This watch is simple, accurate, easy to use and very comfortable.
Golfer
Even cooler, and more used than I anticipated, is the function that lets me measure the distance of my shot.

The major defect and it's major is that the batteries won't last for 36 holes.

Three holes into my first round with the new watch (a Christmas present to myself), it dawned on me that this is cooler than I had imagined. I predict two years from now, this is the new rangefinder technology.

For the past several years, I have been a big proponent of the laser rangefinder, arguing with my gps rangefinder friends that the laser is more accurate to the pin. After my round today, I am not sure I will ever pull my laser out again. The convenience is unbelievable. I just look down at my wrist, and I have my distance to the front middle and back. I look in the cart at the pin sheet, and subtract or add for a perfect distance. No reaching in the glove box of the cart or fumbling around for a device.

Even cooler, and more used than I anticipated, is the function that lets me measure the distance of my shot. You just hold a button and select "measure my shot" then drive or walk to the ball, and it gives the distance. I started doing it with all my shots just to get a feel for how long I was hitting the ball with each club. Pretty cool.

Less cool, but neat -- you can also measure with an odometer how far you actually walk on the course. And other things, like how far away your mother in law's house is on Christmas day, important things like that.

The watch is very comfortable and readable with large, clean numbers. I am going to start wearing it as my regular watch.

The only con that I can tell is that there are no distances to hazards, etc. I suspect that will be in the next generation.

Only one round in, but I can tell this is going to be a keeper.

Update:

After about 4 months of pretty heavy usage, there are my thoughts.

I love this product. I've had the Skycaddie and the Garmin larger units and
I didn't realize how much of a pleasure it would be not to have to go around
to the side of the cart to look at the yardage. Also, the readout on the watch
is a lot easier to see than the screens of the larger units. The guy
complaining about the differences in yardage must be a very accurate golfer.
For me, a few yards difference is not going to matter. Although I question
whether sprinkler heads are that accurate. I have checked the SR watch
against the hand held and usually they are the same or within a yard or two.

The downside is you don't get the detail eg, distances to hazards or
specific spots on the course that you can get with the
handheld Garmin. Another negative is that the other guys in
my foursome are always criticizing me for checking my watch
for the time.

I love the watch and find it works wonderfully. The interface is poor - too much button pushing - but it works and there are few reasons to push any buttons on the course. You can measure your drive or move from the hazard backward to your ball - that takes button pushing.

It finds all the golf courses without all that computer loading.

The major defect and it's major is that the batteries won't last for 36 holes. It's a one round device and you better remember to recharge it or you won't have a device for the next round.

This is the real deal and it will soon be the most popular range finder on the market. The courses are already pre-loaded so no need to download courses off the computer and pay extra fees. With a click of the button it identified the course I was playing while standing on the first tee. Simply glance at the watch to automatically get the front, middle and back yardage (you don't need the exact distance to the pin because you aren't good enough) and no need to stand there holding up a range finder trying to line up and click. Also with the touch of a button it will measure the exact distance of the shot you just hit. The watch is very light so you don't even feel it and the font is big so you don't need to take out your reading glasses.

I got this watch for christmas (a month ago), and have played a half-dozen rounds with it. I walk and carry my bag, often in the rain this time of year. I like going directly from lie to lie with no pushcart, no distractions, and I certainly do not want to fuss with gadgets. All you have to do is push one button that says "start round". It knows where you are, so it knows what course you're playing, and what hole you're on. You just glance at your wrist to see how far you are from the pin (front/middle/back), without ever having to push another button. The readings have matched the course markers every single time I've checked them. No subscriptions, no fees, and it's waterproof, so no worries.

You can directly measure the length of a drive/shot if you like, by pushing about two buttons, but I have yet to do that. I just subtract. You can also measure how far you've walked during the round, but I haven't used that feature either.

On a couple of occasions, where the next tee box is very near the previous green, the watch fails to understand that you have moved on to the next hole, and will continue to give distances to the previous hole. You have to press one button to let it know. I'm not sure a software fix could be made for this, really. I'd rather have to tell the watch I've moved on, rather than have to tell it I haven't moved on yet because I just skulled my pitch or sand shot 30 yards past the green. I think the programmers chose the correct trade-off.

I used to wear a Suunto golf watch that kept score. This Garmin displays tiny dots to represent what par is, but you can't input anything, not even a simple stroke count. I thought I would miss the scorekeeping feature, but now I'm not sure.
