Thermometer Precautions
• Temperature measurements are affected by your body temperature (while you are
wearing the watch), direct sunlight, and moisture. To achieve a more accurate
temperature measurement, remove the watch from your wrist, place it in a well
ventilated location out of direct sunlight, and wipe all moisture from the case. It takes
approximately 20 to 30 minutes for the case of the watch to reach the actual
surrounding temperature.

Temperature Reading Precautions

When taking temperature readings, it is best to remove the watch from your wrist in
order to eliminate the effects of body heat. 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.
