Calibrating Altitude Readings (Offset)

To minimize the difference between locally indicated and measured values, you should update the reference altitude value (offset) before setting off and during treks or any other activities where you take altitude readings.

Also, you can ensure accurate measurements by checking a map local altitude indications or some other source for your current location’s altitude, and regularly calibrating watch readings with the latest information while mountain climbing.

1.Enter the Altimeter Mode.

2.Hold down (D) for at least two seconds. Release the button when [SET] starts to flash and then disappears from the display.

This displays the current altitude and enters the Altitude Offset Mode.


3.Use (A) and (C) to change the altitude value to an elevation value obtained from another source.

Setting range: -3,000 to 10,000 meters

Setting unit: 1 meter (or 5 feet)

  • To return the altitude setting to its initial factory default, press (A) and (C) at the same time.

4.Press (D) to exit the setting screen.
