My TThas always read about 15mb high on the barometer. Is there anyway to calibrate this?

    mine is 13 HPA above the acruate readings..... any help would be appreciated

  • sabai00 Mar 30, 2009

    I have been looking for this solution because my barometric pressure is always higher than the real one.


    Air controllers always announce current airfield barometer when aircraft entering their control zone.  When Pilot sets altimeter, they set with the PRESSURE, not ALTITUDE.

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.

When my watch was new I had the same problem and got the clock module exchanged......now 2 years later my compass do not work anymore:-(

Mine reads 23 hP's high and we are talking about pressure not altitude!

I think you are confusing barometer with altimiter

Try recalibrating at sea level or a known altitude above sea level. Remember the barometer will never be accurate unless you recalibrate regularly as the atmospheric pressure is so variable. This is why pilots have to reset their altitude before taking off as it will generally be wrong.

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.

Touch function is not working


I had the same issue. After installing the battery and trying to calibrate several times... to no avail.I tried pressing the T button, keeping it pressed down and then install the battery. It give you a mode or function setting ( I'm not sure what it means). i then press the T button and it cycles through these mode setting. I synchronized the hands and then was able to get the: altimeter, compass, meteo, date and time working. The temp, chrono still doesn't work.
I think getting all the functions to work, depends on the mode setting... but i don't know the correct setting.

T touch Meteo out by 20 Milibars


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.

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!
