  • The watch will give two beeps every three minutes. This will subtly remind you to take your medications in the event that you get sidetracked.
  • Multiple alarms in Medical Snooze may cause the watch to do its reminder beep more often than every three minutes. The watch will remain in medical snooze for up to 4 hours (240 minutes) for each alarm.
  • When in Medical Snooze, alarms can be turned off by pressing either FORWARD or REVERSE. We recommend that you only do this after you have taken your medications.

    ERASE Data/ How to erase information

    You can erase information in two ways.

    ERASE one Character: Most commonly you may want to erase a medication name. To do this, you must overwrite the medication name with "spaces". There is a "space" character just before the letter A. It looks like a blinking underline. You must overwrite each letter in the medication or alert name with this "space" character. Or simply overwrite the current information with a new information.

    ERASE All: The other way you can erase information is to press and hold all four buttons until the watch display goes blank. Release the buttons and the watch will beep. This method will erase ALL information from your watch, and you will need to reprogram your medications (ALARM BANK) and alert (DATA BANK) information.

    BATTERY REPLACEMENT

    e-pill CADEX runs on a CR2032 button cell. At the first sign of low power (dim display), have the battery replaced. We strongly recommend that you take your e-pill CADEX to a jeweler for battery replacement, instead of changing it on your own.

    IMPORTANT: Once the battery is replaced, in order for the watch to function properly, you need to reset the watch by pressing and holding in the 4 buttons on the sides until the watch display goes blank. Release the buttons and the watch will beep. You will need to reprogram your watch after the reset.
