Digi-tech Watch Setting Instructions

Digi-tech Uhr Bedienungs Anleitung

http://www.berklix.com/~jhs/txt/watch/digi-tech/

By Julian H. Stacey

Introduction / Einleitung

  • This is a bilingual page, English & German .
    Zwei Sprachen Seite: English & Deutsch
  • Font Colours:
    • Default foreground colour of browser (usually Black):
      English.
      The original instructions I typed in from paper were in German, but I guess as this watch doubtless came from Asia for a world market, the primary language was some Asian, then translated into common English, then translated again from English into German, & not done well, so I've tried to correct, not merely retranslated back to English.
    • Brown / Braun + Italics / Schraeg- Shrift : German / Deutsch.
    • Green: Another Watch (In English) : Kenko Alarm Chrono KK-661 Super Protection Works somewhat similarly. The paper docs show the same knobs layout as Digi-tech, but the actual watch face & knobs function have swapped the left 2 knobs (some at least of the functions on the right 1 also seem as if they're swapped, though I've stuck to their nomenclature). I didn't copy in Kenko wording.

Commentary / Kommentar

Setting this watch was a pig (& watch often needs it as knobs protrude, often pushed accidentally), as:
  • The small paper leaflet is small font, hard to read, expecially at night in bad light.
  • I covered paper in plastic to protect it, now it doesn't scan well to expand.
  • I can not find a manual on web (can't even find a Digi-tech watch manufacturer, just some music company).
  • Paper is written in bad German, mis-spelt in original, seems to have been translated (from Asian to German or perhaps Asian to English back to German?) (& German's a hard language to read anyway, with horrible long word concatenations in original with no spaces (eg Zifferblattbeleuchtung, Zeitablaufmessung), etc.
So I typed it in, then deliberately broke up the horribly long German words (with no spaces or hyphens) & hyphenated them. Words in English are mine.
Their labelling (on paper instructions) of knobs as A B C D was less intuitive than on both physical watch faces + Kenko paper labelling as L (Light), M (Mode), R (Reset), S (Start); so I did not use A B C D but L (Light), M (ode), R (Reset), S (Start)
(There was no need for A B C D even in German (as words similar: L (Licht), M (Modus), R (Reset(/RuckSetzen ?), S (Start); (So maybe A B C D was from Asiatic manufacturer & my manual in German was done by an Asian firm perhaps ?))

Now I (& others who find this) have the luxury of browser scaling up to any size wanted. - Legibly !, & no need of flimsy easily damaged & lost paper.

If you find it helpful email me a line saying eg "Thanks for/ Danke fuer Digi-tech web page/ Seite", It's nice to know it helps people. (So far I've heard from several it's helped, & one who gave up on her Digi-Tech.

Alarm & Chime Set On/Off
Wecker und Chime Ein-/Aus- stellen

Starting in normal display mode, While Holding RESET_knob in continuously, push START_knob 1 to 4 times to select through 4 successive variations of:
  • Alarm On , Chime Off
  • Alarm On , Chime On
  • Alarm Off, Chime On
  • Alarm Off, Chime Off
Note 1 push of START_knob does not necessarily put watch on 1st line, it merely moves watch on 1 state from previous state.
  • In der Normal- anzeige : Fest- halten Knopf_Reset drucken, Weck- zeit wird angezeigt mit Stunde und minute.

Kenko:
  • Alarm (Once each day):
    Push & hold RESET_knob in, then also push START_knob, which toggles on & off the alarm (Symbol comprises 3 concentric arcs of circles, progressively larger the further left of the radial dot on right, symbol is outside & lower left from the gold colour circle painted on the plastic (gold paint obviously not on LCD itself).
    It beeps each time Alarm is turned On
  • Chime (On each hour)
    The hourly chime (brief beep) is presumably indicated by the flashing symbol, upper on the LCD, within the (gold colour) circle painted on the plastic.
    • I do not know how to change this.
    • It was off before, yet became On after I installed a new battery (AG12=386).
    • It is not changed by any combined binary mapping to alarm + chime enables, of count eg 1,2,3,4 of presses on START_knob).
    • It is not changed by holding in START_knob & pushing RESET_knob
    • It is not changed by holding in RESET_knob & pushing MODE_knob
    • It is not changed by holding in RESET_knob & pushing LIGHT_knob

Setting 12 or 24 Hour Mode
12/24- Stunden- Anzeige- format zur Wahl

Hold RESET_knob pressed continuously, (Main display then shows (if a bit after midnight): "AM 12:00 A") & pulse MODE_knob, observe on left side in middle height, & it switches to "0:00 A", In afternoon it switches between a tiny "PM" on the left, (or 24 hour digits I guess, eg 13:00, 1:00 etc) the "PM" goes On & Off (so tiny it needs either bright sunlight, or a magnifying glass. & the "P" of "PM" can fall into shadow of edge of display if only building window is on your left (eg as I write this) ), If the AM or PM symbol shows on left, watch is presumably in 12 hour mode, not 24 hour mode.
Fest- halten Knopf_Reset und drucken Knopf_Mode, andert sich das 12 Stunden- Anzeige- format auf 24- Stunden- Anzeige format, oder umgekehrt.

3 seconds:
To get 3 seconds: Say aloud leisurely: "Mississipi One, Mississipi Two, Mississipi Three" If you just think it, most people go too fast & you get less seconds, so the watch may not be in the state you expect.
