    Every site or platform has a different way of handling the data it imports. Some take the data as is while others reprocess it and apply their own calculations and smoothing algorithms to it. This second instance will result in discrepancies between the watch and the site, causing issues like you are seeing. Strava recalculates based on the data points collected and computes its own distance, pace, elevation, etc. It has been requested many times for them to use the watch data but they will not.

    I hope this helps answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
