EleVte - App Review

Do you want to know where you are (Latitude and Longitude), as well as your elevation?

This is what this App offers, with the unique (as far as I am aware) possibility of putting altitude on the Apple Watch face as a complication.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The App is simplicity itself. The home, indeed only, screen offers the choice of choosing to have altitude displayed in Feet or Metres, as well as the update speed (Fast and Faster).

The display then informs you of the altitude in the chosen measurement, together with an estimate of accuracy, as well as Latitude and Longitude to 9 (!) decimal places (even Maps only shows 4).

The App on the Apple Watch fairly mirrors this information; it is obviously preferable to have it in the Dock so that it is quicker to access (when needed).

The real beauty is that the Altitude can be displayed as a complication directly on the Apple Watch face.

The App Costs a nominal $1.

Especially if you have an Apple Watch, and are interested in your altitude, this is your only choice to not have to mess about with at least a button.

There is a good article on the accuracy of GPS here.

The App is self-contained, so no concerns on this front.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Altitude as an Apple Watch complication - unique.
