Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meh! This will be my 3rd day of owning this watch and I'm still trying to learn how to effectively use it. My main purpose for this item (S60) is for my golf game. I am over 70 and not too keen on technology so I am still stumbling my way around, but the function I dislike most is the display's clarity or lack of. I placed my wife's Galaxy watch next to mine and her face dial had robust colors and brightness. On the you tube videos, it appeared that the S60 would be what I was looking for in a golf watch, but for now, the jury is still out..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Having Issues I have tried it twice on a gold course, first, it wouldn't display the map of the hole, did give me distances to the hole and shot distances. Second time, it locked up during the loading of the course and I was unable to use it. When I got home, I turned it off and back on and the golf program finally reappeared, so hopefully, the third time will be the charm, if not, I think I will give it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised Bought two weeks ago. I have this and a Bushnell Laser. As long as you know front, middle, back pin position, this smart watch works great. Very convenient for locating obstacles which are in limited or out of view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Watch/GPS I received this as a gift a week ago. So far I think its great. I used it on the golf course and it was great. Showed all hazards and yardage was accurate. Definitely would recommend this watch/gps. Can't wait to see what this watch can do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ease of use compared with with prior generation I noticed when I get to my course and I push the course find button I have to repeat this process over and over again to get the correct application ( golf) to appear. Not sure why this is occurs? Also in my other Garmin I could move to overhead view and touch screen to exact spot in front of water hazard for distance. In this new S60 I am unable to calculate the distance to the hazard accurately due to finger tip touching smaller over head view doesn't allow accurate location. I like the score keeping, tracking fairways hit, number of puts, GIR.

must you have your smartphone with you when you are using your S60 playing golf and can you download the golf courses directly to your phone from any where or must you be close to your chosen course

Asked by: Jimmy
You are not required to pair this watch with a smartphone. Course updates are downloaded from a computer so you do not need to be near the golf course.
