Session & Coaching

The quality of the satellite signal reception can be slightly affected by the environment and movement.

About the GPS: The Global Positioning System

(GPS) - and soon the Galileo European System - reads a position on the earth, in the sea or air within several metres. To identify a location, a GPS evaluates the duration read by electromagnetic signals from four satellite systems: it then simultaneously deduces three exact coordinates: space, position and time. 

To ensure effective reception, we recommend: 

1/ Before starting the session: 
- Go to a clear area, as far as possible from surrounding buildings and not under a tree.
- turn the device on and launch the GPS signal search. 
- the watch must be immobile while the signal is being detected (between 5 seconds and 2 minutes). You must wait for the GPS signal to be detected, indicated by the pictogram in the status bar of your phone.
- to optimise the search, place the watch on the ground to avoid interference from your body. 

2/ During the session: 
- Do not leave your phone at the bottom of your bag.Turn the screen outwards.
- If the distance measured is 0, that means the telephone could not detect the GPS signal. 
- Check your app is not configured for an indoor sport.The GPS turns off automatically for indoor sports to save battery life and to prevent incorrect distances.
