Stryd has a barometer, but no GPS. The baseline elevation of your Stryd can be off due to variances in manufacturing of the barometer, and more than a few hundred feet is not unexpected. The relative elevation is very accurate (within 1 meter), more accurate than GPS (but it will always be off by the baseline level). If you repeat the same run, the absolute elevation may be different as the barometric pressure varies from day to day.
