    Hi. My Apple Watch 6 OS 7.02 altimeter does not work. I’ve seen some other reports on this on the net. Anyone know how to get it working or if it is a big that Apple knows about?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried contacting Apple Support or making a Genius Bar appointment with the nearest Apple Store in your area? if not, I recommend you do so being that your Watch is new.

    Haven’t done either. Others on the net have contacted Apple support and all get the same results- a hardware test is done that finds that the altimeter is working. I was hoping to find out if anyone knew of a fix or if one was in progress. Ill contact support to get the problem reported. I am not going into a store due to the pandemic, so that is not an option.

    And guess what- as some others have reported, it just started working on its own. My theory is that it needs a range of barometric pressure over a few days to calibrate itself. There has been a significant change here in the last few days.

    That's good to hear! Thanks for updating us.
