    Question regarding the Riseman barometer

    Hi, I work in the military and I plan on buying the G-Shock GW9200-1 Riseman watch and I have a question: could the pressure from a firing howitzer damage the barometer?

    The Riseman is rated to 200 metres water resistance. I'm sure the pressure on the sensor at 666 feet below sea level (approx. 293.92 psi) is far more than the pressure wave from a howitzer. So, no. It will not damage the barometer.

    If you know the psi of the howitzer pressure wave at various distances, you can know for sure.
