As you know, F5 has independent built-in GPS sensor,  you don’t need to connect to your phone to use the GPS to start running.

But how? How to activate the GPS before your training?

Important Update! We have fixed the Chinese characters in Google Map and the wrong positioning problem, please download the latest App version here. The latest version is 3.1.6.

First, go to Sports section.sport1

Press the enter button.(the top one)

And then you’ll go to the multi-sport interface. walking

Second, press the switch button.(Sport)

You’ll go to the running section.(White means selected)running1

Third, click the enter button to enter the running. positioning1

startFourth, click the enter button to start. The flashing iconicon means F5 is trying to get a positioning. You need to go to open air to get a positioning. Usually it will take 1 min ~ 6 mins to locate, the first time use will take longer and please make sure the GPS side upwards, you’d better stop in place, that’ll help the F5 to get a positioning.





When it located, F5 will vibrate and the icon will not blink anymore. Located

Now you can start your training. Go for a run!

Fifth, click the enter button to stop the running. STOP

And then you’ll get these options.options_副本

    I bought a F7 watch, the clock worked fine with the GPS, and everything was really good.
    But in the middle of running the running program stops, and the clock is initialized (time zones are not correct).
    Why, and what to do?
    Please help as soon as possible.
    Thanks in advance

    The two buttons on the right stopped working. The watch is working and the touch button is also working. Bluetooth connection is fine. I just cannot use the two buttons on the right. Is there a way to fix this?
