Question about Watches

Suunto Yachtsman watch - I have noted that the Barometer function seems stuck at around 900mBar...this cannot be correct! Is there a way to reset this device...is the reading mechanism for pressure blocked in some way?

    hmmm thats a good question!



    i had a battery replacement a while ago and wonder if this could 'LOCK' the readings?



    so there is a way to unlock this and the watch may perform again?

    that could be the case.....howvever im in yemen at the moment!



    the barometric pressure is related to altitude and sea level but at a temperature outside around 45 degrees i would have thought 1000mbar +



    now it says 899mbar and i have reset to '0' from '-3' the 'trend' arrows seem to be working but im not so sure about the barometer still. is there a way to test it, like leave it in shade for 15mins and see what the barometer reads? the temperature should increase with ambient where i am



    thanks

    guess my post didn't go through sorry. try this sequence mode=> mode=> select=> mode. see if that works

  • seth veloso Jun 18, 2009

    man i'm out of it today, after you hit select set the diff to zero

  • seth veloso Jun 18, 2009

    hey, I should have asked first, how long has it been at 900, have you been in different locations and still reading 900? 900mBar would be the normal reading of an elevation of 1000 meters or 3300feet above sea level. So in other words, if you are not moving elevations much and it is only moving up and down a little bit and your elevation is around 100 meters, you should be good to go

Suunto t3-changed battery and Suunto t3 is displayed at the bottom of the dial but no functions work.


Shortcut battery with AC contact. AC can be found on the sides of watch movement(very tiny). You have to use pointed tweezers: one end on battery+, another on AC contact for three secs.

I have a Suunto X-Lander and i dont get along with the barometer/altimeter. The barometer always shows about 2 mbar below the nearby airport homepage. Can i by myself calibrate the sensor? This even...


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.

The ascent reading seems to be very inaccurate and the battery shows low after only a couple rides after installing a new battery. Anyone have a solution for the acent issue?


You need to send the watch into Suunto for service. The watch is obviously having an issue if it will not hold charge with a new battery and the Altimeter is not working correctly.

The Altimeters are Barometric pressure related and occasionally something goes wrong.

My experience is that Suunto is very good about fixing and/ or replacing when this issue arises.

If you continue to have problems with your watch, and the instructions in the user manual don't resolve your problem, you may have to return the watch to Suunto.
Your watch must be registered with them, you'll need the serial number of the watch, which is located on the back case. You'll have to get an RMA from Suunto in order to send it back to them.

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.
