    Atomic Time Question GWM-5610

    I have never had an atomic time watch before, so this must apply to other Casios. I see where it says "received" (or an abbreviation of that) in the other left corner. Do I have to clear that, or does it auto-delete? Thanks.

    From what I know it stays there.

    The "RCVD" indicator, which can take many forms and appear in various locations on the display, turns off at midnight local time on most atomic Casios and turns on again when the watch "synchs" again that night.

    (The GW-6900 and GW-2300/2310 say "RCVD," the GW-9000 has a small circle that 'fills in' with LCD lines, and older models like the GW-5600J and MTG-900 actually show the strength of the last signal received with graphic icons rather than the "RCVD" abbreviation.)

    Yup, and others have a little G icon appear when sync'd:

    I've owned GW5600Js since 2006 and only until recently did I realize the 3 dashes that normally show signal strength were also an indicator if the watch synced. I still didn't know the 3 dashes were also showing the signal strength of the last sync as I have only ever seen all 3 dashes. Does anyone have a picture of a successful sync but only showing 1 or 2 dashes?

    It's always reassuring to see the RCVD:





    And worrisome when it's not there:



    If you don't like the way the RCVD looks, just initiate a manual sync during the day - which will most likely fail - and the RCVD will disappear until your next successful sync.

    In the manual it says that the RCVD indicator disappears from the display each day when the first auto receive operation of the day is performed. So I wonder if "RCVD" should always be in the display or not. Would it disappear after a midnight sync, and then reappear later?

    It disappears at the beginning of the new sync operation and reappears after the new sync is successful and stays all day until the next sync try, usually the following midnight, or if an unsuccessful manual sync is initiated by you.

    Daylight sync usually fails unless you are real close to the transmitter, so you can get the RCVD to disappear by trying a sync and then stopping it.

    When I swap timezones on my awgm100 it clears the RCVD immediately.
