    GPW 1000 second hand stuck? help!

    hey all,

    noticed about 3 days ago that the second hand wasn't moving. i didn't think much of this as the watch was sitting in a dark cabinet. I thought it was power saving by stopping the second hand. wore out in the sun today and its still not moving - even when i press the mode button. i even tried using the stop watch and it just doesn't move. could it be receiving a signal? it is pointing to T+P but not precisely.

    any suggestion? service centre? :(

    I think you'll need to go to service centre, even when receiving signal, the watch will terminate receiving signal if you change mode to stop watch and function as a stop watch

    Tried adjusting the hand home positions as per the user manual and if that does not work then it's definitely service center time.

    Bringing one back from the dead here, but just curious if there was any resolution to this thread as my GPW seems to be exhibiting similar behavior.

    Thanks for any help!

    Some power level indicators can be a little optimistic compared to the actual level of charge.

    I'd say charge it for a few days ... then see if the problem persists. Or, the secondary battery ?

    How did it go? I'm curious and interested in the outcome, even though I felt as soon as I read the original post that it was just low battery but who knows.

    Well, it wasn't too bright around here that day so I set it in front of an LED flashlight for the afternoon.

    So far the issue has not reoccured so it may have been just that....a low battery.

    I found it odd that the second hand had got stuck around the "50-minute" mark and would not move even when exposed to light or buttons being pressed.
