............... >>> Its true: it didn`t bother me till about not long ago that I wasn`t sure if my Timex WS4 is showing the right measurements (altimeter and/or barometer). I can`t speak for all the other ABC watches but Timex says that by adjusting the altimeter, the barometer reading will "self-set".

OK, fair enough so I "Googled" my location and I found out that I`m at 183 meters above sea level. Cool! But hold on... 183m to what point in my town? Downtown? Damn... it should be easier than this. Ok, let see a reliable reference point. Lake Ontario! Perfect! Basicaly, anywhwere you are around the lake on the beach, you can take that as a reference point. All I have to know, how high is Lake Ontario from the Sea Level. A quick search showed 76 meters above sea level.

So, if you wanna make sure your altimeter is working right, find a lake near you, and find out its elevation from Sea Level. Go stand on its beach, input the elevation data into your "Altimeter settings" and you are ready to go.

I don`t make things. I make things better !
