  • Page 2: Getting Acquainted

    Getting Acquainted Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch. To get the most out of your purchase, be sure to read this manual carefully. • Be sure to keep all user documentation handy for future reference. Applications The built-in sensors of this watch measure barometric pressure, temperature and altitude.
  • Page 3 Keep the watch exposed to bright light The electricity generated by the solar cell of the watch is stored by a built-in battery. Leaving or Bright light using the watch where it is not exposed to light causes the battery to run down. Make sure the watch is exposed to light as much as possible.
  • Page 4 • The watch continues to operate, even when it is not exposed to light. Leaving the watch in the dark can cause the battery to run down, which will cause some watch functions to be disabled. If the battery goes dead, you will have to re-configure watch settings after recharging.
  • Page 5 • The actual level at which some functions are disabled depends on the watch model. • Frequent display illumination can run down the battery quickly and require charging. The following guidelines give an idea of the charging time required to recover from a single illumination operation. Approximately five minutes exposure to bright sunlight coming in through a window Approximately 50 minutes exposure to indoor fluorescent lighting...

  • Page 83: Questions & Answers

    Questions & Answers Question: How does the barometer work? Answer: Barometric pressure indicates changes in the atmosphere, and by monitoring these changes you can predict the weather with reasonable accuracy. Rising atmospheric pressure indicates good weather, while falling pressure indicates deteriorating weather conditions.
  • Page 84 Question: How does the altimeter work? Answer: Generally, air pressure and temperature decrease as altitude increases. This watch bases its altitude measurements on International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) values stipulated by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). These values define relationships between altitude, air pressure, and temperature. Altitude Air Pressure Temperature...

  • Page 110 Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping Precautions • Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set. • The time calibration signal bounces off the ionosphere. Because of this, such factors as changes in the reflectivity of the ionosphere, as well as movement of the ionosphere to higher altitudes due to seasonal atmospheric changes or the time of day may change the reception range of the signal and make reception temporarily impossible.
  • Page 111 • Though this watch is designed to receive both time data (hour, minutes, seconds) and date data (year, month, day), certain signal conditions can limit reception to time data only. • If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is impossible, the watch keeps the time with the precision noted in “Specifications”.
  • Page 112 Transmitters The time calibration signal received by this watch depends on the currently selected Home City code (page E-13). • When a U.S. time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration signal transmitted from the United States (Fort Collins). •...
  • Page 113 Timekeeping • Resetting the seconds to while the current count is in the range of 30 to 59 causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the seconds are reset to without changing the minutes. •...
  • Page 114 • The UTC offset is a value that indicates the time difference between a reference point in Greenwich, England and the time zone where a city is located. • The letters “UTC” is the abbreviation for “Coordinated Universal Time”, which is the world-wide scientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon carefully maintained atomic (cesium) clocks that keep time accurately to within microseconds.
  • Page 115 Auto light switch precautions • The auto light switch is turned off automatically whenever battery power is at Level 4 (page E-88). • Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist, movement of your arm, or vibration of your arm can cause frequent activation of the auto light switch and illumination of the display.
  • Page 116 • Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with proper operation of the auto light switch. If illumination does not turn on, try moving the watch back to the starting position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it back towards your face again.
  • Page 117 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.
  • Page 118 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 the sensor to correct the errors. Important! •...
  • Page 119: To Calibrate The Pressure Sensor And The Temperature Sensor

    To calibrate the pressure sensor and the temperature sensor 1. Press D to enter the Barometer/ Thermometer Mode (page E-10). 2. In the Barometer/Thermometer Mode, hold down A for about two seconds until either OFF or the current temperature calibration value starts to flash.

  • Page 127 Battery replacement requires the use of special tools. Always request battery replacement from your original retailer or from an authorized CASIO Service Center. • Some water-resistant watches come with fashionable leather bands. Avoid swimming, washing, or any other activity that causes direct exposure of a leather band to water.
  • Page 128 Should you notice any breakage, discoloration, looseness or other problem with the band, immediately contact your original retailer or an authorized CASIO Service Center to have it checked, repaired, or replaced. Note that you will be charged for any repair or replacement of the band.
  • Page 129 Temperature • Never leave the watch on the dashboard of a car, near a heater, or in any other location that is subject to very high temperatures. Do not leave the watch where it will be exposed to very low temperatures, either. Temperature extremes can cause the watch to lose or gain time, to stop, or otherwise malfunction.
  • Page 130 Magnetism • Though your watch normally is not affected by magnetism, very strong magnetism (from medical equipment, etc.) should be avoided because it can cause malfunction and damage to electronic components. • Though operation of your watch normally is not affected by magnetism, its accuracy may be affected if the watch itself becomes magnetized.
  • Page 131 Chemicals • Do not allow the watch to come into contact with thinner, gasoline, solvents, oils, or fats, or with any cleaners, adhesives, paints, medicines, or cosmetics that contain such ingredients. Doing so can cause discoloration of or damage to the case, resin band, leather band, and other parts. Storage •...
