Product Description

This multifunction handheld altimeter puts a huge amount of information in the palm of your hand. Comes with an easy clip -- so you can clip it to your bag, your belt, or just slip it in your pocket. It also includes a barometer, thermometer, hygrometer, and timekeeping functions. Get your altitude up to 9000 m with a resolution of 1 meter, and recall the last 12 hours’ worth of altitude data in an easy-to-read graphical format. Set an alarm when you reach a certain altitude. Keep track of time with the chronograph. Use the barometer to determine the current pressure at a resolution of 0.1 mBar, and check out previous minimum/maximum atmospheric pressure, along with pressure trend indicators. Thermometer and hygrometer store the minimum and maximum values. Pyle Sports: recreational gear for the great outdoors!

Seems as quality, packed to the hilt.

The controls are confusing as well so unless you use it regularly and memorize them or have the manual on hand, don't expect to easily access the functions on the fly.

After playing with it a while I decided it was not what I was looking for.

I made the mistake of buying this in spite of the reviews.

This product works. The dials display a number etc..

I can't correlate this barometer to other sources of barometric pressure that I could find. And the variation in the readings (30.88 etc to 28.98 etc) makes me think the readings are inaccurate. The barometer was the only reason I bought this; so I can follow weather patterns, but this tool is way too inaccurate for even such a small purpose.

The altimeter is all over the place. Even in a 5 second period, it changes 3-4 times, and changes are not small; the error is often on the order of 500ft etc.

The thermometer has a constant +2F error over all other thermometers that I have with me.

In short, don't waste your money.

I bought this cause I wanted an easy access watch for skiing since my wrist isn't all that accessible when I'm layered. I also thought having a thermometer would be useful as well. Both these functions work fine, the temp is +/-2 degrees when compared. The altimeter on the other hand is way off the charts. It varies +/- 75ft just in my living room, never sits still. But I guess it's good for a ball park figure. The controls are confusing as well so unless you use it regularly and memorize them or have the manual on hand, don't expect to easily access the functions on the fly.

I'm a meteorologist with 31 years of practical experience, and a Ph.D. in the subject. I also teach practical meteorology (including instrumentation) at the university level. I bought this thing because I wanted a reliable little barometer I could keep in my pocket. Unfortunately, this isn't it. I was able to calibrate it (set it to the right pressure) using a high-precision, high-accuracy mercury barometer we keep in our meteorology department, but I noticed that when you take this item out on the road, especially going up and down hills, it goes through wild variations in pressure before settling down. Of course I'm perfectly aware that there is (on average) about a 1 hPa drop for every 10 meter increase in altitude. That's not the "wild variations" I'm talking about. I mean this thing goes crazy when you take it up and down hills. Pressure goes WAY up then WAY down. Completely unrepresentative. If you stop and sit still for about a half an hour, it settles down again, and gives you a reliable pressure (which you can estimate given the sea-level pressure and a known altitude). So...if you mean to use this device as an altimeter, good luck. I wouldn't bet my life on it. It's probably fine if you just hang it in your kitchen, that is, don't move it around too much. I've chalked up the 60 bucks it cost me to experience, but have decided to try a analog pocket barometer (for quite a bit more money) that I found for sale at "Dalvey."

I've had this unit for about 3 weeks now, and have pulled the battery several times in an attempt to reset the functions.
This hasn't helped.
The clock works fine, the temperature is +/- 2 degrees of other thermometers I have here.
The hygrometer reads a steady 45% in my basement, but I don't have another gauge to check it against.
The altitude has varied 400+ feet just sitting on my desk !
The barometer bar graph won't stop flashing. I don't know if it's correct as I have no gauge to check it against.
The set-up instructions are not very clear, and the buttons are a bit confusing without the instruction diagram. If this isn't something you're going to use avery day, don't expect to access these easily.

Overall, I'm a little disappointed. I was mainly interested in TIME and TEMP functions, bit I could have bought a much less expensive unit with only those 2 readouts.

I would not recommend this unit to anyone needing reasonably accurate altitude and barometer information.

I love gadgets. For me, a gadget must have at least two applications. Ideally, there's a work and a play use for gizmos such as this. This does satisfy my requirement, but it is not perfect. I still wonder why there are compass markings on the bezel when there is no compass function. I've looked and looked for an indication of NORTH on the LCD, but there isn't one. It's not mentioned in the instructions, either. I like the thermometer and hygrometer features, but I tend to have doubts about the accuracy of the hygrometer. The altimeter varies wildly, too. On days when I don't want to wear a watch I'll clip it to a belt loop and take off on the motorbike.
Four stars for lack of compass feature.

I just wanted an inexpensive altimeter to check elevations when I was in the mountains. After finally deciphering the poorly translated instructions, I set the elevation for my current location. The barometric pressure is steady right now here but the elevation on this device is constantly fluctuating 10-20 ft plus or minus. Is this normal? I suppose it might be okay for a rough idea. I have yet to try it on a road trip. I really am not interested in the other functions, so I have no opinion on them.
I have to say that the only other experience I've had with an altimeter is a mechanical one I had years ago. I wish I could find a simple, reliable, not too expensive altimeter without all the extra functions that just get in the way and probably aren't all that accurate either.

Edit: I decided to return the device. After playing with it a while I decided it was not what I was looking for. After doing a bit of reading, I guess I am expecting too much accuracy for a device like this. It seems that 100-200 ft accuracy is the best you can hope for. I'm going to look for an analog that is easier to adjust and read.
