Am I reading this right that you stayed put till you had gathered up satellites again? True dedication to the training log :)
My 610 goes to 'power save' mode after maybe 5 mins which leads to similar dilemmas.

I didn't move until I got satellites, more sad than dedicated!

I didn't add the 335m I was running in between watches which equates to 1.29 based on my min/km.

Watch won't let you start it if you have GPS switched on until it has located satellites. Alternative is to switch off GPS, start watch, and then turn GPS on which will locate satellites when it's ready, but no guarantee when that might be.

Ohhhh. Mine will at least work as a watch while the rest of its brain is searching the skies for satellites.

I think the true measure of dedication though was wearing the 2nd watch as a backup.
I did cover the back-up watch with the sleeve of the jacket just in case anyone noticed!
