Broke after one round

Mike, Amazon
28 November 2014
  • Summary: This watch worked great for one round of golf and then the power button broke. After I had to pay for shipping to get it fixed, i received another watch that was clearly worn out and not even cleaned. I know it's refurbished, but they can't even clean the damn thing or put on a new band?

Spend a little more for something better

  • Excerpt: Don't waste your time or money with this watch. The battery life is not good at all and the yardages seem to be off slightly. Might as well just spend a little more for an actual range finder instead of this. I used it two rounds and now Golfsmith won't accept a return for this terrible product.

  • Excerpt: I bought this GPS as an addition to my range finder and for a quick glance to determine distance. It is perfect except for the charging system. Not only does it need to be charged every single time I play but its slips off its idiotic button charger and then it isn't ready when I need it.

This would be awesome...if it worked

Tee Box "The T-Box", Amazon

  • Summary: Went on Garmin's website before purchasing this item to make sure the golf courses I play would be on the device. According to their maps, they are! According to the actual device, however, they are not.

Tired of trying to charge it

Bill Horne, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: I got the watch last Christmas. I have played courses in several states and has always worked well except trying to charge it. It is aggravating as hell and I finally got rid of it. About 50 0/0 of the time when I turned it off to charge it would come back on.
