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.
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.
Summary: Just bought this and used it for 4 rounds with temps in the 50-60's. I wanted something that was easier and quicker to use as compared to a laser rangefinder. It appears to be very accurate, you can readily find the course you're going to play, it's easy to learn to use and logical, and it...
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.
Summary: Sold to me as "refurbished" or "reconditioned" when I called Garmin for some help with deleting several old scorecards to technician informed me the presence of those old scorecards indicated this was a "used" device, not "reconditioned".
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.
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.
