New Aerospace EVO owner

After deciding on what model to buy (I was going to buy an RAF special edition model), a steal of a watch came up.
Standard 2016 EVO, blue face, full box and papers, mint in every way. So, it is now in my possession.
I've read the manual and watched a couple of YouTube tutorials. I'm happy about how everything works, but I do find the "fast rotate" part of the crown a bit of a pain to get right, and it takes a couple of go's to get the display to move across the various modes.
Its also very difficult to read, not very bright.
Lastly, one of the tutorials states that it has a backlight function, that will illuminate the displays if the crown is rotated slowly. I cannot get this to function.
I'm wondering if the battery is in need of replacement?
Can any Aerospace experts shed any light on this (sorry, pun intended!)

Your digi will blink when your battery is low, so doubt it's that. Rotating the crown definitely takes getting used to to get your technique down just right. The light, I cannot remember, but you're right, it was never super bright as I recollect. Obviously meant to be more of a nighttime thing so hopefully it's decently bright enough in the dark. Anyways, you got a smoking price it sounds like so I suppose you ending up letting go of something in terms of total perfection. Enjoy!

Couple of months update, watch did require a new battery as it kept resetting to zero on the displays, and was losing time. No flashing though. I replaced the battery which was an easy task, having an easy to remove caseback. I replaced with the correct spec battery and all is good. NVG lights up and all has been ok so far. I keep the displays off at all times to preserve the battery life, but I do find it gets turned on very easily if you catch the button during wrist movements.

Well, I suppose things do get turned on if their buttons get pushed the right way from time to time.

Enjoy!
