TALKING ATOMIC WATCH INSTRUCTIONS
Your Analog Talking Watch is a Multi-Band Radio Controlled watch. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) radio station, WWVB, located in Ft. Collins, Colorado, continuously broadcasts the time signal at 60 KHz. This signal can be received up to 2,000 miles away, anywhere in the continental USA where long wave (AM) radio reception is possible. The WWVB station derives its signal from the NIST Atomic Clock in Boulder, CO. Your Atomic Watch automatically adjusts for daylight saving time.
BEFORE YOUR FIRST TIME USING IT, SET YOUR TIME ZONE!
AFTER YOU HAVE SET YOUR TIME ZONE FOR THE FIRST TIME, Please wait WHILE the clock hands are automatically spinning. The watch is setting the correct time. Your watch will resume running with the correct time automatically when the second hand stops spinning fast. You will not be able to use any other function while the watch is setting itself. THE TIME FRAME THAT THIS MIGHT TAKE CAN NOT BE CONSISTENTLY DETERMINED. This process could take as long as 20 minutes, but depending on your location in the United States, it could be either shorter or longer.
Time Zone Setting:

To receive the correct time you first need to set your Time Zone:
1. Hold THE BUTTON POSITIONED AT 8 o’clock for more than 5 seconds until the watch says “Set Alarm, Press THE 10 o’clock button to set”
2. PUSH THE button at the 8:00 position, another 3 times in a row, until the watch says “Time Zone Setting. Press THE button at the 10 o’clock position, to set”

While the watch is in normal running mode:
1. Press and hold the 10 o’clock button until the second hand stops at the 7 o’clock position.

Note: This process stops the watch from talking, so you may seek sighted assistance during this setting phase.
Manual Time Setting:

You should use this function if traveling to countries with no signal reception. You must also set correct time of day (AM/PM) and time zone when you come back from traveling to other countries.
1. hold the 8 o’clock button for more than 5 seconds until the watch says “Set Alarm, Press 10 o’clock button to set”
2. Push 8 o’clock button 4 more times, until the watch says, “Set time. Press 10 o’clock button to set”

4. the watch says, “Press 2 o’clock button to set Hour, 4 o’clock button for minutes, 8 o’clock button to confirm”
5. Press 2 o’clock button to set Hour. Listen very carefully to watch to make sure the right AM or PM has been set (if you set the wrong AM/PM your watch will not be able to pick up signal at 3:00AM).
6. Press 4 o’clock button to set Minute.
7. Press 8 o’clock button to confirm after you have set the Time.
8. After confirmation, the watch will automatically run to the time you have set. Wait until the watch stops running fast.
Your watch is not able to manually set Day, Month, and Year. The watch provides this information only when a first signal reception is received.
Troubleshooting:

Your watch is a very delicate and precise instrument. Although uncommon, sometimes hard knocks or vibrations can cause the hands to move irregularly, and therefore displays the incorrect time, although the internal clock is keeping accurate time. If when doing a “manual signal reception” (press and hold the 10 o’clock button until the second hand stops) the second-hand does not pause exactly at the 7 o’clock reference point (half second deviation is acceptable), the second-hand needs to be re-calibrated.
Re-calibrate the shifted second-hand:

1. Make sure the watch is running normally.
2. Hold 8 o’clock button for more than 5 seconds until the watch says “Set alarm, Press 10 o’clock button to set.”
3. Push 8 o’clock button 5 more times until the watch says “Second-Hand Alignment, Press 10 o’clock to set.”
4. Press the 10 o’clock button. Watch says, “Press 2 o’clock button to set, 8 o’clock button to confirm.”
5. Keep an eye on the second-hand as it moves to a new position and stops somewhere before 6 o’clock position then immediately press 2 o’clock button repeatedly until the second-hand points exactly down at 6 o’clock position. Press 8 o’clock button to confirm. (The watch will stop for a while. Just wait until the watch resumes normal running).
6. If the second hand stops advancing before it reaches 6 o’clock position repeat steps 2 through 5 until the second-hand points to exactly 6 o’clock.
7. The second hand is re-calibrated.
Note: This process may require obtaining sighted assistance.
Watch Not Receiving Time Signal:

Reasons for not being able to receive the Time Signal include:

-Being outside of the United States
-Being in a built up area
-Metal objects blocking the radio signal
-Interference from computer monitor or TV
Depending on your location in the United States, if east of Colorado, you must locate a west facing window. If west of Colorado, you must locate an East facing window.
Ensure that the watch is set by a window, as this provides the best reception; you may have to try different windows in the house to see which is best. Please not that reception is always better at night. If your watch is unable to receive the radio signal, it will continue to function in the same way as a standard watch. The time will then be corrected the next time your watch receives the time signal.
Battery Replacement:

This watch uses a CR2025 type battery; trained jewelers or watch specialists should replace the batteries to avoid damage to the watch.
1. Open and carefully remove the back of the watch.
2. Lift up the battery spring on the right.
3. Remove the battery and insert a new one with the polarity “+” facing up.
4. Push the battery spring down.
5. Before you replace the case-back, make sure the seal is in place.
The watch does not run after a new battery is replaced until the following initiation has been done:

Set the hands and initialize the electronics.
All hands (hour, minute, and second-hands) have to be moved to the 12 o’clock position (12:00:00) to initialize after battery change. The watch will not run until re-initialized.
1. Immediately after battery has been replaced hold 2 o’clock button until the hands move quickly. You can stop the fast movement by pressing 2 o’clock button again.
2. Stop the fast movement before the second-hand reaches the 12 o’clock position (11:58:00) by pressing the 2 o’clock button.
3. Adjust the second- hand one-second at a time to move it to the 12 o’clock position (12:00:00) by pressing 2 o’clock button. (If you accidentally go past the 12, start this process again.)
4. When all hands are aligned at the 12 o’clock position (12:00:00), PUSH 10 o’clock button for 1 second to confirm.
5. After confirmation, follow the procedure below after the watch resumes running:
a. Set your watch to the correct Time Zone.
b. Set your Local Time manually (go to Manual Time Setting for details). You don’t need to set the exact minute and second but make sure HOUR and AM/PM are correct. You watch will synchronize to the Atomic clock after it receives the signal (the reason to set time is to make sure your watch will initiate signal reception at around 3AM local time.)
c. Put the watch in a location where reception is possible. The watch will automatically initiate a reception at 3AM. After receiving a valid time signal, the hands will move on the correct time.
