    This is an official Samsung app, or is this an app you developed?

    Published by Samsung but I took part in developing it.
    If you have any questions and someone from forum needs help and have any ideas to extend this application don't hesitate to ask.

    Not free now! Probably worth $1.99 though. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yes, it is paid now. I suppose it is worth this money. It will be free a few days next month yet.

    In meantime a new features were added
    1. Added possibility to edit own waypoint.
    2. Added support for runtime permissions due to Tizen 4.0+ requirements.
    3. Added showing alitude on compass view (n/a if not returned by GPS).
    4. Added showing sunrise and sunset time for current coordinates. Shows n/a if not available.
    5. Added showing sun position and sunrise/sunset times. Sun moves counterwise to clock (from east to west). 6h shows midnight, 12h shows noon.
    6. Added importing a waypoint details with link to google maps to a html file.
    7. Added sharing a waypoint file. It helps to transfer the file to a phone or a computer by Bluetooth or WIFI conections.
    8. Fixed a few minor bugs.

    This upgrade should be alive at begin next week (depends on Samsung team).

    Samsung Galaxy Watch doesn't support magnetometer sensor at all. However, in this case most of apps uses GPS sensor to calculate compass heading - also Android WearOS apps. Using GPS has one drawback. Makes user to move in order to calculate correct measurements.
