Anyone know if Grint uses the GPS on the AW2 or off the phone?

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.
