About a function and performance

Is the watch affected by magnetism?
• Though a digital watch normally is not affected by magnetism, very strong magnetism (from medical equipment, etc.) should be avoided because it can cause malfunction and damage to electronic components.

• The hands of analog and combination (analog-digital) watches are moved by a motor that uses magnetic force. When such a watch is close to a device (audio speakers, magnetic necklace, cell phone, etc.) that emits strong magnetism, the magnetism can cause timekeeping to slow down, speed up, or stop, resulting in the incorrect time being displayed.
