Hi,
I have a doubt regarding Suunto Barometer, hope somebody can enlighten me.
Situation:
I live in Aveiro, Portugal, pretty flat city, about 12kms from the sea.
I have an Ambit 2 Sapphire and Core Regular Black, both with latest firmware.
Ambit2 and Core Profiles: Automatic
Barometric Pressure on Sea level I take from here: this station is near the beach so I guess I can consider it's value as Sea level reference no?
Barometric Pressure on the city I see it here and here.

Using Sea Level Pressure as reference the Core states 1019 hPa and the Ambit2 1020hPa, it seems ok.
Using Ambit2 FusedAlti as reference, it states 1030hPa.
Both measures at 9am (in the website 1 and website 2 it says something like 1025-1027hPa between 7 and 10 am).
Which one is more trusty? Should I calibrate using sea level from that website?
Am I doing something wrong? I am a real noob in terms of this, and yes I've read the manual of both watches before asking here.

Thanks for your time.

Can I suggest that for activities for which the Ambit & Core were designed, namely outdoor pursuits, accurate absolute elevation and accurate change in barometric pressure are essential but accurate absolute barometric pressure is somewhat irrelevant. Calibrate to altitude and interpret barometric change.
