    RCVD?

    hi,

    just wanted to point something i have noticed with my gmw-b5000 syncing with iOS.

    usually i get less then 50% hit rate even when my watch is in range with the phone. (same room, less then 3meters, direct line of sight)

    i have noticed that if i just launch the app some time before (just launching, not connecting manually) the watch is trying to auto sync i get close to 100% hit rate.
    my conclusion is that iOS and its power management have something to do with the low success rate.


    i wonder if you notice the same behevior on iOS ?

    Other than the initial set up I don’t let my G’s talk to IOS unless I’m there to supervise the meeting.

    Mine syncs generally without any problems on its own. I suspect it has something to do with your app settings. Do you have the app permission set to "always allow" access to your location? I believe that impacts its auto-sync ability. That's how mine is set up and I rarely have any problems.

    No problems here, but I restart my iPhone every day. This may be helpful.
