[MODE] again will return you to the normal clock display.
HOW TO VIEW THE TEMPERATUE
MEMORY
Press the [MEMORY] button once. The temperature
display will show the maximum temperature. (This reading
indicates the maximum temperature recorded since it
was last reset.) Press [MEMORY] button again and
you’ll see the minimum temperature. Pressing
[MEMORY] a third time returns you to the current

Important:
1. The accuracy of weather forecasting when using
pressure trend alone is about 70 to 75 percent and,
therefore, we cannot be held responsible for any
inconveniences caused by an inaccurate weather
forecast.
2. The weather forecast symbols may not reflect the
current weather condition. The symbols are
forecasting the future.
3. A ‘Sunny’ forecast covering the night-time reflects
fine clear weather.
HOW TO READ THE ILLUSTRATED
WEATHER FORECAST SYMBOLS AND THE
STORM ALARM
Your digital Barometer automatically detects the
barometric pressure changes in your area. Based on this
changing pressure, it displays an illustrated weather
symbol indicating the weather forecast. The displayed
weather marks are indicating a forecast 12 to 24 hours
ahead, for a radius of approximately 30-50 km (20 to 30
miles).
If the Barometer detects stormy conditions, the storm
indicator (lightning bolts) will flash and an alarm will
beep. The alarm sound will stop automatically after 1
minute to conserve power. If you’re not present when
these alarms begin, the audible beep will sound every 3
minutes as a continued storm warning until the weather
forecast improves.
HOW TO READ THE CAROMETIC
PRESSURE TREND
The Barometer gives you the pressure trend for the last
hour, indicated by the arrow displayed in the upper left
corner of your display, next to the weather icon. The
weather is improving if this trend (arrow) is rising, or
getting worse if the trend (arrow) is falling. Here’s what
it can look like:
To stop the sounding storm alarm, press any button. The
storm icon will continue to flash until the weather forecast
improves.

WHY WEATHER FORECAST AND TREND
MAY APPEAR TO CONFLICT
HOW TO SELECT THE TEMPERATURE
UNITS OF MEASURE
The weather forecast symbols and the pressure trend
signs may show information that at first sight may appear
contradictory.
“°F”
POSITION
“°C”
POSITION
The pressure trend will only show the most recent
pressure trend, since the measurements are recorded
on an hourly basis. The weather forecast symbols
however indicate a longer term development of the
weather which is forecast to occur over the next 12-24
hours.
READING IN “°C”
READING IN “°F”
The switch on the back of the Barometer selects between
degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit. To select Celsius units,
set the switch to °C. To select Fahrenheit units, set the
switch to °F.
It often happens that the pressure will rise or fall
temporarily. With such temporary pressure changes the
trend sign will show “Up” or “Down” respectively but the
longer term weather forecast symbols will not change if
the short term temporary pressure change has been too
small to influence the weather.
THE RESET BUTTON
If the unit does not operate properly, use a pointed object
to push the [RESET] button once, which is located on the
back of the unit.
We recommend that our users should review the
Barometer frequently, because the short-term pressure
changes shown by the trend sign may give an early
indication of a change to the weather forecast over the
next few hours.
LOW BATTERY SIGNAL INDICATION
If the voltage of the batteries becomes low, the ‘BATT’
indicator will be displayed. Please replace the batteries
when the ‘BATT’ indicator is displayed.

FREE STANDING OR WALL MOUNTING
WALL MOUNT
STAND
On the back of the Barometer you’ll find one recess hole
for mounting on to the wall. Place once screw ( or
whatever device you choose ) into the wall until the head
extends a little more than 4 mm from the wall. Place your
Barometer over the screw in the hanger slot, until it locks
into place.
Your Barometer comes with a built-in stand for tabletop
use. On the back of the unit, ease the plastic from its slot
and place the stand in the recess holds located at the
bottom of the case.
MAINTENANCE
The following suggestions will help you care for the
barometer so you can enjoy it for years.
1. PUSH DOWN
GENTLY
2. PULL ALWAYS
FROM UNIT
3. PLACE THE STAND

1. Keep the Barometer dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry
immediately. Liquid might contain minerals that can
corrode the electronic circuits.
2. Use and store the Barometer only in normal
temperature environments. Temperature extremes
can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage
batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
3. Handle the Barometer gently and carefully. Dropping
it can damage circuit boards and cause the Barometer
to work improperly.
4. Keep the Barometer away from dust and dirt, which
can cause premature wear of parts.
5. Wipe the Barometer with a damp cloth occasionally
to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals,
cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the
barometer.
6. Use only fresh batteries of the required size and type.
Always remove old or weak batteries. They can leak
chemicals that can destroy electronic circuits.
