App for Garmin Vivoactive 3

Any suggestions of an app for my Garmin Vivoactive ?
Right now I have one that gives my HR and day/date/time on the face. I like when I get a low HR on one particular hill I do.

I'd like some sort of altitude function.

Also other suggestions. I am not a racer, and I don't do big rides. (now)

It's a little confusing, the VA3 is a watch, and also a computer. "Watch faces" are a type of software (people call software "apps" now) but Garmin means a particular thing by "app." A VA3 can run 4 different types of custom software: watch faces, widgets, data fields, and apps. In Garmin speak, an app is a way of recording an activity. The built in "bike" app is sufficient.

I really like this watch face, and these widgets.

Go to the "cycling" app and add a data field that shows altitude and elevation gain
