How to set up GPS on Amazfit Stratos 3?

Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 3 supports four different satellite positioning systems to further improve positioning speed and trajectory accuracy. In the watch "Settings > General > Positioning Service portfolio", there are three navigation combinations to choose from: GPS+ Beidou, GPS+ GLONASS, and GPS+ Galileo.

At the same time, Amazfit Stratos 3 also adds AGPS-assisted positioning function, which will automatically improve the speed and accuracy of GPS positioning.

If you often do outdoor sports, it is recommended that you turn on the AGPS expiration reminder in "Settings > General > AGPS expiration reminder". The Amazfit Stratos 3 will remind you to connect to your phone for synchronization when the AGPS expires.

Positioning recommendations: 

GPS positioning should be carried out in the outdoor open space. Wait for the positioning to be successful and then start the movement. If you are in a crowd, raising the arm to the chest can speed up the positioning.

Assisted GPS (AGPS): 

AGPS refers to a kind of GPS satellite orbit information data, which can help the watch to locate GPS faster.

While maintaining the Bluetooth connection between the Amazfit Stratos 3 watch and the mobile phone, the watch will actively synchronize and update AGPS data with Amazfit App at a regular time every day. If the watch does not synchronize data from Amazfit App for 7 consecutive days, AGPS data will expire. After the expiration, the positioning speed may be affected, and you will be reminded to update by notification messages at that time.
