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, turn off Bluetooth on your phone or on your watch after starting the round. Alternatively, you can start airplane mode.
