Guys how can I find an Alti-Barometer application for my Galaxy Watch 4 Classic ? Anyone have any ideas, I would like to install the original one from the samsung store.

It is called “Compass”, but I cannot remember where I got it from (PlayStore or Galaxy Store, or came with the watch/US version).

forget the samsung store...
if it's not on the play store you have to wait for it to come or choose another app :(

...btw, it you swipe down on the compass app (preinstalled) you also get pressure and altitute

I have a Gw4 classic non LTE version but swiping on the compass app does not show altitude etc, for me it's just the compass. I checked for updates but no any available. What compass version do you have? Mine is on 1.0.00.63.

Just tried this myself. It appears the swipe is a bit finicky - try it again, quite deliberately, from bottom to top. It should eventually get you to a prompt to enable location in order to get the altimeter and barometer working. You may also find, as I did, that it is again finicky to swipe back to just the compass - again be quite deliberate to swipe down on the small compass icon.

Damn, you are right! I was seeing this horizontal bar on the bottom so I had been trying to swipe for ages, but I just tried again and it worked, but it is a hit and miss thing; from the 50 attempts of swiping it works once 🤣 I guess they have to fix the touch sensitivity area on the compass app

I discussed this matter with Samsung members, of course no any result, But the good news is that after today's update CUJ2 this bug is fixed and now you can easily swipe to see all info.

    It came pre-installed on my watch (the uninstall option is grayed out)
    This is the icon
