    Was just taking a look in the activity app on my iPhone and noticed that it doesn't keep track of the height I've covered during a day...

    Is the Apple Watch not capable of keeping track of changes in height like the iPhone does?

    Has a barometer since the iPhone 6 onwards.

    Ah, ok -- my 5S doesn't.

    And no, the AW doesn't have a barometer, either.

    Since we're on the subject --

    What do you do with height/stairs/climbing data?

    I've had a Garmin watch for a few years, and it's been sort of interesting to see the GPS-based altitude changes, mainly during my bike workouts.

    It would also be useful for someone like my sister. She gathers plant specimens across the wilderness, and logging every piece of location data, including altitude, is part of the research.

    On a daily-wear device, though, I'm not sure what I'd do with it.
