Option WG-1 control lock

Is there anyway to lock the settings on a WG-1? I've found when I'm swimming with it around my wrist or in my hand its easy for buttons to get hit and the settings changed when I pull it up for a shot. I couldn't find anything obvious in the menus or the manual. I just want something to lock out all the controls but the shutter release.

If you put it in green mode, that should lock settings, for the most part. I don't think there's any way to actually disable the buttons, though.
