Alti failure - what to do..... Can't Post

My first jump of the year and it dawned on me that, after exiting at 12k and enjoying the scenery on a chilly belly fly that my alti had worked til 9k (checked it at 11k 10k )....

at 9k it stopped - I realised, nice and calmy, that the ground was coming [but I had plently of Altitude] - but the alti was not - so I gave it a tap and it showed 4500 and I waved off and pulled. My normal pull is 3500 but, as i didn't know my altitude for sure I simply pulled as per aff training - if you dont/cant be sure of your altitude then pull.
I am a noob (44 jumps) and was wondering if there was anything alse to add to this that would help when it happens again.

the alti was a new alti 2 that had worked my last 20 jumps. Obviously the alti is now grounded until it goes back to the dealer for repair.

Thanks in advance....
