I like the app a lot. It only gives readings to the front, back, and middle of the green, as well as Par and Handicap. My only issue with the app is that it drains the battery. A fully charged LG Watch Sport will last about 4.5 hours running this app. When the battery gets under 15%, the GPS starts to not work and you have to tap the watch to wake it up to resync. I leave my watch face on all the time in the dim mode. I am sure if my watch was to go to sleep it would last a lot longer but then that is more time I would have wait for it to sync before selecting a club and hitting. I still recommend though.
The app crashed constantly on my new LG Urbane 2 Watch. It also had to be restarted at every shot. Have submitted a ticket, hopefully the programmers will fix the bug soon !
Works well. Turned my G Watch 2nd Edition into a basic golf gps. If you don't have the screen set to "always on" it takes it at least 15 seconds to catch up and give a proper reading though. Could use some kind of a warning to turn that feature of the watch on I guess? Adding bunker distances would make this the perfect smartwatch app for golf.
While it's nice to have the watch free of being tethered to a phone, for the additional cost and "advanced features", it crashed constantly on my new LG Watch Sport (not sure if it's the watch or app) and the app had to be restarted at nearly every shot, which drained the battery completely before even finishing 9-holes. Likewise, the ability to enter your score isn't in the standalone app...overall, there's I'm sure there's a lot of potential upgrades coming, but I feel the app is a big disappointment over the old wear/phone version at this time.
It's good at giving the distances while untethered from my phone, but it did some combination of crashing my 360 Sport and draining most of the battery before I finished the front 9. I couldn't start the watch back up until I got home and put it in the charger. As a small feature request, could there just be a small clock readout somewhere on the screen? It's still a 'watch' and with my phone in my golf bag, I'd like to be able to check the time without having to exit the app.
Undoubtedly the best app for golf players. Super accurate. Super fast. Super easy. Highly recommend!
- Introducing Automatic Hole Change, which detects whenever you are moving to the next hole and automatically updates the selected hole. Turn this setting on/off from the settings menu during the round.

- Fixed a bug that killed the app when it went to background.
