I'm sorry, I have to totally disagree. The reading of the altimeter will always change dramatically over time, even over a few hours. This is due to the fact that your altimeter uses barometric pressure to figure out altitude. Barometric pressure is continuously changing and so you need to frequently recalibrate you watch so that it can read accurately. I believe this is mentioned in the manual. It even recommends recalibrating altitude everytime you are at known height when on a day walk, so that you'll get the greatest accuracy. As for the barometric pressure not reading 100% accurate relative to the local forecast, it can depend completely on where the 'forecast' reading taken, unless it's at exactly the same altitude and within say a 5 mile radius of you location, then there is plenty of room for deviation. Having said, that barometric pressure you gave must be in imperial measurement and so I'm not sure how great a difference there is between 29.95 and 30.08. This can depend on what kind of area you're using it in- temperate climates and / or mountainous and coastal areas are much more subject to barometric pressure changes compared to say flat, dry, continental interior areas.
