    I did this too, flying home from vacation. I found that the initial takeoff was displayed as a descent on the watch, but after a couple of minutes, the altitude on the watch started ascending, and kept doing so until we started our descent. The descent was modeled much more accurately by the watch. I wonder how it would perform in a single-engine plane without a pressurized cabin (highest reading mine displayed was 2800 ft or so).

    The air pressure in the cabin might actually increase during takeoff initially until the plane gets a little higher. So your watch might have been correct. Sometimes my ears will pop when the engines spool up for takeoff.
