Depending on which Golfshot membership you have, you will be able to view specific features on your smart watch:
- For Golfshot – The hole’s par, handicap, and length as well as live GPS distances to the green.
- For Golfshot Pro – Accurate distances to all targets, hazards and greens, GPS aerial views, score entry, and shot tracking.
Golfshot Pro members can score directly from the watch. Simply go to the hole you are on, swipe to the menu and select Score. Your score will then reflect on your handheld device as well.
Golfshot Pro members can easily track shots right from their watch. Select “Track a Shot” from the main menu of the hole. Choose your club and then proceed to your ball. Click the green checkmark when you arrive at your ball and your tracked shot will be complete. These shots will contribute to your club statistics within the Golfshot app.
Since the two are paired using Bluetooth, the maximum range is 32 feet (10 meters) to receive live updating GPS distances. Without the Bluetooth connection you still may enter score and review hole information. GPS-enabled wearables like the Sony Smartwatch 3 use built-in GPS to provide you location updates directly from the watch, without a paired phone nearby.
Your wearable device should last well over an 18 hole round. Make sure to fully charge your watch before you start your round. When not in use, turn the screen off by placing your palm over the face of the watch.
