Specs


Although highly sophisticated, the XG-55 is designed for easy operation. A feature you’ll appreciate on this watch is the ability to switch between 12-hour and 24-hour time format, current and dual time, and English and metric measurement units at the push of a button. This watch has a large three-row display for easy viewing.

The XG-55 has eight major function modes. These are Current Time, Daily Alarm, Chronograph (stopwatch with lap memory recall), Timer (countdown), Dual Time, Barometer, Altimeter, and Compass. Here’s what the watch does in each mode.

Current Time Mode: During normal operation in Current Time Mode, the XG-55 displays the time in the large second row as hour, minutes, and seconds in your choice of 12-hour format (with A for AM or P for PM) or 24-hour format. A circular bar graph around the outer edge of the display also shows the passage of seconds. For the displays top row, you can opt to show a three-letter weekday abbreviation in English, the current temperature in °F or °C, an altitude tendency bar graph, or a pressure tendency bar graph. You can even option the watch to alternate between these four displays. The third (bottom) row of the display shows the month and calendar date. This watchs auto-calendar is pre-programmed from year 2004 to 2099. In Current Time Mode, one of five pressure-based weather forecast icons is always displayed at the right side of the top row: Sunny, Partly Cloudy, Cloudy, Rainy, or Stormy.

During setup in this mode, you can select not only the time format but also the month-date order (mm:dd or dd:mm), the LCD panel contrast (10 levels), and key beep on or off.

Daily Alarm Mode: Two independent daily alarms plus an hourly chime can be set in Alarm Mode. Depending upon the alarm being set, AL1 or AL2 appears in the top row of the display. The alarm time is displayed in the second row, and On or Off (for alarm enabled or disabled) is displayed in the third row. In Current Time mode, an alarm icon (sound waves) tells you that an alarm is enabled, and a bell icon tells you that the hourly chime is on.

Chronograph Mode: In Chronograph Mode, the XG-55 displays CHR in the top row of the display. Elapsed time is shown as hours, minutes, and seconds in the second row and hundredths of a second in the third row. This is unless you are recording lap times, in which case you see a lap number in the top row. When you are done recording lap times (100 laps maximum), a lap memory feature lets you can view total accumulated elapsed time and then the times for each lap in ascending order. When the chronograph is running, the circular bar graph animation moves at high speed (one complete circle per second). Maximum count-up range of the chronograph is 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds.

Timer Mode: In Timer Mode, the XG-55 counts down in 1-second increments from the time you set. Maximum range of the countdown timer is 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds. In this mode, you see TMR in the top row of the display and the set time in the second row. The third row shows the current time as hour and minutes. When the timer is counting down, the circular bar graph shows the passage of seconds in a counterclockwise direction. When the countdown reaches 10 minutes, the watch beeps at 1-minute intervals. When the countdown reaches 1 minute, the watch beeps at 10-second intervals. When the countdown reaches 5 seconds, the watch beeps each second. When the countdown reaches 0, you hear a 30-second beep and can press any button to silence it and reload the set time. If you stop the timer before the countdown reaches 0, you can either restart it from where it is or reload the set time.

For convenient setting, the countdown timer has five quick-set values (QSVs) of 3, 5, 10, 15, and 45 minutes plus a user preset value (UPV), which can be set for any time up to the maximum.

Dual Time Mode: In Dual Time Mode, you can set and view a second time in hour and minutes. In this mode, you see T2 in the top row and the dual time as hour, minutes, and seconds in the second row. The circular bar graph also shows the passage of seconds. The third row is blank. A weather forecast icon is displayed in Dual Time Mode as well as Current Time Mode.

Barometer Mode: In Barometer Mode, you can view the current pressure in hectopascals/millibars (hPa/mb) or inches of mercury (inHg) in the second row of the display. In the top row, the XG-55 has two display choices, a pressure history graph for the past 23 hours or a digital temperature display in °F or °C. Current time is displayed as hour and minutes in the bottom row. The circular bar graph shows the passage of seconds. In place of current pressure and time, you can choose to display the pressure recorded at each of the past 23 hours along with the time of the reading. Although the barometer is calibrated at the factory, you can recalibrate it to a known pressure reading for absolute pressure.

Altimeter Mode: In Altimeter Mode, you can view the current altitude in meters or feet in the second row of the display. In the top row, the XG-55 has two display choices, an altitude history graph for the past 23 hours or a digital temperature display in °F or °C. Current time is displayed as hour and minutes in the bottom row. The circular bar graph shows the passage of seconds. In place of current altitude and time, you can choose to display the altitude recorded at each of the past 23 hours along with the time of the reading. Altitude measurement is based on air pressure. An altitude calibration feature allows you to set the altimeter to zero for relative altitude readings or to a known altitude for absolute altitude readings. As it comes from the factory, the XG-55 is calibrated for a sea level pressure of 1013.2 mb/hPa. For maximum accuracy, this can be recalibrated to a known sea level pressure in your location.

Compass Mode: In Compass Mode, the top row of the display shows the bearing (compass point, such as NW or SSE) of the direction in which the watchs pointer is pointing. The second row shows the bearing (digital degrees) of the direction in which the watchs pointer is pointing. Current time is displayed as hour and minutes in the bottom row. The circular bar graph shows the passage of seconds. The XG-55s compass is a magnetic compass and thus points to magnetic north, which is slightly different from true north. The angular difference between magnetic north and true north is called magnetic declination, and its amount (degrees and minutes) and direction (east or west) depend on your location on the planet. As part of setup, the XG-55 lets you compensate for magnetic declination. The user manual provides the declinations of 64 major locations worldwide.

Compass Mode lets you not only determine direction but also measure the direction of an object from a reference point as either a compass point or digital bearing in degrees. You can select normal bearing direction or backward bearing direction. With backward bearing, the watch displays the direction directly opposite the normal bearing direction. The XG-55 can also check your position on a map by backward bearing, and, if you are hiking on a track, the watch can keep your track course correct. A compass lock function is available to lock important direction readings in Compass Mode. Also in Compass Mode, the watch goes into an idle state after 1 minute. Pressing any button except the Light button returns the watch to its compass display.

This watch comes ready to use with one CR2032 3V lithium battery installed. A low battery icon appears when its time to change the battery. Expected battery life is 1.5 years under normal operating conditions as described in the XG-55 user manual.

The highly versatile and multifunctional XG-55 Digital Altimeter Watch with Compass from La Crosse Technology will keep you on track on your next climbing, hiking, hunting, backpacking, skiing, or other outdoor excursion. Wear it and stay constantly informed of changing environmental conditions.
