I played in tons of virtual courses with it
I can’t imagine playing without my Garmin golf watch. I do wish they’d let you select the fairway hot as soon as you hit the shot, rather than waiting until you finish the hole. Also, let us specify left, right, short or long on all shots.
I had various apps and gadgets to help improve my game and visualize it but it got in the way of playing the actual game. I switched over to the Garmin ecosystem and couldnt be happier. I have a S62 and my wife has the G12. That gives us gps ranges and also keeps score. The app syncs our data and lets us see how we are progressing. My S62 also uses the app data to power the Virtual Caddie which is great!
Got an approach G 12 and downloaded the app. My yardages are always right and I can’t find a course it doesn’t know. Absolutely clutch.
Love the app. Starting on the back 9 sometimes makes the app hard to use. Doesn’t show distance only the scoring part, if you don’t start on the front 9. very useful thou.
Tracking shots used to be very accurate. Has gotten progressively worse the last few months. Misses about 50% of drives. Adds extra shots all the time. Shocking how you could take something that works great and make it so terrible, and worse with each update. Definitely would not recommend.
I love my Garmin S40 for golf and tracking my activity. I’m very surprised and pleased by the durably of this watch. Thanks Garmin!
User hostile not user friendly. Gratuitously complex not intuitive. Too bad Apple didn’t make this app.
I use it every round I play. Great information to be gained from this app. Love it!
I purchased a Garmin S62, CT10 sensors, and installed the Garmin app with a thought of replacing the features that the ARCCOS system provides. The Garmin app is not even close and needs lots of work to compete in that market. If your need is a very simple application of GPS ranges and the rich features native to the S62 with tracking shots and a score the Garmin system works great. If you are looking for the sophisticated statistics ARCCOS derives from shot tracking and GPS information such as shots gained driving, approach, putting — you will be sorely disappointed. To set a context — I originally started with ARCCOS sensors and the app. I bought the wearable receiver and found it missed shots. Having an iPhone in my front pocket to detect shots was too obstructive in my swing. Plus just having to open an iPhone to get GPS data was highly inconvenient. Early version of the Apple Watch interface did not work for me plus the watch face was not large enough to be practical. The S62 watch, CT10 sensors, and the Garmin golf app offered a solution. Plus Garmin is a one time purchase Vs a subscription model. The shot tracking overall is much better and I find reading information from the larger S62 face to be very adequate and thus no need for my iPhone to be out of the bag. (Things like wind require a connection). So the Garmin system replaces basic golf GPS and shot tracking applications . However, the Garmin golf application is quite limited and I have no hope of future improvement. The poor reviews of the application are mainly centered on design . For example, the ARCCOS app easily allows me to audit shots per club. I have a 530 yard 5 hybrid shot the Garmin system recorded that is obviously from the sensor picking up a shot between holes. Likely when I set the club down and then teed off with a different club. In ARCCOS I would open a list of shots pet club, quickly locate the bad data point and then delete it. Garmin requires the user to go through the data hole by hole round by round to find a shot to edit. I still have not found this shot. Then there are shots I do not want to be averaged because I used the club as a chip or safety shot and the data point would cause noise but I want to record that I made that shot with that club .. no can do .. The Garmin app tries to look like a sophisticated golf tool but the information provided is meaningless . It does not track putt distances for example nor track short game information like the ARCCOS app. I suspect the bad reviews are from that perspective. The golfer that wants to track their shots using a reliable convenient watch gps will be satisfied but the golfer who desires sophisticated information derived from tracking shots will be sorely disappointed with the Garmin GPS application.
