I changed the pressure units to inHg, but the corresponding dial doesn't change the numbers to represent inHg. Did I do something incorrect?
No, you did absolutely right. Unfortunately I'm unable to fix this at the moment because I'm really busy. Keep in mind it's only a graphical issue of the dial, the values are correct!

Introduction

Google's Wear OS lacks many things from competitors... One of these is a Barometer-Altimeter application. So why not building one by getting the inspiration from the best one out in the market?

Read the instructions before installation!

Features

Barometer:
● Real-time pressure display digital
● Real-time pressure red hand indicator
● Graph for the past 6 hours
● Pressure trend over the past 6 hours
● Background collecting of pressure
Notification for possible storms

Altimeter:
● Real-time altitude display digital
● Real-time altitude red hand indicator
● Graph for the past 6 hours
Auto calibration of altitude based on weather data
Manual calibration

TILE:
Thanks to the Unofficial Tile API: Tile showing pressure and altitude!


Settings:
● Enable / disable storm alert
● Enable / disable automatic calibration of altitude
● Set manual altitude
● Metric / imperial units
● Advanced settings





Installation instructions

● Only supports Wear OS, not standard Android
● Android version must be 8.0+
0 - If any previous version in installed, go to "Settings" > "Apps & Notifications" > "App info" > "Alti-Barometer" > "App Info" > "Clear data" > Confirm
1 - Download the latest .apk file
2 - Install the .apk with adb (tutorial on the third post)
3 - Start the app
4 - Grant the Location permission (optional but recommended, if you want the automatic calibration)
Done!




Update instructions

If you want to update this app to a newer version, uninstall the old version and then install the latest using ADB!




Detailed info about the app

Every 5 minutes a the app will get the pressure from the sensor and store the data.
The weather notification is sent if 4 hPa are dropped in the past three hours.
The trend seen in the barometer is calculated in the past 6 hours.
For the first 6 hours the trend is going to be inaccurate because it doesn't have real data to compare.
Altitude is measured using the barometric formula, considering standard the pressure of 1013.25 hPa.

I have the app installed for a few days but it seems I can't get a reading for the altimeter. The tile is also stating a network error when ever I go to it and won't populate the information at all. I have cleared data multiple times but it's the same! Using a TicWatch pro 4G/lte USA variant! Perhaps its not compatible with this wear os watch! I appreciate any info on this matter! Thank you!

Just checked online and it seems your watch does not have a barometer on board which is what will be causing the error. The watch can't read real time air pressure.

Thank you so much for the quick reply! Although it does not work on my watch, you have have a beautiful app here and please continue developing!
Even though there is no onboard barometer I thought it would populate such information through the gps location and weather apps. I guess I assumed too much from my watches capabilities. Thanks again! :giggle:

No problem, though Its not my app, I am no where near intelligent enough to make any app. I just happened to be subscribed to this thread and got an email about your reply so thought I would help you out.
Cool, thanks for the info! Have a good one! AND, I think everyone is exceptionally good at something that allows their intelligence too shine! App developer or not!

Hi, I love your application, it's fantastic.

Recently I am having a conflict problem. I have a Ticwatch Pro 3 GPS, at some point when I do a heart rate measurement from Google Fit or from PulseTic it doesn't work, it doesn't measure my heart rate.

I didn't know what was going on, I did a factory reset, and it worked again. I have been installing all the third party apps I had and the different settings until I detected that it stops working when I install and run Alti-Barometer. It is very strange.

I must say that I also activate til of the app, in case that could be the reason.

Can anyone check the pulse to see if it works for them?

    Features separated unit setting for altimeter and barometer! :D

    Updated!
    Automatic calibration should now work!
    Please tell me if this function works... Perform a clean installation of the app and wait a few minutes for it to get the calibration. :)

    The reason was that I misunderstood the meaning of data given by the weather api... The pressure given by the weather data is not referred to the ground pressure, but is the sea level pressure. This small (and stupid) mistake made an error gap that grew the more you climbed.

    I'm sorry and thanks for your feedback!
