Ok, you need to press and hold all 4 buttons in the corner of the watch until it shuts down. Then wake it up by pressing any button and then you can choose language again.

Not like the manual says, you don´t choose the nearest city north/south, you choose the nearest city in the same Latitude, so you choose the nearest city to east/west! even if it is in the other side of the world.

Here in user guide page 26. it is explained:
http://ns.suunto.com/Manuals/Core/Userguides/Suunto_Core_Userguide_EN.pdf

Also you need to always set up the altimeter if you change location, so it shows correct data for current location.

You need to google what is sea level air presasure of Dallas and you need to google also what is elevation above sea level of dallas and put these figures into Core altimeter.

I got information that Dallas is 131 meters above sea level. (You can also google it to get the exact location altitude. I did only quick search)
Then sea level pressure is around 1016 mb.

Hope this helps

Question

Suunto Core: cumulative ascent/descent significantly over estimating

The cumulative ascent on my watch is vastly overestimating the actual ascent (and the cumulative descent mirrors the cumulative ascent). The issue is particularly pronounced in very windy conditions (recording up to double the actual ascent) but also occurs when there is little or no wind. I've had the watch three years and this is a recent problem. This issue appears to be specifically related to my watch because a friend using an identical watch on the same trips did not have this problem.

I would advise you to use Duracell and Energizer batteries.
Could you please send your watch in for repair if your battery keeps running out this fast. There are two ways to send you watch in:

1) You can go to a nearby retailer and have them send it in for you. You can find retailer by using this link: http://locator.suunto.com
2) You can fill in a service request yourself and send the watch to our service center. Please go to suunto.com/support --> repair services --> online service request. Pick your country and fill out the service request form.

We recommend that the watch does not enter in contact with chemicals, as you might loose the warranty.
Also, there is a high possibility that the unit gets damaged. As mentioned in our limited warranty, if the unit has been exposed to chemicals including, but not limited to mosquito repellents, the warranty is not applicable.
