The new Motorola Golf Watch is jam-packed with features and we’re looking forward to seeing how users respond in our upcoming MOTOACTV Golf Watch Review. This latest entry into the GPS Golf Watch competition goes well beyond providing distances to the front, middle and back of the green, which is all that is offered on the very popular Garmin S1 Golf Watch.

Our only question… Is it too much? Simplicity may be the biggest contributing factor the high ratings of the Garmin S1. Often, the more features there are, the more problems to be had. We’ll let you know when the user reviews start coming in.

    I had Santa get me the watch and am glad I did as I would be really mad at myself to pay for this piece of s–t. Takes for ever to find a course if it does find it. this is my third year and lately I haven’t his a ball close than 800 yards to the pin. I only use this junk for golf so I don’t know how the other features work but if they work as well as the golf features then they don’t work at all. Any way many times I get no yardage at all, and then when I tap it to go to the next hole it is miles away. Some times I get it to work for the first nine holes and then it goes Democratic the back nine and stops working, If i knew three years ago what I know now about this gimic, I would not have asked Santa for this specific watch.
