Use barometer of Wear OS devices for altitude

Right now very few smartphones have a barometric sensor, and external altimeters are not always a convenient choice. For those who have Wear OS smartwatches, I think it would be a great idea to get the altitude from the barometer of the watch (especially if it was possible to calibrate it).


Meanwhile, thank you for the fantastic app!

Given the recent update to Wear for Locus, is there any plan to add support for this?

Hello,

we still have some issues with correct HRM synchronization from the watch. But once we fix it the addition of barometer support during track recording could be relatively easy. But it will probably be a couples of weeks or months before a next larger update, so maybe then, I will definitely see what we could do about it.

Best Regards
