New release from Garmin. Does anyone know if the golf part is similar to the vivoactive HR or if it's better?

I know it's not a dedicated golf GPS watch, but it's easier to justify spending the money when it does more than just give me distances and swing metrics.

Used mine today for the first time for golf.  Seems to work ok with a couple of issues.  Watch ran out of battery after about 12 holes.  Wasn't fully charged so need to check if it will make a full round if 100% charged.  Second problem was it seemed to jump way ahead to other holes.  Not sure why.  I might should have locked the screen.  I might have been activating the change hole function when swinging (left wrist).  Have generally been happy with fitness tracking and watch function.  Keeping screen locked helps a bunch.

Used it today again.  Started with a full charge.  Did not make 18 again.  I would not recommend this for golf.  A bit disappointing actually.  Locking the screen did not help either.  For some reason it would not stay locked as it still kept jumping to the wrong hole.  Sad.
