Getting the most out of your GPS watch battery


Do you find that your battery drains out too quickly? Here are some tips to make it last longer:

  • Turn OFF Activity Tracking
  • Reduce the back-light timeout.
  • Reduce the timeout to ‘Watch’ mode (the lock screen of the watch).
  • Turn OFF the optical heart rate monitor (a big battery drain!) if you are not using it or do not need it.
  • Turn OFF Bluetooth/Wireless (another big battery drain!).
