Question about Watches

1 Answer

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 affects the altimeter. Even when the watch lays at the same spot the altimeter can show different values. Thankful for help! Erik

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.

Tissot T-Touch Baro way too high


Try to recalibrate the Baro/Altimeter as below:

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.
