Troubleshooting finding the GPS

To pick up the GPS satellite signals, go outdoors and away from tall buildings and trees. Wear the M600 with the watch face upwards on your wrist. Keep your arm in a horizontal position in front of you and away from your chest, and stand still until the M600 finds the satellite signals. The green circle around the GPS will stop rotating when the GPS signal is found, and you can start your session.

If the Polar app can't pick up the satellite signals, make sure you've allowed the tracking of your location:
