About location accuracy in standalone mode


Samsung watches use phone's GPS location if the phone is nearby and connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. This is a built-in Samsung optimization aimed at improving watch battery life. This means that you may get inaccurate distances or shot tracking it the phone is nearby, but not in your pocket. For example, if you leave the phone in your golf cart and walk to the fairway, your watch will show distances and track shots based on your cart's location. To prevent this from happening, please turn off Bluetooth on your phone or on  your watch after starting the round. Alternatively you can start airplane mode.
