Gear Sport GPS Issues Samsung Health and Strava

Highlighted

Hello,

 

I have a Samsung Gear Sport and I find sometimes when I go running using Samsung Health the GPS doesn't start until 1-2km into my run. I also link my Samsung Health with Strava and find the data doesn't match. If I run 10km with Samsung Health it only logs 8km with Strava. Anyone else have this issue?

 

Thanks.

Yep, same here. Must be the calculation algorithm or s/t. Anyways, pls don't ask me about running with Gear S3 because I have a terrible experience, juts look at previous posts.

I have the same issue, all the blogs on how to rectify are bogus, even when you put the location off battery saving mode it didn't even pick me up until 3km in, feel like throwing this watch in the river to relieve frustration.
