T-TOUCH II*GLOSSARY WEATHERDescription of functionIn weather mode, the hands are superimposed toindicate the weather trend.ExplanationsWeather changes are related to variations in atmospheric pressure. When atmospheric pressureincreases the sky clears. The area is then referredto as a "high pressure" area or "anticyclone" (A).When atmospheric pressure decreases the skyclouds over. The area is then referred to as a "lowpressure" area or "depression" (D). The T-TOUCHmeasures these pressure variations and indicatesthe weather trend with the hands, which canadopt the following 7 positions according to the weather developments:- 6’:- 4’:Big pressure drop, rapid deteriorationModerate pressure drop,probable deterioration- 2’:Small pressure drop,probable slight deterioration12 o'clock: No notable weather change 2’:Slight pressure rise,probable slight improvement 4’:Moderate pressure rise,probable improvement 6’:Big pressure rise,rapid improvementThe T-TOUCH program takes account of atmospheric pressure variation overthe last 6 hours to calculate the trend to indicate. Furthermore, the pressurevariation caused by a rapid change in altitude is detected by the watch andcompensated for automatically. So it only has a minimal impact on the barometric trend.The T-TOUCH digital display indicates theabsolute and relative atmospheric pressurevalues in hectoPascals [hPa]. Absolute atmospheric pressure is the actual pressure at thetime and place of measurement, and cannotbe altered. Relative pressure is a value relative to sea level, based on local absolute atmospheric pressure . Barometers and weathercharts show relative pressure values. The relative pressure value depends onthe climate zone set, and can be preset on the watch. The relative pressurepresetting is in line with the altitude.Characteristics of functionMeasurement range: absolute pressure: 300 hPa to 1100 hParelative pressure: 950 hPa to 1100 hPaAccuracy:absolute pressure: 3 hParelative pressure: varies with altimeterResolution:1 hPaUnit conversion:1 hectoPascal [hPa] 1 millibar [mb]ALTIMETERThe altitude is displayed on the digital screen for 4 hours continuously.

T-TOUCH II*Description of functionIn altimeter mode, your T-TOUCH becomes a barometric altimeter, displaying the altitude relative tomean sea level.1:9GLOSSARY ALTIMETER2000m1500mExplanationsThis is a barometric instrument, which calculatesthe altitudeas a function of absolute pressureAttention!(atmospheric). As the altitude rises, pressuredrops, and vice versa. So the altimeter measuresthe difference between absolute pressure (atmospheric) and relative pressure (relative to sea level) to display the altitude. YourT-TOUCH is temperature compensated, and you can adjust your geographiclocation (hemisphere and climate zone). The altitude displayed is therefore corrected automatically.540 m540 m1000m500m0mP pressionNote 1: "Presetting" an altimeter means setting the actual altitude of a knownpoint (see presetting procedure on page 8). The actual altitude values are indicated on various media: signposts, contour linesand spot heights on maps. The altitude "presetting" is in line with relative atmospheric pressure.Note 2: In an airliner, since the cabin is pressurised, your altimeter will not indicate an accuratealtitude.Note 3: To optimise the accuracy of your altimeter, you are advised to select the climate zone, see page 6.Characteristics of functionMeasurement rangeAltimeter resolution– 400 m to 9000 m1m1 metre [m] 3.281 feet [ft]Unit conversionNB!– 1333 ft to 30,000 ft3 ft1 foot [ft] 0.305 metres [m]Due to the use of pressure to calculate altitude, the altimeter is sensitive tovariations in atmospheric pressure in weather changes. It is not uncommonto observe altitude differences of 100 m in a night. So the value displayedmay vary without the altitude having actually changed.780 m540 m540 m4473 m4000M4473 m4478M4473 m5000MWeather change pressure variation displayed altitude lution: 1/100 sec / Measurement range: 99 hrs 59’59’’ and 99/100 sec0.00.000027.12.07Activate glassChrono displayStart chronoStop chrono0.01.1 6 340.01.16 34Split (partial .00000.00.0000Start chronow ww. ti ss o t .c ha) Flashing stop with partialtime displayed, and chronorunning in backgroundb) Restart the chronocounting the elapsed timeStop chronoReset chrono9/1213h4657146 EN

T-TOUCH II*COMPASSThe minutes hand points to True North, factoring in the magnetic declination setting. In compass mode, the digital screen displays theangle between 12 o'clock and the minutes hand. This angle is called azimuth and is used to obtain your heading shown at 12 o’clock on theT-TOUCH.1 sec.Activate glassCompass displayUser compass calibrationBack to compassdisplaySETTING COMPASS MAGNETIC DECLINATION2 sec.oror2 E0RCompass displaySetting mode and magneticdeclination display: /- 1 degree East: /- 1 degree WestValidate settingSETTING COMPASS COMPASS CALIBRATION2 sec.CALCompassCalibration displayActivate calibration mode– glass deactivatedduring calibrationa) Calibration successful –data storedb) Calibration failed– repeat calibrationw ww. ti ss o t .c h10/12Turn the watch more than a complete revolution ona horizontal surface (e.g. a table) in an environmentfree from magnetic interference, at a rotation speedof around 30 per second.Total time: 20 seconds maximumBack to compass display146 EN

T-TOUCH II*GLOSSARY COMPASSCompassAzimuth explanationsIn compass mode, your T-TOUCH indicatesthe True North Pole, factoring in magneticdeclination.The azimuth is the horizontal angle between the direction of an object andTrue North. The azimuth is measured from north in degrees from 0 to 359 (e.g.: East 90 ). This anHeadinggle is shown in the display.Heading12 o'clock represents the heading given by the azimuth relativeto True North.Compass explanationsThe vertical lines (meridians) on the Earth converge at the True North Pole (Ng),indicating its direction. The hand of a conventional compass indicates the direction of the Magnetic North Pole (Nm). The angle(α) between these two directions Ng and Nmis known as magnetic declination. The magneticdeclination value depends on your location onEarth. Furthermore, the Magnetic North Pole isconstantly moving. So the magnetic declinationvalue also depends on the date. If the correctmagnetic declination value (for the locationand date) is set (see the setting procedure onpage 10), the minutes hand of your T-TOUCH willpoint to True North (Ng). If the magnetic declination is set to 0, your T-TOUCHwill point to Magnetic north (Nm). The magnetic declination values and datesare indicated on topographic charts, or can be found using special softwareavailable on the Internet.For Switzerland: ion.htmFor the whole world: Azimuth315oAzimuth315oNote 1For a correct indication of North, it is extremely important to hold the watchas level as possible.Note 2The compass function, like any other compass, should not be used near ametal or magnetic mass. In case of doubt, you canrecalibrate your compass.Note 3The rotating bezel, graduated from 0 to 359 , provides another method for determining the azimuth.Characteristics of functionAccuracy:Resolution: 8 2 ALARMThe 2 alarms are associated with time T.
