switch turns on
illumination automatically 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 “Illumination Precautions” for other
important information about using illumination.
To turn on illumination manually
Press L in any mode to illuminate the display for about one second.
• The above operation turns on illumination regardless of the current auto
light switch setting.
• Illumination is disabled during time calibration signal reception, while
configuring sensor measurement mode settings, and during bearing sensor
calibration.
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.
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.
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 can the barometer be used to predict weather?
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.
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.

• 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.

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.

• Performing multiple sensor, illumination, or
beeper operations during a short period may
cause all of the battery indicators (L, M, H) to
flash on the display. Illumination, alarm,
countdown timer alarm, hourly time signal, and
sensor operations will be disabled until battery
power recovers.
After some time, battery power will recover and
battery indicators (L, M, H) will disappear,
indicating that the above functions are enabled
again.
• Even if battery power is at Level 1 or Level 2, the Digital Compass Mode,
Barometer/Thermometer Mode, or Altimeter Mode sensor may be disabled
if there is not enough voltage available to power it sufficiently. This is
indicated by battery indicators (L, M, H) on the display.
• If battery indicators (L, M, H) appears frequently, it probably means that
remaining battery power is low. Leave the watch in bright light to allow it to
charge.
Charging Precautions
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

Moon Phases and Moon Age
The Moon goes through a regular 29.53-day cycle. During each cycle, the
Moon appears to wax and wane as the relative positioning of the Earth,
Moon, and Sun changes. The greater the angular distance between the Moon
and the Sun,* the more we see illuminated.
* The angle to the Moon in relation to the direction at which the Sun is visible
from the Earth.
This watch performs a rough calculation of the current Moon age starting
from day 0 of the moon age cycle. Since this watch performs calculations
using integer values only (no fractions), the margin for error of the displayed
Moon age is ± 1 day.

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.
• If ERR appears while a measurement operation is being performed in a
sensor mode, restart the measurement. If ERR appears on the display
again, it can mean there is something wrong with the sensor.
• Even if battery power is at Level 1 or Level 2, the Digital Compass Mode,
Barometer/Thermometer Mode, or Altimeter Mode sensor may be disabled if
there is not enough voltage available to power it sufficiently. In this case, ERR

operation should resume once battery voltage returns to its normal level.
• If ERR keeps appearing during measurement, it could mean there is a
problem with the applicable sensor.
Whenever you have a sensor malfunction, be sure to take the watch to
your original dealer or nearest authorized CASIO distributor as soon as
possible.

Tidal Movements
Tides are the periodic rise and fall of the water of oceans, seas, bays, and
other bodies of water caused mainly by the gravitational interactions between
the Earth, Moon and Sun. Tides rise and fall about every six hours. The Tide
Graph of this watch indicates tidal movement based on the Moon’s transit over
a meridian and the lunitidal interval. The Tide Graph calculates and graphically
represents current tide conditions in your Home City or a port city in the
vicinity of the Home City based on longitudes, lunar day length, and lunitidal
interval preset in watch memory, and on high tide times specified by you.
To turn the button operation tone on and off
In any mode (except when a setting screen is on
the display), hold down D to toggle the button

Lunitidal Interval
Theoretically, high tide is at the Moon’s transit over the meridian and low tide
is about six hours later. Actual high tide occurs somewhat later, due to factors
such as viscosity, friction, and underwater topography. Both the time
differential between the Moon’s transit over the meridian until high tide and
the time differential between the Moon’s transit over the meridian until low tide
are known as the “lunitidal interval”.
The button operation tone sounds any time you
press one of the watch’s buttons. You can turn the
button operation tone on or off as desired.
• Even if you turn off the button operation tone,
the alarm, Hourly Time Signal, and Countdown
Timer Mode alarm all operate normally.
• Since the D button also is the mode change button, holding it down to turn
the button operation on or off also causes the watch’s current mode to

digital time reaches 6:00 AM, however, it will remain in the sleep state.
• The watch will not enter the sleep state while it is in the Digital Compass,
Barometer/Thermometer, Altimeter, Receive, Countdown Timer, or
Stopwatch Mode. When the watch is left in any mode besides the
Countdown Timer and Stopwatch Mode, it will return to the Timekeeping
Mode automatically after a specific amount of time. Then if left in the dark
for the elapsed time indicated in the table above, the watch will enter the
sleep state.

Operation Guide 3134 3205
• 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, 2000 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, minute,
second) 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 the time with the precision noted in
“Specifications”.
• 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 TYO (Tokyo)
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 (Anthorn).
• When your Home City is LON, PAR, BER, or ATH (which can receive both
the Anthorn and Mainflingen signals), the watch first tries to pick up the
signal it last successfully received. If that fails, it tries the other signal. For
the first receive after you select your Home City, the watch tries the nearest
signal first (Anthorn for LON, Mainflingen for PAR, BER, and ATH).
Timekeeping
• 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.
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.
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.

• 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 times for the Timekeeping Mode and all the city codes of the World
Time Mode are calculated in accordance with each city’s UTC offset.
• The UTC offset is a value that indicates the time difference between a
reference point in Greenwich, England and the time zone where a city is
located.
• The letters “UTC” is the abbreviation for “Universal Time Coordinated”,
which is the world-wide scientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon
carefully maintained atomic (cesium) clocks that keep time accurately to
within microseconds. Leap seconds are added or subtracted as necessary
to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s rotation.
Barometer and Thermometer Precautions
lll
Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping 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
• Illumination may not turn on if the face of the
too high
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.
