Samsung Health removed Map Activity Tracking?

I have a Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch, and have been using the Samsung Health app for several years now. Up until a few months ago, when I would walk or run the app would track via GPS my route and show a map connected to the relevant activity. When was this removed, or if it's hidden how do I get it back?

@Cosmicdust Hello, if you have activated the synchronization with Samsung account, your data must be in the cloud. Greetings.

It's not the data, there is no map anymore. Where did the map function go?

@Cosmicdust: Can you confirm which watch you have, and the make/model of the phone you have it synced to?

@Cosmicdust: Please open the Samsung Health app on your Galaxy Watch > Exercise > Workout > Running (as an example) > If you're prompted to allow Samsung Health access to the Location Permission, tap the tick > From the Running menu, scroll down to Location (On) > High Accuracy. Scroll back up to the top, and make sure that the GPS icon is solid, and not flashing, as this will indicate that it is ready to start tracking your location when you start the exercise. 

If you encounter any issues with activating the Location option, head to Settings > Connections > Location, and tap to activate.
