Connecting the charger is very hard

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 September 2014
  • Summary: The unit works well enough when charged . . . . . . But charging it is next to IMPOSSIBLE. It usually takes me 3 to 5 minutes of fiddling with the charger to get it to charge and then I have to put it down carefully so it stays charging. If it is bumped and the charging stops - it takes another 3 to 5 minutes of fiddling to get it to start charging a gain. Its a real pain.

Can't recommend

Cesar Lopez "Shopalot", Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I have had a few problems with the maps and have contacted Garmin with very frustrating results. If you accidentally install all maps the watch will run out of space and you will not be able to update again till you reformat the internal drive. I have had this watch for 1 month and I can't use it till Garmin gets back to me with instruction on how to format using a Mac... still waiting.

Wrist band

Paramount, reviews.golfsmith.com
23 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Wrist band is not strong enough. It breaks off easily. I once got a replacement part but it broke again. It is so complicated and takes so long to contact the customer support, I gave up.

Garmin S3 golf watch Is user unfriendly

atomman, Amazon
27 April 2013
  • Summary: This item is not recommended. It would be difficult to design a touch screen that is more user-unfriendly and frustrating than the one that this GPS golf watch has. It is very easy to bring up the icon for lock screen, and very, very difficult to bring up the selections one would like to use. The GPS feature, when one can engage it, is good. To look at the green view, lay up distances or change holes is more than a frustrating experience.

Buyer Beware No Good in US

Linda Celi, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Buyer beware! This product comes with a warning before you open it that it is NO good in the US. Only has European maps. Dont buy this if you plan on using in US. A hassle in now having to wait for RMA and credit. Seller and Amazon should make this known before someone in US purchases. Disappointed in Amazon.

Very Disappointed

GoreyDetails, Amazon
17 August 2012
  • Summary: First let me say that I really enjoy the functionality especially on courses that I am unfamiliar with. I have yet to find a course that is not pre-loaded in the watch. The watch face is easy to read in the direct sun light. Very good to know where you are on long par 5s and on any blind shots that you happen to experience. The yardage is immediate and is always spot-on, so you can trust it to select the correct club.
