If it came with a wall charger and displayed hazards it would be a better buy. $249 is too much to pay for its limited utility. Would be useless without a computer (USB port) to charge it. Garmin later provided a free wall charger, but I had to call and complain to get it. Wish I had bought the S3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PJ Garmin GS2 useful golf device
The Garmin GS2 is a great device for knowing distances to the pins placement, keeping score, knowing lay-up and dog leg shots is a useful addition from the GS1. I prefer the white font on the outside of the GS1 device over the red font on the outside of the GS2 device but that is only a cosmetic detail that doesn't impact my decision to purchase the device. I like the new ease of the up and down selection arrows and menu options once the course is selected. After I selected a course and then turned the device off to save the battery for a few minutes and later turned the device back on I was please to see it brought up the course I had selected rather than having me start over with the start round menu; great feature. Easy to figure out. Love the fact that it is worn on the wrist and not one that is carried in pocket or hand which make it less likely to loose on the golf course.

Not as accurate as my SkyCaddie, but more convenient. I got tired of subscribing and downloading, so I bought the S2 with its pre-loaded courses. Based on the USGA sprinkler head yardages, distances on the S2 (front, middle, back) are off by 2 to 5 yards. Lay-up distances seemed suspect. Distances from the tee to significant hazards were missing. It was helpful to have the unit on my wrist on cart-path-only holes because I didn't have to worry with a hand-held unit as well as my clubs. And, with the S2, I am not likely to leave it in the cart. The S2 battery lasted a full 18 holes and then some. The SkyCaddie definitely has more accurate and useful information and is good for an unfamiliar course---if you have the opportunity to get on a computer and download. S2 can't be beat for ease of use.

A golf course with several starting points seems to cause some confusion for the Garmin but one with several separate courses works just great.

I like the watch a lot. I like the idea that you carry it on your wrist. I have to remember that I should charge it before I play.
