The screen visability is very good and the course information is also very good, which helps when you play a new course. The yardage seems pretty spot on. It's nice and light on the wrist and the ability to swap the straps is a breeze. All the activity tracking for other sports are all there but I haven't really used them and it's waterproof which is a massive plus, battery life in watch mode I can almost get two weeks out of it by not using any of the GPS functions.
There is minimal instruction on how to use the watch lucky I've had garmin products before, as you will need to get the app on your phone to get the best out of the watch. The screen could be a little bigger and better resolution. Sometimes the watch struggles to get a signal to GPS and bluetooth with the phone which can be annoying. It feels cheaply made the plastic body feels flimsy and considering the price point for this watch it seems over priced
