Why are direction readings incorrect? What does it mean when a clock figure appears on the watch display when I try to take a compass reading?
Compass readings and compass calibration will not be possible if the watch is in the vicinity of a permanent magnet (magnetic accessory, etc.), metal objects, high-voltage wires, aerial wires, or electrical appliances (TV, computer, cellphone, etc.)
Also, magnetization guidance may appear on the display after the charger cable is connected to the watch, or in a location where there is strong magnetism. If it does, move your arm around so the face of the watch randomly points forward, back, up, down, left, and right a number of times until the guidance disappears from the display. For serious mountain climbing and other activities that require accurate bearing readings, take along a highly reliable compass to use in combination with the watch's compass.
