Just got the V3 and having issues pairing it up to the app on the phone to setup. Anyone have any issues like this? I get to the point where I enter the code and it eventually times out... 

I think another user had the same issue here. Go back a few pages... but not sure if their support provided any solution.

I finally got mine today.

I've had the V2 since 2018 and have now played 3 rounds with the new V3.

  • Much better looking than the V2.  No comparison really.
  • The new band is much more comfortable.  Big improvement.
  • I did not switch to the new tags yet, but everything has worked just fine.
  • My upgrade process was smooth and easy.
  • I had over 50% power when my 18 hole round was over and it charges WAY faster then the old model.  If I wanted to play 36 it would be easy to plug it into a portable charger or a clubhouse plug for 30 minutes.  That was not true of the V2.
  • One major criticism is the proprietary charger.  It's an odd choice, but I suppose it will be an extra revenue stream for them when people buy 2nd charges to keep in the car or to replace ones that are lost of break.  Of course it will also produce a lot of angry customers when it takes a week to get the new charger.

Overall really happy with the new watch.  Still an amazing value and a great product.

Agree with you on the proprietary charger. Looks like a lot of smart devices are going this route of the 4 pin contact charging with minor changes to the clip itself. I was hoping one of those could work with the V3 since there are some magnetic options but prob don't want to risk shorting something out with incorrect contacts.

I'm a little disappointed on all the data that I missed out on recording as I wait, for what seems like forever, for my V3 to show up. Still no tracking info so I sure hope it's on it's way. Don't know if anyone else in Canada has gotten theirs.  My buddy still has his V2 and says he's waiting to see my V3 before deciding whether to upgrade.

Yes I had this very issue.  It would go to 99% and virtually hang forever.  Retried it four or five times.  Then I got it to work by Turning off the phone AND the watch and rebooting both.   Then it finally updated completely.  Hope that helps.  Also forget any V2 that you have connected with bluetooth.  That also interferes.  Do not have a V2 lying around active.

Here's my mini review:

The new shot scope is an update to the V2 model. It's sleeker, slimmer, and has a much better look to it. The battery is very good. I don't think I can get 2 full rounds out of it, but def 27 holes and maybe pushing it to the 36 number. The V2 could get 18, but 27 was pushing it and I never came close to 36 in a single session. They say that the tags are updated for better performance but I didn't notice a difference, actually I noticed that the watch missed more shots with the V3 than with the V2.
The GPS took a very long time to update the first time I played. Roughly 3 minutes. I am glad I turned it on when I did instead of when I got to the Tee box (like I have to with the V2 to get the most battery out of it). Now I did have the L1 + L5 setting on to maximize GPS (although I don't think there are many L5 sats in the sky that are usable right now according to other readings I have found). So the battery probably drained a little more than if I had it on just the L1 setting.

Some things I like about the new V3 watch
Much better battery life
Color
See in bright sun
Doesn't cause me to sweat as much
Sleeker looking
All Black design with no other color (old watch had a red border around it)
Charges WAY faster

Some things I don't like about the new watch
Proprietary charging cable
Smaller watch (this is opposite of most, I LIKE bigger watches)
Buttons, I really liked the old rounded buttons and they FELT better. They were metal (or metal feeling) the new ones are plastic
Feels flimsy (again I like the bigger watch)
Less accurate so far after 1 round
Middle yardage number is bigger and in the middle of the watch face
Have to pair it with your phone to sync rounds
GPS takes way longer to get started

Things I like about the V2 watch better
It's bigger (I like that)
Buttons are more solid
Syncs with dashboard on my computer, I much rather not pair it with my phone..
More buttons on the watch for functions

Hope that helps some people.. I don't think the there is any added functionality right now (if we had L5 sats then maybe it would be more accurate, but we don't) It's just the watch is smaller and lasts longer.. so not sure I really needed the new version.

Hi guys, 

 

I currently have a garmin VA4 which is so frustrating to use for golf so it is being returned. The 3 pack of Ct10 sensors i also purchased with it are equally as useless and being returned. 

 

I am looking at the shotscope V3 as it looks to be built by golfers for golfers  and would really appreciate if anyone could answer a few questions please?

 

  1. Can you see your score half way through the round or the previous hole scores on the watch?
  2. Do you get your score at the end of the round?
  3. Does it detect every shot and if not can you quickly add other strokes on once you are at the pin collect stage for example lost balls +2 etc

Bit worried the watch would become a distraction and i would be worried it is not detecting strokes and my score will not be accurate? See a lot of people talking about post editing on V2 which  sounds frustrating as i would not remember the scores and strokes on every hole to check / verify it is correct..

 

Ultimately trying to make sure i do not buy something which will not live up to my expectations of a fully automated system apart from manually adding penalty strokes which i assume you press a button for when needed?

No
No
No

The only way to possibly do any of those is to run and sync the app during the round and I don't know if that would work anyway. I have found the V3, like the V2, will miss a couple of strokes per round even though I do my practice swings, and more than they recommend. I use The Grint app to put in my score as a backup, that way, after the round when I edit, I can be as accurate as possible for the stats.

I know it's not what you want to hear, but I don't believe any of the tag GPS systems are 1000% accurate and they all have to have some kind of post round editing.

Kind of makes it feel pointless if it can not guarantee every stroke as that is the point in golf at the end of the day 

Appreciate the answers though , back to the drawing board

1. No 

2. On the dashboard you can see your score once it's been synced.

3. I've had rounds where 100% shots are detected and rounds where 1-5 shots were missed. You can penalty while playing, but you won't know whether a shot was missed.

I also write down score on paper to cross check after the round.

Setup was pretty straightforward, FW update was quick and didn't hang.

Bluetooth connection also worked without issues.

Still have to get couple more rounds under the belt to decide whether keep or flip.

Any idea what causes the shots not to track is it something which can be avoided? 

 

If you are going in afterwards to add the shots on is it going to knock out the approach shot stats etc?

I'm guessing the practice swing not properly waking up the sensor. Not really sure how the algorithm works.

The stats are based on your signed off card, so I'm guessing if you edit and add the penalities or missing shows and then sign off, all of it will be included in the stats.

I'm getting a driver fitting tomorrow and will play on Sunday. I'll try to check it for you.

Did anyone fiddle with the GPS and RFID settings? Wonder how it affects accuracy and battery life.

How do people find the automatic putting tracking compared to manual?

If I am standing still on the green for 20 seconds not near my ball waiting for playing partners to take chips or putts is it going to think I took a putt from that location in automatic putt mode?
 

What do you guys have your putt modes set to automatic or manual and why?

 

Had a look though manual but could not see anything on this

Don't think so, unless you are swinging your putter.
