LIS2DE12 Accelerometer data bytes

LIS2DE12 datasheet says it provides 8-bit accelerometer value. But then again it says "The LIS2DE12 contains a 10-bit, 32-level FIFO". Why?


I am assuming it is 8bit, but then why do I need to read two bytes (for example, to get X-axis value from OUT_X_H [29h] ) ? Isn't it supposed to be 1 byte for a single axis, 3 bytes for a single FIFO and 96 bytes for whole FIFO as opposed to 2bytes, 6bytes and 192 bytes?
