You will probably find the instructions for your watch here: http://www.buydakotawatches.com/Instructions.aspx
There are a few variations of this watch on the above page otherwise I would have posted the exact instructions.

    That link you posted is a dead link. I have the DW7560-7 and I still can not find a manual anywhere.

SOURCE: Auriol watch (Alti, compass etc)need to reset time

Indeed. Here's what to do:
Press and hold all the buttons together eg. Light, Mode, Sel and Set (prob best to take off your wrist at this point), and hold for approx 1 second. The watch will give a shrill beep!
The watch face looks like its gone back to factory reset, but stick with it. Scroll through the mode and you will see the date and month (and all other settings) are stored from previous time. Just advance the time using the Select button and voila!

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.

I have a tcm 217362 watch with a digital compass how can i set it up to show me north it currently shows cal. and when i press the top right and left button it shows err.(probably error) it is a black and...


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.

How do I rest the time for daylights savings


Given that it is truly a Radio Controlled watch, which it must be considering your description, it should reset itself tomorrow morning (November 1st). I would give it a day to change before becoming concerned. Again, your radio controlled watch should reset itself around 2 or 6 am on November 1st.

How to set the compass


Throw it in the bin, find any old analogue watch, set the right time and point the hour hand at the sun. Bisect the angle between the hour hand and the 12-o-clock position on your watch and that line points due south - if you're in the northern hemisphere - or due north if you're an Australian. For night navigation, find the Pole star, just up from the 'big dipper', then off you go...

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.

Compass dial turned opposite direction


you might be able to reverse the poles back to normal with a magnet but be careful not to scratch face or get it closer than you need to to the insides of the watch.
