I like the GTR 2e, but GPS is horrible. When you go into "Workout" (for example "Outdoor cycling"), it takes ages for the watch to find GPS signal. After it does, you press "GO", but just after a few seconds you get "GPS not available". Then after a few seconds you get "GPS available", then again not available, then available, and so on. After a few hundred meters signal stabilizes, but the beginning of the workout is not on the map (no line in the Zepp app). Sometimes, after 50 or 55 km, watch loses signal again, and you get "GPS not available", then again available, and so on.

Does anyone else have that problem? A also have Amazfit Pace and it never had such problems.

Did you try factory reset? Maybe something is messed up and you could give it a go before you send it in for RMA.

I tried factory reset. I tried reinstalling the Zepp app. Nothing works.

I bought the watch on Aliexpress. The seller now wants me to upload the video of the problem, which I will do.

I sent the seller video in which the watch lost GPS signal 5 times in 10 minutes during workout I sent them screenshots of Zepp app in which the GPS losing signal is visible (see attached). The seller won't RMA the watch, "because it is not defective". GPS behaving like this is normal in his opinion. The seller is official Amazfit store at AliExpress.

So there you have it, folks. See attached screenshots. GPS like that is normal for Amazfit watches. Never again.
