After that I had to send back the clock because of a defective button, I got the new device a few days ago.
First, the clock needs to be charged, why you need a bit of flair, because the connection of the clock (a type of terminal that you must touch 4 contacts on the bottom of the clock) is a bit unusual. However, if the terminal is properly seated, the whole is stable. Charging takes at the first time about 4 hours. The charging cable has to power supply a USB connector, so you the clock even on a laptop can load the go.
Then I first carried out an update (free at Garmin). Apart from the registration with the Garmin-side that was absolutely no problem and simply. An error on the Garmin is that you can not find Approach S1-clock under the item entitled “Where is the serial number”. But the serial number is on the bottom of the clock, hard to miss. As data cable charging cable is subtracted from the power supply and connected to the computer. Has the advantage that you do not have so many different cables.
Now a few more settings: Time automatically (clock), the language can also be set up … (but I prefer English). Important: distance measurement (default is ‘yards’) on ‘metric’ adjust.
So then on the golf course! All seats are around me in the clock with it.
The clock automatically detects where I am and hits me after a new round start immediately the right golf course before. You just have to press OK and already is the clock ready.
Then you have not actually make. The clock automatically switches to the next tea on the next hole to and shows the distance to the green is always in great, even in bright sunlight highly readable numbers on. Of course, you can manually select the next or previous hole.
For the impact width measurement you have for my taste too much rumor on the clock, but also works very well. The odometer just runs in the background with (if you activate it) and you can quickly check later how far you really went.
All in all, one can only give 5 stars. The clock works great and fully automatically, is very easy to use, is stable and well made and also looks good.
That reminds me the information “distance to the green” is more than enough, I’m really excited about the clock. Highly Recommended!
