Why does the HealthMate app need to know my location all the time?

    I have the same question. Android allows granting location access when app is in use, but HealthMate doesn't work with this setting. When all the time is granted, app uses location even after workout is finished. So I have to switch app location settings on/off before/after workout. This is very annoying.

    I am baffled by this abusive permission.

    I was enthusiastic about the ScanWatch but now I'll return it because of that. It is not acceptable that a "watch" completely excludes such a basic respect for privacy.
