    Riseman temperature sensor?

    This may sound stupid, but where is the temperature sensor on the Riseman?

    Is it defo the same sensor that is on the left hand side of the watch?

    The reason I ask is that the temperature measurement increases more rapidly when the back plate is in contact with my skin rather than pushing the sensor against my skin.

    Just a thought thats all.

    Catch22.

    In my protrek the sensor it s localized in the back plate, because when i touch it with one single finger i see the temp rising.

    Actually the themro sensor is what is known as a thermistor soldiered directly to the module. It is not the sensor to the left nor the backplate. It works by changing its resistance to electricity passing trough depending on temperature, so the amount or strenght of electricity passing it on the other side in the direction of the current will then be analysed by the software and transfered onto a chart converting it to a equvivalent temperature value.

    still it gets more hotter when you touch the back plate than touching the sensor.
