The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight. The watch will emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is caused by a transformer that vibrates when the EL panel lights up. It does not indicate malfunction of the watch.
If you input reminder text, the text appears on the display when the alarm time is reached. Note that reminder text appears only if the watch is in the Timekeeping Mode when the alarm time is reached. Otherwise, only the alarm tone sounds (without the reminder text).
0 to Press If you do not perform any button operation for about two or three minutes while the cursor is on the display, the watch automatically returns to the normal data display (the cursor disappears). How the text display scrolls The text area of the display can show only six characters at the time, so longer text scrolls continuously from right to left.
