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.

I really like the watch app but I wish I knew what all the buttons mean. Also can you put a penalty stroke on the watch or do you have to use the phone?
Hi Reggie - Yes, you can add a penalty from the watch. This article has some screenshots about the watch function that may help. - Cindy
Hi Rich - thank you so much for your feedback. We're happy to hear it's helping you, especially as a new golfer. We keep update/release notes in the app store. You are correct that GPS is a factor in battery usage during a round, because it's active during the round to provide accurate data. Here's an article that will help with battery optimizations. I'll be sure the team gets your feedback about battery usage. - Cindy
