Thanks for your reply. To elaborate I use the GPS on the watch to conserve the iPhone battery. What I don’t understand is why it only used 1% on Friday but 21% today with the same settings.
When I raise my wrist to look at the watch, the grint is nearly always open, when I used Golfshot it was always on the home screen with similar settings.
I had to keep pressing the button on the watch to get back to golfshot.
I’ve used Golfshot in the past. 18Birdies has a watch app that I used a couple times. GameGolf has one. There are others, I’m sure. I currently use the watch app for Arccos, because I use that tracking system.
Not sure about the “disappeared off the watch” problem. I don’t recall doing anything special for setup, but whenever I raise my wrist with a round going, it’s got my yardage right there (Arccos and Golfshot for sure, I think it did with GameGolf, don’t remember with 18Birdies). Maybe try (in the Apple Watch app on the iPhone): General > wake screen > wake on wrist raise (and) Return to clock after 1 hour.
I don’t know of a way to improve battery life in the watch, but I usually put my iPhone in low power mode when I play, and that helps prolong the iPhone battery without adversely affecting the golf app function. But using 21% of battery for a round doesn’t seem excessive (meaning you finished the round with 79% left).
Work, life & rereading some chapters 3 times slowed down my reading of LSW but I did finish it tonight. I think it merits more reads as the season progresses since some aspects can’t be practiced with snow on the ground. I need to work out my shot zones and need to figure out how to do that. I do not know a range where I can walk out to my target to plot them as suggested. I am wondering if it can be done with TrackMan Range? Or if a fellow Michigander can suggest a place it would be appreciated.
One thing caught me by surprise, I’ve read many comments about shot cones and expected to read about them in LSW, but I did not. I’ll look back on Threads to see where I saw that and what they are.
My main question is for myself, why did I wait nearly 9 months after joining TST to order the book.
