Hi, I've been experiencing issues with the untethered GPS on my Fossil Gen 5. I have searched here on the community and on several forums, and this appears to be a common problem. On one similar post made here (now locked) a comment was made 6 days ago by a community manager that a fix was rolling out (https://support.google.com/wearos/thread/29065334?hl=en&msgid=57665190); has anyone received this fix or is there any further update as to when this fix will be rolled out. 

Many thanks

Same for my Fossil Sport, unfortunately.

I just received my fossil gen 5 yesterday and I have been trying to figure out how to untether the GPS. I purchased this watch because I thought it had a stand alone GPS like my deceased FitBit Ionic and now I'm regretting it.

I was investigating the same issue on Fossil Explorist gen 4. Noticed the same thread and see it is now locked for reply. Would like the details of the update being rolled out as at 8th July so we can confirm if received yet or not. Also if its possible to seek out the update rather than waiting.

I have a Skagen Falster 3 (technically identical with the Fossil Carlyle) but since a few days I have the problem that Google Fit does not have ANY GPS signal. Running 8km isn't enough....tracked were 5,2km (instead of 8) and even after the hour I don't have GPS signal in Google Fit.

All updates are installed, GPS is turned on, BT off (to be sure that it's not connected GPS).

Resetting the watch did not help either :-(

I even activated developer mode to test the GPS module - after 2-3 minuten several satellites were found so it shouldn't be a hardware issue...

Any clue left?
