TomTom Golfer 2 GPS Watch.
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The LARGE size is way too big for a woman's wrist...My wrist is about 5.8" and even though I slid the watchband sizing mechanism at least 1.5" past the last rung (as far as you could slide it), it was still too loose.
I went to the US TomTom site and LARGE is the only size offered IN THE US.
Here's the fix......
Go to Amazon UK and order it there where you can get SMALL and you also have the option of selecting it in grey. Apparently, TomTom is UK-based and for some absurd reason, they aren't selling the SMALL size in the US.
BUT...Vibrates after every shot and no way to silence it (part of the shot tracking feature). Nice if you don't mind having a cow bell on the course.
Sync software is flaky. does not maintain sync even after paining.
Could have done better for the price. I am sending it back.
Top reviews from other countries
On certain parallel holes on my golf course the auto advance does not advance and I have found myself reading false yardage’s before I notice. This watch does not perform as advertised, so it has become an expensive yardage measurement watch.
The reviews on this product are fairly harsh in regard to 1 particular aspect which is the auto shot detection. This aspect essentially is what COULD separate the watch from the rest. The reviews did make it seem like that feature was basically useless in that it didn’t work accurately enough to be useable. I found many reviews were old/outdated and my hope was that tomtom had fixed the problems with the last few software updates. Despite that, I still bought the watch because I thought it excelled in many other aspects.
I can say however that the auto shot detection works far better than I had expected. I played my first round with it and literally the only times it incorrectly added extra shots to my score was when I picked my golf bag up between shots (I carried my bag). That occurrence contributed to 95% of the added shots (occasionally it added a shot if I crossed my arms and therefore covered the screen, since the covering of the screen is a feature which allows you to manually add a stroke to your score). The fact it correctly recorded nearly every single shot, and only incorrectly added strokes from one particular movement (picking up my bag) was good enough to me that I will continue to use the auto detect feature. I kept the sound off, but allowed it to vibrate. The vibration is not intrusive, but just enough to feel the watch as a reminder to check your score. If Tomtom would just increase their 3 meter shot detect radius which is supposed to prevent your practice swings from counting as multiple strokes it would almost be perfect. If I didn’t Carry my bag (used a pull cart or drove a cart) i would suggest it would’ve added maybe an incorrect stroke only a few times during the entire round. Once an incorrect stroke was added it was very noticeable (from the vibration) to remove the stroke, 1 press of the button and it was removed. I thought that may become annoying but it was pretty simple to do, and you still have the ability to “review” your score for that hole at the end of each hole and if you’re going to keep your score on the watch anyway you can correct any errors then. The watch automatically advanced to the next hole every hole. No issues there.
Distances were very accurate and I loved the ease of use, combined with the detail of the holes. This is one thing that separated it from the Garmin for me (a friend has the Garmin S20 so I’ve seen it in action), the ability to quickly and easily zoom in on each hole to see very detailed distances to the hazards was fantastic. Once playing you just press the button once to see the hazard distances then hold your hand over the watch to zoom in on those hazards. simple. Press the same button again to see the layup distances after your done viewing the hazards.
The look of the watch is also great, I never take my “non golf watches” with me on golf trips, so i thought if I could buy one that looks the part I could also use it occasiaonlly as a regular watch. Occasionally is the word. My intention was to only have the watch be a “everyday watch” essentially before or after the round and on those weekend getaways when you don’t want to bring your fancier watches.
The Garmin S20 was a consideration but the reviews made it seem like accessing the hole by hole details (hazard distances for example) was a pain. You had to press a tiny button multiple times and scroll through a menu screen to get the info you want, and then I didn’t feel like the info was nearly as well laid out or presented. For example you must press the button to view each hazard individually on each hole with the Garmin S20. With the tomtom, you see the entire hole and all the hazards at once including distances, total sizes of the hazards and locations of the hazards on the hole. That design of use alone is probably enough to warrant buying it over the competition I think. The auto shot detection is just a bonus “gimmick” which in the end I thought worked extremely well and with 1 software update could be nearly perfect.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for 2 reasons.
The battery life is lacking. I got the watch on a Thursday afternoon. It was 75% charged when I took it out of the box, I fully charged it (charges VERY quickly). I used the watch as a “regular watch” Thursday and Friday (i’d Suggest after 2 days use the watch was at 90% power), then played golf on Saturday, therefore 2 regular days of use and 1 day used as a GPS golf watch and it was at 50% power after the round. Therefore I do believe the specs when it says the battery lasts 10+ days as a regular watch, I would think you “probably” could get 2 full rounds out of it, so 8-10 hours of use as a GPS watch after a full charge as opposed to the expected 12 hours. The Garmin S20 was 15 hours GPS and 8 weeks as a regular watch. So this one is inferior but, the rest of my life requires charging (phone, cameras etc) so I have no issues remembering to charge this. I may as well add it to the rest.
The other reason it’s not 5 stars is after my round, I connected the watch to my phone using the app and was excited to see the data from my round but only maybe 60% of the shots and hole data (number of putts, where my shots went, distances etc) actually transferred to the phone. The watch itself kept score perfectly in the end (after I correctly reduced any incorrectly added auto shots) but for some reason the data doesn’t fully transfer over to the phone and therefore was completely useless. I shot a 79 in real life, my round on the phone was a 61. Apparently after looking at the tomtom website forum, this is a common issue that tomtom needs to fix. Until then, if you’re expecting a post round analysis you won’t get one. For me, that wasn’t a deal breaker. It’s a nice feature if it ever works but it’s information I’ve never had in the past anyway. But it would be cool if it works “one day”.
Even with the lower than advertised battery life and the total lack of post round data, all the other aspects of the watch (amount of detail while on the course, ease of use, auto shot detection working 95% of the time, sleek look) MORE than makes up for any shortfalls. Easily can say this is well worth pruchasing and I hope with future software updates this watch will be almost perfect.
Update*** after 2.5 years of use I still absolutely love this watch. Many of my friends have the Garmin equivalent and when we play together its clear this watch supplies the necessary hole information far easier and quicker. It’s just more user friendly which makes all the difference when playing a round.
