The Swiss-made Tissot T-Touch is a multifunctional watch that can be used during outdoor activities or for everyday uses. The T-Touch has a compass, altimeter, alarm, chronometer, clock and thermometer, and indicates meteorological tendencies. An altimeter tells you the current elevation in either feet or meters.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Find the three buttons on the right edge of the T-Touch. The top button is labelled with a plus sign, the middle button with a "T," and the bottom with a minus sign. Press the "T" button to activate the crystal.

  2. 2

    Tap the crystal directly under "Altimeter" near the 2 o'clock location. The hour and minute hands will both point toward "Altimeter" and you will see the digital screen above the 6 o'clock position display the elevation.

  3. 3

    Adjust the elevation by pressing the plus and minus buttons on the right side of the watch.

  4. 4

    Press the "T" button on the right side of the watch to set the elevation. The hands will return to their clock setting after 30 seconds.

Tips and warnings

  • You may need a calibrated altimeter to determine the exact elevation with which to set your T-Touch.
