Tide/Moon Data

In the Tide/Moon Data Mode, you can see the tide for the tide site you selected at specified time and the current date’s moon phase for your Home City. You can specify a date and view tide and moon data for that date.

See “Moon Phase Indicator” for information about the moon phase indicator and “Tide Graph” for information about the tide graph.

All of the operations in this section are performed in the Tide/Moon Data Mode.

Note

It takes about two seconds to calculate tide graph data. You will not be able to display a setting screen while data calculation is in progress.

Moon age is calculated to an accuracy of ±1 day.

You can view the current tide and moon age graph in the Timekeeping Mode.

Tide Data

The Tide Graph that appears first when you enter the Tide/Moon Data Mode shows the data at 6:00 a.m. for your currently selected tide site on the current date, according to the Timekeeping Mode. From there you can specify another time on the same date.

If the tide data is not correct, check your Timekeeping Mode settings and correct them if necessary. See “To configure tide site settings” for more information.

If you feel that the information shown by the Tide Graph is different from actual tide conditions, you need to adjust the high tide time. See “Adjusting the High Tide Time” for more information.

Moon Data

The moon phase and moon age information that appears first when you enter the Tide/Moon Data Mode shows the data at noon for your currently selected Home City on the current date, according to the Timekeeping Mode. After that you can specify another date to view data.

If the moon data is not correct, check your Timekeeping Mode settings and correct them if necessary.

If the moon phase indicator shows a phase that is a mirror image of the actual moon phase in your area, you can use the procedure under “Reversing the Displayed Moon Phase” to change it.

On some days, there are two high tides. With this watch, you can adjust the first high tide time only. The second high tide time for that day is adjusted automatically based on the first high tide time.

Reversing the Displayed Moon Phase

The left-right(east-west)appearance of the Moon depends on whether the Moon is north of you (northerly view) or south of you (southerly view) as you view it.

You can use the procedure below to reverse the displayed Moon phase so it matches the actual appearance of the Moon where you are located.

To determine the viewing direction of the Moon, use a compass to take a direction reading of the Moon at its meridian passage.

For information about the Moon phase indicator, see “Moon Phase Indicator”.

About the Auto Light Switch

Turning on the auto light switch causes illumination to turn on, whenever you position your wrist as described below in any mode. Note that this watch features a “Full Auto EL Light”, so the auto light switch operates only when available light is below a certain level. It does not turn on the backlight under bright light.

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

Wear the watch on the outside of your wrist.

More than 40°

ground

Warning!

Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading the display of 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 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 Bfor about three seconds to toggle the auto light switch on (auto light switch on indicator displayed) and off (auto light switch on indicator not displayed).

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

Power Supply

This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a rechargeable battery that is charged by the electrical power produced by the solar cell. The illustration shown below shows how you should position the watch for charging.

Example: Orient the watch so its face is

Solar cell

pointing at a light source.

 

The illustration shows how to position a

 

watch with a resin band.

 

Note that charging efficiency drops when

 

any part of the solar cell is blocked by

 

clothing, etc.

 

You should try to keep the watch outside of your sleeve as much as possible. Charging is reduced significantly if the face is

covered only partially.

Important!

Storing the watch for long periods in an area where there is no light or wearing it in such a way that it is blocked from exposure to light can cause rechargeable battery power to run down. Be sure that the watch is exposed to bright light whenever possible.

This watch uses a rechargeable battery to store power produced by the solar cell, so regular battery replacement is not required. However, after very long use, the rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full charge. If you experience problems getting the rechargeable battery to charge fully, contact your dealer or CASIO distributor about having it replaced.

Never try to remove or replace the watch’s rechargeable battery yourself. Use of the wrong type of battery can damage the watch.

All data stored in memory is deleted, and the current time and all other settings return to their initial factory defaults whenever battery power drops to Level 5 and when you have the battery replaced.

Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function and keep it in an area normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to keep the rechargeable battery from going dead.

The battery power indicator on the display shows you the current status of the rechargeable battery’s power.

The flashingLOW indicator at Level 3 tells you that battery power is very low, and that exposure to bright light for charging is required as soon as possible.

At Level 5, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory defaults. Once the battery reaches Level 2 after falling to Level 5, reconfigure the current time, date, and other settings.

The watch’s Home City code setting will change automatically toTYO (Tokyo) whenever the battery drops to Level 5.

Display indicators reappear as soon as the battery is charged from Level 5 to Level 2.

Leaving the watch exposed to direct sunlight or some other very strong light source can cause the battery power indicator to show a reading temporarily that is higher than the actual battery level. The correct battery level should be indicated after a few minutes.

Charging Precautions

Certain charging conditions can cause the watch to become very hot. Avoid leaving the watch in the areas described below whenever charging its rechargeable battery. Also note that allowing the watch to become very hot can cause its liquid crystal display to black out. The appearance of the LCD should become normal again when the watch returns to a lower temperature.

Warning!

Leaving the watch in bright light to charge its rechargeable battery can cause it to become quite hot. Take care when handling the watch to avoid burn injury. The watch can become particularly hot when exposed to the following conditions for long periods.

On the dashboard of a car parked in direct sunlight

Too close to an incandescent lamp

Under direct sunlight
