I just bought a Protrek PRG-110Y. I have a question. When I want to know the temperature, I press "Baro" button to read the temp and it showed 31.4 C.
But I know that the temperature at that time is 24.0 C not 31.4. (as in the watch on my wrist). At first, I wanted to calibrate but the manual said that I should take it off the wrist and wait around 30 minutes to have the more accurate reading. I did as the manual tell me and found that after waiting around 30 minutes, the temp read from the watch came very near to reference temp (24.0 C).
Am I wrong to conclude that..
1. If I want to know the reasonably accurate temp, I should take off the watch from my wrist and wait for 30 minutes or
2. I can just compensate by subtract certain amount from the reading on my wrist. For example, in this case I will subtract 7 from the reading to get the
(more or less) accurate temp.
Please correct me if I am wrong. Or if you have the right way to read the temp or other figure from the Protrek, please tell me. I am new to ABC watch.
Just another question, if I use Sunnto or other ABC watch, will I meet the same situation?
