Very good, helpful and insightful article. I'm considering an Apple Watch but the fact you can't disable all other apps when using it on a golfing app, is a real negative.
Anyone any suggestions?
Just read your review of Apple Watch as golf gps wearable. I’ve been using Golf Shot GPS on my phone but also have an Apple Watch Version 1 and wanted to use it as well. My problem is I can’t read it in the sun or with sunglasses on—screen is dark and text isn’t bright enough. Any suggestions or Fixes in later watches? Thanks!
Amazing postings. Many thanks! <a href="https://paydayloansbbv.com//">loans for bad credit guaranteed</a>
This was an excellent read. I appreciate how you incorporated digital minimalism into the discussion. Especially in a sport like golf, technology may need to take a backseat for those of us looking to relax and reflect during our round.
GolfPad is a great app. I would like to see how you would compare to the ones in your review.
I have been using Golf Pad for some years with their Link for registering clubs and each GPS point of stroke. Works very well for knowing the distance of each club amongst all the other usual benefits and statistics. The major benefit leading to a 20% improvement in handicap was to find I am usually better taking one club more than I thought I needed. Previously thinking/hoping I hit further than my real average distances. Two rounds into using an Apple watch series 5 with Golf Pad. Works I find it works well but I still want confirmation on GPS accuracy. So far it seems to be 5m out on 100m shots which is verging on one club difference. I am doubling up with a laser to continue testing.
Thanks for the review. I was thinking of replacing my Garmin S20 Approach because the crystal broke (dropped a 4x4x8 on it while building a deck) but I want a GPS that is dedicated to golf while playing golf. I'll be getting another Garmin.
I've used SwingU for a number of years, and I find it invaluable. My game has improved so much, just by knowing distances to greens, water, bunkers, etc. I would never voluntarily go back to trying to guess the distance, especially on a course I don't know. Having said that, I don't use my Apple Watch, but rather my phone. I gave it a go with the watch, and there was too much happening on that tiny screen for me to use it effectively. Add in the occasional beep in the middle of a backswing, and I knew it was not for me. I have no issue handling my phone as I walk the course, and it goes in and out of the bag without much thought. The user interface for the phone is well done, and the course maps are great. I like my Apple Watch very much, but not for golf.
This is a very good article and I am very thankful to you for giving very important knowledge.<a href=https://gpscustomerassistance.com/> Garmin map updates </a>
I can’t tolerate anything on my wrist while swinging a golf club. On occasion, I have forgotten to take it off when using the driving range or starting a round and immediately become aware of its presence. When I swing with it on, it digs into my arm. Very distracting, to say the least. I use a SkyCaddie, hanging on my belt, dedicated to the course, with so much more information available to me, than an app-based watch could ever provide. No distraction, quick info, and on to the swing...
