    Re: recommendations for wristwatch "inexpensive"

    Hi Jared:
    
    I've downloaded the manual, but can't find out how to display seconds.
    Can you point me to the English page?
    I already know that pressing the (-) button when setting the seconds
    would hack to zero secibds and that the minute needs to be set to the
    next minute.
    
    Thanks,
    
    Brooke
