Just what I wanted.


Just what I wanted. The watch gives me the yardage I need and doesn't add a lot of frills. My buddy got the upgraded version which syncs with his phone to let him get text messages and lets him know if someone called him. I didn't want all that so this...

Love the GPS watch.


I've only been using a few times now but really seem to like it. Even finds information on small Missouri courses that I only occasionally play at.

Love it!


All my friends have those radio type gadgets and have to read off yardages to each other. My watch hangs on my bag at the back of the cart so we both can see it and not interrupt one's concentration. Lightweight if it's cartpath only. So very easy to...

Gives accurate distances


The course we play in league every week has GPS on the carts and the Garmin unit distances are always within a yard of them. Can't wait to use it on a course with no GPS.
