    Nice multi function watch. Tracks steps, heart rate, golf yardage, yardage to hazards, score. Works well for distances to the green and hazards. There is an option where you can set the pin on the green. You need to familiarize yourself with all the options and how it works before heading to the course. After a round you can sync with the garmin app on your phone to view statics by hole and distances. This feature works fair but could use some improvements. Attached is an example of the distance tracking feature.

    Bought primarily for golf distance to hole, screen is tiny so while has map feature it is really small. But distance works well. Syncs to phone during round but app is not that useful to me. Also syncs to an online app which if you choose tracks each hole, each, club each shot. Works okay but still sometimes get the swing count wrong. Noticed when used in the ran, touch screen becomes difficult to use or falling rain activates entries as if you touched screen. The other feat

    For golf players who are also interested in a fitness band, this is the one. Honestly, it is quasi perfect. Every feature is useful and the form factor great. The only small negative is battery when you use it on the course. But not sure it could be differently. And you will love the charts showing where your shots went. I was highly skeptical but it really works well. Love it!

    I mainly use this for the golf app which is fantastic!!! It's easy to use and navigate. I love it that its not clunky like other golf GPS watches tend to be. The other fitness features are nice and accurate also.

    Traded in my Apple Watch for the garmin since I use it more for golf. I actually wear this now more often than the Apple Watch! Rarely need to charge when not golfing, so great as a general fitness watch too!
