Simply Altitude

Description

This simple widget tries to provide an easy way to see your current altitude (elevation).</p><p></p><p>By default my vívoactive® HR can only show elevation as a data field in an activity app. I sometimes find it useful to know my altitude separately from an activity data screen. This widget attempts to provide this. It simply reads and displays the device's current altimeter value.</p><p></p><p>The altitude is shown in metres or feet according to your device settings. You change the units by changing the device settings. For example on my vívoactive® HR I follow Settings - System - Units - Elevation - Feet/Meters. </p>

Does what dev says it does. Like he mentioned it’s pulling data from the watch so your watch is the issue if it’s not showing the correct altitude.

Thanks for your understanding review. I recognise the limitations of my widget with non-barometric devices. I decided it wasn't up to me to not make the app for those watches, it was up to the user to understand their watch and make an informed decision as to whether the app was for them or not.

It is really a useless app when your watch doesn’t have a barometer. There is no way to actualize it with GPS

And that's a really useless review. I describe the way it works and the weaknesses, so why did you bother to install it? Don't blame me, blame your watch.

I can’t say that it works to well on my vivoactive 3. It’s off by about 100-200 feet. I might need to calibrate? I don’t know how thought so if I could get help that would be nice!

Thank you for your review. If you need help it's better to use the Contact Developer link than a review. If you read the app description you will see I have already included a link to Garmin's instructions about how to calibrate the vivoactive 3.

I'm sorry you can't get my app to work. It just shows what the watch gives it. If your device isn't calibrated you won't get good results. The problem is with the device not the app. If you use your watch properly the widget works well. If you think the issue really is the app why not ask for help before leaving a poor review?

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
