Expo Location, watchPositionAsync and LocationOptions Accuracy

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 43
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): all

Im using watchPositionAsync and the the documentation with the LocationOptions does not make sense to me.

Documentation simply states: “Location manager accuracy. Pass one of LocationAccuracy enum values. For low-accuracies the implementation can avoid geolocation providers that consume a significant amount of power (such as GPS).”

So I have been given options of different accuracy types. I would like to know how the accuracy affects the callback value and time it takes for the updates. If I set the accuracy high am I ever given a locationObject with less accurate values than the set accuracy?

Accuracy is an optional field. What happens if I leave it empty?

I want fast location updates after initialising the watchPositionAsync and the more accurate the locationObject the better.
