Another problem with the Apple Watch

Some modern smart mobile devices, including the Apple Watch, among other things, offer an altimeter function based not only on GPS data, but also on information from a special sensor. Most regular users hardly need height determination, but the feature is there. Recent days have shown that at least the Apple Watch Series 6 and Watch SE have problems determining altitude in certain weather conditions.

In particular, in Germany, which has been in a low-pressure area in recent days, some users of this watch have found that, according to their devices, they are at an altitude of 200-300 meters. It is unclear how, in addition to resetting the settings, to recalibrate the altimeter, but it is likely that this problem may occur in other regions.
