Just bought a Watson 8686 an I am trying to set it up/calibrate everyhig etc.

I am running into difficulty with the barmeter settings. I live at 400ft(120m) and th barometer is reading (unsuprisingly low) compaired to sea level readings.

I would like to adjust it but really dont know and can't work out what todo... 

Could anyone help?

Yours

You'll need to find out what the current pressure is at your location, or as close to it as possible, from a reliable source. Airport etc..

Once you get a reading, go into your settings, get the calibration menu up and change the "REL Barometer" value to the one you've found closest to you.

Once you've done that, on the main screen, there's a pressure icon with a button below it, it allows you to either show absolute, or relative pressure. You'll want to show the relative pressure.
