For information about selecting a Home City and configuring the DST setting, see
"Configuring Home City Settings".
While 12-hour format is selected for timekeeping, a P (PM) indicator will appear for
times from noon to 11:59 p.m. No indicator appears for times from midnight to
11:59 a.m. With 24-hour format, time is displayed from 0:00 to 23:59, without any P
(PM) indicator.
The watch's built-in full automatic calendar makes allowances for different month
lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there should be no reason to
change it except after you have the watch's battery replaced.

Barometer/Thermometer

This watch uses a pressure sensor to measure air pressure (barometric pressure) and
a temperature sensor to measure temperature.

five times to return to the Timekeeping Mode.
The watch will return to the Timekeeping Mode automatically if you do not perform
any operation for about one hour after entering the Barometer/Thermometer 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.

Temperature
Temperature is displayed in units of 0.1°C (or 0.2°F).
The displayed temperature value changes to --.- °C (or °F) if a measured
temperature falls outside the range of –10.0°C to 60.0°C (14.0°F to 140.0°F). The
temperature value will reappear as soon as the measured temperature 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, and Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit (°F) as the display unit
for the measured temperature value. See "To specify temperature, barometric
pressure, and altitude units".

(approximately – 0.09 inHg).
Barometric pressure is calculated and displayed using hPa as the standard. The
barometric pressure differential also can be read in inHg units as shown in the
illustration (1 hPa
0.03 inHg).
Pressure Sensor and Temperature Sensor Calibration
The pressure sensor and temperature 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 and temperature readings produced by the watch, you can calibrate
a sensor to the reading of another device to correct the errors.
Important!
Incorrectly calibrating the temperature sensor can result in incorrect readings.
Carefully read the following before doing anything.
– Compare the readings produced by the watch with those of another reliable and
accurate thermometer.
– If adjustment is required, remove the watch from your wrist and wait for 20 or 30
minutes to give the temperature of the watch time to stabilize.
To calibrate the pressure sensor and the temperature sensor
1.Take a reading with another measurement device to
determine the exact current barometric pressure or
temperature.
2. With the watch in the Timekeeping Mode, press
enter the Barometer/Thermometer Mode.
3. Hold down
to flash on the display. This is the setting screen.
Before the temperature value starts to flash, the
message SET Hold will appear on the display.
Keep
depressed until SET Hold disappears.
4. Press
to move the flashing between the temperature
value and barometric pressure value, to select the one
you want to calibrate.

Barometer and Thermometer Precautions
The pressure sensor built into this watch measures changes in air pressure, which
you can then apply to your own weather predictions. It is not intended for use as a
precision instrument in official weather prediction or reporting applications.
Sudden temperature changes can affect pressure sensor readings.
Temperature measurements are affected by your body temperature (while you are
wearing the watch), direct sunlight, and moisture. To achieve a more accurate
temperature measurement, remove the watch from your wrist, place it in a well
ventilated location out of direct sunlight, and wipe all moisture from the case. It
takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes for the case of the watch to reach the actual
surrounding temperature.

Altimeter

The watch displays altitude values based on air pressure readings taken by a built-in
pressure sensor.
How the Altimeter Measures Altitude
The altimeter can measure altitude based on its own preset values (initial default
method) or using a reference altitude specified by you.
When you measure altitude based on preset values
Data produced by the watch's barometric pressure sensor is converted to approximate
altitude based on ISA (International Standard Atmosphere) conversion values stored
in watch memory.
When you measure altitude using a reference altitude specified by you
After you specify a reference altitude, the watch uses
that value to convert barometric pressure readings to
altitude.
