Enabling Location Services on Your Android

 View for iOS

If you are tracking outdoor activity with Fitdigits on your Android, make sure you have location services turned on.

Beware of Power Saving Mode:

Especially for Samsung users, but also other devices as well. Please check that Samsung Power Savings Mode or other Power saving modes are turned off when exercising and tracking activities if you intend to track while the app is backgrounded. Typically if they are on, they will disable any GPS tracking after a short period if the app is backgrounded.

1. Go to your Android Settings

Tap Location & Security
