Need instruction book for watch with many features
I have an Atech Navigator watch, which includes altimeter, barometric pressure, weather forecast, temperature and humidity as well as many time functions (time, date, stopwatch etc). I need an instruction book for it: the store where I bought it did not have one and could not get one. I thought it would be easy to find on the net but haven't succeeded yet! I have not been able to get one from the Atech website. Can anyone help?

Erik, the altimeter uses barometric pressure to determine changes in elevation. Rule one is whenever you know the elevation for a fact, adjust it as the barometer is changing often and therefore affecting the altimeter reading. The only sure way to avoid this is use GPS. Altitude is derived from locating 3 or 4 satellites in a geo syncrohnus(SP?) orbit. Pilots always reset the altimeter before take off and you should too. Find elevations on road signs, maps, etc.
Same problem with my SPF-40, module 2273, after a small helical compression spring, silver color, fell out. I could not determine where it is suppose to be located. It could be the barometric reference spring for sensing the barometric pressure.
Setting and Calibrating Your Altitude 1. Press MODE until CAL is shown. 2. Hold SET to begin the calibration. 3. Press START/SPLIT (+) until HOME ALTI is displayed (or choose WEATHER when calibrating weather). 4. Press MODE (NEXT) to begin the setting process. 5. Press START/SPLIT (+) or STOP/RESET (-) to increase or decrease setting values. 6. Set the value to your current elevation. 7. Press MODE (NEXT) to advance to the next setting option. 8. Press SET (DONE) to finish. 9. To complete calibration for the REFRENCE HOME altitude (or WEATHER setting), press and hold STOP/RESET until watch beeps.
Repeat this procedure for WEATHER, making sure to choose the proper weather condition on the WS4 that matches your current weather.
Once these two variables are calibrated, your WS4 will be ready to go, providing you with accurate altitude, pressure, and weather forecast information at your fingertips. Enjoy.
Altimeters on watches are usually based on barometric pressure, since the pressure changes all the time you generally need to adjust the altimeter to a known altitude. You can look on USGS website to find the altitude of your area, or simply type in "altitude of city, state" in a search engine.
I hope I understood your question; if not, please reply.
It sounds like IC (integrated Circuit) in your watch is mulfunctioning, but can be something else. Can't say without inspection.None of the readings mentioned by you is acceptable. As the watch is purely microelectronic, there is nothing you can do but to take it back to the retailer and ask for repair or replacement. If your watch is just 10 days old, this must be done under warranty and at no cost to you. Don't forget to rate, please.
Don't forget that the altimeter is barometric, and therefore the altitude reading will change depending on the air pressure - i.e. the weatherman may give the 'high pressure coming through' or that there is a low pressure giving rain - to get the true altitude, you need to know the true air pressure at any given point on the earth ~(where you are) then set this as the 'normal'. you will then get the correct altitude. Don't forget that if you are in a pressurised aircraft - as in allcommercial flights, the cabin air pressure is artificially kept at appx 4000-6000ft altitude
