    Diving and the Auto EL function

    Does anybody here dive with their G-Shock and if so, how does the Auto EL light light function work underwater? I'm wondering if it works at all underwater with the body being in different positions and different forces being exerted on the watch, than when one is stainding on dry land.

    The question is inspired by the below thread I participated in over at the diving forum.

    Hello Steve:

    I've worn a Frogman and a Raysman 8400 to 90 feet on the same wreck and had no problem reading the display using the EL.

    Thanks Mike. Do you dive regularly and do you bring a watch? If so, what is it?

    Raysman DW9300?

    anyway, did you use auto EL? or by press of EL button?

    auto EL works well under watch as well?

    Works just fine either way under water.

    The Auto-EL function on my Raysman's and Frogman's is so amazing clear, that I sometimes forget I need to surface in the swimming pool to get fresh air Specially the Raysman EL are great!

    Cheers,

    The only exception to this is the MRG model FROGMAN.

    The backlight is very dim and Timothy Patrick also noticed this.

    It's as if it's the battery but I think that's just the way it is

    Driving and the Auto EL function

    Well, it's no problem with my G-9000, I guess the Casio trigger mechanism on my particular watch is set never to switch the light on unless of course I throw the steering wheel around more than about 40°. Usually, however, I see the lights from hitting the wall before that.

    :-X Ok, ok, I'll cut it out....
    sorry guys, today is friday and it's 16:01 the happy hour!
