Animation area Day
A backlight that uses an EL (electro-luminescent) panel causes the entire display to glow for easy reading in the dark. Depending on the mode, pressing E or B turns on the backlight for about three seconds. See the sections that cover each mode for information on whether you should press E or B. â¢ The backlight of the watch employs an electro-luminescent (EL) light, which loses illuminating power after very long use. â¢ The illumination provided by the backlight may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight. â¢ The watch will emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is caused by a transformer that vibrates when the EL panel lights up. It does not indicate malfunction of the watch. â¢ The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
