The jumpmaster feature is for use by experienced skydivers only. The jumpmaster feature should not be used as a primary skydiving altimeter. Failure to input the appropriate jump related information can lead to serious personal injury or death.
The jumpmaster feature follows military guidelines for calculating the high altitude release point (HARP). The watch detects automatically when you have jumped to begin navigating toward the desired impact point (DIP) using the barometer and electronic compass.
