Garmin Connect is pretty cool to see how far you hit each shot, the direction it went, etc.
UPDATE: Called Garmin Customer service and they ran me through some steps in order to get course updates via Garmin Express on the watch. You have to delete some files such as courses in parts of the world you won't need, in order to free up some space in order to download the updates. Also, asked about being able to edit the club selection list for shot tracking and they said its not possible right now, but maybe with a future update.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team if you have any further questions: www.garmin.com/support
[EDIT]: My original comment mentioned you could add a club via Connect Mobile, but as of right now, it must be done via the Connect site. Sorry for the misinformation.
The battery life is great. I can play two rounds of golf and wear the watch for over one week with plenty of battery left at the end of the week.
For the most part, I've found the yardages to be very accurate. The course I play most often enlarged some of the greens so the approach distances to a couple of the greens can be off by five or six yards. I'm not sure what Garmin's process is for updating the course library as changes are made to golf courses, but that might be a consideration if you play a course that has been changed or renovated.
I am impressed by the library of courses Garmin maintains. I haven't found a course yet that isn't in the Garmin library; there is even a little par 3 course I play that is in the library.
I do use the steps feature to make sure I stay active during the day. For the times I've walked and counted my steps and compared them to the watch, I found the watch to be relatively close to my count - most recently I counted 400 steps and the watch registered 393 steps.
A bigger problem is Quality Control (or lack thereof). I just got the watch, charged it, updated the software, tried to use it and found that the OK button doesn't work in certain circumstances. First, when you try to turn the watch off: You long press the UP button, get the "Power Off" dialog, scroll to "Yes" but when you press "OK" nothing happens (except the backlight ticks up a notch). Same thing when you are in the middle of a round and try to "Discard" the results: Highlight "Discard" and press "OK", nothing happens.
This thing is going back, pronto.
