99% sure this red DW 8200 is a fake but...

    I haven't seen a real one or a fake quite like this online. Back cover has the frog, model # and all that. But the "Light" button indicator on the upper right is not that; the backlight works from the upper left button. "Log Data" only gives the alarm setting. Anyway, it has basic digital functions (time, alarm, chime, blue backlight) but I'd can't figure out how to set the day indicator or even open the date settings. It's possible the module is so cheap that it doesn't have them, but if I can get the date right I've got a functioning watch, even if a knockoff. Any suggestions? If not, thanks for reading.

    PS When I first got this watch, the backlight lit up in multiple colors (really childish looking) but after fiddling with the buttons, it now backlights in a really deep blue. FWIW

    It's a fake. BTW - any real Frogman will be hundreds of dollars.

    Thanks...I guess $3 still isn't such a big loss. If only the date function would work.
