To take a direction reading
12 o'clock position
Angle value (in degrees)
• While the watch is taking compass readings, it displays a direction angle, a
direction indicator, and four direction pointers, which change dynamically
when the watch is moved. The direction angle, direction indicator and
direction pointers all disappear from the display after the compass reading
operation is complete.
• Note that taking a measurement
while the watch is not horizontal
(in relation to the horizon) can
result in large measurement error.
• The margin of error for the angle value and the direction indicator is ±11
degrees. If the indicated direction is northwest (NW) and 315 degrees, for
example, the actual direction can be anywhere from 304 to 326 degrees.
• Any ongoing direction measurement operation is paused temporarily while
the watch is performing an alert operation (daily alarm, Hourly Time Signal,

The measurement operation resumes for its remaining duration after the
