I'd recommend downloading the map. It seems to work better.

I tried after downloading the maps on the gearS, but without the phone it is not able to pin point the location, also could not find out how to get the directions

There are a few known issues with Here Map on Watch S (which doesn't require Here beta on phone at all). First, it doesn't support car navigation, only walking navigation. Second, in order to start a turn by turn navigation, it needs to be connected to your phone via BT.

For getting a location without the phone, you need:
1. Have a mobile data connection to speed up the initial lock. It doesn't seem to use wifi to speed up the satellite lock at all like most Android phone would.
2. Need to be outside to have the direct view of sky to get better satellite signal.
