You will need to use the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone to install the Golf Pad watch app.
1. Open Galaxy Wearable on the phone and connect to your Gear/Galaxy watch.
2. Open 'Galaxy Store' in Galaxy Wearable.
3. Type 'Golf Pad' in the search bar at the top and proceed to install or update the Golf Pad watch app.
4. Once the app is installed, you will be able to see it in the apps list on the watch. Start the watch app when you start the golf round on the phone and enjoy the convenience of instant rangefinder distances and easy shot tracking (see this page for the full list of features supported).

Note 1: Golf Pad watch app requires phone connection throughout the round by default. For standalone operation please refer to this article.
Note 2: if you have the original Gear watch (2013 model, version SM-V700), you need to ensure it runs the latest Tizen firmware (this watch originally shipped with an older Android firmware). Please refer to this page for firmware upgrade instructions.
