Could someone who has received it please post a pic or two of the unit when wristmounted? I.e. to get a grasp of the bulkiness & fit, both topview and sideview (height & width)

For me, the firmware needs to work OK (but winter here in Sweden gives them plenty of time to sort that crap out), but the unit size is also a possible deterrent.

Going to use mine for the first time next week. Any tips from people who have already taken theirs for a spin?

just make sure you download your course to the watch before hand, select gps + track so you can track your shots as well as getting yardages and remember to use the pin collect over the hole to record your puts. I have played twice and it worked fine. I  had about 15 round with the old watch and it worked fine as well.

Make sure you download course before hand, turn on only at the course, pick start round, it should scroll the name of the course on the watch, pick GPS+Track in upper right hand corner and play. ITs important to only turn on at the course. Turn off and back on if you turn it on before hand. Give it time to acquire signal if its your first time, up to ten minutes

As for picture on wrist. Its about 1cm thick I think

Any further updates? Hope to use mine for the first time tomorrow.


I do not own a computer, only an iPad Pro and an iPhone... am I going to be missing some of the usability of the unit? Notice it talks about the desktop in the instructions.... for example, can't seem to find anywhere in the app to name my clubs etc..

Cheers

you can use your ipad/phone for everything Use the app to add  your courses to the unit, then use your browser on your ipad to log into the shotscope website where you can edit your round and set up the clubs you have The editing can only be done on he website using a browser and not the app at the moment

So finally had a chance to try out the watch. Pre-loaded a bunch of courses around me plus a few in Pinehurst as that was where I was going. Played Mid Pines on Thursday. Course was pre-loaded. Get to the course and it takes forever to find a satellite. Turns out it cant find the course because the map was missing? Turns out the only map that pre-loaded successfully was Dormie. Tried using it there but the battery was dead.

Issues I seem to be having

Desktop app is saying maps are pre-loaded and ready to use. Watch is disagreeing
Can't seem to upgrade the firmware. It says it upgraded but when I look at last updated it says never. My firmware version is 1.2.2
Battery dies very quickly. Even if I try to shut the watch down with full power; the watch will still run out of power.
The tabs are very loose on my clubs. Have already lost one.

Size of the watch is not a concern. It is a little large but not something that bothers me

I happen to be in the very same area it seems as ^^^^ that guy playing the same exact courses. I got to use the Garmin S60 finally and it worked flawlessly. At least once I figured out how to jump to a hole if you didnt start on hole one. Very happy I returned the Shot Scope as I never got it to work correctly as the S60 worked great.

I'm just sitting here in the snow hoping some updates will make this a better product by April.

Connecting to GPS, battery life, tags fallout out...not the problems I thought they'd have out of the gate.  Probably thinking of returning, too good to be true?

Edit:  Return policy is 14 days upon receipt of product so that's out the door..

Yeah I was lucky I gave mine a try right after receiving it. No worky and sent it back. Got lucky with the short return policy.
