Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch.
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.
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 confi rm 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 this product or its malfunction.

About This Manual
Depending on the model of your watch, digital display text appears
either as dark fi gures on a light background, or light fi gures on a dark
background. All examples in this manual are shown using dark fi gures
on a light background.
Button operations are indicated using the letters shown in the
illustration.
Note that the product illustrations in this manual are intended for
reference only, and so the actual product may appear somewhat
different than depicted by an illustration.

2. Check the Home City and the daylight saving time (DST) setting.
Use the procedure under "To confi gure Home City and summer time settings" (page E-20) to confi gure
your Home City and daylight saving time settings.
Important!
World Time Mode and Sunrise/Sunset Mode data depend on correct Home City, time, and date settings
in the Timekeeping Mode. Make sure you confi gure these settings correctly.
3. Set the current time.
See "Confi guring Current Time and Date Settings" (page E-22).
The watch is now ready for use.

Operation Guide 3443
Warning !
Important!
Your watch's Altimeter Mode calculates relative altitude based on changes in barometric pressure
measurement by its pressure sensor. For more information, see pages E-51 and E-65.
Immediately before embarking or otherwise taking altitude readings, be sure to specify a reference
altitude. If you don't the readings produced by the watch probably will not be very accurate. For more
information, see "To specify a reference altitude value" (page E-56).
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. For more information, see "To perform bidirectional calibration" (page E-30).
Things to check before using the watch
1. Check the battery power level.
Is "H" or "M" displayed for the battery power indicator (page E-11)?
NO
Does any one of the following conditions exist?
Battery power indicator shows "L" and "LOW" is flashing on the
display.
"CHG" is flashing on the display.
The face is blank.
YES
Power is low. Charge the watch by placing it in a location
where it is exposed to light. For details, see "Charging the
Watch" (page E-9).
