Fitbit App GPS won't stay awake

I have a Motorola G7 Power with Android 9, and the latest version of the fitbit app.

When I select an activity from my Charge 3, such as running, it starts out recording GPS data, but the app won't keep the phone awake\the GPS won't stay awake.

After a couple of minutes (The time that I've set for my phone to lock itself automatically), the GPS just cuts out.

I suspected that this was a power saving feature, but whatever setting I use the GPS still stops when the screen goes to sleep.

Any suggestions?
