    GW9200's Twin Sensor vs Core's Sensor (pics)

    As you can see my house is kept pretty cold. Both watches were left on my kitchen counter for over 30 mins untouched and out of the way of any moving air.
    I would have to say the Riseman is on par with the Suunto Core.

    I set the barometer reference of both watches to NOAA.com's information for my city yesterday.

    Yes but the Suunto has a compass... which the Riseman lackes cruely...
    By the way, I never owned a watch with altimeter : how does it display the altitude, in feet or meters above sea level ? (cause in your pic I see only the pressure and temperature, and a vague graph).

    The altitude is shown on another screen for both watches. You can set it for meters or feet. I don't see myself ever using the compass unless I'm on a hike.
    My general sense of direction is pretty good.

    How accurate are they on your wrist? Do they both show warmer due to your body temp?

    That I will have to find out. I don't think the Casio sensor is thermocompenstated. But yes, as far as the thermometer goes, it does show warmer.

    My Riseman has been on my wrist for over an hour now. It currently reads 84.6 degF. My Core is reading 72 degF sitting a few feet away from me on my coffee table.

    Thanks for the comparison. Lots of folks say the core is more accurate than the pathys, but I don't know if anybody compared all the features with a Riseman. I looked at a core the other day and had a hard time reading the sub menus and could not quickly figure out the buttons. I normally don't need a compass but if I was hiking somewhere I could get lost I might need one. I have mountain biked lots of places and not needed one. Anyway with the price difference I think you could also get a Pathfinder prg-40 if you needed the compass.

    Yes, or also it's possible to add a clipper compass on the riseman strap (for 10$)

    I've got a cell phone with GPS which works better than any compass on a watch. I always have the cell phone with me anyway. I love all the features of my Riseman even if it doesn't' have a compass.

    I have both of those watches too! It never occurred to me compare the readings. Thanks for the idea.
    Couple of watches here and there

    This could be interesting to see how they react when on the wrist. can you check both to see if the read the same increase in temp.
