Fitness tracker

Doesn't matter which one I use, but something happens on my phone and they stop tracking. I tried running two at once but both cut out at same time. It's not network because my friend will go with me and hers records the whole thing. It's not straight away when my phone locks itself, but it must stop the gps when apps are running in the background at some point. I don't know what the issue is but how can I get the apps to run and record even if the screens locked? It's ruining the instant gratification I'm getting from exercise ๐Ÿ˜‚

Bluetooth connection? I need to sync my iPhone and vivofit manually as if I have it connected all day via blue tooth, it rubs my battery down

 Rubs/runs haha

Do you use a power saving app? Many of them stop signal transmission when the screen locks. Fitbit is great because the tracker saves your info til you sync it to your phone

Check your location services is on for the app or in general
