I received a Mi Band 7 yesterday. After updating the band firmware and Zepp Life app, I found that I can't start an activity and have GPS lock on. The band calls locking on GPS as "positioning". The band just stays in the positioning mode when trying to connect to GPS.

I have tried / checked the following things:
- reset band
- reboot phone
- checked all permissions on phone are set correctly.
- updated app / band from play store / app.
- Cleared cache and data for app.
- Unpaired and paired band and restarted in between.
- Deleted app from phone and reinstalled.
- Factory reset the band and repaired


App has GPS access when starting a fitness routine from in the app itself so it is not the phone's GPS. This same phone and app were working fine yesterday with a Mi Band 4.
ROM version of band: 1.16.07
App: 6.1.2
Phone Xiaomi 9T Pro ROM: MIUI 12.5.2 stable and it is current.

Any ideas on what I can do guys? Is there any log I can be checking?



UPDATE:
I Migrated data to Mi Fitness (Xiaomi Wear) app and I can lock GPS even indoors. Issue certainly seems to be with the Zepp Life (Mi Fit) app

Hello. I tried it on Mi Band 6 on iOS and Android version to prove that the problem is Zepp Life app. The positioning system that worked on both platforms 1 day ago is currently not working. There have been a lot of issues since early versions of Zepp Life, and it doesn't occur to me that they were deliberately brought up and fixed (to point out the Mi Fitness app). When the update that solves the problem comes, I will share it on my page and here. goodbye 👋

I noticed problems with zepp life 6.x
It doesn't synchronize my automatic heart rate mi band 6 NFC. On 5.6.0 it works properly. Maybe you found another 6.x version issue

Yes, it is fixed for me and I have changed back to Zepp Life app. Is there a way to transfer the data from Mi Fitness app to Zepp Life?
