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 tried an app on my phone before and I HATED carrying the phone in my pocket or having it out on the course in the first place. I golf to get away, not to carry my phone and look at a screen. All I want is to know how far away the pin is, and with this simple watch I can do that easily.
The distances are close to accurate, which is obviously critical, and I played a few courses and they were all available. It tells you front, middle, and back distances and it also can chart your distance from shot to shot. I always wondered how far I drive the ball on certain holes...now I confirmed that its not that far at all.
Not that you're looking for this advice, but I was very concerned with just the feel of having something on my wrist while I golf. I have never worn a watch or anything and thought it might feel weird. I actually don't mind the feel of it while golfing...I often don't even realize I have it on.
The one thing I don't like that much about the phone is the quality of the watch band/clasp. There is a simple piece of metal that clips into an endless run of slits in the band...and the band is stiff rubber. It feels fine on my wrist, but I'm concerned that after a lot of use that little clip might just snap off.
Lastly, it is a rechargeable watch and has a weird system for recharging. It has 4 little nodes on the underside and you clamp on a charger to the outside of the unit that matches up with the nodes. I made it through each round with no problem in regards to battery life, I just find clamping the charger to the watch itself a bit strange...and since that charger is not universal...if you manage to loose it...I think you're screwed. Also, if my dad bought this watch he would struggle getting the little charger dots to match up with the holes on the bottom of the watch. He's 64.
Overall, I love the watch. It works as its described, and knowing what I know about it now, I would buy it again.
