Anyone else's galaxy watch 4 have problems with the location while out walking/running? 4 different workouts recently have been so off track. Here are some of my work outs, the one with the purple arrow is claiming I went up on to the grass area which I didn't, the one where I drew a purple box, that purple box was my actual work out where I just jogged around it 6 times, the one around the lake shows that I'm in the lake, and then the last one I'm actually on a treadmill so not walking around as it shows.

Make sure theres no other fitness apps running in the background at the same time. Toggle on high accuracy in the Samsung health app.

I'm finding the same. Gps accuracy, particularly when walking and running, can be way out even if no buildings obstructing things. I've tried Samsung Health, Strava, Sporty Go - all seem to struggle at times. Gear Tracker is coming to Wear OS though, and that was fabulous on the Active 2 so I'm pinning my hopes on that.

My watch 4 is accurate using Samsung Health, I have found this very reliable.
