Ok. Tell me if I can send you more information.

For example if the difference with the last is until 5% different its green
, until 30% yellow, more is red.
Also we can put a text suggesting turn up the volume for better results.

I need to start a new activity and then share.

Also I don't know if it's a good idea Distance save in the Journal.  Only
saves the temp and humid values and the last measurement.
May be we can save these values in the activity_root/data directory from the
activity, not pollute the Journal and resolve the resume issue. What you
think? The change is easy.
