    Yay! I'm a Gadgeteer!

    Hi folks!

    I just became a contributing editor to Julie's site at The-Gadgeteer! When she asked me to create a review for something I own, guess what I chose? My Riseman!

    Yes yes, probably the most reviewed watch in a LONG time... but what a way to begin! Enjoy!

    Yes, I got over my OCD issues about the crooked screen. I don't even mention it!

    Re: Yay! I'm a Gadgeteer!

    I've had my Riseman for about 3-4 months already,but I honestly didn't bother "enough" to learn its various functions by heart and how each worked. Like others..I too, had or should I say HAVE trouble leafing through manuals.

    Thanks to you, the link and the review you did for the Riseman saved me the trouble of going through the pages yet again when I "felt" like it.

    Absorbed everything in a minute.

    Thanks Andy and great review.





    best regards,

    Kirk M.

    Great review Andy!

    Just a couple of factual corrections:

    "At first glance, the Riseman has a funny lump on the left side, which houses the sensor for the altimeter, barometer and thermometer."

    There is no such thing as a altimeter sensor, there is only one sensor placed in the "lump" and that is a barometric pressure sensor. The watch then has a US Standard Atmosphere 1976 barometric formula based standard conversion chart in its memory that enables the watch to derive altitude readings from the current barometric pressure readings.

    The thermometer is a thermistor soldiered directly to the module/mother board and is not placed at the lump.

    "Notice the dragon pattern on the back. If you have a “flying squirrel” on the back instead of a dragon, you’ve got a version originally slated for sale outside the United States."

    The Flying Fire dragon case back is found not only on US models but on all International atomic versions and on all non atomic version. The Flying squirrel is exclusive to Japanese domestic markets models and only found on the atomic versions. The Japanese versions do not support metric and imperial conversions for the different measurments given by the sensors, they are strictly metric only.

    Thanks. Corrections made with proper credit.
