Is there any info on what this temperature is supposed to mean? :-) surely this ain't the temperature in the room I'm in.

@hugo Not the room temperature but the one that the temp sensor collected.

You're wearing it on your wrist, so your body temperature misleads the sensor.

Hikers have the same problem with hiking watch wrists, with temp. sensors. It needs to rest away from your body for a moment, to measure the correct room temperature.

@devnull yes but it wasn't in contact with my wrist :-) so I'm not sure what is affecting the sensor.

@devnull (it is on the picture, but the temperature was wrong before it was on my wrist to clarify)

@hugo OK, then something else must be affecting the sensor (or the sensor isn't calibrated properly ?). But I can't say for sure.
