GPS tracking is spotty. It works 30-40% of the time. For example, I just came back from a 4.3-mile run in 40 minutes, and though the time is correct, the miles shown are 0.26 mi. The Fitbit watch is a better option. And though it's also faulty, it doesn't require you to carry your phone to track you GPS data. Update: I tried removing the battery restrictions for the app as suggested, but it still does not track well.

Needs a manual sync button or menu item. This app works fine 90% of the time, but it's really demotivating when it occasionally doesn't sync with Google fit. I even got polar flow as well and sync beat with flow but beat still just refuses to sync some workouts at all, with either fit or flow. I would really like a manual sync button so I can retry. Please.

Has issues connecting to sensor frequently. Would be nice if could have a favorite activity list instead of having to scroll through entire list each time. Syncing has issues, on the beat app I'm missing the entire month of September that shows on the flow app. Flow app won't connect to senor at all. Glad I can mute the voice on this app and enjoy the graphs and feedback about my workout. I like the ability to add notes. It used to sync with my calendar but now it doesn't. GPS drains battery.
