Total Ascent

Description

Displays the total ascent, as provided by the watch. This is useful for watches which lack a barometer and don't expose this data through native data fields.</p><p></p><p>Total ascent is displayed in metres or feet, depending on the altitude units in your device settings.</p><p>━━━━━━━━━━━━</p><p></p><p>NOTE on accuracy: Total ascent is provided by the watch (not calculated by the app). If the watch does not have a barometric altimeter (e.g. most Forerunners), then elevation data comes from GPS data, which may not be totally accurate. (This is why Garmin Connect automatically corrects elevation data for watches without a barometric altimeter).</p>

Confused between this datafield and Elevation Change. Is this datafield equivalent to how Garmin Connect and Strava measures Elevation Gained (ignoring the accuracy issues)?

Hey Aslam, This field is just total ascent (as reported by your watch). Elevation Change is total ascent minus total descent (both as reported by your watch). (Another way to implement elevation change could've been to record elevation at start of activity and subtract it from current elevation, but I went with "total ascent - total descent" because it seemed to work slightly better. Neither Total Ascent nor Elevation Change make any kind of elevation corrections - they just show the data provided by the watch. This data field should show exactly the same data as the Total Ascent field on a watch with a baro altimeter. For watches without baro, it's the same as Garmin's internal total ascent field which is based on GPS (they don't make it available it because of accuracy issues.) If you don't have a baro, Garmin Connect and Strava will correct your elevation data after you upload your activity. If you have a baro, they won't apply corrections unless you manually turn on that feature. Thanks, Will

It's good but the value based on the gps is almost doubled. Could you improve the elevation corretion used by garmin for the devices without barometer? If this is possible this would be very wonderful! Thanks!

Hey Simone, thanks for the review! Unfortunately, total ascent is only able to display the "GPS elevation" reported by the watch in real time. Any elevation corrections applied by Garmin (or Strava) only happen after you sync your activity to Garmin Connect. I'm aware that the GPS elevation is not very accurate (which is why Garmin hides Total Ascent for devices without a barometer), but people requested this app which is why it exists. Hope it can still be somewhat useful for you.

It basically works, but it also demonstrates why Garmin hides the value. On my Forerunner 245 the value in this field was almost twice as high as the corrected value of Garmin Connect or Strava. My small test was walking up our local 50meter hill ... this datafield showed 94 at the end, Garmin app said 53 and Strava 54.

Thanks for the review. I agree 100%, but that's why I have the "NOTE on accuracy" in the store description. Also, the only reason I created this app was because people asked for it (with the full knowledge that GPS elevation isn't very accurate.)

Para Forerunner 235, es de lo más fiable que he probado. Se queda instalado.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
