Another problem with Apple Watch. Smartwatches now detect altitude incorrectly

Published

on

Some modern smart mobile devices, including the Apple Watch, among other things, offer an altimeter function, based not only on GPS data, but also on information from a special sensor. Most ordinary users hardly need height detection, but there is a function.

Recent days have shown that at least Apple Watch Series 6 and Watch SE have problems with determining the altitude under certain weather conditions. Particularly in Germany, which has been in a low pressure area in recent days, some users of these watches have found that, according to their devices, they are at an altitude of 200-300 meters.

It is not yet clear how to re-calibrate the altimeter besides resetting the settings, but it is likely that this problem can manifest itself in other regions as well.
