Just got the latest update to my Galaxy watch 5, and then went for a walk and tracked my walk as normal. Well, not quite. I was told within about 30 seconds I had completed my first mile. 7 minutes of slow walking later it record my second mile and then not long after a third mile. In the exercise app I can see the track is completely wrong - the GPS is all over the place. No permissions have changed, no settings have changed - all that has happened is I received the latest update. Thanks Samsung, perfect.

My Watch 5 seemed a little sluggish when changing screens after I'd upgraded. I read that clearing the cache on the watch can resolve issues, as it can with the phones. I couldn't find an official Samsung instruction on how to clean the watch's cache but found a tutorial on YouTube and my watch is great now. At your own risk, feel free to give this a try, or search for a guide your self. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=24gkYZ7H0xk
