How quickly does this thing charge for you? I left it plugged in over night and it didn't charge at all. I plugged it in this afternoon when I left and turned it a few different ways and it seemed to be charging. Came home 3 hours later and it went from 20% to 70%. Seems slow... Thoughts?

Just a few hours to go from 50% to 100% for me

I have had the same issue with the charging. I find cleaning the sensors after playing helps it. If there is dirt or sweat on them from the round this will cause a poor or no charge.

Credit and thanks to all you guys for diligently testing and providing the feedback to SC.  Seems like as others have said, they really like the feedback from everyone.   I'll be following the long term results of watch.

Nathan has been really helpful.  I hope to see some updates based on our feedback and if they can get things in order I might consider the annual fee but at this point I wouldn't pay it when there are other options out there that are free.  Of course that's the whole point of beta testing so its going to be a fun ride I think

When you tag shots, are you tagging half/punch/chips along with full shots? I feel like it'd mess up distances if you do. Here's a scorecard from today. It kept track really well, with only a few fixes due to me hitting extra shots/putts while I waited.

I tag every shot so that it gets accurate distances. I go into the app and clear the club post round so my distances aren't skewed

I just timed the charging of my watch. On a quick charge USB port it charges at about 20% an hour.

 

I haven't timed it on a non quick charge port, but the first time I charged the watch it was on a different port and it seemed like it too overnight to charge it from half.

The autoswing feature is not working properly and the synching feature does not work anymore either...? Anyone else having issues?

When you attempt to sync, is it not reading the watch? I wear sunscreen every round and sometimes it will get on the watch and won't read on the laptop when I sync. Take a q-tip with some rubbing alcohol and swab the four magnets where you attach the USB cord. That takes care of it for me. 

 

The autoswing has worked about 95% of the time for me. Every now and then when I check my stuff on the computer, I'll see a missed shot or wayward shot.

Mine is the other way. When I'm able to sync my round scores are between 6 and 11... which is obviously incorrect

Had issues yesterday, was spraying the ball in to the other fairway, so the watch thought I was playing that hole. 

 

Really need an easier way to scan the club and have it not count to the average, for chips, pitches, etc. I know just dont scan it, but then I start to forget to scan them all.

I played yesterday and even though I tagged my shots and the watch read them correctly and they appeared correct on each hole map, the scorecard was showing incorrect clubs. I emailed Nathan (poor guy probably getting flooded with emails on this test), but haven't heard back. 

 

On the bright side, I've played 6 rounds with this watch and despite my putting woes, my scores have dropped an average of 2 strokes. I previously used a laser range finder but this GPS watch is doing wonders for course strategy. Of the six rounds, four have been at courses I've never played/play only a few times a year. So while the technology still has bugs, the scores have reflected the benefit of this watch.

It's pretty easy to change the holes on the watch with the buttons on the top and bottom of the right side of the watch...at least for me it is.

The GT2 manual says to use the divot tool on shots like that. The club will show up as "---" but it will record the shot.

I was just going to mention this! Nathan just emailed me that this morning. Thanks!

Just went to sync my round from this morning and nothing. It shows two blank rounds...with none of my marked shots. Watch had trouble finding the course. Had to restart it a few times until it did.

Easy to do, if you know it auto switched holes. I sliced my drive on hole one in to hole 7 fairway, the rest of hole 1, it had me playing hole 7.  (Wasnt really paying attention to distance because it was my home course and I know what clubs to hit)
