    hehe - Brilliant Izak!

    I always say - if the fish don't mind being wet then neither do I!

I use mine extensively and change the battery about once every 18 months or so. I suspect that yours has a problem to be using a battery in a month. Take it back to Manex and see what they say.

    incidentally, I remember the Xlander. Last i saw, they were also over R4000. You got in at the right time it seems.

    Take a look at the Casio Pro Trek range, they come in a wide range so they vary in price (R1500 - R6000).
    They give actual barometer reading and store the info for a period (more expensive = longer period). The top of the range one's will even give you an audio warning if the baormeter suddly drops by a certain amount per hour.

    More toys for the boys it seems? I'm with Izak. Bugger the weather, you catch or you don't, so what, it's all about the trying
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Feels like jumping on the bandwagon after it left the station... but must say this bought myself the Polar AXN 300 with all the bells and whistles last year for R1600 from Due South for just the same reasons(and couldn't find anything smaller), measures up to the T compared to www.weather.co.za and happy ever since(batteries included), but what it boils down to is that when i feel like fishing "I go fish" no matter what the watch says, like Herman said "its all in the trying", they either gonna bite or not! But still a nice to have!
