Bio-based resins.
The bezel and band are made with bio-based resins produced using renewable organic resources, helping to reduce the ecological footprint of this watch. Tough Solar charging is included as well, for converting sunlight into energy. Everything about this diver’s watch exudes harmony with nature.

Commemorative design: Engraved diving frog character.
The diving frog familiar to FROGMAN fans is engraved on the case back, inherited from the DW-8200’s design. In commemoration of the anniversary of the FROGMAN, the frog is accompanied by the word “30th” as well. The diving frog also appears on the LCD when the LED backlight is activated.

ISO 200-metre water resistance to support diving use
The titanium case and screw-lock case back ensure an airtight seal. The watch satisfies ISO standards for water resistance, including button operability underwater, enabling its use for diving.

Specs to support diving activities.
In addition to dive time and surface interval measurements, memory for up to ten diving logs is included for recording data such as the dive start date and time as well as the time spent in the water. Tide graphs and moon data also provide handy ways to keep on top of conditions at dive locations.

Tough Solar powered for converting light to energy
Includes a solar panel in the shape of the second-generation FROGMAN’s dial.

Super Illuminator (high-brightness full-auto LED backlight) for readability in the dark. An image of the diving frog appears when the LED light is activated.

Using the Diving Functions

You can use the procedures in this section to measure dive times and surface intervals. The watch also records dive log data automatically.

Viewing Dive Log Data

There is memory for up to 10 dive log data records. Recording dive log data when there are already 10 log data records in memory causes the oldest log record to be deleted automatically to make room for the new one.

● Tide Graph/Moon Graph Mode
