GPS signal or time calibration signal auto receive will be performed if there has been no auto time adjustment based on connection between the watch and phone for more than one day.

Q2‏Auto time adjustment is performed, but the time setting is not correct.

Is auto time adjustment not being performed according to its normal schedule?

Note that auto time adjustment is not performed for 24 hours after swapping of the Home Time and World Time, or after the time setting is adjusted manually on the watch. Auto time adjustment will resume 24 hours after either of the above operations is performed.

The watch will not synchronize its time if you press (B) while a timer countdown operation is in progress. Wait until the timer countdown operation is complete and then press (B) again.

Q4‏Time is not displayed correctly.

The phone’s time setting may be incorrect because it is unable to connect with its network due to being out of range, etc. If this happens, connect the phone to its network and then adjust the time setting.

Alarms

Q1‏The alarm does not sound.

Is the watch’s battery charged?

Keep the watch exposed to light until it recharges sufficiently.

The crown is pulled out.

The alarm will not sound while the crown is pulled out. Push the crown back in to its normal position.

Is the alarm enabled?

Enable the alarm.

Home City and Latitude Indication

Q1‏The current Home City and/or latitude is not indicated when I press (B).

If the day of the week hand points to “N” after you press (B), it means that no location information was acquired during the last receive operation, so the Home City will not be shown by the indicator window. If this happens, pull out the crown to the second click. This will cause the indicator window to show the current Home City setting.

Q3‏All hands are stopped and buttons do not work.

The battery is dead. Keep the watch exposed to light until it recharges sufficiently.

Q4‏The hands suddenly start moving at high speed.

This is due to one of the reasons below, and does not indicate malfunction. Simply wait until normal hand movement resumes.

  • The watch is recovering from a power saving state.
  • The hands are moving to their new positions following a GPS signal or time calibration signal receive operation.
  • Establish a connection with the phone and correct the time setting.

Q5‏Hands are stopped and buttons do not work.

The watch is in the charge recovery mode. Wait until the recovery process is complete (for about 15 minutes). The watch will recover more quickly if you place it in a brightly lit location.

Q6‏Why is the current time indicated by the watch is off by a certain amount of time (nine hours, three hours and 15 minutes, etc.)?

The city setting is not correct. Select the correct setting.

Q7‏The current time indicated by the watch is off by one hour or 30 minutes.

The summer time setting is not correct. Select the correct setting.

Q8‏The hand and/or day indicator are not aligned correctly.

Strong magnetism or impact can cause the hands and/or the indicator to go out of alignment. Adjust hand and/or day indicator alignment.

Crown Operations

Q1‏Nothing happens when I rotate the crown.

If you do not perform any operation for about two minutes after pulling out the crown (approximately 30 minutes in the case of hand and day indicator alignment), crown operations will automatically become disabled. Push the crown back in to its normal position and then pull it out again to re-enable crown operations.
