Does my Forerunner 10 record or display elevation?

The Forerunner 10 records and displays time, distance, pace and calories. The watch does not show or record elevation.

The Forerunner does record the GPS positions (latitude/longitude) in the activity track. Garmin Connect will map these positions with a digital elevation model to look up the elevation for each point. As a result, an elevation profile will be created on the Details page.

If an elevation profile is not created delete the activity from Garmin Connect, and upload the activity again from the Forerunner 10.
