Default Wonder watch

Does anybody know anything (apart from what the makers are pleased to tell us) about the Casio watches which are supposed to give barometric and temperature readings, and the times of the tides? How accurate are they? Surely temperature readings will be skewed by body heat, and how does the tide thing work? Any info will be gratefully received.
Cheers,
Angus

I bought the one from Lidl.works pretty good when set up properly.but you are correct,if worn on the wrist the temp is affected.I wear it on the outside of my fishing jacket.
The lidl watch does not have a tide table.

Time/ date
Altimeter
Barometer
Temprature

Ive got one with the temperature, barometric pressure and compass. The temperature is accurate if you take it off to do the reading otherwise it just tells you how warm your wrist is. Both the compass and barometer are pretty accurate too.

Looked into this a while back......Some of them do a "barometric trend" graph / chart which is supposed to be the most useful aspect (?). However, some of the charts were much easier to read than others, so I guess you decide what you want it for and buy the one which meets your requirements. I had thought that the "trend" graph would be most useful, if it's the rising pressure theory you are interested in.....

Mine does display a mini graph showing wether the barometric pressure has risen or fallen. I think it displays the previous 24 hrs aswell as the current reading.
