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 Display

The Auto Display feature of this watch automatically cycles through the available color patterns.

To turn off Auto Display

Press any button to turn off Auto Display.

Doing so also performs the corresponding button function as described below.

A or B: Enters the Timekeeping Mode. C: Enters the Telememo Mode.

D: Toggles between 12-hourand24-hourformats. L: Turns on the backlight

Turning off Auto Display also returns to the default color pattern.

To turn on Auto Display

Hold down C for about two seconds until the watch beeps.

Note that Auto Display cannot be performed while a setting screen is on the display.

Auto Return Features

If you leave the watch in the Telememo Mode for two or three minutes without performing any operation, it automatically changes to the Timekeeping Mode.

If you leave a screen with flashing digits or a cursor on the display 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.

Data and Setting Scrolling

The B and D buttons are used in various modes and setting screens to scroll through data on the display. In most cases, holding down these buttons during a scroll operation scrolls through the data at high speed.

Initial Screens

When you enter the Telememo or Alarm Mode, the data you were viewing when you last exited the mode appears first.

Backlight Precautions

The backlight uses an EL (electro-luminescent)panel that causes the entire display to glow for easy reading in the dark.

In any mode, press L to illuminate the display for about two seconds.

The electro-luminescentpanel that provides illumination loses power after very long use.

The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.

The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not indicate malfunction.

The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.

Frequent use of the backlight shortens the battery life.
