Nice widget. Exactly what I was looking for. Uses the altimeter of the watch which is calibrated when gps is operational so don’t blame the widget when the value is wrong, just put on the gps and wait

Thanks for your review. I'm glad you understand how to use it! As you say, if the watch isn't calibrated the widget will show the wrong value.

It shows an altitude of 1300m on my Garmin Vivoactive 4S which is about 1000m too much...

As the description says, the widget simply reads and displays the watch's own sensor value. What you see is what the Garmin system provides. An uncalibrated watch gives poor results. I understand some watches are worse than others.

Nice widget. It calculates the altitude perfectly

Thanks for your kind review. Fortunately, it seems, your watch - like my own - returns good altimeter sensor values.

Vedo altitudine ma non in metri..e' possibile cambiare unita' di misura sul garmin xt 735?

Before leaving a poor review please contact me directly with any questions.
As I said in the description the app uses the units set for the watch.

Altitud no disponible en mi fénix 735

Thanks for your review. I guess the 735 only supports altitude from GPS and you didn't have 3D fix.
Unfortunately, as I only have access to my own watch, I don't know the capabilities of all the other possible devices.
A shame, I'm sorry it doesn't work for you.

About 2,000ft off

Please contact me first if you have a problem. As the description says, the widget simply displays the altitude returned from the Garmin firmware. If your watch hasn't been calibrated, can't be calibrated or doesn't have access to altitude, unfortunately the results will be poor. The app has no way of knowing if the value it gets from the underlying hardware is good or bad.

It does not work with my Forerunner 735 XT.
I just can see 0000
August 7, 2019, simonletts
I'm sorry the app doesn't work with your watch. It just displays what the Garmin system gives it. If there's no data available it should display 0000 and a message in the top label.
Unfortunately, as I only have a Vivoactive HR that is the only real device I can test.

Funziona perfettamente sul mio Vivoactive HR. Ottimo lavoro, grazie!

Grazie per la tua gentile recensione.

Ne fonctionne simplement pas même après avoir débuté une activité comme recommandé par le développeur.
May 31, 2019, simonletts
Je suis désolé que mon app ne marche pas sur votre montre. Je ne peux tester qu'avec mon VAHR. "Contact Developer" avec votre e-mail, pour plus d'aide.

Question: I have a VA3. It says "No altitude 0000"
Do you have any kind of error codes analysis?
I believe it's my watch to blame. I also cannot see floors climbed, and battery drains quickly.
May 30, 2019, simonletts
You could try starting an activity, letting it run for a short while and then seeing if the altitude & floors climbed show sensible results.
If you use the Contact Developer link and include your email address I'll see if there's anything more I can do.

Works perfectly on the Vivoactive 3 Music

Thanks for your review and rating. I'm very happy to hear it works well on your watch.

It uses up all your battery. It must be always connected to GPS, as my watch runs out of battery within a day after installing this widget. Before I would last at least 4 days
April 8, 2019, simonletts
I'm really sorry you have issues with my widget. It certainly isn't intended to be permanently connected to GPS. It simply reads the altitude once and displays it. After a short period, as it's a widget, it should time out anyway. It's been installed on my Vivoactive HR for several weeks with no problems but that has a barometric altimeter.
Please contact me directly through the Contact Developer link and I'll see if there's anything I can do to help.

I always wanted to program exactly this big character display for my VHR – now you did it. Thank you so much. Could you add sunrise and sunset with the same font size?
May 3, 2019, simonletts
Well the trouble is, if I added anything it wouldn't be Simply Altitude any more!
So, instead of adding, I've made a separate "Simply Daylight" widget (https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/da49e757-95ad-4151-bcf1-498a857a50e6). It shows sunrise & sunset in large font, just like you suggested. I hope it works for you.
