I need to keep my altimeter on screen for long period (im doing skydiving and cant touch screen when falling) but the altimeter wont stay on the main screen it keeps falling back to the clock display..

How can I set up to keep altimeter on and on the main screen for more than couple seconds??

 

Also I know there's a app called "Skydive Altimeter" but I cant find it on the samsung app store. Why's that it wont show to me?

Thank you for that information. The Galaxy store isn't compatible with iOS devices. The skydive altimeter and the skydiver altimer are available on the Galaxy store and not the Galaxy watch app for iOS. Due to compatibility issues, these apps wouldn't be available for your device. Give this link a try for more information about compatibility: https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/gear-s3/device-compatibility/

Have you checked to see if there is a watch face for your gear S3 that has the altimeter built into the settings?

I did not find any watch face with this function. But, does that mean you can't keep an app for an indefinite time on the home screen? Will he always return to the watch face watch display?
