Question about Tissot T-Touch T33159851 Wrist Watch

T touch Meteo out by 20 Milibars

I am a pilot and have checked the hourly met report, and find that the meteo reading on the ground is out by 20 + millibars. Perhaps the static vent is blocked ?! How can the meteo be calibrated. The watch was a gift and I am extremely particular about it. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Certain functions need to be calibrated. The altimeter and the Meteo are tied together. When a customer gets the watch, they should calibrate to either the Meteo or Altimeter. The easiest way to find out the altitude of the nearest airport (you can usually get this on line) and then go to the airport and adjust the
watch. This will also calibrate the Meteo.

To calibrate the Altimeter:
1. Activate Crystal
2. Press Altimeter
3. Press and hold top + button until the watch beeps and display flashes.
4. Use + and – buttons to adjust altitude
5. Press center of dial to lock in.

Adjusting meteo function


Yes, Sir. But remember when pilots reset their altimeter with the local altitude, the pressure value matches the moment wheather pressure. It will be wrong anyway, if you reset you altitude, but the pressure readings are still wrong. Im my case it is happening. The altutide is correct but the pressure of the watch does not match the local pressure. It is 20 hpa over it. By the way, I am an airline pilot.

Tissot T-Touch : Faulty reading on Thermo, no reading on Altimeter and meteo not working either


If it's under warranty by all means pursue a fix. You might have to send it to a warranty center instead of working with your local dealer.

"Water proof" and "water resistant" are very different. About 20 years ago all watch companies stopped promising waterproof and started using the term water resistant. It gives them wiggle room in the guarantee, unfortunately. I believe T-Touch is supposed to be water resistant to only a few meters.

Meteo


1. How do you know the meteo is wrong? Are you comparing against a known good measurement device?

2. The altimeter requires adjustment every few days or whenever there's a weather change. Select the altimeter, hold the upper or lower button until you have the correct altimeter reading for where you are and it will hold for a few days.

For example, I know my home is at 100m elevation (I checked on a topo map) so I reset it to 100m when I leave the house in the morning. It varies (in my case) by over 100m in either direction, depending on the weather.

The 'meteo' function doesn't work when I press the watch face.


This seems to ba a common problem. On mine both the Meteo and Altimeter stoped working. Apparently these watches have a fault with the water proofing and should not be worn in water!
