LED is "light emitting diode." It works by lighting up small points of light.

LCD is "liquid crystal display." It works by reflecting ambient light.

In general LCDs use less electricity than LEDs but can respond slower.

LEDs can be used in the dark because they create their own light. LCDs cannot unless they have a backlight to light up the backside of the display.

As for recommending one over the other, that depends too much on other factors. What do you intend to do with it? What kind of environment are you going to be in (A well-lit room or a darker one? Facing a window? Is there a window behind you?)? Also, personal preference plays a big part.

Your eyesight is a valuable resource. Make sure YOU are comfortable with whatever display you ultimately choose. It doesn't matter whether I'm comfortable with it, or some reviewer is comfortable with it. If YOU aren't comfortable with it, get something else.

The Casio Forester FT500WVB watch has an EL (Electroluminescent) backlight and requires one silver oxide button battery. The SR621W battery (also known as type 363) is recommended by the instruction manual for the watch. Note the suffix "W" means this battery is a high drain type which is suitable for powering a watch mechanism and the EL light as well for 2 to 3 years, depending on use of the light. "SW" suffix batteries are low drain and are intended only to power a watch mechanism, and not a light. Note also the "SR" prefix indicates the battery is silver oxide and not lithium. The SR type batteries do not use mercury and are therefore safer to dispose of when they are discharged. I have found the type SR626W (also known as type 377) battery is also suitable for the FT500WVB watch and it has more stored power and should therefore last longer.

Last, the Casio Forrester FT500WC looks exactly like the FT500WVB, but it is a different watch internally. The FT500WC has an LED light and requires two batteries- the SR920SW low drain silver oxide battery which powers the watch mechanism and the CR1616 lithium battery which powers the LED. The LED is brighter than an EL light and stays on longer than the EL light when activated. But the LED has a bright dot light source that some might find annoying.

Dear Sirs: I bought my Vizio Computer at in Carson City, Nevada. However when installing it. I found that the Catalog for operations id missing. Would you be so0 kind as to mail me a copy of the Handbook :...

The support page for Vizio offers a link to manuals. I am unsure if the company continued to supply physical manuals, a matter you could query about to the customer service. If possible, have your receipt for the computer handy. If you were supposed to get a manual, chances are you will need to show when and where you bought it.

Cant set digital time and date and alarm, downloaded manual but does not work

There is a reset procedure for most LCD watches to reset the LCD after installing the battery. It is different for every watch brand and movement (inner works). I recommend visiting your local Certified Master Horologist for proper battery and resetting procedure.

Improperly resetting any digital watch by shorting the wrong connection can essentially short out the movement, and the movement / watch must then be replaced, whichever is least expensive.

How do i change the battery in my reebok heart monitor watch?

We recommend all batteries to be changed my a Certified Watch Technician / Certified Master Horologist.

Screws, springs, and the like are easily lost and make the watch unusable; we see this on a day to day basis. There is a specific reset procedure shorting certain connections that must be used to reset the watch and memory; each watch is different and they have different procedures.

Almost all watch manufacturers recommend this same advice on their websites.

Also, if the watch is water resistant, and it is worn in the pool, shower, or ever immersed- the gaskets must be checked and replaced at certain points in the watch's life. This is done with pressure test equipment to ensure that the watch functions appropriately at certain static and dynamic pressures.

I have a mio euorfit heart monitor watch. During my workout I

Yes, you definetely need battery replacement.
As the hart rate monitoring is most sophisticated part of the device, it has more IC (Integrated Circuits) than any other features.
More IC's means more power is needed, so, if the heart rate monitor is starting to malfunction, that's the very first sign of underpowered battery.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement.

Do not forget to rate, please.

no it shouldnt be cause the heart rate would be based off your pulse

im not a heart specialist but ive had my share of heart polups and a faulty valve in my heart
i was told by my doctor that the heart rate is monitored by bloodpreasure threw the veins pulse so i dont think that the size of the watch would make a difference this is in my opinion based off my own docs words hes the doc what can i say

but recommend that you speak with your doctor about heart monitor watches they know more indepth about these devices or your local pharmacy

i hope this helped you out
