No GPS on the upcoming Watch?
I've just read the upcoming Apple watch including the new 'sports' version will not have gps tracking.
I do not understand that decision at all. I was looking forward to getting one but without that it's more like an expensive toy.
I was hoping it was actually going to be useful!
PS I am an Apple fan!

Re: No GPS on the upcoming Watch?
I have a Garmin smart watch as well as my Watch and when I turn the GPS on my Garmin the battery gets KILLED. Unless Apple uses their special magic sauce to make the GPS and battery last then it is not gonna happen
As it is if you track a LONG workout using the HR sensors the battery takes a serious hit. Imagine how bad that would be if you also had a GPS radio sucking power
