    Hey forum!
    I have the Apple Watch version 2. Today I went out for a cycling activity. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to utilize the GPS of the watch, which means the Workout app didn't display any pace or mile data. I was in a small town and had a clear view to the sky, tough. Am I doing something wrong or does the Workout app not use the GPS sensor so far?
    Thanks!

    Regards
    Markus

    It should just work. But I've not yet tried cycling.

    The Workout app should be using the GPS data just fine. I live in a small rural town and did a 5 mile bike ride last weekend and it showed all the GPS data in the Activity app after I completed my ride.

    I think Location Services must be on on your iPhone? Is this the case?
