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.

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.

I just received mine and play 18 today.  Worked flawlessly for me and i used bluetooth sync'ing for both course downloads and my round thru my IPAD.    It identified the satellites in 5 minutes or less and it captured every real swing throughout the 18 holes.  I was testing this out with practice swings and it was great. It did not record any practice swings but only real swings.    I have used the V1 in 2017 and i really enjoyed the GPS data on the V2.

I have used 3 different Garmin devices - S6, S20 and X40.  My kids took the S6 and X40 now and i will use this.   I think this is much easier to view rounds and edit than the horrible Garmin website that i absolutely hated.    
I dont believe you will get 8 hours of battery life with GPS mode but i think you will get two rounds before having to charge it.  
The GPS distances were really good and i compared it with my laser - pretty spot on across every hole I checked.

The sync of the round thru bluetooth took less then 3 minutes and i was viewing my round immediately.   I liked how you sync thru ipad but can view on any PC with your user ID and PW on the shotscope website.

I have asked about this several times but just don't know why no company would allow you to capture what ball you are using.   It is equipment, is it not?    That is valuable information considering all the great balls out there now would love to see how they compare during a round against each other.

Anybody had battery issues with this?

I haven't used it yet besides connecting and adding some courses out of the box when I first received it.  It has been sitting idle with the battery drained.  Gave it a full charge last night and 7 hours later it was down to 55%.

It wasn't connecting to GPS or doing anything at all.  45% discharge over 7 hours while standby doesn't seem right.

Answer from Shot-Scope is that I should expect that kind of battery life until a firmware fix comes in.  Also just realized they sent me a faulty USB cable so I couldn't connect to desktop and update firmware.  Now I'm on whatever update has been pushed out most recently.  Hopefully its an improvement.

The whole thing smells like they shipped an unfinished product.

Giving this a bump...

We are more than half way into April and more if the States are out playing. Any updates reviews? MGS has a good review out there.

Thanks and play well.

Just got one and will put it to the test tomorrow.

I have tiny wrists. Girly wrists. It's not as bulky as I thought. Sure, it's no swatch watch, but it's fine.

They keep releasing new features! Added editing capabilities to their mobile apps today which is pretty useful for the occasional mishap.

Have to say I have been really impressed with V2, haven't used it in a club comp yet because of the weather but in bounce games the accuracy for distances has been spot on and performance tracking is pretty much as flawless as you can get.

Noticed listing on a few UK retailers as well so they must be starting to get some traction. Surprised WRX doesn't do a technology section or review of this as it is such an interesting segment.

Got mine last week and have used it three times.  The course I play has 3 nines, the middle nine had 3 holes that were mislabeled related to the par.  Emailed customer service and they fixed it in one day.  I checked the accuracy against my Garmin s20 and FMB were always within 2 yards if each other.  I actually like the readability of the hazard features of the Shotscope over the s20.  Excellent product and interesting short game numbers, I am not living up to my name.
