Reference
This section contains more detailed and technical information about watch operation.
It also contains important precautions and notes about the various features and
functions of this watch.
Auto return features
• If you leave a screen with a flashing setting or a cursor for two or three minutes
without performing any operation, the watch automatically saves any settings you
have made up to that point and exits the setting screen.
• If you leave the watch in the Day Counter Mode or Telememo Mode for two or three
minutes without performing any operation, it automatically changes to the
Timekeeping Mode.
Data and Setting Scrolling
The D button is used in various modes and setting screens to scroll through data on
the display. In most cases, holding down this button during a scroll operation scrolls
through the data at high speed.
Initial Screens
When you enter the World Time, Day Counter or Telememo Mode, the data you were
viewing when you last exited the mode appears first.
World Time
• The current time in all World Time Mode cities is calculated in accordance with the
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each city, based on the current Home
City time setting in the Timekeeping Mode.
• The GMT differential is the time difference between the time zone where the city is
located and Greenwich Mean Time.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC) data.
Backlight Precautions
The backlight uses an LED (light-emitting diode) and a light guide panel that cause
the entire display to glow for easy reading in the dark. In any mode, press B to
illuminate the display for about three seconds.
• The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under
direct sunlight.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of the backlight shortens the battery life.
