I bought this watch today. set the time the way the manual told me to. It's not starting. It says that it's powered by arm movement, but I'm not sure how that works. Is it just supposed to be worn and then eventually it will start telling time? Also, if it stops moving, will it stop working?
You have to wind the watch manually after you buy it. there should be a little knob at about 3 o'clock. Turn it clockwise about 40 times. Make sure you wear it enough (8 hours a day) or else you have to wind it every day like this

if the watch as not been worn for a long time it's best to wind it by hand first to get it started, just make sure the winder is pushed all the way in and then just keep winding it clockwise till it start going..

I see that you cannon watch is not ticking even after you have set the time.
Well after you set the time you push the knob back in once the time is set right then the watch should start ticking that instant.
If the watch is not ticking at all then it is either a damaged watch or the watch sold to you may not have batteries on it.
can you give me a model and info regarding the watch maybe we can get information or a manual about the watch for further checking before considering it to be broken.
Also if you can try calling or going back to where you purchased the watch maybe they give you details on why it will not click since you just bought it I believe they will assist you if it may need replacing.
do not pull the stem all the way just half way out. Turn clock wises the date should move. move to correct date. counter clock wises for the day. For the analog hold down the set mode button until it starts to blinking to change number with the start and stop. to change what is blinking press the mode button
Watches fall into two basic categories - quartz and mechanical. If you bought a quartz watch that is battery powered you need to set the watch and push the crown in all the way to start the watch. Sometimes you need to remove a small plastic piece from the stem to push it in all the way. If you bought a mechanical watch, even if it is an automatic self-winding model, you will need to manually wind it to get it started. If you are still having problems take it back tot he dealer for a demonstration or to have the battery replaced if required. An instruction sheet and warranty card is packaged with almost all new watches. Sorry I can't be more specific but if you care to share the make and model number I may be able to help you further.
I think I figured it out:
(Start + Reset) = toggle alarm on/off ("ALM" will display in upper left corner when alarm is on.
(press Mode once) will bring you in chrono mode, where "start" button starts and stops the chrono, and "reset" button resets it back to zero
(press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for alarm. Set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly
(press Mode once more) will bring you to setting of time for actual time. Reset the "Seconds" value to zero by pressing "start" button once, then press "reset" and set the "minute" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "hour" value by pressing "start" repeatedly (if it shows "H" in upper right corner, time will be displayed euro-style 0:00-23:59, if it shows "A" time will be displayed 12am/12pm), then press "reset" and set the "day of month" value by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "month" value (1-12) by pressing "start" repeatedly, then press "reset" and set the "day of week" value (Su-Sa) by pressing "start" repeatedly
(press Mode once more) voila!
I had the same problem following recent daylight savings time (DST) change. The watch has three DST mode settings (ON, OFF, and AUTO). You get to the setting mode by pressing and holding the "adjust' button until the city time zone indicator starts to flash. Then press the "mode" button. This should give you the DST setting. Now press the "receive" button to cycle through the ON, OFF, and AUTO modes for DST. I set it for AUTO. I then existed the setting mode by pressing "adjust" again.
Now you can initiate a manual update of the time by pressing and holding the receive button. Put your watch by a window and make sure the signal strength indication is showing level 4 (full picture of satellite dish on my version). Give it a few minutes to down load new time.
After doing this the watch corrected itself and now shows correct time. Other wise I assume you could set the DST function to ON or OFF as well depending on whether you need to add or subtract the hour from the time.
If you dial in the date before noon make sure you stop winding the crown right after the date flips. That will give the internal mechanism the most room to cycle and not flip at noon. If you are setting it after noon wind the crown just until the date you want starts to move to the following date, but stop immediately after so as to not flip over. That way the mechanism will be close to changing the date and should flip it at midnight. Make sense? Hopefully, good luck.
