Does it give driving directions? I have a Bluetooth com system in my motorcycle helmet and I'm trying to figure out if it will feed driving directions to my helmet.

For GPS Navigation to work properly, should I have Gear S3 Frontier LTE version or is it possible to navigate offline? In case I'm in woods forgetting to bring my phone along, am I lucky to get the maps showing on my Smartwatch? Thanks in advance!

See 2:48. GPS works offline, but no maps without LTE, wifi, or bluetooth connection. Other apps may be able to save apps for offline use.

I know you mentioned before you got the LTE version of the s3. so does standalone mode mean you're using the LTE on the watch? or is the video showing us watch the watch can do completely independent of LTE and connection to a phone?
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible - 3 years ago
Standalone is completely independent of LTE.

I find the GPS based pace accurate, but the walking speed function that can be used on the watch face without GPS is way out. I'm editing a new video to show this now.

It would be good to take a dedicated GPS along to find out if either Samsung device was correct.

How long should I expect the battery to last in standalone gps tracking mode while running or cycling?
Fahad Usman
Fahad Usman - 3 years ago
+Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible thank you +Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible​. It's pretty decent battery life if it actually lasts 5 hours or so in active GPS mode. Did you get a chance to log something like a marathon or a Grand Fondo with it?
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible - 3 years ago
You can see at 2:57 the battery is at 79% after about an hour of walking + me shooting the video and a bit of time before I went walking. So it should last at least 5 hours.

I understand that I need to wait until the GPS locates where I am before I start my run.
But the time has started, thereby making my times inaccurate. Am I doing something wrong?
I just press 'start running' in S health, but the time starts before it has located the signal. So the time is wrong, or I start straight away and the distance is wrong. Hmmm.
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible - 3 years ago
Sure. I mean I start the Speedometer app first. It is the app from Samsung. You need to download it. It is free and called Speedometer For Gear. You can see me using it in my other video here https://youtu.be/B3t_96uqnGc. Sometimes it takes a while for it to locate the GPS, so I go standalone and start the speedometer app well before I start my work out.

Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible hi. Please explain what you mean by switching the speedometer on first? For me the frustration is the same as the poster on this thread mentioned. I tested the Gear S3 against my Polar V800 last night. There was 300m difference at the end of a 5.6km run. But this wasn't the biggest worry. The Samsung took a little while to locate the satellite. The problem was recording the run on the map. It seems to sometime not record the first few kilometers. I sync with Strava, and although my run is exactly 5.6km (fixed route) Strava shows the last 3 runs were 4.4km, 4.1km and 3.3km. That is significant. Any advice?
Steven Morris
Steven Morris - 3 years ago
okay. I'll try that. It seems a bit messy, but that should at least give me accurate stats. Maybe it's something for Samsung to think about. Thanks again for your help.
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible - 3 years ago
I turn the speedometer on first and wait till it finds a GPS signal, then you can switch to the running app in S Health to start tracking.
Gary Woodward
Gary Woodward - 3 years ago
Would love to know how your watch is so accurate, my Gear S3 Classic its a good half KM out in standalone mode . Its the only disappointing thing about this watch.
John Foster
John Foster - 3 years ago
totally agree.
i've bought a Fenix 3 HR now.
Gary Woodward
Gary Woodward - 3 years ago
I tested it on a second run today and waited until the white GPS symbol had stopped flashing and then kept an eye on it for the whole run to see if there was any signal loss. There didn't seem to be. I also tested it
against my phone while watch was in standalone. End of the run my phone accurately gave a reading of 7.5 km whereas my watch said 8.2 km. I can only think that it's a combination of poor GPS signal and low grade GPS chip in the Gear S3. Any other ideas welcome!
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible - 3 years ago
Do you wait till the watch finds the GPS signal before starting? I have noticed it can take quite a while for it to find a GPS signal in stand alone mode, so it might be missing part of your workout. I turn the speedometer on first and wait till it finds a GPS signal, then switch to the walking app in S Health to start tracking.

Yes. In S Health settings under Health nudges. It even congratulates you when you do move after a reminder.

can this watch do back tracking like fenix sapphire 3?
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible
Ray Hope Make The Impossible Possible - 3 years ago
No reason it couldn't if you can get a navigation app with that feature. The S-Health app I was using doesn't have navigation, it was just tracking.

I found the standalone GPS totally inaccurate compared to my phone and Garmin by 10%. It also varied when using the walking option and running options. I have now sent mine back as it was too unreliable in standalone mode.
