    Laughing Question for owners of the GWR-B1000...

    So just for grins, I tried the "direct start" of the stopwatch from the main timekeeping mode. (Calendar mode, as the manual calls it) I had a hard time getting that to work! In fact for awhile, I could not get it to work at all. As it turned out, I finally did manage to get the direct start stopwatch to kick in; this required two quick button presses of the "A" button in quick succession. Still, it seems to be a little finicky as to how the button is pressed. If it's not done exactly right, the stopwatch mode will not engage.

    Curious how many of you have tried doing this, and if you have, how easy was it for you to engage the direct start mode of the stopwatch?

    Doesn't matter to me much cause I won't have much of a need for that. (And if I will, I'll wear a GW-9400) It's also pretty quick to just move straight to the stopwatch mode and press the "A" button.

    Mine behaved in the same manner. I think I posted in in the gravitymaster thread. I thought something might be wrong with my watch. Gary mentioned something to try. After using it for some time now, it seems to respond a bit better than it did originally.

    I love the one press stopwatch of the 9400, so I was looking forward to this. I use it on occasion, but I have just put it in stw mode when using it repeatedly.

    This is what I suggested.

    It might just be a software issue. Perhaps you're double pressing too quickly for the software to handle. What happens if you press the button fully, release fully, wait a half second or a second, then press and release again?

    It's a bit weird. A single button press like on the 9400 would be so much easier. But I normally don't use a SW much on an analog, so like I said it won't matter too much to me.
