once again the GH-505 failed
Yesterday I participated in a kind of a "pentathlon". No, no - not the classic one, it has just 5 different
disciplines: Fast running, Long running, Long jump, Shotput and Swimming. In Germany this is known
as "German Sport Badge" (Sportabzeichen).
On the way in my car to the sport arena, I switched my two watches on. GH-625 found the satellites
in about 1 Minute. GH-505 did not. Even after 3 Minutes with no sucess. After GPS reset it took again
about 2 Min. (Sum: 5 Min.) to get a GPS fix.
After going around for about 10-15 Min. on the sports field, I wanted to begin some warming up and wanted
to start some 400m rounds running. Because I was sure, that GPS fix was there for more than 10 Min.,
I just started the two watches and started my first round. I looked at the watches after first (auto) lap:
GH-625 showed the lap page (as expected). GH-505 showed: "No GPS. Start anyway ?"
I answered "No", stopped and resetted both timers and started again.
Next lap - same result !
After that I switched the GH-505 to watch mode and used only my GH-625 for the upcoming competitions
and I was really happy to have it with me !
