Review of the Tissot T
Altimeter. Wherever you have a barometer, you usually have an altimeter, as well, since it is possible to calculate altitude by measuring atmospheric pressure. The range is -400 meters (-1300 feet) to 9000 meters (29,500 feet) with a resolution of 1 meter (3 feet). Chronograph. Resolution of 1/100 of a second, maximum time of 9:59':59". The T-Touch's stopwatch can record a single split time. Alarm. The alarm is a daily alarm -- nothing special -- though it is nice and loud, which I really like. The only thing I don't like about the alarm is that the only way to set it is by incrementing or decrementing minutes which can get a little tiresome if the time you want to set it to is 12 hours away. Fortunately, the minutes do speed up the longer you hold down the buttons (there are three different speeds) which makes it better, however I would rather be able to set the hours, minutes, and meridian separately. Analog and digital displays.View the Tissot T-Touch photo gallery.The Tissot T-Touch is the wilderness lover of the Tactile family which currentlyconsists of the High-T, the Silen-T, and the newest member of the family, theTissot Navigator3000. You might not guess just from looking at it, but theTissot T-Touch feels just as at home in the woods, in the mountains, or on longtreks as it does in the office or at a cocktail party. The T-Touch combines goodlooks, rugged functionality, and impressive innovation in way you rarely see inthe watch world.Features of the Tissot T-TouchTouch crystal. I love showing this featureto people for the first time because they are almost always completely amazed.Like the rest of the Tactile family, the T-Touch has a touch-sensitive sapphirecrystal. Rather than jamming repeatedly on a mode button, simply activatethe crystal with the right center button, then touch the crystal in one ofseven different areas to change modes, or to return to the default time mode.Compass. The Tissot T-Touch's built-in compass can measuremagnetic north as well as calculate geographic north. Thermometer. The range of the T-Touch's built-in thermometer is -10 C (15 F) and 60 C (140 F). (If you're in an environment which significantly exceeds that range, you should be more concerned about your life than your watch.) It is accurate to about 1 degree C (1.8 F), and the resolution is .4 C (.7 F). Barometer. The range of the built-in barometer is 300 hPa (hectoPascals), and it is accurate to + or - 3 hPa. The resolution is 1 hPa.
