Galaxy Watch - Using the Altitude and Barometric Pressure Widgets (SM-R800 & SM-R810)

If you're an avid hiker, you can keep track of your achievements and distance using your watch. The altitude and barometric pressure sensors in your watch can quickly tell you how far you are above sea level and the current atmospheric pressure. In addition to the Alti-Barometer app on your watch, you can set up the Alti-Barometer widget on your Home screen.

Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch.
