Dear Members of the G-Shock Forum,
After lurking around for five or more years, I have found something that maybe is worth reporting.
I have used a G-7710 for the last five years. It is in its second battery (the first lasted four and a half years),
we go together to the sea, to the swimming pool, bath together, bath my child, cook, travel, wakes me up every days since I bought it, painted
the house with it, teach with it. I occasionally cheat it with a GW-3000 i bought for myself (but don't find as comfortable as my trusty 7710).
So the thing is, remembering that old digitals reset when all pushers were pushed simultaneously, I decided to check what the behavior of my 7710 would
be in that case. Nothing happened, but I discovered something that to the best of my knowledge is not documented in the manual nor in the web.
I decided to call it "an Easter Egg" in reference to what happens with software having an undocumented functionality. The following steps (with pictures) show what I have found:
In HT mode, press Adjust-Mode-Start Stop pushers (in that order altogether) to get this screen:
: Press Start-Stop pusher to get this other screen:
Press the Start-Stop pusher to get this screen (it shows the module number, that is 3095):
Tilt the watch to test Auto EL
: Press the Adjust pusher to test the red diode:
Press the Mode pusher to test the green diode:
Push the Start-Stop button to return to HT (that is, normal mode operation).
Hope this might be of interest to you.
