Used the grint today on my AW2. Bluetooth off worked good. Little slow to catch up but when it did it was right on.

FWIW, I've been using SwingxSwing (free version) on my Apple Watch.  I can't believe you can't scroll to the next hole by swiping the watch's screen.  After each hole, it usually progresses to the next hole (after asking to input your score).  But if you forget to input your score and now you're two holes ahead, you can't just swipe until you're on the next hole.  You have to wait until the app thinks you've progressed.  So I'm constantly having to wait until the app thinks I'm ready to input my score.  If you're two holes ahead, heaven forbid you're screwed.  It is so bizarre.  The one thing you can do is swipe right and you can get to a screen that toggles between gross score or net score, but that doesn't allow you to input your score - it's just a setting which is completely useless.  How do the developers not allow you to swipe to the correct hole?  This is the free version - maybe there's a paid version that does that, but I'm not about to pay for any version when the free version is so bad.  Love it when it works, but that's usually for just part of the round.  IMHO

It looks like a lot of people like both Hole 19 and The Grint.  Has anyone used both that could comment on the differences?  I have been using GolfLogix but wanting to make a switch and plan on using the new app with an AW.

I have used both and like each for different reasons.  My personal opinion is the Grint has a better user experience on the AW Than h19. It's not bad on H19 just not as easy and intuitive as the Grint. That said the Grint is a battery hog.  I'm on the original Apple Watch and a full round leaves with hardly anything left in the battery.  I also don't really care for the Grints app. I find H19 app way better and easier to use.  It's watch interface has gotten better with updates.  It's. Battery usage is WAY better.  I still have 40% left when done with 18 holes with H19.  


I continue to use H19.

So I tried Game Golf because I really liked the apple watch interface.

I went out first hole my watch told me I was 855 yards away from the pin. UGH!
My phone was working fine.

Any of the other apps like that where you can leave your phone in your bag and just use your watch?

I have been using TrackMyGolf. It has an easy interface. It's downside is that it gives yardage to green, but no information on hazards.

I too have been using Trackmygolf for almost a year. Simple, effective, and quickly updates yardages. You can use it to track your round as it recognizes when you swing. You're able to edit the swing with club info or leave it blank. Either way the swing location is stored immediately and thus you can edit later without wasting time trying to mark a location. Wish it had hazard info. Emailed support and they said it won't be available for some time.

I have been using Hole 19 with the AW and it works great imo.   I have been turning off Bluetooth on the phone, so that I do have to worry about having my phone by my ball when I need a distance.   The score keeping is very easy to use.  

I may have to look in to track my golf.   I assume it is similar except it also includes club tracking?

yes.

Hole 19 is the best by far for me. As far as the app on the iPhone, the watch and battery life it doesn't use.  

Just need the HC and it would be perfect

I'm going to try Golfshot on my AW now that it seems to work with the watches built in GPS. So far none of the other apps have come close to replacing Golfshot that I have tried.

You have to make sure to turn off BT on your phone or Golfshot on your AW will pull the GPS data from there.

SO if your have BT off on your phone I take it you wont have any link between the watch and your phone for text and emails and calls? Or you still will if you keep wifi on?

I use game golf seems like it drains my watch badly Im wondering if its the bluetooth connection thats killing it. Plus when Im not in range it screws up the data link

That is correct. So no BT link between the phone and watch.

When I first tried Golfshot in my AW2 I could not get it to use the AW's GPS. Apparently its fixed now but you do have to kill the BT.

Pretty disappointed with the Grint so far. Compared to the garmin S20 there is no comparison--- my AW2 is terribly slow to catch up on some holes and acceptable on others. There distances are fairly consistent but some holes I am still getting the distance from the tee when I am on the green.
I have gone back to the S20 I just pin it to my shorts and wear the apple watch on my wrist.
Wish garmin would come out with an APP that works as well as the S20 with the same functionality.
Don't know if it is getting confused with the blue tooth on -- the phone is in the cart and the watch is on my wrist. but if I turn BT off then I lose the functionality of the watch/phone connection.

I have been using Golf Pad GPS after using Golflogix for years, but found it laggy and buggy on the watch. Golf Pad GPS works almost perfectly and keep track of almost everything right from the watch. It does require the premium membership but it's pretty cheap and lasts a year. I have also ordered the link system from them (still waiting for it) but looking forward to it. Used to have Arcos as well and I theory seemed like the best choice but it would randomly stop tracking things, so instead of just playing I was spending more time checking to see if shots were tracked etc.

I have the apple watch series 2 now as well so battery and speed are really nice.

Just thowing a few more options out there...

Cheers
TJ

i have the original AW and love it for golf.  i wanted an all inclusive device and not switch for daily use, activity and then for golf.  i was using a garmin S1 before.  i downloaded the Hole 19 app and have been very happy with it.  the AW was kinda slow before they updated earlier this year, but now its snappy.  im sure AW2 is even better.  the H19 app keep handicap, all my rounds, scorecard, and distance to the hole.

Is Hole 19 a free App?

You have to make sure to turn off BT on your phone or Golfshot on your AW will pull the GPS data from there.

SO if your have BT off on your phone I take it you wont have any link between the watch and your phone for text and emails and calls? Or you still will if you keep wifi on?

I use game golf seems like it drains my watch badly Im wondering if its the bluetooth connection thats killing it. Plus when Im not in range it screws up the data link

That is correct. So no BT link between the phone and watch.

When I first tried Golfshot in my AW2 I could not get it to use the AW's GPS. Apparently its fixed now but you do have to kill the BT.

For me no link back to the iPhone is a good thing. I hate getting notifications when I am golfing. Way too disruptive

I dont mind it either. It makes it so Arccos doesn't work though so for me its one or the other. Still going back and forth on keeping Arccos.
