2010 Tech-watch Geek Series
Of course, I have a Casio that I have been enjoying this year since Mary gave it to me last Christmas. I used the altimeter function most recently last Saturday up on Stonyman Mountain, where I took this measurement.
Here you can see I have a reading of 1060 meters, or about 3,286 feet. My reference point is the sign, which says that the actual altitude is 3,837 feed. This variation is typical for altimeters reading barometric pressure...it's important to find a reference point like this handy sign early in the hike to peg the variation.
