Using Altimeter profile

The Altimeter profile calculates altitude based on reference values. The reference value can either be sea level air pressure value or altitude reference value. When the Altimeter profile is activated, the altimeter icon is shown on the display. For information on setting the profile, see Setting profiles.

When the Altimeter profile is activated, you can access the following views:

  • top row: your current altitude
  • middle row: altitude information on a 12-hour timeline in graph form
  • bottom row: toggle between time and temperature with View

If you are wearing your Suunto Ambit2 on your wrist, you will need to take it off in order to get an accurate temperature reading because your body temperature will affect the initial reading.
