Incorrect altitude changes

First, I am aware of the changes in barometric pressure affecting the altitude readout. That's how the altitude is calculated in these watches. However, after a year of satisfactory use with very accurate altitude reading (I usually calibrate the altitude measurement at a trailhead or when I'm at a summit) this watch no longer works. I get an altitude change of around 200 feet or so for a real altitude change of around 400'. I may get a change of 1/2 the actual change in elevation. Very frustrating. I was going to trash it but I couldn't understand why the altitude readings are so far off when
