This watch is designed to be worn on your wrist for mountain sports (hiking, mountain-biking, etc). It is for telling the time and measuring time periods, using the stopwatch function. It features various measuring instruments (barometer, altimeter, compass) which enable you to position yourself better and give you indications on outside environmental conditions.
PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
Altimeter/barometer: altimetry is not an exact science. It entails interpreting variations in atmospheric pressure. An altimeter is above all a barometer. As a consequence, a variation in altitude may change the barometric pressure displayed and a change in the weather may change the altitude displayed. Please follow the advice in barometer mode and altitude mode. Handle the watch with care - do not drop it or subject it to strong impacts. Do not dismantle the watch. This would void the warranty and could cause damage and loss of waterproofing. Please recalibrate the watchs altitude or atmospheric pressure after swimming or diving, following the indications in altimeter mode or barometer mode. Read the instructions carefully before use. Keep the instructions for the entire life of the watch. Do not subject the watch to extreme temperatures. If the watch is exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, the display may darken temporarily, but will go back to normal once it has cooled down again. Only clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use detergents, which risk damaging the watch equipment.
batteries and recycling
This watch uses a CR2032 battery. Please note: if you note that the display is flashing unusually or doesnt appear to be working correctly, this usually means that the watch battery is low and needs to be replaced. We recommend that you take the watch to a DECATHLON specialist to have the battery replaced. If you change the battery yourself, you risk damaging the seal, thus impairing the waterproof design as well as voiding your warranty. Please check the availability of the battery with your dealer before travelling. Battery life is approximately one year, but can vary, depending on how long it was stored in the shop and the way in which the watch is used. The crossed-out bin symbol indicates that this product and the batteries it contains cannot be disposed of with household waste. They are subject to specific sorting. Take the batteries and your unusable electronic product to an authorised collection area for recycling. Recycling your electronic waste will protect the environment and your health.
This watch has 9 operating modes: A time/date mode (TIME), with two time zones and optional display of date, temperature, altitude and weather predictions. A compass mode (COMP). A barometer mode (BARO): weather predictions, barometric variations and recording facility. An altimeter mode (ALTI): current altitude, climbing speeds and data record. An altimeter log book (LOG DATA): recall stored data. A ski mode (SKI): delayed, configurable stopwatch on the altimeter. A stopwatch mode (CHRON): stopwatch with recall of stored split times. A sailing mode (SAIL): a sailing events countdown timer. An alarm mode (ALRM): two daily alarms. Press C to change modes. C C C C
EXPLAINING THE MODES
1 - TIME MODE (TIME) Using the time mode:
This mode displays information linked to the time and the date, and optionally displays weather predictions, temperature, altitude and local pressure. This mode displays information linked to the time and the date, and optionally displays weather predictions, temperature, altitude and local pressure. The watch can display two time zones (indicated by T1 and T2). You can quickly check the one which is not displayed by pressing A. You can select one or other of the time zones to be displayed permanently by holding down A (T1 or T2 flashes while you press and is then displayed continually). NB: The two time zones, T1 and T2, are independent: hour, minutes, date. Only the seconds are identical in the two zones. T1 and T2 must therefore be set separately. The calendar automatically calculates the day of the week for all dates until the year 2055. There are three time display modes: View 1: Time/date/day of the week/year (TIME). View 2: Time/date/day of the week (TIME). View 3: Time/date/temperature/day of the week/weather trends (TEMPERATURE). View 4: Time/date/altimeter/day of the week (ALTIMETER). View 5: Barometer time/day of the week (BAROMETER). Press B to change views.

NB: The graphic display of sea level pressure and barometric trends are described in the barometer chapter.
Setting the time, date, altimeter, barometer and temperature: In time mode, Select the time zone to be set as indicated above. Check that T1 or T2 is displayed. Hold down D p Go into setting mode. A brief message is displayed (SET HOLD) and the hour flashes (HOUR). Press A (+) or B (-) p to increase or decrease the hour. Press C p and the minutes flash (MIN). Press A (+) or B (-) p to increase or decrease the minutes. Press C p he seconds flash. Press A or B p to reset the seconds to zero. Proceed in the same way to set the year, month, day of the month, the units for the ALTI mode (ft or m), BARO mode (mbar or inHg) and TEMP mode (F or C), and to choose 12 or 24h clock. Press D at any time to exit adjustment mode. The day of the week will be calculated automatically. NB: holding down buttons A or B while setting allows you to scroll through the values more quickly. NB : when you reset the seconds to zero, if the value was between 00 and 29 the minutes remain unchanged. Between 30 and 59, the minutes increase by 1. NB: if 12 hour mode is selected, the symbol A or P is displayed on the main screen. 2- compass mode (comp) Reading direction equals 12 oclock on the watch Cardinal direction Azimuth Using the compass: When you enter compass mode, the word COMP is displayed for several seconds then a small COMP symbol will be present throughout the use of this mode. The reading direction (e.g.: NNW for North north west) and the azimuth in degrees are displayed. The reading equals 12 oclock on the watch. The measurement displayed incorporates the declination correction, which is the correction between the geographic north pole and the magnetic north pole. It is very important to calibrate it before starting. WARNING: in order that measurements are reliable it is very important that you ensure that the plane of the screen is perfectly horizontal. Otherwise the measurements will not be correct. Like all compasses, this watch is sensitive to magnetic fields. It is designed to operate outdoors, away from all metal parts and magnetic sources (pay particular attention to watches, keys, table legs, power lines, computers and mobile telephones). Again, measurements will not be correct if you do not observe this instruction. Furthermore, before any meaningful use of the compass, you must calibrate it. WARNING: the compass function uses a lot of energy. To save the battery, it will only be activated for around ten seconds before the display turns off (- - -). However, it is possible to reactivate measurement by pressing A. You can also hold down A for as long as you like. In this case, the direction will
be displayed for as long as you press the button.In this case, the direction will be displayed for as long as you press the button. Calibrating the compass: Hold the compass perfectly horizontal. Hold down D p CAL HOLD is displayed then the word CAL. Slowly turn the watch clockwise through 720 degrees horizontally (two complete turns). The manoeuvre must last at least 15 seconds per turn. Press C p to confirm that rotation has ended and enter the declination value (see the table below). The tens flash. Press A (+) or B (-) p to increase or decrease the tens. Press C p the units flash. Press A (+) or B (-) p to increase or decrease the units. Press C p E (East) or W (West) flashes. Press A or B p to change the value from E to W. Press D at any time to end calibration. The pre-calibration declination angle is zero. Declination values for a few major world cities. Enter an average value between two nearby cities listed below. Or the value of the closest city. NB: If you restart your watch, in COMP mode you can directly access digital compass calibration.

In barometer mode the watch displays weather forecast symbols and a measurement of the current local and sea level atmospheric pressure. This mode also features a graphic display of the barometric trend over the last 24 hours. Weather conditions display: The watch displays symbols giving an idea of the local climatic trends for the coming hours. Calculation is based on barometric measurements and the display is the same as in time mode. There are four trend symbols :
Sunny with cloudy spells
WARNING: Weather forecasting is not an exact science! No professional institute in the world is capable of 100% certainty. The forecasts given by the watch should be taken as an indication. If you have to make a major or dangerous trip (sea, mountains), confirm the MW600s predictions by contacting your local meteorological institute. Furthermore, at sea and in the mountains, climatic conditions can change extremely rapidly, creating life-threatening conditions. Be prepared and extremely careful. Meteorological predictions are given at 6am, and will only be reliable if the barometer has been functioning correctly for at least the last 12 hours. View 1 : Barometric pressure display. Est affich le graphique de la pression baromtrique au niveau de la mer lors The graph of sea level barometric pressure over the last 24 hours is displayed. The last value is on the right with each point representing one hour. It is not possible to read the exact value from the graph, merely the trend. In order to read the sea level barometric pressure values for the last 24 hours, go to view 5 and press A to scroll through the data for the last 24 hours. NB: The barometer varies by intervals of 1mbar and displays pressures from
View 2 : Temperature display. In this view the watch displays sea level and local pressure values and temperature. Change the units between (C) and (F) by holding down A. WARNING: body temperature may influence the value displayed. To get a precise idea of the outside temperature, you need to take the watch off and put it on an ambient temperature surface. Leave the watch to come to ambient temperature (around 10 minutes) and the display will stabilise. NB: The temperature varies in intervals of 0.1C and the variations will be recorded very precisely. However, the accuracy of the absolute figure will be lower (1 to 2C). Comparing the display with another thermometer may lead to errors, as the value depends on the calibration of the two devices. View 3 : Displaying local pressure. The main display in this view shows the local pressure. The watch measures altitude and atmospheric pressure using the same sensor. It cannot therefore determine whether the atmospheric pressure changes because of a change in altitude or in climatic conditions. You therefore need to calibrate the barometer to the altitude of the measurement site. Calibrating sea level atmospheric pressure. Calibration is only possible for views 1 to 3. Hold down D until the words SET CURRENT WEATHER scroll across the screen. The weather symbol begins to flash. Press A(+) and B(-) p to increase or decrease the displayed value, depending on the weather conditions observed at the time. Press C p the sea level pressure value flashes. Press A(+) and B(-) p to increase or decrease the displayed value, depending on information from an official meteorological bulletin, for example. Press D to exit setting mode. After 2-3 minutes without calibration, the screen stops flashing and goes back into barometer mode. A A A
View 4 : Differential barometer. In view 4, it is possible to activate a differential mode. This allows you to measure pressure changes from the moment it is activated, without having to reset the barometer. This gives you a new benchmark for monitoring barometric variations. Press D START is displayed. Hold down D until S.level and C.baro appear with flashing figures. Press A or B to reset the values to zero. You have just calibrated the benchmark to launch the differential calculation. Press D to confirm the calculation. Hold down D until STOP stops flashing to interrupt the calculation.
300mbar to 1100mbar. Press A to change the units of the barometric pressure value and hold it down until the pressure unit (mbar or inHg) stops flashing to go from mbar to inHg and vice versa. Press B to change between the barometric pressure values and current values. To convert pressure to inches of Mercury, use the following formula: Pressure in inches of Mercury [inHg] = Pressure in millibars [mbar]/33.9
View 5 : Pressure records. View 5 displays the values recorded over the past 24 hours. Press A to scroll through the pressure values. 4- ALTIMETER MODE (ALTI) In this mode the watch measures and displays local altitude in relation to sea level. This mode can also graphically display recent variations in altitude. Altitude is displayed in metres (m) or in feet (FT). The sensors accuracy makes possible a resolution of 1m (or 1 foot) and measurements from -700m (-2296ft) to +9000m (29520ft). WARNING: Altitude is calculated on the basis of atmospheric pressure measurements. If changes in the weather cause variations in pressure, altitude will be measured incorrectly as a result, and it is therefore necessary to calibrate it very frequently, particularly when the weather is changeable. Similarly, the accuracy of altitude measurements is indicative. Even though the pressure sensor is very accurate, climatic factors even imperceptible ones affect values accuracy (1mbar of pressure difference equals around 8m altitude difference). You therefore need to put the measured value into perspective yourself. Press B to access 5 different screens.
View 1 : Display of altitude and accumulated altitude. Cette vue affiche laltitude locale ainsi que la vitesse dvolution de laltitude This view displays local altitude and altitude change speed in m/min. Hold down A for a few seconds to simultaneously display positive and negative accumulated altitude. These are recorded in a log book (LOG); Press A again for a few seconds to stop recording and return to view 1. View 2 : Differential calculation. This view allows you to measure and time your altitude in relation to your departure altitude. You can also record this change in the log book (LOG) by holding down A for a few seconds to start and stop recording. To launch this differential measurement, press D until the digital value flashes, then press A or B to calibrate altitude to 0m, your reference altitude based on which you want to record future changes. Press D again to launch the differential display and to simultaneously launch the stopwatch. Hold down D for a few seconds to stop this display.
View 3 : Graphic display This view displays graphic altitude variation over the last 24 hours, time and temperature. View 4 : Digital display. This view gives a simple display of local altitude. View 5 : 24h altitude recall. This view allows you to recall pressure values over the last 24h. To do this, keep pressing A to display altitude in 1h intervals. WARNING: Accumulated altitude difference is calculated mathematically. If the display oscillates between two values, the cumulative value will increase every time it oscillates between the lowest and the highest value. The accumulated difference will therefore be more accurate when you climb steadily than if you proceed at a more or less constant altitude. Calibrating measurements. The watch measures altitude and atmospheric pressure using the same sensor. It cannot therefore determine whether the atmospheric pressure changes because of a change in altitude or in climatic conditions. You therefore need to calibrate the altimeter every time weather conditions change. Calibrating altitude: Go to the display mode which corresponds to view 1. Hold down D until SET HOLD stops flashing and CURRENT flashes. Press C to confirm the local altitude setting. Press A to increase or B to decrease its value. Once you have set the altitude, press C to return to main altimeter settings and proceed in the same way for: The 3 pre-programmable altitudes: LOCAL 1, 2 and 3. These 3 values allow you to enter known altitudes of landmarks which you come across during your trip. In this way you can switch to a reference altitude and thus improve the reliability of your watchs measurements. Please note: if you exit setting mode by pressing D at one of the local altitudes, this altitude will be taken as the default altitude. Restarting accumulated altitude. The maximum altitude reached during your trip. Triggering an alarm set to an altitude. If no button is pressed for 2-3 minutes, the display will automatically return to normal display. Storing climbing speed and waypoints in the memory: Hold down until the words LOG 1 stop flashing to store the altitude of the waypoint and climbing speed in the memory. Hold down A to stop measurement. The words LOG 1 are then displayed, confirming storage in the memory. Repeat for different recordings: LOG 2, 3 and DATA RECALL MODE (LOG DATA) In this mode, data stored in Altimeter mode (climbing speed) can be recalled. Altitude data is displayed on two different screens: Positive and negative accumulated altitudes. Average climbing and descent speeds. The maximum altitude reached. The time when the recording was made. To return to data recording, press A to scroll through the recording numbers (e.g.: LOG DATA 2) until you find the desired recording. Press B to see the detail on the 4 different screens.To delete the stored data, hold down D. The message CLEAR HOLD appears and indicates that the data is about to be deleted. Continue and hold down D to delete all data: CLEAR ALL HOLD. The screen then displays 4 dotted lines.

Press D when the base camp altitude is set. ress A to start the countdown timer at 10 seconds. P When the beep sounds start skiing. The stopwatch stops when you arrive at the altitude set for your base camp STOPWATCH MODE (CHRON) In this stopwatch mode the watch can store 100 split times. These split times can be stored for later use in 50 sessions called laps. The CHRON information is displayed for 3 seconds when you enter this mode. The stopwatch has an accuracy of /00s up to one hour (display: minutes/seconds/100ths) then of seconds up to a limit of 24 hours (display: hours/minutes/seconds). When the user measures a split time, the display stops for 6 seconds to allow you to read the split time and the lap time. Using the stopwatch: Press A p start the stopwatch. Press B p stop the stopwatch. Press A to continue measuring time Recording split times: Press A p start the stopwatch. Press D p Press D to record a split time. Press B p stop the stopwatch. Press D to see all split times and the average session. To delete data from the session in progress: While the stopwatch is in operation, press B p stop the stopwatch. Press D for 3 seconds p reset the stopwatch and split times to zero. 8- SAIL MODE (SAIL) The maximum countdown is 120 minutes. These split times can be stored for later use in 50 sessions called spl. During the countdown there are beeps. Every minute: double short beep Every 10 seconds during the last minute: double short beep. Every second during the last 10 seconds: short beep At the end of the countdown there is a long beep. To start: Press B to set the duration of the countdown between 1 minute and 120 minutes. Press A to start. The stopwatch starts automatically at the end of the countdown. To record split times: Press B. The word spl is displayed for 10 seconds when you arrive in this mode.
