I own a watch 5 Pro...but not with the golf edition.

I have been looking into the use of the smartcaddie app... but I have yet to subscribe.

There are a number of reviews on the play store that also suffer similar issue to you with the use of smartcaddie.

I think you should consider raising a bug with the smartcaddie team if you see regular issues.

Personally I was considering to install and evaluate smartcaddie... but perhaps based upon the reviews from others I may look at other options.

I would be interested to hear any feedback from the use of smartcaddie... and how well it actually works with the watch 5 pro.

Kind regards

I had a reply from the guys who make the app and apparently they are working to get an update sorted to fix the bugs

Beyond annoying. I also have a special event coming up and can't use it?

Back to my Garmin, works perfect. No it can't answer calls, but gives me notifications, health tracking and can go 14 days without a charge. You listening Samsung? This app just lost a watch 6 customer and probably alot more more since I was only interested in it for golf and connection to my Samsung phone and blood pressure readings.... Oh wait, you advertised it to do that too but it still doesn't work in the US?

So it seems that the smartcaddie app is not working so well just now.   

I do believe that there is another app called 18birdies that has really good reviews on the store and with users.  It seems like the WearOS watch app is also a free subscription (sometimes that is a premium feature).   

There is also a subscription 'premium option' for various smart caddy features and additions... but not needed for standard use.

I have GPS built into my Motocaddy trolley, but i don't always take it out.  I  am tempted to give this free version a try.   If i do, I may make a number of comparisons for distance accuracy around my home course between my trolley and 18birdies app ... just to see how good the 18 birdies is.  

p.s. I have no association and I am not endorsing the app... just interested in the positive reviews and giving it a try.
