WHEN I GO DIVING HE DOESNT VANT TO SAVE DEPTH INTO


Perhaps you have not instructed it to start recording?

I cannot gain access to the instructions for you watch as the site require me to enter the watch number.

If you have not got the instructions, go to "casio.com", select "support" , then "manuals", then "watches"; agree terms and conditions; select "archive...".

Enter the number off the back of your watch and download instructions.

can i dive with this watch?


You definetely CAN NOT dive with this watch. It is good for swimming and snorkeling only. Real divers watches withstand at least 200 meters of depths and are specialy designed for it.
One of the best affordable divers watch manufacturers novadays is Seiko. Check Seiko website and learn about divers watches and all the features they have. List of waterproof markings and explanations are also available.
Do not forget to rate, please.

how to set a invicta 3443 watch up


To set the time pull the crown out to the first position and set the time by turning the crown. Pull the crown out to the second position to set the date. Since this is a diver model you will need to unscrew the crown before it will pull out. Make sure you replace the crown and screw it back down for a good protective seal.

The alarm sets the same way. Unscrew the button to set.
