I found this one in the bottom of my watch bag. The start/start function for the stop watch and timer works by slapping the crystal! It was made in a running version (mine), skiing, and bicycling. Put a battery in today and it fired right up, with all functions working except for one.......the date function is only programmed through 2003! Bought it sometime in the mid-eighties.

What happens if you got mad and threw it at a stone wall
or even dropped it from a three story window ?
Just kidding.... Hahaha
Every time you use it you gotta slap it ?

You can also use the buttons on top to start/stop the timers. The "running man" display also sort of animates, with increasing slashes of LCD as time goes on, then empties, then repeats.

BTW, the reason the crystal is so scratched up is not because of slapping it. I let my 10 year old son at that time wear the watch for about 6 months. I got it back in that condition. Obviously he wasn't thinking of future sale value on Eb*y!

Date problem solved (almost). Year 2003 has same calendar as 2014. I'll set the year to 2003, so as long as I remember the right year, my daily and monthly display should reflect 2014.
