Summary: It is not as easy to use as I'd hoped. If you just use it for distances from tee to green it works well, but if you try to retrieve distances to pre-marked hazzards it becomes difficult. Courses load quickly, which is a plus.
Excerpt: I bought this thinking it will be faster than using a range finder. Range Finders make it difficult to measure traps/hazards etc. Plus they are larger making a little awkward when carts paths only only or cart restricted.
Summary: THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THIS WATCH IS GREAT. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, EXCEPT....I have had it for less than a year and I have had to send it back for replacement 3(or 4) times already due to the fact that either the band was coming loose to the point where I could not wear it , or the rubber around...
Summary: This version has clear resolution and there options to place the pin at different green locations. It is not as easy to get started as the S2 version. Once you get it going, it works fine, and is easy to use. The battery in the distance-finder will not last 36 holes.
Watch Jumps around to different holes while your on the course

Summary: Bought this watch for my father last year. The watch has started jumping from hole to hole when my father is say on hole 3 it will say he's on hole 5, or 12. I now have to contact Garmin to get the watch warrantied. If this watch only lasts 1 year I would not pay the price for this item.
Summary: My expectations were higher. Front back middle are reasonably accurate. My disappointment is with layup. It does not give layup to hazards. All it does is math. If you are 250 out and want to layup to 100, hit it 150 yards. I can do that math myself.
Does what is advertises but would not recommend white band.

Summary: Received the watch this Christmas and have only had a chance to use about 12 times before this review. Very light weight, Give pretty good yardages but cant seem to put the range finder down for exact measurements. Long the shot distance feature and use it quite a bit.
