Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch.
The measurement functions built into this watch are not intended for taking
measurements that require professional or industrial precision. Values produced
by this watch should be considered as reasonable representations only.
• Note that CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. assumes no responsibility for any
damage or loss suffered by you or any third party arising through the use of
this product or its malfunction.
• To ensure correct direction readings by this watch, be sure to perform
bidirectional calibration before using it. The watch may produce incorrect
direction readings if you do not perform bidirectional calibration. For more
information, see “To perform bidirectional calibration” (page E-36).
• Keep the watch away from audio speakers, magnetic necklace, cell phone,
and other devices that generate strong magnetism. Exposure to strong
magnetism can magnetize the watch and cause incorrect direction readings. If
incorrect readings continue even after you perform bidirectional calibration, it
could mean that your watch has been magnetized. If this happens, contact
your original retailer or an authorized CASIO Service Center.
