Turn off your GPS and then back on again. This allows it to look for the location and reestablish a connection.
Solution 2: Toggle Airplane Mode
Turn Airplane mode on for a little bit (5-10 seconds) and switch it back to off. This resets all networks which can help your location accuracy.

Do not force close or swipe away your app. This completely stops the app and can affect the GPS.

This can affect GPS and networking performance. This can be set by going to Settings > ClockShark > Background app refresh.
