Specifying Temperature, Barometric Pressure, and Altitude Units
Use the procedure below to specify the temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude units to be used in
the Barometer/Thermometer Mode and the Altimeter Mode.
Important!
When TYO (Tokyo) is selected as the Home City, the altitude unit is set
automatically to meters (m), the barometric pressure unit to hectopascals
(hPa), and the temperature unit to Celsius (°C). These settings cannot
be changed.
To specify temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude units
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, hold down

Precautions Concerning Simultaneous Measurement of Altitude and Temperature
Though you can perform altitude and temperature measurements at the same time, you should remember
that each of these measurements requires different conditions for best results. With temperature
measurement, it is best to remove the watch from your wrist in order to eliminate the effects of body heat.
In the case of altitude measurement, on the other hand, it is better to leave the watch on your wrist,
because doing so keeps the watch at a constant temperature, which contributes to more accurate altitude
measurements.
To give altitude measurement priority, leave the watch on your wrist or in any other location where the
temperature of the watch is kept constant.
To give temperature measurement priority, remove the watch from your wrist and allow it to hang freely
from your bag or in another location where it is not exposed to direct sunlight. Note that removing the
watch from your wrist can affect pressure sensor readings momentarily.

Viewing Altitude Records

Use the Data Recall Mode to view manually saved altitude readings and automatically saved high altitude,
low altitude, total ascent, and total descent values. Altitude data records are created and saved in the
Altimeter Mode.
