There are two three-bar displays on this watch.
The three in the top left will always show only one bar (or possibly no bars).  The top left indicates the level of charge in the battery and not the atomic receive function.
The three in the bottom right are related to receiving.  The atomic receive is controlled from settings.  With the time displayed, hold down the ADJUST button for several seconds.  Once the timezone name (e.g. LAX) starts flashing at the top, release the ADJUST button and press MODE once to get to the DST control. Press MODE again to get to the Atomic receive control.  Use the receive button to switch ON->OFF->ON... Press ADJUST twice to exit settings mode.

I have a one year old berenger atomic time watch that has stopped working last week. May I perhaps need to get a new battery/ What does radio controlled watch mean? Thanks


I would try replacing the battery in your watch to see if it comes back to life. So-called "atomic watches" have tiny radio receivers in them that periodically listen for the official atomic time being broadcast via WWVB in Colorado. However, as you might imagine, it takes a lot more power to operate a radio receiver than it does to power a typical quartz wristwatch, and even with larger-capacity or double batteries, it's been my experience that these watches burn through batteries more quickly than traditional "set them yourself" watches.
An additional factor is that a watch that cannot find the WWVB signal will scan for long periods of time before putting its radio receiver into hibernate mode. So, if your watch has been stored in a basement, an interior room in a large building, or some other place where a radio signal can't penetrate, that would also shorten the watch's battery life.

How to set the wr330 watch lost instructions.


On the face of the watch, there are four buttons arranged around the circle of the watch face in four positions. Starting with the upper left hand button (labelled SET), and working clockwise around the face of the watch (to ADJ., EL, and MODE), I'll label the buttons "A", "B", "C", and "D".

In other words...
Button "A" is the button labelled "SET" in the upper left hand corner of the watch.
Button "B" is the button labelled "ADJ." in the upper right hand corner of the watch.
Button "C" is the button labelled EL in the lower right hand corner of the watch.
Button "D" is the button labelled "MODE" in the lower left hand corner of the watch.

Setting the Time.
1. Press and hold D as if you were setting the alarm. As above, the stopwatch will momentarily appear and then after 2 seconds the alarm time will appear with the hour flashing.
2. Press and release D and the seconds on the time of day will begin to flash.
3. Press and release B to reset the seconds to zero provided they are below 30. If they are above 30, the seconds will reset and the minutes of the time of day will advance by one.
4. Press and release A to change from flashing seconds to flashing minutes/flashing hours/flashing day of the month/flashing month of the year/flashing day of the week. In each flashing mode, pressing and releasing B advances the value by one unit.
5. Press and release D to exit time setting mode.

I had the same problem with the watch my wife bought me. On the mode make sure it doesn;t say T2 in the top right hand corner. if it does you are in the wrong mode. Hit the mode button until it shows the day of the week highlighted and a date and then go through the normal time set procedures. That worked for me.

The "mode" button is there to change the function of the + & - buttons.

If you press the mode button several times you will cycle through the various setting features of the clock.

Look for the one that sets the time zone and use the + or - buttons to select your zone.

Some experimentation may be required!

How do you set the time on a casio g shock watch????????


I had the same problem following recent daylight savings time (DST) change. The watch has three DST mode settings (ON, OFF, and AUTO). You get to the setting mode by pressing and holding the "adjust' button until the city time zone indicator starts to flash. Then press the "mode" button. This should give you the DST setting. Now press the "receive" button to cycle through the ON, OFF, and AUTO modes for DST. I set it for AUTO. I then existed the setting mode by pressing "adjust" again.

Now you can initiate a manual update of the time by pressing and holding the receive button. Put your watch by a window and make sure the signal strength indication is showing level 4 (full picture of satellite dish on my version). Give it a few minutes to down load new time.

After doing this the watch corrected itself and now shows correct time. Other wise I assume you could set the DST function to ON or OFF as well depending on whether you need to add or subtract the hour from the time.

Atomic watch


You most likely don't have the Daylight Savings Time (DST) set to AUTO mode. Just hold the ADJUST button until the time starts blinking. Then hit MODE and DST will show on the top. Hit RECEIVE as needed until you see AUTO in the bottom. Then just hit ADJUST 2 more times and you're set.

These instructions are actually for my Casio G-Shock MTG-900 but I imagine they're very similar for most G-Shock atomic watches.

seems pretty extensive.
you either need to set your time manually if you are not automatically receiving the atomic signal. if you are receiving the signal, then either you are not in auto DST mode or your home city is set incorrectly.
