With the Golf Pad app, your Apple Watch becomes a useful GPS rangefinder. Here are the steps to use your Apple Watch (including Apple Series 2) with Golf Pad. 


  • First, be sure you have the latest version of Golf Pad on your iPhone. iOS 9 and Watch OS 2 are required.
  • Next, open the Apple Watch app on the iPhone, scroll down until you see Golf Pad and turn on the 'Show App on Apple Watch' toggle.
  • Finally, start a golf round on the phone. You'll see the GPS rangefinder distances (and more) right on the watch.


Tip: to make sure Golf Pad is shown on Apple Watch whenever you raise your wrist, please change the following settings on your iPhone:

- Open Apple Watch app

- Select General

- Select Wake Screen

- Choose 'Resume Last Activity'
