Samsung Gear s3 not uplaoding activity

I have a Samsung gear s3.  I can log/record cycling activities in the morning ranging from 38 mins to 42 mins.  When I cycle the same route and use the watch in the same way I get a failure at the end of the ride.  The failure reads:

strava needs a longer activity to upload.  Do you want to discard it?

I'm only given a yes or no.  No just returns me to the timing screen and yes drops out and all data lost.

I'm thinking about using an alternative tracker because this is proving annoying and useless.

  • I contacted Strava by twitter and explained the problem.  It was explained the watch needed longer to get a good/strong GPS signal which reminded me I normally have my watch on battery saving mode and only switched to full mode just before tracking my ride.  I now switch to full mode a good 5 minutes before my ride and all activities have been tracked.

    If you use battery saving mode, change to full mode a good time before tracking your ride.

  • Since I got a new Samsung phone and had to sync my gearfit 2 with it I also receive this message after my shorter runs. This is very annoying as I am trying to track how far I run each month! And no, I don't have my watch on power saving mode! Please help!

  • I had this happen with a ride that was around 80 minutes long. Based on the comments above, I tried unpausing my workout outside (I was inside when it was showing me the message about workout being too short) and waiting for it to get GPS signal. It seems like maybe theres a bug where you can't end outdoor workouts without GPS signal. It worked and I could end workout! Maybe try this as a workaround?

  • I am facing exactly the same problem. My GPS is always on, it is not on power saving mode and it tracks indoor workout but all other activities which involves GPS it doesn't record. I close all watch apps, restart the watch, it then sometimes work and sometimes I've to restart it couple of times to enable it to track my activities. It is annoying and the reason I am not using samsung's own apps is because it discards everything older than 30 days.

  • Hi all,

    Does some one know if strava support personnel are reviewing the community posts?
    Any way to tag them to the issue we are discussing here?

    I have the exact same problem.. My first run today with the watch and strava.. 

    Thanks!

  • I recently found the solution for myself from one of the posts here. Turn the Bluetooth off, once the watch is disconnected from the phone, open strava and scroll on any outdoor activity and instantly the GPS would connect (or few seconds, depending on the weather). Upon finishing the activity, connect bluetooth, connect the watch manually and sync strava activity from the watch manually. This seem to be working for me, so thought share. good luck.

  • This is clearly an ongoing problem that Strava are silent on and doing nothing about. I’ve searched these forums and Strava’s website. There’s no mention of this error message, even though it appears on the watch. I’ve a Galaxy Active 2 and it is now happened far too often to be acceptable for a paid app. I’ve tried all the solutions people have mentioned and the only one that works is to uninstall the app on the phone and the watch and reinstall them.

    This is very frustrating as I never know until after an activity whether it’s going to happen or not. So my faith in the app is really dropping. Considering that it’s now happened to around 50% of my activities, it makes a mockery of being able to track progress over time. Not good enough Strava! And your customer service of not responding to these problems is terrible.

  • Happened to me today for the first time. Multiple previous workouts riding the same route were fine. My settings are on full and exactly the same as the other rides. Hopefully, a fix will be found soon. I have a Galaxy Watch Active 2
