Checked during a round against a bushnell hand held an appeared very accurate. However, against another Garmin product there was 10 yard difference. Otherwise a very good all round golf and activity tracker, if I could wear when swimming it would be perfect.
The shot tracking facility is a nuisance. Great idea but is just too fiddly.
