The info first appeared in Amazfit’s dedicated Facebook group. The software update tackles a few issues that appeared after the 2.3 .9.0 and 22.214.171.124 updates.
One of these is to do with the GPS sensor. It will now be quicker to tap into the satellite signal as multiple users have voiced complaints on slow connection speeds. The sensor should also churn out more precise distance tracking data.
The other fix is to do with the heart rate sensor. The update optimises its algorithm to improve accuracy at high intensity activities.
It is not yet clear the update fixes issues with short battery life or if it will bring other features.
Firmware 126.96.36.199 for Amazfit Stratos is only available only to beta testers for now. If you are interested in getting early updates, information on how to participate can be found on this link.
