Amazfit Stratos 3 not only provides 19 mainstream sports modes, including those for professional athletes, such as triathlon, compound exercise, trail running and more, satisfying most sports enthusiasts' needs. But also the GPS positioning accuracy and battery life are improved. In this post, we’ll tell you how to search GPS and improve the GPS accuracy with Amazfit Stratos 3.

How to start Amazfit Stratos 3 GPS?

The Amazfit Stratos 3 watch automatically activates GPS positioning when entering the workout preparation page for outdoor sports such as running, and notifies you once positioning is successfully activated. Also, GPS positioning automatically deactivates when you quit the workout preparation page or complete the workout.

GPS search remains active for six minutes. You will be prompted to re-position yourself if the positioning attempt times out and fails. If you remain inactive for 20 minutes after successful positioning, the watch automatically turns off positioning to save power. In such cases, you must re-position yourself before proceeding with the workout.

Amazfit Stratos 3 positioning suggestions:

In order to improve the GPS accuracy, it is recommend you to use Amazfit Stratos 3 GPS positioning in open outdoor areas, and wait until the positioning is successful before beginning any workouts. If you are in a crowd, raise your arm to your chest to accelerate positioning.

Amazfit Stratos 3 Auxiliary GPS (AGPS):

AGPS is a kind of GPS satellite orbit information data which helps the Amazfit Stratos 3 accelerate GPS positioning.

When the Amazfit Stratos 3 smartwatch remains connected with the mobile phone through Bluetooth, the watch regularly synchronizes and updates AGPS data to the Amazfit Watch App on a daily basis.

AGPS data expires if the Amazfit Stratos 3 has not synchronized data with the Amazfit App for seven days. If this happens, positioning efficiency can be compromised, and you will be promoted to update your data through system messages.
