Some users of Samsung Gear and Galaxy smartwatches reported they can't use the watch in standalone mode because it never acquires GPS signal. We are actively investigating the problem. Unfortunately we can not reproduce the issue on any of our test watches, which makes it much harder to isolate and fix. We added some extra reporting in the latest watch app update, which we hope will help us catch the problem soon. 


In the mean time, you can still use the watch app in 'Connected' mode. Open Golf Pad settings / Smartwatch sync and selected 'Connected' for Samsung watches. Note, you will need to have the phone within Bluetooth range of the watch when using this mode. 


We will update this article as soon as permanent fix is available.
