Time Calibration Signal Reception
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration signal:
auto receive and manual receive.
• Auto Receive
With auto receive, the watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to
6 times a day (5 times a day for the Chinese calibration signal). When any auto
receive is successful, the remaining auto receive operations are not performed. For
more information, see "About Auto Receive".
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration receive operation with the press of a
button. For more information, see "To perform manual receive".
• When getting ready to receive the time calibration signal, position the watch as
shown in the nearby illustration, with its 12 o'clock side pointing towards a window.
This watch is designed to receive a time calibration signal late at night. Because of
this, you should place the watch near a window as shown in the illustration when you
take it off at night. Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.
• Make sure the watch is facing the right way.
• Proper signal reception can be difficult or even impossible under the conditions listed
