Temperature
Important!
• Sudden temperature changes can affect pressure sensor readings.
• Temperature measurements are affected by your body temperature (while you are
wearing the watch), direct sunlight, and moisture. To achieve a more accurate
temperature measurement, remove the watch from your wrist, place it in a well
ventilated location out of direct sunlight, and wipe all moisture from the case. It takes
approximately 20 to 30 minutes for the case of the watch to reach the actual
surrounding temperature.
Temperature Sensor Calibration
The temperature sensor built into the watch is calibrated at the factory, and normally
does not need any adjustment. However, if you feel that readings being produced by
the watch are not correct for some reason, you can calibrate the temperature sensor
to correct them.
Important!
• Incorrectly calibrating the temperature sensor can result in incorrect readings.
Carefully read the following before doing anything.
Compare the readings produced by the watch with those of another reliable and
accurate thermometer.
If adjustment is required, remove the watch from your wrist and wait for 20 or 30
minutes to give the temperature of the watch time to stabilize.
To calibrate the temperature sensor
1. In the Digital Compass/Thermometer Mode, hold down
A until the indicator at the 12 o’clock position starts to
flash.

Digital Compass
The watch takes digital compass readings automatically whenever you enter the
Digital Compass/Thermometer Mode. In addition, you can take readings manually by
performing the procedure below.
• See “Digital Compass Precautions” for important information about using the digital
compass.
• You can calibrate the direction bearing if you think readings are wrong for some
reason.
• For a digital compass practical example, see “Using the Digital Compass While
Mountain Climbing or Hiking”.
To take a direction reading
1. While the watch is in the Digital Compass/Thermometer
Mode, place it on a flat surface, or if you are wearing
the watch, make sure that your wrist is horizontal (in
relation to the horizon).
2. Point the 12 o’clock position of the watch in the
direction you want to measure.
3. Press D to start a Digital Compass measurement
operation.
• After about two seconds, the direction that the 12
o’clock position of the watch is pointing appears on the

• The appearing on the display after a
direction reading is complete indicates that bearing
sensor calibration is required due to either of the
reasons described below. When this happens, perform
the procedure under “Calibrating the Bearing Sensor”.
• It’s been 100 days since the last bearing sensor
calibration.
• The watch’s battery was replaced.
• While the watch is taking compass readings, it displays
a direction angle and a direction indicator, all of which
change dynamically when the watch is moved. After the
compass operation is complete, the direction pointer
disappears from the display, and the direction angle and
direction indicator both show “- - -”. Use the direction
indicators imprinted on the bezel to record the indicated
direction. For details, see “Using the Digital Compass
While Mountain Climbing or Hiking”.
Note
• 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, countdown timer
alarm) or while illumination is turned on (by pressing B). The measurement
operation resumes for its remaining duration after the operation that caused it to
pause is finished.

Digital Compass Precautions
This watch features a built-in magnetic bearing sensor that detects terrestrial
magnetism. This means that north indicated by this watch is magnetic north, which is
somewhat different from true polar north. The magnetic north pole is located in
northern Canada, while the magnetic south pole is in southern Australia. Note that the
difference between magnetic north and true north as measured with all magnetic
compasses tends to be greater as one gets closer to either of the magnetic poles.You
also should remember that some maps indicate true north (instead of magnetic north),
and so you should make allowances when using such maps with this watch.
Location
• Taking a direction reading when you are near a source of strong magnetism can
cause large errors in readings. Because of this, you should avoid taking direction
readings while in the vicinity of the following types of objects: permanent magnets
(magnetic necklaces, etc.), concentrations of metal (metal doors, lockers, etc.), high
tension wires, aerial wires, household appliances (TVs, personal computers,
washing machines, freezers, etc.)
• Accurate direction readings are impossible while in a train, boat, air plane, etc.
• Accurate readings also are impossible indoors, especially inside ferro-concrete
structures. This is because the metal framework of such structures picks up
magnetism from appliances, etc.
Storage
• The precision of the bearing sensor may deteriorate if the watch becomes
magnetized. Because of this, you should be sure to store the watch away from
magnets or any other sources of strong magnetism, including: permanent magnets
(magnetic necklaces, etc.) and household appliances (TVs, personal computers,
washing machines, freezers, etc.)
• Whenever you suspect that the watch may have become magnetized, perform one
of the calibration procedures under “Calibrating the Bearing Sensor”.
Calibrating the Bearing Sensor
If you feel that direction readings being produced by the watch are not correct for
some reason, you can calibrate the bearing sensor to correct them.You can use either
of two methods to calibrate the bearing sensor: bearing sensor correction or magnetic
declination correction.
You also need to calibrate the bearing sensor if 100 days pass without calibration, and
after you have the watch’s battery replaced.The message will appear on
the display to remind you to calibrate.
• Bearing Sensor Correction
With bearing sensor correction, you rotate the watch in accordance with the
movement of an on-screen indicator. Doing this will recalibrate the magnetic sensor
of the watch with magnetic North for the area where you are located.
• Magnetic Declination Correction
With magnetic declination correction, you input a magnetic declination angle
(difference between magnetic north and true north), which allows the watch to
indicate true north.
You can perform this procedure when the magnetic declination angle is indicated on
the map you are using.
Note that you can input the declination angle in degree units only, so you may need
to round off the value specified on the map. If your map indicates the declination
angle as 7.4°, you should input 7°. In the case of 7.6° input 8°, for 7.5° you can input
7° or 8°.
To calibrate the bearing sensor
Rotate the watch in
accordance with the
movement of the
flashing indicator.

Using the Digital Compass While Mountain Climbing or Hiking
This section describes three real-life situations where you could use the watch’s built-
in digital compass.
• To set a map and find your current location
Having an idea of your current location is important when mountain climbing or
hiking. To do this, you need to “set the map”, which means to align the map so the
directions indicated on it are aligned with the actual directions of your location.
Basically what you are doing is aligning north on the map with north as indicated by
the watch.
• To find the bearing to an objective
To set a map and find your current location
1. With the watch on your wrist, position it so the face is
horizontal.
2. In the Timekeeping Mode, press D to take a compass
reading.
• The reading will appear on the display after about two
seconds.
3. Rotate the map without moving the watch so the
northerly direction indicated on the map matches north
as indicated by the watch.
• If the watch is configured to indicate magnetic north,
align the map’s magnetic north with the watch
indication. If the watch has been configured with a
declination to correct to true north, align the map’s
true north with the watch indication.
•This will position the map in accordance with your
current location.
4. Determine your location as you check the geographic
contours around you.

To find the bearing to an objective
1. Take a compass reading and then set the map so its
northerly indication is aligned with north as indicated by
the watch, and determine your current location.
• See “To set a map and find your current location” for
information about how to perform the above step.
2. Set the map so the direction you want to travel on the
map is pointed straight in front of you.
3. With the watch on your wrist, position it so the face is
horizontal.
4. In the Timekeeping Mode, press D to take a compass
reading.
• The reading will appear on the display after about two
seconds.
5. Still holding the map in front of you, turn your body until
north as indicated by the watch and the northerly
direction on the map are aligned.
• This will position the map relative to your current location, so the bearing to your
objective is straight ahead of you.

Questions & Answers
Question: What causes incorrect direction readings?
Answer:
• Nearby source of strong magnetism, such as a household appliance, a large steel
bridge, a steel beam, overhead wires, etc., or an attempt to perform direction
measurement on a train, boat, etc. Move away from large metal objects and try
again. Note that digital compass operation cannot be performed inside a train, boat,
etc.
Question: What causes different direction readings to produce different results
at the same location ?
Answer: Magnetism generated by nearby high-tension wires is interfering with
detection of terrestrial magnetism. Move away from the high-tension wires
and try again.
Question: Why am I having problems taking direction readings indoors ?
Answer: A TV, personal computer, speakers, or some other object is interfering with
terrestrial magnetism readings. Move away from the object causing the
interference or take the direction reading outdoors. Indoor direction readings
are particularly difficult inside ferro-concrete structures. Remember that you
will not be able to take direction readings inside of trains, airplanes, etc.

button operation tone is turned off.

Timekeeping
• Resetting the seconds to 00 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 00 without changing the minutes.
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears on the display for times in the
range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and no indicator appears for times in the range of
midnight to 11:59 a.m.
• With the 24-hour format, times are displayed in the range of 0:00 to 23:59, without
any indicator.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2099.
• The watch’s built-in full 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.
• The times for the Timekeeping Mode and all the city codes of the World Time Mode
are calculated in accordance with each city’s UTC offset.
• 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. Leap
seconds are added or subtracted as necessary to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s
rotation.
