    Better than expected golf watch

    I read about golf watches for a few weeks before I finally decided on the S20. It doesn’t have a touch screen or color display, but you don’t need it. The display is really easy to read in full sunlight. The interface is easy to learn and works great. Once you locate the course and start playing is when it gets fun. After every shot it ask what club you used. Once you finished the hole it ask how many strokes total, how many putts and if you hit the fairway, missed right or left. It automatically goes to the next hole when you get to the tee box. It shows the distance to the pin. You can adjust the pin location on the fly as well. Download the Garmin connect app for your phone and you can see your scorecard with all your shots shown on a map of the hole. You can edit your shots, club selection etc. The watch also tracks steps, sleep and calories. An awesome watch without all the useless frills.

    Super GPS

    I have had this for over a month now and I love it. The gps is right on and comes up very fast . The battery life is the best of any gps that I have owned. It also charges up super fast. I played 18 holes the other day and after the round I still had 76 percent battery left. Once you use it a couple of times the four buttons are a snap to use to navigate around the course. My old gps was an S-4 that did not give me the measurements to the hazards and I did not like that. Now with the new S-20 I don't have to worry about them anymore. The watch is also a very stylish looking watch if you want to use it for that. If you are thinking of a new golf gps I would consider the S-20.

    I couldn't be happier with my new S20 golf watch. I have owned an original Sky Caddie and a few years ago I got Bushnell rangefinder. This new technology GPS watch is terrific. The S20 distance readings and green sketch are just what I needed. The yardages update and settle down to a reading almost instantly. Wearing the device on my wrist is much more convenient than a laser for blind shots. It had the perfect set of features for me. I don't know color screen or score keeping or swing tempo and other stuff. Just yardages. I do like the pedometer feature as I always try to get at least 10,000 steps per day.

    This watch is simple, but provides everything that you may need as a golfer. It can keep your score, provide distances to front, middle and back of greens, hazards with distances, layup distances and shot measurements. It also looks really good and is super lightweight. The batter lasts a long time, which is also a big plus.

    watch works very well. Only problem is with garmin golf app. My homecourse is not working properly to record shots on many of the holes. played on another course and it worked fine and recorded correctly. I think problem is because they switched front and back last year...it is working correctly on watch but not on app.

    this garmin is awful slow--start the set up process when you get to the golf course and it will be ready when you tee off---did not like the fact that i have to download instructions---a lot of money for what? i loved my old hand held garmin--wish i could resurect it

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I have been looking for a golf watch that is compatible with the course I play, is easy to operate, tells the distance to the hole, hazards, easily read plus it has several other functions which good if you want to use them. So far I have been very satisfied with the watch function.

    This watch is pretty packed with features for the price. The availability to see hazards and move the flag is awesome. I have not used the Truswing component yet, but plan too soon. Other features such as round time and step count are nice, but the GPS function is what I purchased this for.

    I’m a mid-90’s golfer. I don’t always hit the ball on the fairway, so it’s nice to get yardage distance just by looking at the watch, instead of wasting time looking for a sprinkler head with a yard distance on it.

    Knowing the distances to the front, back and middle of the green made club selection easy. There are so many other features that the garman watch has to offer and I can't wait to use them as I get used to the watch.

    I have enjoyed using this watch to track and improve my golf game. My only complaint is that there were not enough directions included with the watch. I had to Google directions to use it fully.

    I just started playing golf and really needed this for distance estimates. It is very comfortable to wear and works very simply. I am hoping for more accurate shots with knowing the distance.

    This watch is lightweight and easy to configure. The battery life is much longer than earlier versions of the approach and the yardages are more accurate. I'm very happy with this purchase so far.

    My previous version of the the Garmin watch would only allow me to play 18 holes. This watch will allow 36 holes with plenty of battery left.

    Easy to set up and adjust. Push and play for golf. Give it a few seconds to find your course, and off you go!! Texts and calls outside knowing distances, hazards, etc. on the course.

    I really feel this is very accurate on yardage. I just wish it would smoothly scroll to the next hole. Sometimes you have to adjust. But overall very good watch.

    I bought this watch because I left my other watch at home. This watch has some good features and reasonably easy to navigate through the buttons with a little patience.
