Calibrating the Compass Manually


Calibrate the electronic compass outdoors. To improve heading accuracy, do not stand near objects that influence magnetic fields, such as vehicles, buildings, and overhead power lines.

Your watch was already calibrated at the factory, and the watch uses automatic calibration by default. If you experience irregular compass behavior, for example, after moving long distances or after extreme temperature changes, you can manually calibrate the compass.

  1. Hold MENU.
  2. Select Sensors & Accessories > Compass > Calibrate > Start.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
    TIP: Move your wrist in a small figure eight motion until a message appears.
