    Question Mudman Buttons

    Newbie looking for some help...

    I am interested in purchasing an atomic solar mudman and wanted to know if the buttons can be pressed under water. I am also curious if you can navigate through the modes while the light is on. I have a Suunto Observer that allows me to do this and it is a very helpful feature for those who work at night. Any info from you all would be great. Thanks!

    hi bigug,

    welcome to our nice little casio community

    yes, the buttons can be pressed under water, I have done this with several g-shock, never had the slightes problem.

    I am also curious if you can navigate through the modes while the light is on.
    unfortunately no. the el-backlight on the GW-9000 only lasts 1,5 seconds anyway, but if you push any button while this period you will even further shorten it

    you can however, push the light button in all modes and of course you are always free to turn the auto-el on, but the 1,5 seconds remains. personally I also wish casio would build a watch where one is able to turn the light on, as long as it takes to make a setting for a specific mode. unless this is going to happen, we have to learn the functions and workflows of our watch(es) by heart I'm afraid, so we can use them also in darkness (or push the light button every few seconds....)


    regards, holger

    I'm 100% with caliber here, not a big issue for me since I set the mode that I need prior to going to dark area but you're right this would be a nice thing to have.

    Timex has a "night mode" that turns the indiglo for couple of seconds no matter what button you press.

    I understand where the Casio is coming from this feature if not used carefully would drain the battery in a hurry.

    Welcome, BigUg!
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    you can turn the "mute" on (turn off the beep) and the EL will remain while you are changing mode

    but its still limited by the duration of the EL

    even for timex, they won't "beep" and "turn EL on" at the same time (i think, at least for my ironman shock resistant 200m. i don't have it with me, but maybe somebody can run a test and see if this is true. but i would imagine beeping with EL on will draw a lot of current)

    Another potentially useful tip from WUS.

    I doubt you'll regret getting one. The buttons are a little hard to press, but they're built like tanks and they look good. I wouldn't worry too much about pressing the buttons underwater - I used to do that with my old casio team-alpha 50M water resistant watch, and never had any problems at all.
