Countdown End Beeper

The countdown end beeper lets you know when the countdown reaches zero.

When the progress beeper is turned off, the countdown end beeper sounds for about 10 seconds, or until you press any button to stop it.

When the progress beeper is turned on, the countdown end beeper sounds for about one second.

Progress Beeper

When the progress beeper is turned on, the watch uses beeps to signal countdown progress as described below.

Starting from five minutes before the end of the countdown, the watch emits four short beeps at the top of each countdown minute.

30 seconds before the end of the countdown, the watch emits four short beeps.

The watch emits a short beep for each of the last 10 seconds of the countdown.

If the countdown start time is six minutes or greater, the watch emits a short beep for each second of the final 10 seconds before the five-minutepoint is reached. Four short beeps are emitted to signal when thefive-minutepoint is reached.

This watch has two EL (electro-luminescent)panels thatAuto light switch indicator cause the entire display to glow for easy reading in the

dark. The watch’s auto light switch turns on illumination automatically when you angle the watch for reading

towards your face.

The auto light switch must be turned on (indicated by

the auto light switch indicator) for it to operate.

See “Illumination Precautions” for more important information.

To illuminate the display

In any mode, press L to turn on illumination.

The above operation turns on illumination regardless of the current auto light switch setting.

You can use the procedure below to select either 1.5 seconds or 3 seconds as the illumination duration. When you press L, the illumination will remain on for about 1.5 seconds or 3 seconds, depending on the current illumination duration setting.

To specify the illumination duration

1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down A until the seconds start to flash, which indicates the setting screen.

2. While the seconds are flashing, press Bto toggle the setting between 1.5 seconds () and 3 seconds ().

3. Press Ato exit the setting screen.

About the Auto Light Switch

While the auto light switch is enabled, illumination turns on whenever you position your wrist as described below in any mode.

Moving the watch to a position that is parallel to the ground and then tilting it towards you at more than 40 degrees causes illumination to turn on.

Wear the watch on the outside of your wrist.

Parallel to ground

More than 40 °

Warning!

Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading the watch using the auto light switch. Be especially careful when running or engaged in any other activity that can result in accident or injury. Also take care that sudden illumination by the auto light switch does not startle or distract others around you.

When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light switch is turned off before riding on a bicycle or operating a motorcycle or any other motor vehicle. Sudden and unintended operation of the auto light switch can create a distraction, which can result in a traffic accident and serious personal injury.

To turn the auto light switch on and off

In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down B for about three seconds to toggle the auto light switch on (auto light switch indicator displayed) or off (auto light switch indicator not displayed).

The auto light switch indicator is on the display in all modes while the auto light switch is turned on.

In order to protect against running down the battery, the auto light switch turns off automatically approximately six hours after you turn it on.

Scrolling

The Band 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 at high speed.

Initial Screens

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

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 towithout changing the minutes.

The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2099.

The watch’s built-infull 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.

World Time

All World Time Mode times are calculated from the current Home City time in the Timekeeping Mode using UTC time differential values.

The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds count of the Timekeeping Mode.

The UTC differential 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-widescientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon carefully maintained atomic (cesium) clocks that keep time accurately to within microseconds. Leap seconds are added or subtracted as necessary to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s rotation.

More than 15 degrees too high

Operation Guide 3078

Illumination Precautions

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

Illumination 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.

Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.

Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.

Auto light switch precautions

Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. Doing so causes the auto light switch to operate when it is not needed, which shortens battery life. If you want to wear the watch on the inside of your wrist, turn off the auto light switch feature.

Illumination may not turn on if the face of the watch is more than 15 degrees above or below parallel. Make sure that the back of your hand is parallel to the ground.

Illumination turns off after the preset illumination duration (see “To specify the illumination duration”), even if you keep the watch pointed towards your face.

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 you again. If this does not work, drop your arm all the way down so it hangs at your side, and then bring it back up again.

Under certain conditions, illumination may not turn on until about one second after you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not necessarily indicate malfunction of the auto light switch.

You may notice a very faint clicking sound coming from the watch when it is shaken back and forth. This sound is caused by mechanical operation of the auto light switch, and does not indicate a problem with the watch.
