Question about Citizen BL717459L Watch
I have a brand new Citizen BL717459L watch, but the alarm sound is too low. Is it a defect or is there any setting to increase the sound violume? I didn't remove the plastic protector at the back of the watch. Can it affect the sound volume? Would appreciate any help. ... Thanks in advance.
No, there is nothing wrong with the alarm in your watch.
The sound in all watches are generated by passing vibrations to the metal tweeter which is connected to the watch caseback inside the watch. As the surface of the watch is quite small, there is not efficient power to spred the vibrations over the caseback surface, hence low volume of the alarm. No wristwatch in the world is capable of loud alarm sound yet. This is something the scientists have to work with.
The plastic protector is definetly affecting the volume. Take it off and you will notice slightly better sound. This protector actually is ment to protect watch caseback from scratches prior to selling it to the customer and have no use after that. In fact it only collects the dirt and bacteria and can affect your skin as the caseback as well.
Another sound improvement can be the new battery if the original is underpowered. Alarm feature uses the most of the energy stored in battery and the power consumption is higher than all watch movement parts put together.
