Apple Watch Series 3 accuracy
I am using Strava on my iPhone (6) with the original Apple Watch (no GPS). Apart from the inconvenience of having to take my iPhone in an armband it works very well for running and the activities are pretty accurate. Live HR, accurate routes and distances. (Only downside is lack of Beacon when I start tracking on the watch).
I’m coming up to my 40th birthday and my wife wants to get me a new Apple Watch Series 3.
There are (or were) reported problems on this forum with using the Strava standalone watch app with Apple Watch Series 2 – pretty serious problems like missing location data and truncated routes.
Presumably at least some of this was down to limitations of the Watch itself.
My questions are:
1. Was this resolved on Apple Watch Series 2?
2. Does anyone have experience with Strava on the new Apple Watch Series 3 - and does *that* track location accurately?
I’m keen on upgrading for swimming use but won’t do it if my Strava running experience is worse than with the original Watch + phone combination.
