4.0 out of 5 stars Great little gadget
This arrived with usual Amazon promptness and as soon as i opened the package i was impressed. Lovely looking unit and with a lanyard too. All the functions work well and for the price i think it is worth every penny. I have used it on hills and small mountains too as well as at sea level. Seems to be accurate as well. The temperature gauge and weather forecaster seems...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pellor
This is a well constructed piece of equipment, but please don't rely on it to give you a reliable height above sea level because it won't. I am unaware of anything that will do so, whether it is an air pressure based calculation or a GPS type. Air pressure is so variable depending upon the weather etc that the only reliable method of calculating one's height is a OS...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little gadget, 7 Jun 2012

This review is from: Pellor 6 In 1 Digital Compass Altimeter Barometer Thermometer Weather Forecast Clock (Misc.)

All the functions work well and for the price i think it is worth every penny. I have used it on hills and small mountains too as well as at sea level. Seems to be accurate as well. The temperature gauge and weather forecaster seems precise too. Overall a very good little gadget ideal for the hill walker or mountaineer.

4.0 out of 5 stars High Hopes, 1 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pellor 6 In 1 Digital Compass Altimeter Barometer Thermometer Weather Forecast Clock (Misc.)
Very lightweight and once the controls have been mastered, very effective. Worth finding from an OS map how high above sea level your home or how high your base is. Then surprisingly accurate and sensitive. Operating buttons poorly marked.

The unit itself is ok, but the operation instructions are rubbish. Why doen't the manuafacturer make them available as a pdf, so they can be downloaded in a readable size?

4.0 out of 5 stars bill, 21 Sep 2011

the only problem is the altimeter,the device measures or senses air pressure -that pressure of course varies according to the weather.unfortunately when you are at fairly low elevation say a few hundred metres above mean sea level-the reading for elevation varies too much.it would be ok if you are in mountain country of thousands of metres where an error of 50 metres is negligible -but at 150 metres its unacceptable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pellor, 6 July 2013

This review is from: Pellor 6 In 1 Digital Compass Altimeter Barometer Thermometer Weather Forecast Clock (Misc.)
This is a well constructed piece of equipment, but please don't rely on it to give you a reliable height above sea level because it won't. I am unaware of anything that will do so, whether it is an air pressure based calculation or a GPS type. Air pressure is so variable depending upon the weather etc that the only reliable method of calculating one's height is a OS map.GPS equipment can also be wildly out depending upon where the horizon is and how many satellites are currently in sight.
Apart from this and depending upon how much you want to know your true elevation, the Pellor is fine. The compass and temperature features seem to be reasonably accurate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless as a compass, 15 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pellor 6 In 1 Digital Compass Altimeter Barometer Thermometer Weather Forecast Clock (Misc.)
After some quick testing it seems this compass is of no use what so ever. A slight tilt to the left or right, and it'll completely change direction. For example, it shows the direction as West when tilted slightly left when facing North. So unless you're carrying around a level measure and wish to waste a massive amount of time making sure that it's level whenever you use it, it's of no practical use.

Even when it's placed on a flat surface it's out by up to 40 degrees. I would not recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Isn't very accurate, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pellor 6 In 1 Digital Compass Altimeter Barometer Thermometer Weather Forecast Clock (Misc.)
By starting to use it the calibration doen't realy calibrate it. Than it is so rough that my free iphone app is more accurate and works more stable. It's just a nice toy but nothing you can use for something serious. To expensive for the value.

I bought this for a trip to Gran Caneria and it worked really well. It's light and very easy to use, which is just what you want when out in the mountains. I can recommend this product to anyone wanting something like this.
