Black Dice “Guru” Watch Instructions – public service item

Black Dice “Guru” Watch Instructions.
Apparently these instructions are hard to get so online here is what I have worked out for myself on my own watch by reading online and playing with the watch.

To show time or date.
Press once for time.
Press twice for date.

To change display horizontal to vertical.
Press and hold until whole screen lights up.

To change message.
First press the button twice so that the date is showing then press the reset button with a point (the one that is flush with the side of the watch other side from the big button) this will allow you to enter the letters cyclically by pressing the big button. Then move to the next letter by pressing the reset button again. Don’t hang about before pressing the reset button to move between elements or normal display will resume. Press reset once last time to move or your last letter changed won’t save. Then wait for normal display to automatically resume.

To set time and date and 12/24 mode.
First press the button once so that the time is showing then press the reset button with a point (the one that is flush with the side of the watch other side from the big button) this will allow you to move through the time/date/mode elements by pressing the reset button. Don’t hang about before pressing the reset button to move between elements or normal display will resume. Change each element as you wish by repeatedly pressing the big button. Press reset once last time to move or your last element changed won’t save. Then wait for normal display to automatically resume.

Tips.
I have seen a report that the strap is a bit weak. Don’t fiddle with it. Don’t over tighten it. Don’t wear it too loose so it catches.
I have seen a report that the water resistance failed easily with only a little water so I wouldn’t risk it at all.
No you can’t change the colour of the LED display. You got whichever one you got.
There are symbols as well as numbers and letters and a space in the available message font. The heart symbol is useful. Just keep pressing cyclically.
Battery life is about a year so I have read. I believe the unit takes two but cannot be sure. Battery replacement cost me £9 UKP fitted on a UK market stall in a small average town. So although I don’t know much about the battery I think they cannot be anything rare or expensive.
These watches are apparently discontinued and are considered collectably cool but are not very rare and have not gone up in value yet. Prices range from £53 to £90. UKP.Black Dice Watch
