on 23 August 2017
This is my first golf watch, which I purchased having read a review in a golfing magazine, and as someone who is onto his third TomTom Satnav device. The Satnav has such a clean display and simplicity of use which always seems far easier to use than ones which I encounter in hire cars, so I felt confident that the display and function of the watch was likely to match the Satnav and that has been my experience.
Setup involves loading thousands of golf course via computer, downloading app to smartphone for later pairing and syncing and then you are on your way.
Difficult, to explain in detail, but the watch finds the course, identifies distances, registers shots and in real-time you can see how far you hit the ball...watch vibrates, and then when you walk towards the ball the distance registers, at same time as GPS recognises you are getting closer to green. So real-time scoring is straightforward(you count puts separately).
At end of round you pair and sync with smartphone which gives graphics of each hole and distances of each shot.
I am not necessarily convinced it makes me play golf better, but I find it definitely helps with club selection e.g wedge vs 9-iron and gives my partners a break from being constantly asked by me, how far to the front. middle or back of the green!
Base on 2 months experience of this device, I would highly recommend it.
