    Lightbulb LIDL ABC watch / Multifunction watch

    *** Moved all the info here from the G-Shock forum, I think it's better having its own thread. Thanks ***
    *** Original thread here ***



    So anybody bought this watch ? It seems that I activated hidden features, like a baro & lap timer by mistake. After a reset I lost them and fiddled with it an entire day to get them back, but I finally found what I did the first time.

    So here is how. Below is a crude representation of the watch and buttons.

    B |---| D
    A |---| C

    *** Ok, so these instructions don't work ***
    To reset the watch, you press A&C together until all segments on the display lighten up and there's also a long beep. Imediately after this, an M starts blinking in the upper left corner and to activate the baro & other features, press quickly button D. You should see the M transforming into PSI, allowing you to select the baro units between PSI and mbar (hPa) using C button. After that, things get easy, just set the time and date as usual - note that now you don't need to set the weekday, just enter year, month, day and that's it.

    So, if anybody got this watch and had success following my instructions, please let me know. Thanks.

    Have a great evening!

    LE: to cycle between time, temp min&max and baro current&min/max, press button C
    LE2: added pics (sorry about the quality)
    LE3: my model number is 1-LD1868, if yours is different, maybe you should post about your experience.

    Below: lap timer

    It's an altimeter/compass (at least marketed as such) watch sold by LIDL - german company with value stores across western Europe.

    This time you're right, but we europeans pay much more usually for our watches. VAT (sales tax) is double, discounts are non-existent at best, etc.

    I know I would move to US (only for the watches and it would be worth it)

    Re: LIDL ABC watch / Unlock features

    Sorry, but your instruction did not work for me. I bought exactly the same watch, last thursday at Lidl. I missed that baro-feature, because where I live in the german niedrerhein-region, and like the name says, there are no mountains. I tried it several times, but it did not work. I don't think that there are different types of clocks sold. And with trying this and that at one point I actually saw that PSi, but then it disappeared. Can you please post some more details, or repeat your instruction with your clock to see if it really works this way. Thank you.
