Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch.
ENGLISH
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.
Warning !
• The measurement functions built into this watch are not intended for taking measurements that
require professional or industrial precision. Values produced by this watch should be considered
as reasonable representations only.
• When engaging in mountain climbing or other activities in which losing your way can create a
dangerous or life-threatening situation, always use a second compass to confirm direction readings.
• Note that CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. assumes no responsibility for any damage or loss
suffered by you or any third party arising through the use of your watch or its malfunction.
Important!
• The watch’s Altimeter Mode calculates and displays relative altitude based on barometric pressure
readings produced by its pressure sensor. This means that readings taken at different times at the
same location may produce different altitude values due to changes in barometric pressure. Also note
that the value displayed by the watch may be different from the actual elevation and/or sea level
elevation indicated for the area where you are located.
• When using the watch’s altimeter while mountain climbing, be sure to perform regular calibration in
accordance with the local altitude (elevation) indications. For more information, see “To specify a
reference altitude value” (page E-56).
• Whenever you use the digital compass of this watch for serious trekking, mountain climbing, or other
activities, be sure always to take along another compass to confirm readings. If the readings produced
by the digital compass of this watch are different from those of the other compass, perform bidirectional
calibration of the digital compass to ensure more accurate readings.
• Direction readings and digital compass calibration will not be possible if the watch is in the vicinity of a
permanent magnet (magnetic accessory, etc.), metal objects, high-voltage wires, aerial wires, or
electrical household appliances (TV, computer, cellphone, etc.)

Charging the Watch
The face of the watch is a solar panel that generates power from light. The generated power charges a
built-in rechargeable battery, which powers watch operations. The watch charges whenever it is exposed
to light.
Charging Guide
Whenever you are not wearing the
watch, leave it in a location where it
is exposed to light.
• Best charging performance is
achieved by exposing the watch to
the strongest light available.
When wearing the watch, make sure
that its face is not blocked from light
by the sleeve of your clothing.
• The watch may enter a sleep state
(page E-18) if its face is blocked by
your sleeve even only partially.

Important!
• Allowing the watch to become very hot can cause its liquid crystal display to go blank (totally black or
totally white, depending on the watch model). The appearance of the LCD should become normal
again when the watch returns to a lower temperature.
• Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function (page E-18) and keep it in an area normally exposed to bright
light when storing it for long periods. This helps to ensure that power does not run down.
• 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 power to run down. Expose the watch to bright light
whenever possible.
Power Levels
Hold down B for at least two seconds to enter the Timekeeping Mode.
You can get an idea of the watch’s power level by observing the battery power indicator on the display.
Level
Warning!
Leaving the watch in bright light for charging 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.

Power Recovery Mode
Charging Times
• Performing multiple sensor, illumination, or beeper operations during a short period may cause the
recovery indicator (RECOVER) to start flashing on the display. This indicates that the watch is in the
power recovery mode. Illumination, alarm, countdown timer alarm, hourly time signal, and sensor
operations will be disabled until battery power recovers.
• Battery power will recover in about 15 minutes. At this time, the recovery indicator (RECOVER) will stop
flashing. This indicates that the functions listed above are enabled again.
• Frequent flashing of the recovery indicator (RECOVER) indicates that battery power is low. Expose the
watch to bright light as soon as possible.
• Even if battery power is at Level 1 (H) or Level 2 (M), the Digital Compass Mode, Barometer Mode,
Thermometer Mode or Altimeter Mode sensor may be disabled if there is not enough power available
to power it sufficiently. This is indicated when the recovery indicator (RECOVER) are flashing.
• Frequent flashing of the recovery indicator (RECOVER) probably means that remaining battery power
is low. Leave the watch in bright light to allow it to charge.

Taking Direction Readings
To take a direction reading
1. Make sure the watch is in the Timekeeping, Digital Compass, or Altimeter Mode (page E-30).
You can use the Digital Compass Mode to determine the direction of north, and to check your bearing to a
destination.
• For information about what you can do to improve digital compass reading accuracy, see “Calibrating
the Bearing Sensor” (page E-45) and “Digital Compass Precautions” (page E-49).
2. Place the watch on a flat surface. If you are wearing the watch, make sure that your wrist is horizontal
(in relation to the horizon).
3. Point the 12 o’clock position of the watch in the direction whose reading you want to take.
4. Press C to start.
• COMP will appear in the display to indicate that a digital compass operation is in progress.
• Starting a digital compass operation will cause the second hand to move momentarily to the 12

Note
• The watch will return to the Timekeeping Mode about 60 seconds after the direction reading
operation is complete.
• To restart a reading operation from the beginning, press C.
• Pressing B will return to the Timekeeping Mode even is a reading operation is in progress.
Important!
• If the second hand does not point exactly at 12 o’clock after you perform step 4 above, perform the
operation under “Hand Home Position Adjustment” (page E-39) to adjust it.
• If the digital display contents start to flash after you perform a reading operation, it means that
abnormal magnetism has been detected. Move away from any potential source of strong magnetism
and try taking a reading again. If the problem occurs when you try again, continue to keep away from
the source of strong magnetism, perform bidirectional calibration, and then try taking a reading again.
For more information, refer to “To perform bidirectional calibration” (page E-47) and “Location” (page E-50).
Digital Compass Readings
• After the first reading is obtained, the watch will continue to take digital compass readings automatically
each second for up to 60 seconds. After that, the reading operation will stop automatically.
• The margin of error for the angle value and the direction indicator is ±11 degrees while the watch is
horizontal (in relation to the horizon). If the indicated direction is northwest (NW) and 315 degrees, for
example, the actual direction can be anywhere from 304 to 326 degrees.
• Note that taking a direction reading while the watch is not horizontal (in relation to the horizon) can
result in large direction reading error.
• You can calibrate the bearing sensor if you suspect the direction reading is incorrect.
E-43
• Any ongoing direction reading operation is paused temporarily while the watch is performing an alert
operation (daily alarm, Hourly Time Signal, countdown timer alarm) or while illumination is turned on (by
pressing L). The direction reading operation resumes for its remaining duration after the operation
that caused it to pause is finished.
Calibrating the Bearing Sensor
You should calibrate the bearing sensor whenever you feel that the direction readings being produced by
the watch are off. You can use any one of two different bearing sensor calibration methods: bidirectional
calibration or magnetic declination correction.
• Bidirectional Calibration
Bidirectional calibration calibrates the bearing 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.
Important!
• To ensure correct direction readings by this watch, be sure to perform bidirectional calibration before
using it. The watch may produce incorrect direction readings if you do not perform bidirectional
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 whole 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°.
E-44
To perform bidirectional calibration
1. In the Digital Compass Mode, pull out the crown.
• This will cause 1 to appear on the digital display, with up arrow ( )
flashing.
2. While keeping the watch horizontal, press C.
• WAIT will be shown on the digital display while calibration is

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.
• 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.

Setting a map and finding 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.
• Note that map reading skills and experience are required to determine your current location and
destination on a map.

Digital Compass Precautions
Magnetic North and True North
The northerly direction can be expressed either as magnetic north or true

north, which are different from each other. Also, it is important to keep in
mind that magnetic north moves over time.
• Magnetic north is the north that is indicated by the needle of a
compass.
Magnetic north
• True north, which is the location of the North Pole of the Earth’s axis, is
the north that is normally indicated on maps.
• The difference between magnetic north and true north is called the
Earth
“declination”. The closer you get to the North Pole, the greater the
declination angle.

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 readings are also impossible indoors, especially inside ferroconcrete structures. This is
because the metal framework of such structures picks up magnetism from appliances, etc.
• Accurate direction readings are impossible while in a train, boat, air plane, etc.
Storage
• The precision of the bearing sensor may deteriorate if the watch becomes magnetized. Because of
this, you should store the watch away from magnets or any other sources of strong magnetism,
including: permanent magnets (magnetic necklaces, etc.), concentrations of metal (metal doors,
lockers, etc.), and household appliances (TVs, personal computers, washing machines, freezers, etc.).
• Whenever you suspect that the watch may have become magnetized, perform the procedure under “To
perform bidirectional calibration” (page E-47).
Important!
• When TYO (Tokyo) is selected as the Home City, the altitude unit is set
automatically to meters (m), the barometric pressure unit to
hectopascals (hPa), and the temperature unit to Celsius (°C). These
settings cannot be changed.
To specify altitude, barometric pressure, and temperature units
1. Make sure the watch is in the mode for the type of unit you want to
specify (Altimeter, Barometer, or Thermometer Mode).
• For information about changing modes, see “Selecting a Mode”
(page E-30).

Selecting the Altitude Auto Reading Interval
You can select either of the following two altitude auto reading interval.
0'05: Readings at one-second intervals for the first three minutes, and then every five seconds for
approximately the next hour
2'00: Readings at one-second intervals for the first three minutes, and then every two minutes for
approximately the next 12 hours
Note
• If you do not perform any button operation while in the Altimeter Mode, the watch will return to the
Timekeeping Mode automatically after 12 hours (altitude auto reading interval: 2'00) or after one
hour (altitude auto reading interval: 0'05).
To specify the altitude auto reading interval

The watch takes altitude readings and displays results based on air pressure measurements taken by a
built-in pressure sensor. It also saves various types of altitude records and data.
• The displayed altitude reading is a relative altitude that is calculated based on measurement of
changes in barometric pressure by the watch’s pressure sensor. This means that barometric pressure
changes can cause readings taken at different times at the same location to be different. Also note that
the value displayed by the watch may be different from the actual elevation and/or sea level elevation
indicated for the area where you are located. When using the watch’s altimeter while mountain
climbing, it is recommended that you perform regular calibration in accordance with the local altitude
(elevation) indications.

Using Reference Altitude Values
To minimize the chance of reading error, you should update the reference altitude value before setting off
on a trek or any other activity where you plan to take altitude readings. During a trek, keep checking the
readings produced by the watch against altitude information provided by markers and other information,
and update the reference altitude value as required.
• Reading error can be caused by changes in barometric pressure, atmospheric conditions, and
elevation.
• Before performing the procedure below, look up the altitude of your current location on a map, the
Internet, etc.

• Cumulative ascent and cumulative descent values are updated whenever there is a difference of at
least ±15 meters (±49 feet) from one reading to the next.
• Auto save values also include the date and time each value was recorded.
How High and Low Altitude Values are Updated
With each auto save reading, the watch compares the current reading against the MAX (high altitude) and
MIN (low altitude) values. It will replace the MAX value if the current reading is at least 15 meters (±49

E-63
Operation Guide 5470
• Entering the Altimeter Mode starts a new altitude auto reading session, but it does not reset the current
ASC and DSC values or change them in any way. This means that the starting ASC and DSC values for
a new Altimeter Mode auto reading session are the values that currently are in memory. Each time you
complete an altitude auto reading session by exiting the Altimeter Mode, the total ascent value of the
current session (920 meters in the above example) is added to the session’s starting ASC value. Also,
the total descent value of the current auto reading session (–820 meters in the above example) is
added to the session’s starting DSC value.
Note
• The high altitude, low altitude, total ascent, and total descent values are retained in memory when you
exit the Altimeter Mode. To clear values, perform the procedure under “To delete a specific record”
(page E-83).
How does the altimeter work?
Generally, air pressure decreases as altitude increases. This watch bases its altitude reading on
International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) values stipulated by the International Civil Aviation Organization
(ICAO). These values define relationships between altitude and air pressure.
• Note that the following conditions will prevent you from obtaining accurate readings:
When air pressure changes because of changes in the weather
Extreme temperature changes
When the watch itself is subjected to strong impact
There are two standard methods of expressing altitude: absolute altitude, which expresses an absolute
height above sea level, and relative altitude, which expresses the difference between the altitudes of two
different places. This watch expresses altitudes as relative altitude.
Height of building 130 m
(relative altitude)
Rooftop at an altitude of
230 m above sea level
(absolute altitude)
Sea Level
Regular calibration of the watch in accordance with values provided by local altitude (elevation) indications
is recommended before taking readings in order to maximize reading accuracy (page E-55).

Altimeter Precautions
Precautions Concerning Simultaneous Altitude and Temperature Readings
• This watch estimates altitude based on air pressure. This means that altitude readings for the same
location may vary if air pressure changes.
• Do not use this watch for altitude reading 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 by the flight crew.
For the more accurate altitude readings, leaving the watch on your wrist is recommended in order to
maintain the watch at a constant temperature.
• When taking temperature readings, keep the watch at as stable a temperature as possible. Changes in
temperature can affect temperature readings. See product specifications (page E-107) for sensor accuracy
information.

Taking Barometric Pressure Readings
Barometric pressure
change indicator
This watch uses a pressure sensor to measure air pressure (barometric pressure).
To take barometric pressure readings
Use B to select the Barometer Mode (BARO), as shown on page E-30.
• BARO will appear on the display, indicating that barometric pressure
reading is in progress. The results will appear on the display after
about one second.
• After a barometric pressure reading operation is started, the watch will
take readings every five seconds for the first three minutes, and then
every two minutes after that.
• To restart a reading operation from the beginning, press A.
• The watch will return to the Timekeeping Mode automatically if you do
not perform any operation for about one hour after entering the
Barometer Mode.

Barometric Pressure
• Barometric pressure is displayed in units of 1 hPa (or 0.05 inHg).
• The displayed barometric pressure value changes to - - - if a measured
barometric pressure falls outside the range of 260 hPa to 1,100 hPa
(7.65 inHg to 32.45 inHg). The barometric pressure value will reappear
as soon as the measured barometric pressure is within the allowable
range.
Display Units
You can select either hectopascals (hPa) or inchesHg (inHg) as the
display unit for the measured barometric pressure. See “To specify
altitude, barometric pressure, and temperature units” (page E-51).

range of ±10 hPa (0.3 inHg), in 1-hPa (0.03
inHg) units.
• The nearby screen shot, for example,
shows what the second hand would
indicate when the calculated pressure
differential is approximately – 5 hPa
(approximately –0.15 inHg).
• The second hand will point to
OVER (
) or UNDER (
) if the
barometric pressure differential is
outside the allowable range of the scale.
• The second hand will move to 9 o’clock
if a sensor reading could not be taken
for some reason or if the reading is
outside the allowable range.
• Barometric pressure is calculated and
displayed using hPa as the standard.

Your watch analyzes past barometric pressure readings and uses a barometric pressure change indicator
to inform you about changes in pressure. If the watch detects a significant change in barometric pressure,
it will beep and display a flashing arrow that indicates the direction of the pressure change. This means
you could start taking barometric pressure readings after reaching a lodge or camp area, and then check
the watch the next morning for changes in pressure, and plan you day’s activities accordingly. Note that
you can enable or disable display of the barometric pressure change indicator as desired.
The barometric pressure change indicator is displayed in the Barometer Mode and while the barometric
pressure graph is displayed in the Timekeeping Mode (page E-33).

Important!
• To ensure proper results, take barometric readings under conditions where the altitude remains
constant.
Example
– In a lodge or campground
– On the ocean
• A change in altitude causes a change in barometric pressure. Because of this, correct readings are
impossible. Do not take readings while ascending or descending a mountain, etc.
Enabling or Disabling Display of the Barometric Pressure Change Indicator
You can enable or disable display of the barometric pressure change indicator as desired. When display
of the indicator is enabled, the watch will take a barometric pressure reading every two minutes,
regardless of the mode it is in.
• When BARO is shown on the display, it means that barometric pressure change indicator display is
enabled.
• When BARO is not on the display, it means that barometric pressure change indicator display is
disabled.
• Note that time calibration signal reception and power saving (page E-18) are disabled while barometric
pressure change indicator display is enabled.
• Note that barometric pressure change indicator display cannot be enabled while the watch’s battery is
low.
Pressure Sensor Calibration
The pressure 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 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.
To enable or disable the barometric pressure change indicator
In the Barometer Mode, hold down D for at least two seconds. Wait until INFO appears on the left side of
the display and the current setting (ON or OFF) flashes on the right. Use this screen to enable or disable

Illumination Precautions
• The LED that provides illumination loses power after very long use.
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
• 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.
• 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 after the preset illumination duration (page E-95), 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.
• 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 current time setting is off by hours.
Your Home City setting may be wrong (page E-34). Check your Home City setting and correct it, if necessary.
■ The current time setting is off by one hour.
If you are using the watch in an area where time calibration signal reception is possible, see “To configure
Home City and summer time settings” (page E-34).
If you are using in the watch in an area where time calibration signal reception is not possible, you may
need to change your Home City’s standard time/daylight saving time (DST) setting manually. Use the
procedure under “To change the current time and date settings manually” (page E-36) to change the standard
time/daylight saving time (DST) setting.
Altitude Readings
■ Altitude readings produce different results at the same location.
E-100
■ ERR appears on the digital display during sensor reading operations.
There is something wrong with the sensor. This could be due to nearby strong magnetic force. Move
location where magnetism is not present and try again. If, after multiple retries, ERR keeps appearing,
contact your original retailer or CASIO service center. See “Location” (page E-50).
■ ERR appears following bidirectional calibration.
If the screen displays hyphens (- - -) followed by the ERR (error) indicator, it could mean there is
something wrong with the sensor.
• Wait for about one second for the ERR indicator to disappear from the display, and then calibrate the
sensor again.
• If ERR continues to appear even after multiple attempts to calibrate, contact your original retailer or
CASIO service center.
■ The direction information indicated by the watch is different from that indicated by a backup
compass.
• Move away from and potential source of strong magnetism, perform bidirectional calibration, and then
try taking a reading again. For more information, refer to “To perform bidirectional calibration” (page E-47)
and “Location” (page E-50).
■ Direction readings produce different results at the same location.
• Move away from any potential source of strong magnetism and try taking a reading again. See
“Location” (page E-50).
■ I am having problems taking direction readings indoors.
• Move away from any potential source of strong magnetism and try taking a reading again. See
“Location” (page E-50).
E-102
Taking Direction Readings
l l l ll l
ll
■ Readings produced by the watch are different from the elevation and/or sea level altitude
indications in my area. (Negative sea level altitude values are produced in a location where the
indicated elevation is a positive value.)
■ Following a relative altitude reading, the watch’s second hand points to 9 o’clock.
• The reading value is outside of the allowable measurement range. See page E-54.
• This could indicate sensor error. If ERR (error) is on the digital display, refer to “Direction, Altitude,
Barometric Pressure, and Temperature Readings” (page E-103) for more information.
ll
Time Setting
See “Radio Controlled Atomic Timekeeping” (page E-19) for information about adjusting the time setting
according to a time calibration signal.
■ I can’t get correct altitude readings.
Relative altitude is calculated based on changes in barometric pressure measurement by its pressure
sensor. This means that barometric pressure changes can cause readings taken at different times at the
same location to be different. Also note that the value displayed by the watch may be different from the
actual elevation and/or sea level elevation indicated for the area where you are located.
When using the watch’s altimeter while mountain climbing, you need to be sure to perform regular
calibration in accordance with the local altitude (elevation) indications.
For more information, see “To specify a reference altitude value” (page E-56).
lllll
Troubleshooting
E-99
■ Abnormal magnetism detection is indicated.
• Move away from any potential source of strong magnetism and try
taking a reading again.
• If abnormal magnetism is detected again when you retry, it could mean
that the watch itself has become magnetized. If this happens, continue
to keep away from the source of strong magnetism, perform
bidirectional calibration, and then try taking a reading again. For more
information, refer to “To perform bidirectional calibration” (page E-47) and
“Location” (page E-50).
E-101
Whenever you have a sensor malfunction, take the watch to your original retailer or nearest authorized
CASIO distributor as soon as possible.
Barometric Pressure Readings
■ Following a relative barometric pressure reading, the watch’s second hand points to 9 o’clock.
• The reading value is outside of the allowable measurement range. See page E-72.
• There may be a problem with the sensor. If ERR (error) is on the digital display, refer to “Direction,
Altitude, Barometric Pressure, and Temperature Readings” for more information.
Direction, Altitude, Barometric Pressure, and Temperature Readings
■ ERR appears on the digital display during sensor reading operations.
This indicates that there is a problem with the sensor, making sensor readings impossible.
• If the error is indicated while a reading operation in progress, restart the operation. If ERR appears
again, it could mean there is something wrong with the sensor.
• If ERR appears frequently, it could mean that the sensor is faulty. Contact your original retailer or
CASIO service center
■ I can’t change the temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude display units.
When TYO (Tokyo) is selected as the Home City, the altitude unit is set automatically to meters (m), the
barometric pressure unit to hectopascals (hPa), and the temperature unit to Celsius (°C). These settings
cannot be changed.

World Time Mode
■ The time for my World Time City is off in the World Time Mode.
This could be due to incorrect switching between standard time and daylight saving time. See “To
configure World Time City and summer time settings” (page E-92) for more information.
Time Calibration Signal
The information in this section applies only when LON, PAR, ATH, HKG, HNL, ANC, LAX, DEN, CHI,
NYC, or TYO is selected as the Home City. You need to adjust the current time manually when any other
city is selected as the Home City.
Charging
■ The watch does not resume operation after I expose it to light.
This can happen after the power level drops to Level 5 (page E-14). Keep the watch exposed to light until it
recharges sufficiently.
■ RECOVER is flashing on the digital display.
The watch is in the charge recovery mode. Wait until the recovery process is complete (about 15 minutes).
The watch will recover more quickly if you place it in a brightly lit location.
Note
• Performing repeated illumination and/or sensor reading operations over a short time period can cause
a sudden drop in watch’s charge. This will cause the watch to enter the charge recover mode. The
watch is in the charge recovery mode when RECOVER is flashing on the digital display. The charge
recovery mode is the same as a low battery charge state, access to some functions is limited while the
watch charge is recovering. Normal operation will resume after recovery is complete. For more
information, refer to “Power Recovery Mode” (page E-16).
• A flashing CHARGE indicator means that the charge level of the watch has suddenly dropped.
Immediately expose the watch to light to charge it.
■ The display shows the ERR indicator when I check the result of the latest receive operation.
Possible Cause
You are in an area where signal
reception is not possible for
some reason.
See “Approximate Reception Ranges”.

■ The current time setting changes after I set it manually.
You may have the watch configured for auto receive of the time calibration signal (page E-22), which will
cause the time to be adjusted automatically according to your currently selected Home City. If this results
in the wrong time setting, check your Home City setting and correct it, if necessary (page E-34).
