Big Samsung smartwatch update!

Golf Pad is now even more useful on Samsung smartwatches! Here's a few things we just added:

- Improved display for GPS distances and current hole number and score, making it easier to see outdoors.

- Additional information like elevation change to target, distances to layup points, current shot tracking distance.

- Mark flag right on the watch or use 'putt out' option to complete a hole score without adding individual shots.

- Use one of three modes for keeping score on the watch: total score entry, track shot location, or track shots location and clubs. Select your preferred mode in Golf Pad settings on the phone.

Swipe left or right to change hole. Swipe up or down or use bezel to show the extra information. Tap screen to keep score. The new features are available on watches running Tizen 4 OS (Gear S3 or newer). Download the latest Golf Pad watch app: version 5.4.4 or later is required.


Version 15.10 of the phone app is required to enable some of these features like layup points. 


We'd love to hear what you think! If you run into issues or have questions, please reach out.

I need to send you a video of the issues I'm having but the file is too large to add to a new ticket. Where should I send it to please?

Tobybarker - I will email you directly. - Cindy

Hello, Don't know if anyone else is having this problem but I run the app in standalone mode and in airplane mode to get accurate GPS but it now seems to be frequently exiting the app on the watch and I don't know why? It will then regularly freeze or crash the watch when trying to reload the app. Any help much appreciated as in general it works really well. Thanks, Chris
