    Summer Time (DST) setting GB-6900BU

    I’m trying to understand how my Casio G-Shock GB-6900BU handles DST

    Here in the UK the clocks went back one hour at 2:00 on Sunday 28 October
    On Saturday evening 27 October I had “DST” showing in my display.

    When I awoke at 07:00 on Sunday morning the watch was giving me 08:00, that is to say, it had not automatically put itself back one hour. “DST” was still being displayed.

    Should the watch have automatically adjusted itself?

    Thanks, OneTime

    It recived the signal before time change(00:00 or 01:00). It will correct itself the following night. Happened to me couple of times. If it recives signal at 03:00 it will turn off DST because it is turned off in the tower. Before that it is still DST time in the signal.

    The GB-6900BU is a Bluetooth phone isn't it? A quick chat with your phone (or wherever it syncs to) should sort it.

    Slac89, that’s brilliant - thanks very much.
    It did cross my mind that there could be an updating signal delay.
    This happens to our Panasonic cordless phones at home - now I know why!

    Thanks also for the quick response.

    sticky, you’re ahead of me again, well done!

    I didn’t want to complicate my original post by adding that I adjusted the watch to the correct time by launching my G-SHOCK+ app on my Apple iPhone SE then pressed button B on the watch to connect - immediate sync with the correct time on the iPhone.
    I don’t have my G-SHOCK+ app running continuously.

    Thanks, OneTime

    Slac89, I’ve just realised that I may have misunderstood your explanation?
    My GB-6900BU is not radio-controlled is it?
    So how could it receive a time signal?

    I don’t know what “MB6” is?
    Anyway, I’ll study the User’s Guide again to see if I can figure out what’s happening.

    As far as I know your watch is BlueTooth only and not Multiband 6 - that is to say that it doesn’t pick up the sync radio signal from one of the 6 towers on the Earth.

    sticky, ok thanks, got it.
    That’s what I thought, it’s not a radio controlled module like my Citizen.
    I’ll keep plugging away at the User’s Guide.
