Love this app. I'm now using it on a Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and it works great. The distance updates in an acceptable time and an 18 hole round uses 10-15% battery. There are a few minor changes I'd like (1) ability to switch between watch & phone GPS without starting a round (2) ability to check current score, maybe an option in the settings menu (3) ability to delete courses I've downloaded. The course I play the most is usually the one that gets removed when more space is needed.

Inputting scores is a horrible experience. I signed up for the trial and the watch app gave no options to enter strokes. Being able to use my watch was my primary use case. So, I used my phone. First, needing to take my phone out for every hit was a distraction and a pain. First unlock, then there was the prompt asking if I wanted to switch to GPS only mode (every single time). Keeping track of putts kept switching to a club recommendation despite standing on the green. The app lasted 5 holes.

Hello, Bryan. We're sorry to hear you've had a disappointing experience with Hole19. Through the Premium trial, you should have had access to the Scoring on Watch feature. We're sorry this didn't work out for you. Please reach us at help@hole19golf.com, so we can help you with this. Best regards, Jorge R. - Team Hole19

I downloaded this app and did the free trial for the shot-by-shot mode. In principle, it's perfect. But it has issues. For some reason it would automatically record two puts when I hit the button, no option to change or input anything. Then when I would try to edit it, the app would crash. The app will also just randomly crash for no reason too. Very frustrating to use because of that. If that stuff was fixed, I would easily pay for this app. The data and insights you get are awesome.
