The second one available in the E-M1 replaces the exposure compensation bar and is only active when you half-press the shutter release and is viewable on the screen with the live histogram. Also unfortunately, it is only a level for the horizontal plane, but that's better than nothing and I can't seem to keep anything level without it, even with the grid lines turned on.
Oh, I think I got that this afternoon once, but I haven't yet been able to divine what I did differently to make it happen, haha.

On the level, I have the same issue.
