Works well.. A little bulky and lower tech level than some
October 24, 2014
I really like the performance of this device. As a previous GolfBuddy owner this device has the same great features of 40K courses and free updates. Watch provides distances to green, hazards and traps... But not fairway zones. Also can keep your personal score.
The watch comes with a cradle device that connects to your computer or charger via USB. The computer connection works well but is very, very slow.... too slow. Also, the phone can only be charged with the buoy cradle... Unfortunate that they didn't just user micro-USB like all non-Apple phones. considering the bulk of the watch, there is no reason not to have done this.
Also... No touch screen here... Just so perplexed know. gar in does, I believe, so if comparing that is something to consider. The GolfBuddy is controlled by the 4 buttons.
Pros:Works very well, and provides hazard information... A nice upgrade from the GolfBuddy voice.
Comfortable despite bulk.
Good price point
Cons:Bulky so using as a primary watch is not an option
USB connection is non standard and exceptionally slow
Battery life will not last 2 games unless you play fast rounds. (8 hour charge with new device)
