Hello, guys! I’ve been using the Amazfit Pace sports smartwatch for a month and every day I’m loving it more and more. When I got it at first, I thought, I’ll just be happy with the watch and run/walk tracking functionality.

But being surprised to the infinity, I found that it does much more. And by saying “more”, I mean “a lot”. Really. I’m discovering new features every day. And considering the price, this is obviously beyond my expectations.

Their official description says:

Amazfit Pace watch features smart notifications and vibration alerts for calls, messages, and emails. It gives you direct access to live weather forecasts and doubles as a stop watch, compass, alarm, and activity monitor. Pace automatically tracks your daily steps, distance, calories, and sleep.

Who could expect a cheap sports smartwatch will provide you accurate Altitude and Air Pressure when you are flying in a plane? Or provide you the latitude and longitude when you are trekking with your friends in a mysterious jungle or mountain? Well, you don’t need to fly on a plane or be in a deep jungle to avail these features. Those are always there on your wrist. You just need to know how to access them.

I’ve decided to write blogs about those so you can easily know about them without searching for hours. You might know about some features which you could miss forever, who knows?

At first, if you don’t know what Amazfit Pace sports smartwatch is, you can have a look at my previous article “How To Add Custom Watch Faces in Amazfit Pace“. There I described what this small budget sports smartwatch is. Now I’m gonna describe how you can track Latitude, Longitude, Altitude and Air Pressure in your Amazfit Pace sports smartwatch.

Altitude

I believe, you already know what Altitude is, right? If you can’t remember at this moment, let me remind you. In brief:

Altitude is a distance measurement, usually in the vertical or “up” direction, between a reference datum and a point or object. The reference datum also often varies according to the context. Although the term altitude is commonly used to mean the height above sea level of a location, in geography the term elevation is often preferred for this usage.

So normally, we refer altitude to measure the distance between your position and the average sea level. Or, how high your current position is, from the average sea level. So when you are climbing a mountain or flying on a plane, you can just have a look at your Amazfit Pace and instantly know your height.

Air Pressure

Air pressure is something we don’t feel always because we are always in the more-or-less same air pressure so we got used to with it. Theoretically:

Atmospheric pressure, sometimes also called barometric pressure, is the pressure within the atmosphere of Earth (or that of another planet). In most circumstances atmospheric pressure is closely approximated by the hydrostatic pressure caused by the weight of air above the measurement point. As elevation increases, there is less overlying atmospheric mass, so that atmospheric pressure decreases with increasing elevation.

The best moment you can feel the change is when you are flying and the plane is taking off or landing. Do you feel your head is getting lighter when the plane is going high? Or feeling that something is pressing your head hard when the plane is landing? That’s because of air pressure. The high you go, air pressure goes low. The low you get, the air pressure increases.

Okay! Enough with these. Now let me directly tell you how you can see all these in your Amazfit Pace sports smartwatch.

Steps:

  • Click the button or tap the screen (if you have configured “Tap to Wake Screen” option already. If you don’t know how to do that, I’ll describe it in another post later. For now, just google it) to wake the smartwatch.
  • Swipe right and right until the “Compass” displays.
  • Tap and hold the screen.
  • Voila! You will see all these four options.

That’s all you need to do.

Easy, huh? Did you know that you can see all these info in your Amazfit Pace? Even if you did not, now you know.

I hope you liked this feature. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section below. If you have any confusion or any problem getting the info, also let me in the comments. I’ll try to help. Cheers!
