Well, it's official, my Live device is no longer a viable option for me as it quits working midway through the round.  I emailed support but they haven't really addressed my issue.  I tried tagging in my phone but i found that really cumbersome to go before each shot.  I still have the classic device somewhere around here so may give that a shot again.

Is the battery just shot?

That's my presumption.

Fairly simple to replace. I will be replacing my second battery pretty soon here. It's puffed and won't hold a charge anymore.

Oh, it can be replaced?  Is there a tutorial somewhere that shows how to do it?

If you have the Live unit with the flat style belt clip, two of the screws will be partially covered so you may have to remove it to get at them. You will have to slide something thin like a tiny flat head screwdriver in between the clip and the body to pry up and release the tab that prevents the clip from sliding off the body.

I like how the author wrote if you don’t know how to solder, you can ruin your device, as if it wasn’t already a shitty paperweight at that point.

It’s not though. It’s just a bad battery; it’ll work once you replace the battery. Far from a paperweight. If you mess it up, so that it won’t work even if you put in a new battery, then you have a paperweight. 😀

Semantics. If you have a dead battery and you don’t know how to replace it or know anyone who does, you effectively have a dead unit.

It’s not. The underlined part is what the author said. The bolder part is what you added. I guess the author assumes that if you don’t know how to do it, then you won’t be stupid by trying to do it and will find someone who can. Like take it to, I dunno, a store, that offers such services.

So, I'm confused, do you need a soldering iron?

My last 2 rounds on “Classic” did not upload correctly.  I sent a msg via the “Chat” and have instructions on what to do.  Hoping it works.  Positive is I messaged them on Sunday and had a response Monday morning.  I will report if it works once I do my part of the follow-up.

I can’t blame them if they’re not supporting Classic.

I understand as well but them seem to imply it should be working.  I am pleased they are responding.

    • Day 160: Played 18 this morning. Driver setup changes made a big difference in performance with that club, but still need to work on the dynamic portion of the change. Scored well, and I think it is a testament to the work I've been doing on mechanical change, and also helped by having a consistent pre-shot routine to commit and execute the swings. Didn't have any amazing shots, but really limited mistakes today.
    • Day 609: Practiced for about 20 minutes today focusing on the hands, same as yesterday. Didn’t film because it was too hot and sunny.
    • Day 240 - Putting work today. Started with Day 11 "Putting Pendulum" drill (about 10 minutes) them hit 25 putts down a 3' line on my PuttOUT matt. 
    • Three months in, so time for an update. When I wrote these goals, I anticipated that I would be playing from the white tees, but have subsequently moved up to the gold (senior) tees as my average drive is 175-180 (long around 195). The Good:  I am tracking results using a Shot Scope V3, which for shots gained comparison purposes I use a 15 Hcp (my index is currently 22.8) and as of Friday night's round, my most recent 5 rounds indicated 4.44 shots lost to a 15, down from 5.93 shots lost for the first 5 rounds, for an improvement of 1.49 shots. I am now hitting 4-5 greens per 18 and while moving up tees has clearly helped, the quality of my approach shots from 100-160 yards has clearly improved as well.  Additionally, I am hitting  wedges and short irons with much better distance control than how I ended last season and chipping better as well. I remain distance challenged with my tee shots (hence the move up) but get FIR 50% of the time, with misses generally in pretty good shape. The Bad:  Putting is actually worse than last season as I'm now averaging 34.4 putts/18 and about 8 holes per 3 putt. My assessment of my problems is that while "Bead" is pretty good, "Read" is only OK (I read the direction of the break correctly, not the amount) and "Speed" is poor.  Will be focusing on drills to improve "Speed" first and then "Read". Scoring goals: Since moving up tees, I now typically shoot 86-88 so new scoring goal is 82-84 and to break 80. 
    • Meh. 44-49 for 93 at The Neuse yesterday. My third straight round where I’ve had to fight to put up a decent number. I was able to stay around bogey golf until 18 when, for the third time that day, I put a ball OB off the tee and made triple. Not much else to say apart from that except for the fact that I got up and down for par on the par-3 7th after an awful tee shot.  My plan is to hit the range tomorrow and prepare for Tuesday, when I’m playing with my boss and another coworker.
