Polar S710 import shows metric Climb value as Feet

Post by LarryT » Sat Mar 07, 2009 9:19 pm

When I import data from my S710, the total of all lap climbs exceeds the climb shown in the main window. For example:
Lap climbs: 40 60 265 125 95 30 155 0 (total 770)
Overall climb: 740

At first, I assumed this was because of rounding. But if lap climbs rounded to the closest 5 feet, the maximum discrepancy would be 2.5x7 = 17.5 feet, much less than 30 feet. So I would guess the numbers are all rounded up.
