***How to Weather Forecast***
Open the ToolX app and scroll down to Barometer View, make sure that at the settings hPa is set. Before bed time check the pressure level. when you wake up check the pressure level again. If the reading is lower around 3 hPa, it will be colder if the reading is lower around 6-9 it will be very cold mostly rain. If the reading is higher around 3 hPa the weather will be fair than the day before, if the reading is higher around 6-9 hPa Mostly it will be sunny.
- Very accurate compass reading
- Dynamic Barometric Pressure Graph
- Sensor reading can be set to Meter, Feet, hPa
- Max - Min and Initial Barometer Indicators
- Filtered Sensor Reading
- Easy to use Angle Meter
If your watch does not have a barometric pressure sensor, Altimeter and Barometer Page Won't Function. It will be hidden. HOWEVER, You can still be able to use Compass, Angle Meter and Bubble Level.
***KEEP IN MIND***
Barometric pressure varies when weather or temperature changes. So it is perfectly normal altitude changes when standing still. To get a general knowledge about Barometers please use google.
Compass sometimes require calibration to work properly. This is required by the sensor, not related with app. To calibrate, open the compass spin the watch around 360 degree a few times till degree changes rapidly.

- Direct GPS altitude: Easy Altimeter will get the altitude direct from the feed of your GPS.This mode greatly depends on the quality of your GPS receiver and atmospheric conditions.
- Altitude correction: Easy Altimeter calculates the earth surface altitude at your position. Very reliable if you are at ground level. Internet connection is required to perform the calculation.
-Altimeter. Altitude measured by your GPS sensor.
-Speedometer.Your speed measured in km/h or mph through GPS.
-Barometer. Atmospheric pressure measured by the sensor in your device in hPa or psi.
-Thermometer. Ambient temperature measured by the sensors in your device in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
-Hygrometer. Ambient relative humidity also measured by sensor in your device.
-Illuminance meter. Amount of light on your device measured in lux or fc.
-Integrated Google Map showing your current location and coordinates.
-You can share your measurements with your friends, or just export them.
With Outdoor Mater you can measure everything around you, whether you аre in the mountain or in the city. Outdoor Meter is great for people who love skiing, mountain biking, hiking, traveling, outdoor activities, weather, elevation, altimeter or just want to check their coordinates.
Feel free to suggest next features!
The observed value altitude can be calibrated, when the elevation at a location is already known. The approximate ground level elevation of where you are can be got from Google Maps.
Since the barometric pressure varies with the weather, this application may not give accurate results over a long period of time (say several hours), but the relative altitude/elevation is quite accurate for periods of ten's of minutes to less than an hour.
The rate of change of altitude is computed, which is useful to see how fast an elevator goes, or perhaps for skydivers, paragliders or birds.
Important note on Data Recording: Since the Android O/S is not meant to support an App running continuously as a background process, the only reliable way to continuously record data with this app, is to ensure that it is always a foreground process.

This app can be particularly effective when measuring changes in atmospheric pressure due to weather, estimating changes in altitude (on amusement park rides, elevators, car travel across mountains), monitoring air cabin pressure changes during an airplane ride, estimating the strength of a vacuum chamber, or even observing changes in air pressure due to photosynthesis and plant respiration within a closed system.

android.permission.WAKE_LOCK: Used to keep the device awake only when recording barometric data to csv. (Example: After pushing the record button, the app will continue to collect data even when placed in a pocket during a roller coaster ride, and will turn off only after data recording has been stopped.)
android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: A csv file is created and modified on the phone's internal memory.

No ads. No nonsense.
Great for hikers or anybody else who would like to know their elevation.
This is what is known in aviation as a "sensitive altimeter", meaning that altitude is calibrated based on a sea-level reference pressure. Touch the altimeter face to bring up the Kollsman adjustment window. Enter the current sea-level pressure (altimeter setting) to calibrate the altimeter. OR, enter the known local elevation to get the altimeter setting.
If you don't know the current altimeter setting, use 29.92.
See Wikipedia for more information about sensitive altimeters and how they're used: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altimeter. Aviation altimeter settings can be obtained from aviation weather reports (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/METAR) and airport information broadcasts (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atis) if you have an aircraft-band radio.
Pro-tip: use the Kollsman window to set the local elevation to zero, to get the local barometric pressure.
Preferences allow you to select altitude (meters or feet), pressure units (inches mercury or millibars), screen orientation, and keep screen on.
Not approved for aviation use. Compare to a real altimeter before you even think of using this, even as a backup.

Plain. Practical. Perfect.
Displays the current atmospheric pressure in as large a font as possible, no bells, no whistles, and certainly no fancy graphics.
What else does it not have?
- no altimeter function
- no manual calibration
However, there are a few gimmicks, such as ...
- configurable display unit and precision (via preferences or long click)
- a widget, just as plain as the main app, you can even disable displaying the unit to save some space
- a data logger function, with csv export and zoomable, scrollable chart view
- a configurable alert when pressure changes a certain amount during a certain time frame
That's it. Really.
Thought for cycling, mountain biking, trekking, hiking, skiing, backcountry skiing, mountaineering.
For weather forecasts: the Barometer monitors pressure and pressure trend, view last 24 hours pressure chart.
Tired of inaccurate altitude measurements given by your GPS?
Want to see and register your vertical speed and your elevation gain?
This application leverages the barometer sensor on your device to give you two possibilities:
- during outdoor activities, use your device as an Altimeter, to monitor altitude gains and drops. You will know your current vertical velocity (meters/hour up or down). Using the TrackAnalyzer feature, you will register: total track time, max and min altitude, total positive and negative altitude gain, number of positive and negative slopes.
- if you are in a fixed place, use your device as a Barometer, monitoring changes in pressure values over time so that you can understand how the weather is going yo change. Yuo can calibrate the Barometer with the exact altitude of the place you are, so that the applcation gives you an estimate of the pressure at sea level
