    Tracked a run using the gear fit 2. Ran a known route and by the time I got to 1 mile it was showing 0.6 miles. Started the run over and it did the same thing.

    I have my phone with me anyways. Is there a way to have the watch use the GPS on the phone? Or is there a way to run everything on the phone and just have the fit2 be a "dumb" display?

    Really all I want on my wrist is a timer and heartbeat. I'm happy to let the phone record the distance and route.

    So my solution is start the run on my watch then swipe left. I get time + heart beat.

    I also run strava on my phone for accurate distance and pace, which I was using for my runs anyways.

    I don't sync shealth to strava to prevent duplicate entries.

    Went for my 4th run with it, it was suddenly dead on accurate. Very strange.

    has it stayed pretty accurate since. maybe it just took a few times to get its bearings

    I did a 2 mile walk and it accurately recorded distance and showed me a map of it as well.

    Nope, the one accurate run was a fluke. It's consistently off by half.

    might be you have a bad one, with a faulty GPS or some such
