Save Motion Data?

Is there any way to save the Motion Data from a Nokia Lumia 640?

I'd like to be able to record my location without using a specific GPS app as they kill batteries and aren't very reliable.

Motion Data goes into the Health App... But they stripped out the session tracking for walk/run to encourage Band sales I guess.

Health App will sync into Health Vault.

For daily step counting, GPS isn't necessary. Even for sessions GPS isn't needed unless you are calibrating stride length...

Do you have any specific use scenarios to draw out better advice?
