Turn on GPS Power Saver mode

Turning on GPS Power Saver mode can significantly reduce the drain on your Band battery when using GPS during a bike ride.


It can increase the battery life of your Band by up to four hours while biking. To learn more about GPS Power Saver mode, see Using GPS mapping.

Here's how to turn on GPS Power Saver mode:

Step 1: For faster GPS lock, sync your Band with your phone before you start out.
Step 2: On your Band, press the power button.
Step 3: Swipe left and tap the Bike Tile
The Bike Tile
.
Step 4: Swipe left and up and tap GPS Power Saver.

    • Moving at a fast pace on a route that has a complex series of turns
    • Using GPS in an area with physical obstructions such as high rise buildings, dense tree cover, or heavy cloud cover
    • Moving in a circular route (Following a linear path that doesn't intersect with itself increases the accuracy of GPS on your Band.)

To make sure that you are getting the most out of your GPS power saver experience, make sure that you turn off Watch Mode.


Turn on Auto Pause

Turning on Auto Pause causes your Band to automatically pause GPS while you are stationary for more than 5 seconds. Your Band will notify you with a haptic vibration when it pauses GPS. When you continue on your ride, GPS will automatically start calculating your coordinates again and will notify you with a haptic vibration. Auto Pause will also work with services like GPS Power Saver and Music Controls.

To turn on Auto Pause:

Step 1: On your Band, press the power button.
Step 2: Swipe left and tap the Bike Tile
The Bike Tile

Step 3: Swipe left to Use GPS, swipe up and tap Auto Pause, and then toggle to on.
