How to Change the Time on a G Shock Watch

Changing the time on a G Shock watch is fairly easy if you know how to go about it. But if you don’t, there are a few things you need to understand before you begin. The first thing you need to do is set the watch to the correct time zone. You can do this by pressing a button on the watch. It should be a button on the upper or lower left side of the watch, if it has one.

Secondly, you’ll need to set the second digit of the minute hand. This is done with the Mode button, which is typically located on the lower left side of the watch. Press the Mode button for a few seconds and you’ll see different parts of the display begin to flash.

Once you’ve completed the first step, you’ll need to select a city code for the area you live in. A G Shock watch will then automatically change its time to your current time zone. For example, if you are in the United States, you will want to use a city code for the East or West coast. If you’re in another country, you’ll need to use a code for that country.

When setting your G Shock to the appropriate time zone, you will need to hold down the adjust button for about two to three seconds. After you do, you’ll hear a beep. That means you’re now in configuration mode. To get back to time setting, you’ll need to press the adjust button again, and it should flash within three seconds.

After you’ve finished adjusting your watch’s time and date, you’ll need to select a digital time setting. The digital clock differs from an analogue clock, but it still has the same hour, minute, and seconds hands. You’ll also need to set the alarm.

The G Shock model you have will vary from model to model. However, you can usually find the instructions for your particular watch model on the back of the watch. In addition, you may be able to search the Internet for an owner’s manual for your model. Some models have a button that’s located on the bottom right or bottom left of the watch. Other models will have a button on the top of the watch.

After you’ve set your time, you’ll need to set your alarm. On your G Shock, you can do this with the Adjust and Mode buttons. During the timekeeping mode, you can also set the digital clock and a time zone.

Once you have the digital time set, you’ll need to set the alarm. On some models, you’ll need to hold down the Adjust and Mode buttons for a few seconds to do this. Otherwise, you can also set your alarm using the forward and reverse buttons.

Once you’ve set your G Shock watch to the appropriate time and date, you’ll need to move the watch to the right or the left, depending on your location. For example, if you’re in the United States, you’ll need to turn the watch east or west.
