Summary: I have not had this watch very long, but it is the "Old Model". The mode changes from a hole to time without any notice. I sometimes have to start all over setting it from the beginning. I always charge it to make sure the charge covers the whole round.
Summary: I first tried using it at Magmolia Greens in Leland, NC and it could not home in on the course I was playing. Magnolia Greens has (3) 9 holes courses, and the display showed 2 of the courses at the same time, and I could not get it to home in on the course I was playing. It never worked as advertised, and it was a total bust at this course. I had others in my foursome try to get it to work, we had the manual so it wasn't brain damage on my part.
Summary: I love the golf watch but the charging system with the 5 small terminals having to be fit into the 5 small female receptors is the worst charging set-up I've ever seen. First it is difficult to line up (particularly for someone with vision issues as I have); and second it is easily "unplugged" when bumped or moved.
Summary: Good for what it advertises. I would advise getting the s2 so you can get more information than just the distances. I like the band and the ease of seeing the distances, but would like to not have to charge it so often and to be able to use it as a watch also. I would have given a 3.5 if they had it. It's okay to I like it is where I would have rated this.
Summary: I have found it confusing to turn it on and off. There seem to be several steps which I can't recall each time. I feel like I'm always pushing buttons to get to where I want to be. Once I have it set up it works fine and is accurate. Then I have to struggle to get it turned off.
