Press and release the “+” button until the correct minute is reached. Briefly press the “SET” button to access the “Year” setting. Repeat this process to set the month, date, day of the week, 12/24 hour time format and temperature setting. Remember that SkyScan clocks can adjust themselves if set correctly.
Once the sensor reads your watch, place it outside in a shady spot. Hold the SET button to enter the settings menu. Press the PLUS button to adjust values. Press the SET button to confirm and go to the next item or exit the menu.
To reconnect them, you must first remove the batteries from both units for 15 minutes. Put the batteries back in the transmitter first, then the watch. Let them sit next to each other in your home.
Remove power from both units. Press any button on the display at least 20 times to clear all memory. Make sure the display is blank before proceeding. Leave all units without batteries for 10 minutes.
The SkyScan® atomic clock automatically sets itself to the correct time and date by receiving and decoding the NIST radio signal with an internal receiver. It ensures daily accuracy to a fraction of a second by refreshing the signal every day.
If the outside temperature shows dashes or does not change, the units may have lost connection or are experiencing interference. Make sure the A-B-C switch in both the display and sensor battery compartments is set to the same letter. You can choose A, B or C; but both units must match to sync.
If you replace the batteries in the sensor, don’t forget to reset the device by pressing the “channel” button on the back of the display unit. You must hold down the button for a count of three to reset the device. You must press the “TX” button to allow the display unit to search for and find the sensor’s signal.
If your watch never syncs with atomic time, there could be several reasons: Be patient. Aligning to the atomic clock can take up to a week. The Radio Controlled Clock (RCC) is a shortwave signal that originates near Fort Collins, Colorado and travels thousands of miles by bouncing off the ionosphere.
If you have an analogue atomic clock, it is possible that the hands are not aligned correctly. This could cause the clock to be off by a second or more even if it is properly receiving the atomic clock synchronization signal.
Wave (Forced signal reception): This is best done at night when the signal is strongest. Press and hold the WAVE button for at least 3 seconds. Once the WAVE function is activated, the hands will automatically reset to the 12 o’clock position and the movement will attempt to force signal reception from Fort Collins, CO.
