As I posted in another thread looking for a spare wrist band it is a hardware problem.right a tvyhe spot where the antenna cables come out of the housing the insulation is gone and so is my GPS reception. I made pictures as well. You can see them in the other thread. Omate won't do anything about it and I simply can't find a place where to buy such a strap.
There are no pictures now available - can you please send updated links?

Open the watch. 4 screws.
Lift out the battery
Take out the plastic spacer. 2 screws (Red). Yes, I lost one.
The charger connector lifts straight up and off (Blue). Also, there is some glue or something that holds it in the upper right quadrant of the picture. And the sticker in the bottom right sticks to electrical components on the board below. I believe it may be made to tear if you lift this spacer out but mine didn't.
Here is the guts of the watch.
Zoom in on the bottom left quadrant showing metal of antenna connector touching... something else metal.
I just put a bit of label on the metal something to prevent touching.
Hi,( new to this)
I have also an Omate Truesmart which has the same issue as all of you. Not detecting GPS satellite.
Planned to use it for my Sports Tracking but due to the GPS issue.
Without this function, the watch seems redundant to me.
