The battery life was not what they said it would be. Touch screen much too sensitive, make a shot and have to go find the screen that you were at when you started. I have several Garmin products and this one is not up to the quality I except from this company.
There is a lot to learn about using this. Great for courses with blind shots. (Thanks Jack) I was skeptical about wearing this during the round but it is comfortable and light. I would have given 5 stars but it is difficult to master all of the apps.
