Increasingly health manufacturers have added multi-system or multi-band GPS monitoring to their watches. That features Apple, which bundled dual-frequency GPS into the Apple Watch Extremely and Extremely 2.

I would hoped the Sequence 9 would begin a brand new pattern; as a substitute, we have now to accept one other GPS-only watch.

Most GPS-only smartwatches are objectively unreliable for location monitoring; the longer you run, the additional your precise and tracked mileage will diverge, as sign blockage or latency warps your outcomes. In the meantime, health manufacturers like Amazfit, COROS, and Garmin have begun including extra correct GPS chipsets in watches properly beneath the Apple Watch Series 9‘s $400 worth level.
