    The effect of weather on signal on Atomic watches

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I have to ask.

    Signal was always level 3 on the display on the watch, but there are none right now. My area currently is experiencing thunderstorms in the area and in fact we are in the tornado warning zone at the moment. Could this cause to affect the signal strength? Thanks in advance for any info.

    Weather definitely has an effect. Perhaps you'll have better luck at night.

    Not a dumb question at all. Weather and atmospheric conditions significantly affects the ability of the watch to receive the signal. My Gs always experience poorer reception during stormy weather.

    Del: No I don't. I have uh... two dollars... and a Casio.

    Thanks for the replies. I am wearing my GW-5600J right now and ever since this morning, there has been no signal bars in the lower left corner where it indicates the signal strength in 3 levels.... will this come back automatically or can I do something to try to get signal? The weather has been calm now for about 2 hours now.

    Sometimes I manage to get a signal despite inclement weather in my area. And to think that I'm an ocean away from the nearest transmitter.

    Sucks to be without a G.

    Try taking the watch off and placing it in a window facing Colorado. It should sync overnight for you. Although my experience with a 5600J was that it was somewhat more finicky about syncing than some of my other Gs, so that may be playing into your problem.

    Thing is, don't get too worried. There's nothing wrong with your watch. Today for example, only my Riseman synced out of my three G Shocks. Usually, all three grab the signal, but there are times where they don't. No biggie.
