Additional sensors include an array for tracking both altitude and barometric pressure, a compass, temperature, and according to the manufacturer’s description, “a 3-axis accelerometer” that “detects body movement to measure step count and distance traveled.” 

The exercise-oriented timepiece also has GPS with GLONASS support for accuracy and connectivity, which it uses to track speed and pace, among other data.
