Amazfit Stratos firmware update solves GPS and heart rate problems

Participants of the Amazfit Stratos beta platform have received firmware 2.3.9.1 for testing. The new update fixes GPS accuracy and heart rate tracking issues.

Essential readingTop fitness trackers and health gadgets

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 2.3.8.0 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 2.3.9.1 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.

    Nice watch, but unusable as sport watch. Does not have lap time live running. It just shows a static previous lap time. No way to see where you are on the lap.

    Unfortunately it not solves GPS problems.. older version like 2.3.7.0 is a lot faster fixes GPS.

    Several days ago watch’s (Amazefit stratos 2) battery fully discharged and I could not get direct and related GPS data such as pace, distance, maps view etc. Hope failure is arising from software and updates.

    This firmware solves nothing. It is even worser with GPS tracking quality.
