  • A few bugs
    Reviewed by wendken - 21 août 2019

    There are a few bugs in the system. It takes a LONG time to find the course to start. Sometimes it will keep score correctly; other times not so much. Very inconsistent with whether or not it shows the distance of each shot; at least one or two holes it doesn't ask for score for that hole. Loses contact with my phone in a short distance. I would like to have the flexibility to choose what notifications I receive while playing and not every notification on my phone. Would like to receive only phone calls and texts, but no way to turn everything else off. Overall, I like the watch - I would appreciate these bugs being fixed.

  • Functional with plenty of features
    Reviewed by Cobra golfer - 20 août 2019

    I've had the S40 for a few months and it's pretty nice... Battery is good for about 2 rounds ( if you play consecutive days)... My particular watch takes a little bit of time locating satellites, but once it finally does it functions well. I have used it through many rounds and it's been very reliable very comfortable and easy to use... Very happy with my S40 and I would recommend to anyone looking for a golf watch.. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the battery could last a little longer and locating satellites can be a struggle sometimes.... To me it's a 4.5 star watch

  • Best watch ever!
    Reviewed by Jillo - 20 août 2019

    I had an S20 and really liked it. When the S40 hit the market I was immediately interested based solely on the look. BUT, this is much more than an attractive watch and yardage tool. The touch screen is awesome and I love that I can easily move the flag around and get my yardage. And track other activities as well. Timer for my grilling is also very handy because it is right on my wrist! The wearability is great. Very comfortable and the bands come off for cleaning which is nice. This device has everything I need. Would buy it again without hesitation.
