My watch shows the date number and day of the week, however it seemed to be fairly random. Each day of the week has English (MON, TUE, WED, …) and French (LUN, MAR, MER, …) variants. Until recently I didn’t trust it, because half the time the day number was wrong and the day of the week was in French!

That is until I did a Google to try to find some instructions. It turns out that there’s a simple method of setting a date, and I thought I’d share it here:

  1. Set the time to 6 o'clock.
  2. Set the day and date to yesterday's day and date.
  3. Wind the time on so that it clicks past midnight (changing the date) and set to the current time, taking into account whether it is morning or afternoon.

Simple! And it’s been working fine ever since! :-)
