  • Everything You Need in a Golf Watch
    Reviewed by NorthernLite16 - October 23, 2021

    I received this watch last week since my old Garmin S1 no longer fully charged and the charging clip spring snapped almost immediately after purchase. This watch is way better overall. I only had the opportunity to try it out on the only golfable day remaining this season and found it excellent. It included distance to hazards which I loved and the yardages were very accurate. This watch has all the courses already installed and the buttons are very easy to navigate. I love the interface and the watch itself is very attractive. I got this watch at a good sale price online and picked up in a Best Buy store close by. The service by BestBuy was excellent. I got the black watch, but am going to order a light coloured strap next spring from the Garmin site. We find the Garmin products very good quality, reliable, and the customer service has been excellent on the two occasions we had to avail of it.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
