i am in the military and getting ready to deploy to afghanistan. during my last tour in Iraq i broke my watch (cheap timeX) while clearing some rooms and i decided to get myself a watch that could stand up to the abuse of battle. i really liked the features on the riseman and being able to tell when its going to get bitter cold, or storm is a plus with the barometer. anyways, i ordered my watch a little over 2 weeks ago, and the only modding that ive done is taken off the resin band and replaced it with The Band in black. ( i wanted somthing that was going to have to take my arm off to get it removed from my wrist.
Anyways, ive noticed that after preforming a few baro and alti funtions in semi close order ( 2 or 3 operations in 5 mins ) that the display for the baro would display --.-- with the L M H meter flashing which i could understand as it being low on power at that moment.
i went to the chow hall this afternoon, and before i entered the facility i looked at the time, everything was fine, when i came out the display was blank and only a small C was flashing. i know this means the battery is like drained... but how can it go from H (full charge ) to C (no charge at all) in less then 20 mins? its still flashing "C" after more then an hour. i am already in the processing station to get ready to deploy in san diego, so sending it back from the company i got it from ( amazon.com ) is not a possibility at this point. i got this watch so i would have a piece off mind on deployment and at this point its failing me. can anyone clarify what i may have done wrong, or what i can do to fix this?
P.S. after putting it under my fenix TK11 R2 for less then 10 mins it seams to have went from C back to H... is this just a faulty battery? WTF this pisses me off. i cant have an unreliable watch in theater.
