    Riseman - sensor cover, supposed to be tight?

    Hi there

    The cover on the sensor on my Riseman is a bit loose. It's like theres a 1 mm movevemnt, and there's a spring below keeping it in the same place, unless I touch it. The movement is uneven, that is in one "side" it can move about 1 mm in and out and in the other there's next to no movement.

    Is this normal?

    I think it was firmly mounted a while back...

    I'd like to be sure, befor I RMA it

    This is the cover I'm talking about: Picture - Riseman cover

    Thanks

    Hi,
    it's normal - there's a small o-ring underneath it - probably to make it more shock resistant. So it does move a tiny bit.

    Pheeew, thanks man - didnt like the idea of RMA'ing it, and then they find it's not defect... And of course, it's much easier not to RMA it at all.

    Thanks for your help, this (again) proves how good and helpfull this forum is

    Where did you get this info on the Casio riseman sensor movement? Just bought mine and noticed it is loose too.

    Ok speaking totally as a layman, indeed, I haven't even got my riseman yet, but presumably this is meant to "float" as such so as to move in line with the atmospheric pressure?

    From taking the bezel off . You notice that there's no fixed connection with the case - just an o-ring and a steel spring to make contact with the module - in fact I don't even know how it works. However it still worked perfectly after putting it back together - I checked it with an online weather site and it was spot on (but don't forget the watch displays absolute pressure while the weather sites adjust the pressure to sea level - but that's all explained in the manual).
    The construction makes sense - would be kind of foolish to have an exposed part of the watch making a fixed contact with the module - once hitting the doorframe will kill the watch.

    Re: Riseman - sensor cover, supposed to be tight?

    Hi,

    For past 3-4 days..... the movement of my riseman's sensor cap has increased quiet a lot .... once pressed ... it gets struck in the sensor's column.... and the watch is showing weird and drastic atmospheric pressure readings ...... should it be taken to service center ???

    Please help...
