Acquiring GPS Position Information Manually

You can use a button operation to acquire GPS location information and adjust your Home City, time, and day settings in accordance with your current location.

Getting ready

Enter the Timekeeping Mode.


1.Move to a location appropriate for signal reception and orient the watch so its display is pointed straight up at the sky.

2.Hold down (B) for at least 1.5 seconds. Release the button as soon as the second hand points to “T(TIME)”.

  • The second hand will move in the following sequence: “Y(YES)” or “N(NO)” arrowR “T(TIME)”.

3.Press (B).

This will cause the second hand to move to “T+P”, indicating that location information acquisition has started. The position of the second hand during reception will depend on the current reception conditions.

  • If location information acquisition is successful, the second hand will move to “Y(YES)” and then the watch will automatically adjust its time and day settings. The watch will display the acquired Home City and the day of the week hand will indicate the approximate latitude of your current location.
  • If position information acquisition fails for some reason, the second hand will move to “N(NO)” and then the watch will indicate the current time and day without adjusting them.
