About Auto Receive
The watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to six times a
day. When any auto receive is successful, the remaining auto receive
operations are not performed. The reception schedule (calibration times)
depends on your currently selected Home City, and whether standard time or
Daylight Saving Time is selected for your Home City.

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.
About the Receiving Indicator
The receiving indicator shows the strength of the calibration signal being
received. For best reception, be sure to keep the watch in a location where
signal strength is strongest. The receiving indicator is displayed while an auto
or manual receive operation is in progress.

• Even in an area where signal strength is strong, it takes about 10 seconds
for signal reception to stabilize enough for the receiving indicator to indicate
signal strength.
• Use the receiving indicator as a guide for checking signal strength and for
finding the best location for the watch during signal receive operations.
• Following reception of the time calibration signal and calibration of the
watch's time setting, a "settings updated" indicator (
