- Ease of Use
- Lack Of Hazard Distances
- Mediocre battery life
Previously, used laser rangefinder and was looking for something more convenient and less cumbersome.
My criteria for a replacement was:
Shot distance tracking
The watch is great to look at, easy to read, no more cumbersome than a regular size watch, and this is coming from someone who previously didn't wear a watch while golfing.
The distances were on par with my laser rangefinder and the real-time updating holes and views (like scoring) were very convenient.
The bluetooth alerts of calls and email were a nice bonus and helped add to the convenience.
My only improvements would be ability to receive distances to hazards, especially on tee shots, the only additional distances available today were lay-up distances which is just a simple math calculation.
The other, is that the battery life is ok but not great. The battery worked fine for a single round but I don't think I could get two rounds out of one battery charge.
