  • Best golf gps app

    I have been a long time user of TrackMyGolf. I normally never write reviews, but I love it so much that I want to write this. Part of the goal is to save you time evaluating. I have done extensive evaluation with the various golf apps out them, let me tell you, they cannot compare with this app. Just look at the UI, you can immediately tell it was designed with love, clean and beautiful homepage puts me in the mood of golfing every time I open the app. But, that it is not all, there are a lot of attentions to details. For example, in the watch app, when you input scores in the simple mode, you can tap on the watch to quickly increment or decrement scores. Or you can quickly input through predefined (par, birdie, eagle) input. Either way, I can be done inputting score within few seconds. In comparison, in some other apps, I have to turn the crown to select scores. The Apple Watch's crown is not the most friendly input method, it is not precise, I end up having to fiddle with it for quite some time, that just frustrates me, and you do not want that in your golf game. For those interested in stats, this app has tons of it too. In Pro mode, it auto tracks each of your golf swing. I am surprised no one has done it yet, it is such an innovative use of the Apple Watch. Trust me, get this app, it solves all your needs.
  • Best golf gps by a mile

    I am looking for a reason to buy an Apple Watch, and this app pushed me over the edge. I own a Garmin golf watch, but I only use it for golfing. Whenever I golf, I have to dig around to find the Garmin Watch, make sure it is charged, it is always a hassle. This app is the future, we just get an Apple Watch, use it for a variety of purposes, like notification, Apple Pay, and when I need to golf, I just start the TrackMyGolf app. This is the future, like iPhone did 10 years ago, one general purpose device (watch) and many different apps. Now, on to the review of this app. First, the Watch app. It is full of features. I think using the Watch sensors to detect your swing is so innovative, and it makes a lot of sense. If the Watch has enough sensors, it should auto record your game. I do not know why other apps do not do it, must be some hard technical challenge. Kudos to the TrackMyGolf team for solving it. On top of auto recording, the app also gives you swing analysis, which is very useful if I have time to review it on the course. I do wish the swing analysis results are saved, so that I can review it later when I have time, and possibly run correlation analysis on the data. Beyond theses, I also love the auto hole advancing feature, which is super convenient. If it makes a mistake, it also offers a quick way to go back. For the phone app, it is feature rich too. The one feature I use most often is hole fly over. On new courses I have not played, it gives me a quick overview, so I know where to go and I can plan my shots. I hesitate whether I should get a series 3 Watch because of this feature. The new Watch app would allow me to completely ditch my phone at home, but it is this feature that kept the phone on me. I guess if I play courses I know already, I should just use the Watch app. I have studied other golf gps apps, this one seems to be the only one that can be 100% independent of phone. I think smart watches is the best invention ever for the game of golf, nobody wants to carry a bulky item like a phone or a laser range finder. Garmin is one of those who realizes the potential early on, and their golf watch is super successful. Now Apple Watch is here, TrackMyGolf is the first to realize the potential to replace those specialized watches. Who has the wrist space to carry a watch for golf, another for notification? I love that I can now combine both in the same watch. Apple Watch is just getting better and better, the screen is getting brighter, the battery is lasting longer, the processor is getting faster, now I can carry those advancement to my golf watch, hooray! It is a long review, but if you do not have time, just simply remember to download it. You would not regret it. If you encounter any problem, just email support, they are super responsive. You cannot go wrong with this app. Updating on my reviews...., I am still using this app as my main golf gps app after so long. I did experiment with several other apps too, but I come to realize that none of them is as good as this app. Really like the convenience and thoughtfulness that went into this app when they designed it. I must say I may be stuck with it for a long time, in a good way. I am surprised that no competitors have come up with a similar technology yet, it must be hard tech. Kudos to the team for making this happen!

    I searched around for the best app that works with Apple Watch and I think this is it. Like everything except its a little weak on statistics, doesn’t calculate much even tho it has all the data. The worst thing is that it calculates average driving distance but includes your iron shots on par 3s. Completely worthless. And yes, I did the math to verify this assertion. Update: they fixed the error and notified me of it, great support from the developers! Thank you!

    Not clear at all how to add/edit shots. Following the instructions doesn’t really work. For example, if you choose Insert Shot After, it doesn’t. Great idea, just needs a lot of work.
  • Best Golf GPS App for Apple Watch by Far!!!

    By ZBGolfin
    This is easily the best GPS app for Apple Watch. You just open your phone when you get to the course and start your round, then open the app on your watch, and put your watch in airplane mode. And that’s it! Then you have accurate gps yardages from your wrist (Not your Iphone). I Love it! Honestly this app was a big factor when choosing to buy my Apple Watch. I would absolutely recommend this app to any golfer with an Apple Watch. The paid subscription is totally worth it, and it beats purchasing a range finder or expensive garmin golf watch.
  • Overall Good

    I think this app is good overall but it could be great. I have two specific issues. First of all the club customization that is used on my I Phone does is not synchronized with my Apple Watch. Makes no sense so know I can track my yardage correctly. If you play on a course that has 27 holes there is no way to show the two douses you play that day as a round. Again a common situation that should have an easy solution.
  • Hit or Miss on Apple Watch series 2

    This app is great when it works. I really only use it on my apple watch. Some rounds it’ll work perfect and some rounds it won’t at all. But when you’re out on the course you don’t want to have to troubleshoot and play around with something... you just want to focus on the round. 4 stars when it works flawlessly but 2 stars overall because when it only works 50% of the time you are out it’s a waste of time and a headache.
