The compass on myTimex WS4 fails to calibrate. Have tried removing the battery and resetting everything but still no joy. Is the any other way to calculate the compass?


There is a process to make an all reset. After the reset try again. The user user manual can be downloaded from Timex. Make very sure the watch is absolutely flat and far from metal objects. Even being near most furniture can effect the reading because they can have metal springs. Many homes have a lot of metal in their construction. It's best to calibrate the compass out doors away from power wires or cars or anything metal. On the street you can have metal under the pavement.

If this does not work call Timex. There have been instances where the compass module or sensor had to be changed. I have the same watch. It's a very good one.

Calibrate timberland watch


  1. The buttons on your watch have 3 positions: the normal position I will call "A", pulled out once "B", and pulled out twice "C"
  2. Turn the upper button to "COMPASS" and pull it out to the "C" position and select your your declination angle. Declination Angle reference chart: http://lh3.ggpht.com/_XhazifOyjUc/S5VCL88i9GI/AAAAAAAAAF8/kaEksl600tU/image_thumb%5B2%5D.png?imgmax=800
  3. Adjust the upper button to the "B" position and place the watch on a flat surface.
  4. Leaving the watch flat, carefully rotate the watch two full rotations at a rate of 15 seconds per rotation.
  5. Press the upper button to the "A" position.
  6. You're watch's compass is now calibrated.
  7. Always double check the calibration before choosing to depend on it

I have a tcm 217362 watch with a digital compass how can i set it up to show me north it currently shows cal. and when i press the top right and left button it shows err.(probably error) it is a black and...


Hi john30x,

You have to calibrate the compass.
1. Press the upper right button (switching to compass mode)
2. Press and hold upper left button. The "CALL" will appear on the display. You are in compass calibrating mode.
3. Rotate the watch horizontally (around his vertical axis) slowly, so to be sure that he point the North at least 2 times.
4. Now press the upper left button again to input the
declination (this is the angle between the magnetic and real pole). It is different for the area around the world, that you want to explore.
5. Switch between the positions of the cipher by pressing bottom left.
6. Change the cipher by pressing bottom right.
7.
Switch between the active position by pressing bottom left. Now you have to enter East or West declination
8. If you are ready press the upper left. "END" of calibration will appear on the screen

Once you calibrate and set the declination you can use the the compass by pressing upper right button. As the compass is very sensitive It is good idea to calibrate it on a field, far away of metal objects and electromagnetic fields (cables, ect.). You need to calibrate the compass each time you want to use it by different surrounding.

Remember the compass function of your watch need much more energy than the watch itself. Don`t worry to change the battery when dead. The water resistance remains good even after. Very robust and accurate device. I hope that should help.

2 Answers

No instruction manual


For Compass Adjustment search on Google or FixYa

For Temperature calibration:
1. Pull the crown to most extended position (2 notches)
2. Temp hand moves to a default position
3. Move hand in + or - direction by pressing temp or tide buttons (above and below crown button)
4. When done, push crown to 0 position
(I used melting ice water to calibrate and fix to 0 deg C)

For Tide calibration:
1. Pull crown to middle position (1 notch)
2. Move hand in + or - direction by pressing temp or tide buttons (above and below crown button)
3. When done, push crown to 0 position

Hope this helps

I lost my owner's manual for my Casio SGW-100B. When I try to use the compass it asks me to please calibrate


Above link no longer valid. Here's the current one:
http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/wat/en/qw3157.pdf

Also, the key was inputting the correct #, in this case 3157 - NOT the 100B - at the following page:
http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/
I had almost given up when I looked again at the back of my watch and found the other number.
