    Looks like it's a design flaw. consider yourselves "lucky" if you're getting a display for 7 seconds.
    I only get 4 seconds (or less).

    I spoke with Casio's Tech Support and was told that "that is just the way the watch is designed--for the compass to be displayed for 2 seconds."

    I don't believe that for a minute, but that's the claptrap I was fed, When I told her that I considered that a fatal flaw that makes the watch a virtually useless piece of junk, her only response was the verbal equivalent of a shrug.

To fix this, hold down the A button for 4 seconds. this allows you to recalibrate the home position of the second hand. My secondo hand was posting exactly 90 degrees west in compass mode, and this home position recalibration fixed it 100 percent.

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.

Just got my husband a casio pro trek sgw100-1 - we calibrated the compass but east and west are switched - north and south are fine - any ideas? thx


As a pure shot in the dark, are you sure that you calibrated it so that it was pointing to the north when it should be and not to south?

If it was pointing south instead of north, then East and West would be reversed.

Sounds a bit daft but better than the directions of east and west changing?

Check your calibration perhaps?

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.
