Difference between Asyncdata vs Fetch

What is the exact difference between fetch and async data. The official documentation says the following:

asyncData
You may want to fetch data and render it on the server-side. Nuxt.js adds an asyncData method that lets you handle async operations before setting the component data.
asyncData is called every time before loading the component (only for page components). It can be called from the server-side or before navigating to the corresponding route. This method receives the context object as the first argument, you can use it to fetch some data and return the component data.
Fetch
The fetch method is used to fill the store before rendering the page, it's like the asyncData method except it doesn't set the component data. The fetch method, if set, is called every time before loading the component (only for page components). It can be called from the server-side or before navigating to the corresponding route.
The fetch method receives the context object as the first argument, we can use it to fetch some data and fill the store. To make the fetch method asynchronous, return a Promise, nuxt.js will wait for the promise to be resolved before rendering the component.

Fetch is been used to fill the store with data? But in asyncData is this also possible to commit trough a store? I don't understand why there are two methods for.

Both methods are running server-side on the initial load, after that when you navigate through the applicatie it runs client side.

Can someone explain me the advantage of use these methods above the other?

Thanks for help.
