Display the values of the barometer (LG G Watch R)

The LG Watch R has a built-in barometer.
It will be great, to display the values of the barometer.
I have found among sensor only heart rate monitor, pedometer, accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.

It would be great as altitude calculated using this and atmosphic pressure already exists from weather. And could be used as a baseline calibration. This would mean no more having to put a reference altitude it. Thanks if it can be done.

I was hoping for this when I bought premium. Even if you tap on the baro to create a reference alt and double tab to set it back to the baro.

Also thought it would be included in the premium so this is really a feature missing. Having a Huawei watch with build in baro this would be great for both weather and altitude monitoring.

As well hoped for this function, when buying premium. Now Huawei Watch Classic.
When will a {...} read out will be implemented? I'm sure, the actual library/API supports it?

Thanks in advance for reply!

Agreed, I have a watch that has a barometer, and as a pilot I would love to put this in my watch face. (Yes, even though it is not official, its just cool)

I agree, it would be very cool to be able to display sensor values when not connected to a phone/internet...

I have a Huawei Watch and watchmaker premium is great!!!

Great idea. With the possibility to view the barometer value, I can forecast the weather much better than my local forecast company.

I too vote for feature which will read barometric presure from internal sensor of watches. It is very important feature to calculate altitude etc. It can be online callibrated to closest weather station barometric pressure.

I have a LG watch Urbane with build in barometer. LG had a watchface with the altitude on it, but there is more than ons thing I don't like about other features of that face.
There should however be a build in calibration method if we want to use it for altitude calculation. I'm a hiker and all hiking watches have a calibration mode.

Want to add distance to the watch face does anyone know where to find it
