In timekeeper mode and press D. "GET" and "8.31" flash in the upper right corner and "1:08" shows as the time. What's going on? Some kind of diagnostic?
I'm also new here on the forum, so maybe it's not my place to jump in with answers that long time users are better qualified and should be giving but feel sarcasm is more appropriate to their status. Ignore the detractors, ask your questions and join in the discussions. After all, Isnt that the point of fora?In timekeeper mode and press D. "GET" and "8.31" flash in the upper right corner and "1:08" shows as the time. What's going on? Some kind of diagnostic?
Thanks.Novio is spot on, your watch is telling you the last time and date that it managed to 'GET' an atomic time signal.
Assuming it's a new watch, the time might be set based on the local time at the factory.
Make sure your home city is set correctly (so the watch knows which transmitter to look for) and it will automatically try to sync in the early hours of the morning, because the signal is stronger at night.
If you follow the instructions to sync manually and manage to get level 2 or 3 signal strength, it should sync during the day and RCVD will appear on the screen as confirmation.
RCVD means that the watch successfully picked up the signal within the last 24 hours.
I found it much easier to get to play around with the watch after reading the watch. Plus next time you have a deeper understanding of how the functions work which may be to your advantage.I searched for "GET." No result. The only other option was to read the entire manual, cover to cover, in the hope I find it.
