May as well kick this thread off...

I've been using an S60 watch for about 2 1/2 years, and added a full set of CT10 sensors earlier this year.

No major problems so far, apart from 'user error'.  Quite a few short chips and occasional 'tap in' putts not detected, but I gather that is a pretty universal issue with club sensors generally.

I did have a case where the watch battery went from 100% to dead over the space of a few hours, but a simple re-start fixed it.

What I think is needed are...

A 'Pin Tag' function to register the hole position.  

A way to indicate 'tap out' shots etc in the app, that ignores them for distance average calculations.

Increased 'sensitivity' for shots within say 5 or 10 yards of the green, to pick up the delicate chips.  The putter sensor does it, so why not have it 'kick in' automatcally on other clubs when close to the green?

A manual 'shot input' on the watch would be nice too, but that does sort of 'step on the toes' of the sensors a bit so I can't see that hapoening

I've been using the Vivoactive 4 for a couple years now. Works great as a golf watch alongside being my everyday watch. It would be nice to not have to download new courses from my phone beforehand though.. I guess I will have to upgrade to the Approach S62 at some point!

I've been using the Vovoactive HR since it came out. Most of the time it works great, but this summer it's been having trouble transferring the course data from my phone. It'll just stop and say the transfer failed. Usually deleting the course from the app and re-downloading it will fix the issue, but it's a pain to do when you're 10 yards away from your ball on the second shot of the day... 😅

I have the Fenix 5 and I will concur it works great and over a 4+ hour round of golf maybe uses 20-25% of the battery, not bad for GPS being on the entire time.  i have run in to similar issues with downloading courses and transfering data from my phone.   For me I usually need to restart my watch then for whatever reason when it connects and syncs it will get the course I need.   I can force sync as much as i want but it only works when I reset the watch. 

 

If i had one complaint it would be that it misses shots when I go into the golf app on my phone to review my round.  its not too big a deal as I can typically recall what I did on that particular hole and manually input it.  Granted, there are better options out there to do this (Arccos), but it one item that I think could be maybe be addressed with a software update.

Overall are you happy with CT10 sensors?   Obviously they pair nicely with your S60, but I was curious if you know anyone that uses arccos and have compared?  Been looking to get some club sensors and I bounce back and forth.

Yes I am happy with them. They perform as I expected they would.  I don't set the pin positions etc so don't get optimum putting data, but that is my fault.

I had a single Arccos sensor that came with my Cobra driver (3 years ago now), and it just drained my phone battery far too quickly as the app needed to be running all the time.  Beyond that I have no experience of anything other than CT10, dedicated phone apps, and the Tom Tom I used before I got my S60.

I got an S62 for my birthday this year.  I never thought I would wear a watch playing golf, but I've gotten used to it.  

What I like is that I can play 4-5 rounds without recharging it.  I ran an update a couple of weeks ago, and it went smoothly.

I haven't tried the sensors yet; I'm not sure I could handle that much data.

The S60 is nowhere near that good on battery life, maybe good for two rounds on the same day, but I wouldn't want to rely on it.

I thought about the S60 since it was cheaper, but the longer battery life changed my mind.  I wonder what the sensors would do to battery life??

I would say the S62 was probably a better purchase, especially if you use it as your normal watch as I do.  If you only use it for golf then (depending on price difference) probably still better, but by a lesser margin.

 In my experience the sensors make no noticeable difference to watch battery life.  The sensors have their own replaceable batteries, that they claim can last upto 4 years iirc.
