    Off Topic post How did you configure your GW-M5610-1 ?

    How did you configure you GW-M5610-1 or watches with similar modules?

    This is mine....

    Daylight Saving:
    auto (don't feel like doing it manually)

    Hourly Signal: off (don't need saves battery)
    Alarms: off (don't need and saves battery)
    Button Beep: off (don't need saves battery)
    Auto Mutliband Sync: on (prefer to have high accuracy and not have to do manual sync)
    Power Savings Mode: off (I sleep with the watch on, so its sort of moving around all the time)
    Auto Back Light: off (I sleep with the watch on, and don't want the battery drained due to wrist movement during sleep)
    Snooze: off (Don't need it)

    Did I miss any?

    Power Savings Mode: on
    Auto Back Light: off (unless I'm going for a walk at night)

    You want to have your Power Save on. It helps conserve power.

    LCD's don't use THAT much power, so it's probably not saving THAT much. There are plenty of cases around here of people putting their old, slightly damaged screw-back 5600C's in a drawer and finding it ten or more years later, still running.

    And as always, on an atomic watch, why worry about the battery? That's what the solar panel is for!

    The GW-6900 manual claims that it should last nine months from a full charge (before going almost dead) under their ideal test circumstances, including Power Saving turned on, but using the backlight [ bottom of page 6 ] -- I've gotten the same amount of time out of mine under similar circumstances without using the backlight, WITH the hourly chime turned on, and Power Saving turned OFF.


    As far as the original question, it applies equally to most every solar/atomic model, since they all have the same options!

    All 14 (?) of mine are set to:

    Daylight Saving: AUTO (If someone lives within range of a transmitter, why would they WANT to do it manually?!)
    Hourly Signal: ON (I don't CARE about saving the battery -- it's got a solar panel to recharge it!)
    Alarms, including snooze: OFF (I don't use them very often. )
    Button Beep: ON(If the battery meter ever drops to "M" I'll put it in the sun to charge -- I've NEVER had one drop to "low.")
    Auto Mutliband Sync: ON (If someone lives within range of a transmitter, that's what the feature is FOR. It doesn't use that much battery power anyhow.)
    Power Savings Mode: OFF (I'm a night owl, and I hate having to "wake" my watch in a dark room in front of the TV or computer.)
    Auto Back Light: OFF (Even though I don't care about running the battery down, I don't want the light coming on randomly. If I need to see the time in the dark, I can press the button.)

    I don't want it to discharge faster than it charges...

    It won't, unless you a) never go outdoors AND ALSO b) use the light button non-stop every night for several hours.

    As I've said many times before, some of my solar watches that I don't wear very often last six or nine MONTHS on "high" without seeing the sun. When they drop to "medium" I put them outside in the sun for one day in the summer (or two days in the short days of winter) and they go back to "high" and stay there for six or nine MORE months.

    ...which means that they only take a few hours to charge and then THOUSANDS of hours to discharge the same amount!

    The auto EL is the first thing to be turned off, especially on solar watch.
