Re: Compass wont work correctly

If your hands aren't straight when you use the compass try this to sync the hands.

1. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode.
2. Press the centre area on the face twice to display 24hr/12hr
3. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode untill screen says sync.The hands will face 1200.
4. Press either the upper (East) or lower (West) button to adjust the compass hands. They should both face 1200.
5. Press the middle button to get back to 'regular' compass mode. Note that your offset setting will still show in the digital area.

Re: Compass wont work correctly

From plain old time-telling mode:

1. Press the middle button to enter T-Touch mode.
2. Press the compass area on the face (6 O'Clock)
3. Press and hold either the upper (East) or lower (West) button to adjust the offset for the compass. The display will read 'degrees' of offset and the hands will move as you change the offset to whatever is appropriate for your area of the world.
4. Press the middle button to get back to 'regular' compass mode. Note that your offset setting will still show in the digital area.

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.

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.
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.

I have a Timex e-tide with compass, temp and tide functions. The compass no longer points north and will randomly point in any direct when activated, is there a way to re-calibrate the compass?

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

Hope this tip helps

How do you calibrate the compass for a Lacross XG-55 wrist watch

Here is the manual for your watch. It tells you how to calibrate the compass. Print out the manual and keep for future reference.

Good luck. Did this help you?

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:

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

Compass is no longer pointing North

I had the same issue. I found that if you re-calibrate the compass the same way you did the first time, then it will act properly. I've had to do this a couple of times and it works.

The integrated compass tells you the direction (e.g.SSW for south­southwest) as well as the number of degrees. To determine a direc­tion,hold the watch horizontally with the 12 o'clock position poin­ting in thedirection you want to know.
General information about the compass
The compass always points to the magnetic north pole.Maps are always drawn in alignment with the geographic north pole (verticallyupwards at 90 ). The declination angle denotes the deviation between themagnetic north pole and the geographic north pole. This deviation depends onwhere you are located. To obtain exact results, the declination angle must beentered into the compass.Remember to change the angle when travelling abroad.Within the UKthere is no need to change the angle because deviati­ons are only slight.Overleaf you will find a table showing the declination angles for a number ofcities around the world.A fault has occurred if the display shows"ERR" while taking a direction or calibrating the compass. Thecompass must be re-calibrated (refer to section after next) .
