Linking the watch to a smartphone provides access to the correct time, not only in the current location but over
300 cities around the world. Alarm setting and control over various other functions from the smartphone enhance
operability to an unprecedented high level.
Automatic Time Adjustment
The watch is reset regularly 4 times a day*1 by the smartphone to show both home time and world time correctly.
You can also reset the watch manually with just a push of a button*2 when crossing between time zones. The
precise time in the current location is displayed instantly with DST (daylight saving time) taken into account.
*1 EQB-501, EQB-600 and EQB-700 are 4 times a day. EQB-500 is once a day *2 EQB-600
Accurate Time System
Accurate time information (UTC) is acquired by a smartphone from a time server on the Internet. The smartphone
then analyzes this time data and its own current positioning data regarding the time zone and DST (daylight
saving time) status of the current location and resets the watch to the correct time automatically. Since Wi-Fi
communication is also possible, the smartphone can also acquire time information in indoor environments such
as airports or subways.
Performing a button operation on the watch causes your phone to sound a tone, even if it is in silent mode. This
means you can quickly locate your phone even if it is in your bag, or anywhere else nearby.
