Backlight

Suunto Kailash has two lights: a normal backlight and an extra bright backlight that you can use as a flashlight (see Flashlight).

To activate the backlight, keep the lower button pressed until the backlight turns on.

The backlight has three modes which can be changed in the options menu under GENERAL » Display » Backlight mode.

  • Night: Any button press activates backlight for 8 seconds.
  • Normal (default): Long button press activates backlight for 8 seconds.
  • Toggle: Long button press activates backlight and stays on until lower button is pressed again.
  • Off: No backlight.

The backlight brightness level can also be adjusted in the options menu under GENERAL » Display» Backlight brightness.
