Note there is an issue with the Sony Smartwatch 3 (sw3) where sweat can make the watch lose GPS signal. People have used sweatbands or other things under the watch to keep it away from sweat, resulting in much improved performance.

Perfect alternative to the Strava wear app if you value customisability and the ability to merge rides as well as not have them automatically upload when you stop recording, etc. It has so many features, it is incredible.

If I finish a run and forget to actually swipe away the statistics page, battery will drain to nothing over the next few hours. Presumably GPS is still turned on by the app at this time, or some other process is running away like crazy. Can you please stop whichever it is? There's no obvious indication that the stats page is still active - there is no ongoing notification, for instance. Otherwise very handy for sharing stats.
