Description

Altimeter-Barometer-Compass widget</p><p>It's a bit different that the native one on devices that have it, as I also include a graph for some of the lastest samples from history (up to 80 samples on some devices).</p><p></p><p>If you like the app, and want to buy me a cold drink, you can do so by way of https://www.paypal.me/jimm58</p><p></p><p>Note: if you have a vivoactive 3 devivice, and switch the side the button is on, you must re-calibrate the compass, or the direction will be incorrect.</p>

What’s New

0.12 - update due to a bug in the 4.30 Firmware on the va-hr. On it, you'll see the current baro, but the graph won't show the data. (bug still in 4.40 FW)</p><p>0.14 - 645/645M support</p><p>0.16 - new devices

Great! This is exactly what I was looking for! Works perfectly for me with vivoactive 3 and I really like the simple and pretty design.

Nice widget. However, it is not possible to calibrate the pressure. Could you please add this feature?

Developer Reply

That calibration is done in the firmware itself. I just report what the FW says.

Why am i negative altitude??

Developer Reply

I simply display what the firmware reports. When was the last time you calibrated the altitude?

The app is very good, but how can I change the unit of measuring altitude into meters

Developer Reply
June 26, 2019, jim_m_58

That's based elevation units set on your watch. Settings,System,Units,Elevation on many devices

vivoactive3: it shows wrong direction, (opposite direction...).

The native heading field will also show what the widget shows if you've switched sides for the button and not calibrated the compass. The watch is "upside down" unless you calibrate the Compass.

This is exactly what I was looking for. In the description it says to calibrate the compass where do I find this option. My compass is backwards.

You have a va3/m and the instructions are the owners manual. Go to Settings,Sensors&accessories, Compass, Calibrate. Not doing so also impacts things like the heading data field, and isn't specific to this app.

forerunner 645 I also have north turned. What with this? several times calibrated.

Developer Reply

I don't see this on a 645M. What FW version are you using? What does the native heading data field show? Please use Contact developer on the right for assistance

Der eingebauter Kompass passt überhaupt nicht!!! Der zeigt genau in die entgegengesetzte Richtung wie ein Handelsüblicher Kompass. Wer weiß wie zuverlässig der Barometer funktioniert!!! Unbrauchbar und daher deinstalliert!

Developer Reply

If you have a va3, and switched the sides for the button, you must re-calibrate the compass. You'll see the same with the native heading field if you don't re-calibrate the compass.

Would be more useful to have some sort of time-scale for the alt and baro. Otherwise the graph is fairly useless.

Developer Reply

Both graphs are about 160 minutes

Baro shows OK but looks that I am under the ground 93 meters.

I display what the firmware reports. Start a GPS activity and it should calibrate base on which watch you have.

Thank you very much. This ABC widget is an excellent choice to my 645.

I love this widget, it's simple and super useful. It works fine (N points north) on my vivomove3 and I keep my button on the left. The only thing that doesn't work: the widget will not advance to the next if I try to use the sensor bar on the side of my watch, it advances to the next widget if I swipe the screen.

Works great for me on vivoactive 3. I would give it 5 stars if the compass would flip directions when you flip the button on the watch to the left on the settings. For now I just have to remember that south is north and east is west.

Developer Reply
June 21, 2018, jim_m_58

I have no control of that. It's a FW problem when the buttons are flipped and you also see it in the FW's "Heading" data field.. I reported it soon after people got the device last fall and let e know. When the firmware gets the fix, the widget should work fine. Until then, keep the button on the right side....

Vivoactive HR - FW 4.40 doesn't solve the baro - graph problem

Developer Reply
June 13, 2018, jim_m_58

Yes. 4.40 has been out for a couple months and doesn't fix it. I reported to garman even before that, and all that can be done is to just wait for a fix. I can't display data I don't have.

the compass is great but the Alt is totally out of wack.

Developer Reply
May 8, 2018, jim_m_58

I just report what the firmware sats for the altitude. Have you calibrated it on your watch? Used GPS within a few hours, etc?

Useful barometer and altitude additions to the compass. Works well on FR645.

Hi, do you know when the new FW that will allowed the pressure graph to be displaied will be released? thks

Developer Reply

If you are using the vahr, there is a bug in the firmware where that information isn't available. Hopefully, the next version of FW will fix that bug.

Good, reliable app! However, I'm having same problem as mentioned by users befor me. On vivoactive 3, wearing on my left hand and the button on the inside, is showing wrong position of the cardinal points (the other way around). Please fix this problem!

Developer Reply
February 19, 2018, jim_m_58

It's a FW bug, and the native heading field is the same with the button on the left.

Please use "Contact Developer" to let me know which watch, firmware, etc

Alexander Seliverstov

Good idea to have all in one screen, but I can suggest two improvements: ability to calibrate barometer (altitude and sea level pressure) by start button and the other one is about displaying pressure not just in Mars, but according to system settings or at list widget additional preference, I prefer mmHG.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
