The device contains sensitive pressure sensor built-in with sophisticated and proven software that predicts weather for the next 12 ~ 24 hours within a 30 to 50km (19-31 miles) radius.


  1. The accuracy of a general pressure-based weather forecast is about 70% to 75%.
  2. The weather forecast is meant for the next 12 hours, it may not necessarily reflect the current situation.
  3. The “Snowy” weather forecast is not based on the atmospheric pressure, but based on the outdoor temperature. When the outdoor temperature is below -3°C (26°F), the “Snowy” weather indicator will be displayed on the LCD.


Atmospheric Pressure is the pressure at any location of the Earth caused by the weight of the column of air above it. One atmospheric pressure refers to the average pressure and gradually decreases as altitude increases. Meteorologists use barometers to measure atmospheric pressure. Since variation in atmospheric pressure greatly affected by weather, it is possible to forecast the weather by measuring the changes in pressure.

To select the display mode:
Press and hold [BARO] button for 2 seconds to toggle between:

  • ABSOLUTE the absolute atmospheric pressure of your location
  • RELATIVE the relative atmospheric pressure based on the sea level

To set relative atmospheric pressure value:

  1. Get the atmospheric pressure data of the sea level (it is also the relative atmospheric pressure data of your home area) through the local weather service, internet and other channels.
  2. Press and hold [BARO] button for 2 seconds until “ABSOLUTE” or “RELATIVE” icon flashes.
  3. Press [UP]/[DOWN] button to switch to “RELATIVE” mode.

  6. Press [BARO] button to save and exit the setting mode.


  1. The default relative atmospheric pressure value is 1013 MB/HPA (29.91 inHg), which refers to the average atmospheric pressure.
  2. When you change the relative atmospheric pressure value, the weather indicators will change along with it.
  3. The built-in barometer can notice the environmental absolute atmospheric pressure changes. Based on the data collected, it can predict the weather conditions in the forthcoming 12 hours. Therefore, the weather indicators will change according to detected absolute atmospheric pressure after you operate the clock for 1 hour.
  4. The relative atmospheric pressure is based on the sea level, but it will change with the absolute atmospheric pressure Chan after operating the clock for 1 hour.

To select the measurement unit for the barometer:

  1. Press the [BARO] button to enter unit setting mode.
