I received my watch and right away I wanted an altimeter. I downloaded this and I couldn't fight it how to install it. My fault!!! I just got the watch. I emailed the Developer and he replied right away with directions on my watch.
Altimeter is great easy to read while hiking. Exactly what I needed.
Customer service is great. I will look for
apps from this developer first.

Thanks for your kind review. Very happy it does what you want & glad I could help.

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.
12 Agustus 2020, simonletts
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.
09 Agustus 2020 | Versi 1.2.0.b
It is really a useless app when your watch doesn’t have a barometer.
There is no way to actualize it with GPS
09 Agustus 2020, simonletts
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!
05 Agustus 2020, simonletts
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.

Great widget, works well with the Venu. Thanks for programming this useful tool!
16 Juli 2020, simonletts
Thanks for your kind review. Good to know it works with the Venu.

Extremely inaccurate sometimes off by 1000 ft
13 Juli 2020, simonletts
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?

Non funziona su Forerunner 245
01 Juli 2020, simonletts
I'm sorry you couldn't get my app to work on your watch. Why not contact me for assistance before leaving a poor review? In what way did it not work? If it really doesn't work I want to know more so I can fix it.
The Forerunner 245 doesn't have a barometric altimeter. Did you make sure you had a good 3D GPS fix before using the widget?
The app just reports what it gets from the watch.
12 Juni 2020 | Versi 1.2.0.a
Works fine on my Forerunner 645 and altitude displayed is within 10 ft of what I know to be accurate.
01 Juli 2020, simonletts
Thanks for your review. I'm glad it's working for you.

As the title says, it's quite simple. Just altitude is displayed. I went for the myABC widget instead, as it has more useful information
22 Mei 2020, simonletts
Thanks for your review. My app simply shows your altitude, in a large font, as that was all I needed. If you want more information myABC would be a good choice.
08 Mei 2020 | Versi 1.2.0.a
perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Simply altitude!
08 Mei 2020, simonletts
that's great. thanks!
05 Maret 2020 | Versi 1.2.0.a
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
05 Maret 2020, simonletts
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.
29 Februari 2020 | Versi 1.2.0.a
It shows an altitude of 1300m on my Garmin Vivoactive 4S which is about 1000m too much...
01 Maret 2020, simonletts
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.
26 Januari 2020 | Versi 1.2.0
Nice widget. It calculates the altitude perfectly
01 Maret 2020, simonletts
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?
07 Januari 2020, simonletts
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
07 Oktober 2019, simonletts
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.
01 Oktober 2019 | Versi 1.2.0
About 2,000ft off
02 Oktober 2019, simonletts
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.
07 Agustus 2019 | Versi 1.0.0.b
It does not work with my Forerunner 735 XT.
I just can see 0000
07 Agustus 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.
04 Juni 2019 | Versi 1.0.0.b
Funziona perfettamente sul mio Vivoactive HR. Ottimo lavoro, grazie!
05 Juni 2019, simonletts
Grazie per la tua gentile recensione.

Ne fonctionne simplement pas même après avoir débuté une activité comme recommandé par le développeur.
31 Mei 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.
30 Mei 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
12 April 2019, simonletts
Thanks for your review and rating. I'm very happy to hear it works well on your watch.
08 April 2019 | Versi 1.0.0
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
08 April 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?
03 Mei 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.
