The Apple Watch – Not For Me – I want a Fenix 3

Barometric Altimeter Sensor Hole on Foreunner 910XT 30

Fixing the Altimeter on my Garmin Forerunner 910XT

As many of you may know, I’ve had numerous problems with the altimeter on my Forerunner 910XT. Since lusting after the Forerunner 910XT back in October 2011, I bought one in February 2012.
