Instructions

  1. 1

    Expose the face of your Casio Waveceptor watch to a source of bright natural or artificial light for at least one full day before the first use.

  2. 2

    Set the "Home City" on your Casio Waveceptor wrist watch so that your watch will receive the correct atomic time signal for your time zone. Hold down the top left button on your Waveceptor watch until the digits on the digital display begin flashing, indicating that you have entered the setting screen. Use the top and bottom buttons on the right side of the watch to highlight the "Home City" closest to your actual location. Press the top left button on the Waveceptor to make your selection and exit the time-setting screen. Wait a few moments for your watch to receive the radio-controlled time signal and set itself to the correct time.

  3. 3

    Perform a manual receive on your Casio Waveceptor watch if it has trouble receiving the radio-controlled time signal on its own. Lay your watch on a flat surface and turn the watch face towards a window that faces Fort Collins, Colorado. Press and hold the watch's bottom right button until you hear a beep. Release the button and watch for the "RC" message to appear on the digital display, indicating that the watch is searching for the correct signal. Note that it can take between 2 and 14 minutes for your watch to receive the atomic signal.

  4. 4

    Set an alarm on your Casio Waveceptor solar watch. Press the watch's bottom left button until the "AL1, AL2, AL3" message appears on the digital display, indicating that you have entered Alarm Mode. Press the bottom right button to select the alarm that you want to set. Hold the top left button until the alarm digits begin flashing. Use the top and bottom buttons on the right side of the watch to adjust the hours place to the desired value. Press the bottom left button to advance the flashing to the minutes place digits. Set them to the desired time using the buttons on the right side of the watch. Press the top left button to save your alarm and exit the alarm setting screen.

  5. 5

    Expose the solar cell on the face of your Casio Waveceptor to as much sunlight as possible during daily wear. For best results, wear your watch outside of your shirt sleeve to ensure that it is receiving the sunlight it needs to maintain a continual charge.

Tips and warnings

  • Turn on the watch's Power Save mode before storing you watch for long periods. Hold down the top left button until the Home City begins flashing on the digital display. Press the bottom left button 10 times. Use the bottom right button to turn the feature "On" or "Off." Press the top left button once more to exit the setting screen.
