Smartwatch UI to track club used

I would like to see the ability to indicate which club was used on a particular shot from the watch UI. 

By default, it could use the suggested club based on distance to green, but then you could use a small button or wrist gesture to bump the club up or down depending on what you're using for the situation. This would allow players without tags to get shot statistics as if they had tags.

Hi Joe - Thanks for checking in. This feature is planned to be available this summer as part of our stand-alone smart watch feature for Android Gear S. As soon as we have launched, we'll post an update in the forum as well as FB and Twitter. We'll most likely also email current users. If you stay tuned with one of those methods, you'll be among the first to know. :)

That is amazing. So pleased because it really is the best golf app I've tried. This will be a massive cherry on the top for me. Thanks for your response.

Wow, didn't think I'd ever have to dust off the old android watch! Sounds great. 

The NFC tags have been working great too. i just have to remember to tag!!

Will the feature to select club from android wear be added?  I purchased the subscription solely to be able to track from my android wear.  The lack of ability to select a club makes it worthless, I still need to pull my phone out on every shot.

Brandon - thanks for your patience. I've confirmed we will be adding to Android Wear, however it will be available on Samsung watches first. We don't have a specific target date for Android at this time.

Thanks for the update.  Let me know when the feature will be avail.  This is the only thing keeping me from paying the subscription.  I will have to evaluate other apps in the meantime.

Yes, I’m very much in favour of this feature. I ditched the tags years ago as they don’t last 5 minutes in typical UK winter weather and I certainly wouldn’t like to pay for replacements at the current cost - which I think is about three times as much as the Shotscope tags. I edit the round immediately I’ve finished and I can (almost) remember all of the clubs I used. Would much prefer to enter the club used at the time of use! Otherwise, I think GolfPad is a very superior product.

Really really really need club selection on Android WearOS watches. Its the main thing holding us back. After tapping +Shot, just bring up a scrollable list of clubs to choose. two taps is all it would take. You could even get smart with it and have it pull up the "most likely" club you are using based on distance. 

Or even making Golf Tags able to tap your watch instead of the phone would be cool as well. 

Wouldn't any NFC enabled watch be able to tap the tags?

Should be, right? Just not willing to take the $100 risk if that doesn't work.

I had the tags on my clubs for a few seasons but I have since sold them  I did like them, but I got what I needed from them.  I found after about 50 or 60 rounds, over the course of two seasons I stopped using them.  With using them a lot less I decided to part ways with them.  Sadly, I never tested with my watch tapping the tags.  I am sure one of the Devs will see this, and update the thread on the expectation if they would work or not :)

Taylor - using the watch to tag the shot with TAGS/NFC is a feature we have on our roadmap, but no firm timeline on when we'll have it available. We hear you all and appreicate the input. We work hard to give our users everything they want, sometimes it just takes longer than we'd like. 

Steve - I'm glad to hear you got good use out of the TAGS. We don't have the watch/tags combo yet. Perhaps when we do, you'll want to give it another try. 

Cindy, any word on just doing a simple club selection from watch? Thanks for responding here.
I really did like them they were great, in fact still a very loyal Golfpad gps subscriber best golfgps app in the business ;)
