"Ascent/descent from the watch is discarded, as it's notoriously inaccurate (I've run along enough canal paths to testify to that). As soon as the Fetch server gets hold of your route, it trots off to a third party service to get more accurate info. If you refresh the page showing your route, it should have had enough time to get the data back."

A good job too - when I put the data from my watch into strava (boo, hiss) for the Taunton Marathon it said the lowest elevation was over -400m and the highest elevation was over +10,000m which is a pretty big jump off the top of Everest!

Got something to say?
