Very basic functions, discontinued model

  • Summary: This is a review of the Garmin S1 GPS Golf Watch but for comparison purposes I will also describe how the S1 stacks up against the Bushnell Neo X gps watch. Both of these units have similar prices and time-telling functions, so I will focus my comments mainly on the golf functions.

Okay - unreliable after 4.5 mos

Ted P. Gillette, Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: Bought it in May. Had read the reviews that it is only good for a round and then needs to be re-charged. Played with it through the summer and it stopped re-charging as of mid October. It also does not read well near trees (not that my ball should be near a tree - but is sometimes).

Not impressed

Dexter, Amazon

  • Summary: The S1 is a nice fit and very handy when it works, however my unit had problems from the start. I had to hit the program button several times before it would "take", if it took at all. Very frustrating.

Not easy to deal with and short life span

Rdny, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: This was a decent device when it was working, but it was extremely finicky and stopped functioning completely after two years. Unless the buttons were pressed in exact order and in a timely manner, it tended to freeze up and was very difficult to turn off.

too difficult to keep charged

KK, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: I like what this does, when it works. The clamp and contact points don't connect well enough to count on the watch being charged between use. I might just toss this; it seem useless if it's not dependable.

Not as good as you would expect from Garmin

Barbara A. Kitchen, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: Bought GPS golf watch in July for husband's birthday in Sep. Used twice. Does not hold charge. Crystal cracked on second time out. Cannot return or exchange since that option expired after one month of purchase. Disappointing.

Great watch but lousy battery

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: Great watch lousy battery. Given Garmin's expertise in engineering electronics, I can't believe that the battery pooped out after 1 year of moderate use. The positive of no ongoing charges for subscription fees, etc.
