    I'm at my wits end w my new gw 3000,really need help

    Just got it a day ago and I can't get this watch going. I can't get a reliable atomic sync. I knew this in advance, living in central Florida. I've worked on getting set correctly for countless hours. Unless i am really misreading the manual, I have been following the instructions very carefully. Now the day,time,date, and maybe the year are screwed up. I have a core, pathfinder,vector, etc. but I just can't figure this watch out. If I can't get this watch set up soon, I'll have to send it back, which I really don't want to do since I love the looks of the watch. Any help will be really appreciated. I'm about ready to 'lose it'. Thanks for the help.

    I think I got it! Not easy at all. Got the time, date, day year set. Don't want to mess w any other setting right now, after about twenty hours I'm a bit fried. The casinos are great,but the instructions leave something to be desired. Pretty happy, really beautiful watch. Thanks for the views.

    Glad to hear it worked out for you, and congrats on a very nice G! were you able to get reception or did you manually set it?

    Yea I had to figure mine out on my own too. You can read all of the tutorials in the world in the forums but you really just gotta take the time and figure it out!

    Oddly enough I got an atomic sync overnight. I live right on the west coast of fl, ten feet above sea level. Lousy radio reception so I was surprised that it synced. It would be nice to see a really good YouTube video on the set up.

    For me, my GW-3000's sync way faster than the rest of my atomics, regardless of their location inside the room.

    Congratulations on acquiring a beaut!

    These YouTube videos helped me setup my GW-3000's.
