  1. I had to try a few times to get the latest firmware to update, not sure what the issue was, but it finally worked after 4-5 tries (turn off the band and force close the app between tries). Their support team is normally very responsive, seems like others are seeing delayed responses too so there must be something going on, but I have to assume it's temporary. I urge you to give it another shot before refunding, hopefully you can get it sorted.
  2. Not sure if anyone had answered you directly yet, but anyway...I have not had this issue, I assume ending/restarting got things working for you again? Definitely report it to their support team, I'm sure they would want to know. I did have one instance of the GPS dropping after the 1st hole so it didn't log shots, but somehow it did continue to give me yardages and allow me to use pinselect. I only found out after I tried to sync the round and it wasn't there, Shotscope support noted the issue and I think did implement some sort of fix in the latest firmware.
  3. Finally got the firmware update to work, it kept freezing at 99%. You guys bring up good points with the value of having the band on the wrist to track all shots, it's doable on the cart, but it would involve a lot of editing after the round.
  4. I will have to test it out during my next round, it would be cool to have the Shotscope on my pushcart and be able to wear my fitbit instead. I was just basing my thought off of the instructions they have on how to use the tags. Right now I'm still struggling to update the firmware, so we'll see if I can at least get that done today.
  5. I'm not sure tapping the tag with the band would work effectively, as far as I know the prolonged close proximity you get from holding/swinging the club is what triggers a shot read. Might be a good question to pose to ShotScope directly. In other news, there is a firmware update out today, I seem to be getting stuck at 99% sync to update it though, anyone else having issues? I've tried closing/re-opening the app, might try turning the band off/on as well and try again.

  7. @fixyurdivot over the weekend I drained the battery to 12% after 2 full rounds that took roughly 4 hours each. Fully charged from there in about 1.4 - 1.5 hours, so that's about on par with what others have reported. I also had a lengthy period where I just left the band on to use as a watch to try to drain the battery more, after a 3.5 hour 18 hole round today I was sitting at 68% charge from starting full.
  8. I haven't timed it out and haven't had my V3 battery drop below 50% yet, but from about half charge it got to full fairly quickly, certainly seemed to be much less than 2.5 hours. I don't know about the claim of 50% more battery life, my V2 would be at about 40% after a 4 hour round using tracking and GPS, V3 is 50-60%. First time out with it I played 18 in 3 hours with GPS and tracking, left the band on overnight by accident, and had 67% when I plugged it in the next day. I'm playing a couple rounds over the next few days so I will try to remember to time the battery charging. If I still have at least 55% battery after one round I'll play the second on the same charge to drain the battery and try to time a full charge.
  9. Update on my lost round, unfortunately it looks like the GPS dropped after the 1st hole, so nothing ended up being recorded. I guess when they initially said my round was there they could see I hit play, but didn't see it was dropped. They did ask me if I could still get yardages and hit pincollect throughout the round, which I could, so there was no indication the GPS dropped. I'll see if they say anything else, but at the very least I hope this alerted them of a possible issue that can hopefully be addressed. From what I have seen their team is on top of things, so I don't expect ongoing issues. This is the first time a GPS drop has ever caused a round to be lost since I've been using the V2 and now V3. Edit: literally just got an email back, they are looking into the firmware to ensure a GPS drop does not occur. They also said this is highly unusual behavior from the band, which my own experience reflects. So hopefully it won't happen to anyone else.
  10. Agreed. This first week with the V3 is the first time I've experienced any sort of issues, a few months ago with the V2 there was a course that had changed names so I sent it to them, within 12 hours they had it all changed in the database. I'm confident we'll figure out what went wonky with my lost round, it's on my account somewhere, I just can't see it.
  11. Hmm, interesting. In my app 2020 is the only year I can select and the only year I have stats/rounds for, so maybe something similar happened. Thanks for the insight, if they email me back without a solution I will mention that.
  12. I had a weird issue happen to me the other day where I played a full round, hit end round on the 18th green, then a few hours later went to sync to mobile and edit/finalize the round. Somehow it just wasn't there, no history in the band, and the app will not pick up the new round. I have a support conversation open with ShotScope so I will update here if there is a resolution, but I was curious if anyone else had that happen to them, and if so did you solve it. They did tell me they can see the round played on my account, I guess it's just in purgatory or something. So far I've tried logging out/back in to the app and deleting and reinstalling the app to no avail. Left it connected to the band via Bluetooth for about 10 mins, refreshing periodically, but it didn't pick it up.
  13. I've used the V3 for 2 rounds now, upgrading from a V2. I am personally a fan of the smaller size, it's like wearing a fitbit. A few notes, most of which will echo what has already been said: - Battery life definitely improved. I played 18 in 3 hours using tracking and GPS, ended the round on the watch but left it on so I could see the time. Synced up the round later that evening and forgot to shut the watch off so it stayed on overnight and all next day, when I put it on the charger it still had 67% battery. With V2 I could play 18 with tracking and GPS and be at 40% after 1 round, even when it was brand new. - Screen/display quality improved. Much easier to see in bright sunlight - GPS is just as accurate as V2, seems within a yard or two when compared to my Bushnell laser and pin sheet. - Buttons are a bit large compared to the rest of the unit now, maybe could have been smaller/sleeker but I'm not an engineer, no idea if that is necessary due to the internal design. - GPS does take a few minutes to find you when you hit play, noticeably longer than V2. Not sure if playing the same course frequently will help speed it up, but so far played twice in two days and took a long time on both occasions. I'll keep an eye on this as I get more rounds in. - I did have some issues setting the V3 up/getting the firmware update. I accidentally backed out of the app on the phone before it started syncing, and it froze. Force closed the app and restarted the watch, then it worked. - I wish there was a way to "pause" your round, last time out there was a group in front and no one behind, so we did some putting and chipping around a couple greens to wait, and it messed with the shot tracking. Nothing I couldn't fix after the round. - I did have one instance where a driver registered as a PW, no clue how that happened, never had it happen before on the V2. - Also had two instances of practice swings registering as shots, basically just showed double shots on the app afterwards so I had to delete the extras. Could have also been down to waiting for a partner to hit and gripped the club so the tag registered, so I will have to be mindful of that. Overall I'm happy with V3, and from what I can see the ShotScope team is always working on improvements, main thing is I'm hoping the time to pick up on GPS can be cut down. It's fine if I think to hit play when I'm leaving the practice green or walking to the tee, but it takes long enough that if you hit play on the first tee, even after 3 other people hit it might not be ready yet.
  14. Reporting back after almost a year of use. They held up really well, wear seemed to be actually less than the regular Tour Wrap 2G. Since I had them on the full set for almost a year and now that summer temps and humidity are in full swing here in NC, I regripped with micro suede again; they are still grippy even with sweaty hands/glove. The new ones were slightly more grippy than the old worn out ones, but honestly you could clean moderately worn out ones with soap and water and a light scrub to get rid of the dust/dirt embedded in the grip, and once they dry they're close to new. This is my new grip for the foreseeable future. Cc @B.Boston @JohnSmalls
