Simple and functional

I’ve been using the Garmin S20 for the better part of year, a friend told me about the Garmin Golf app within the last couple months, I feel like an idiot for not having been using the app along with the watch the entire time. It does a great job of journalizing your rounds, tracking stats and even calculating your handicap. I play 4 times a week, so I’ve developed a large sample size, the app let’s me know how far I hit each club, it tracks historical data where you can look up every shot you’ve played on a single hole over a period of time and it has greatly improved my course management and my overall scores. Great job keeping it simple and user friendly, even old people should be able to figure it out!! Lol

Ability to edit saved rounds from phone app needed.

For us old timers who are still running with the F3HR we don’t have the capability to input fairway hits and putts into the device while in play. Would be beneficial to us if the app allowed you to do this to saved rounds, not while round is in play. I leave my phone in the car when on the course and could then input the data while at the clubhouse. Who wants to hook up to their computer to input the info? In other words, allow users of older devices to play out the round on the device then save it. Once saved we can then edit the round on the app (i.e. fairway hits, GIR, putts). Having these additional statistics means a lot to us.

X40 watch

Pros: fairly accurate distance to holes, good sir distance measuring, like the scorekeeping and syncing to Garmin golf app which saves all your scorecards and stats. Bluetooth to phone let's you know when you get a call or text and every other notification which I don't like.
Cons: Hazard distances are not good and difficult to maneuver. Can't fine tooth notifications. Seems to be all or nothing. Can only get 2 round on a battery charge.
I really do like using the watch had a handheld Garmin gps and enjoy having the device on my wrist and not have to carry it.
I don't use the activity tracker so can't comment on that.
