Continuing from the previous article, I will introduce some of the issues you may be interested in when using the Apple Watch for golf: the difference between the GPS and cellular models of the Apple Watch and whether the Apple Watch can withstand the impact of golf.
Differences between the GPS and GPS Celluler models of the Apple Watch
There are two types of Apple Watch models: the GPS model and the GPS Celluler model. Both models can receive incoming calls, emails, and notifications from your iPhone, and the built-in GPS allows you to track the distance and pace of your workout, such as running. However, with the GPS model, you need to connect your iPhone to the Apple Watch via bluetooth or Wi-Fi in order to receive notifications to your iPhone. With the GPS Celluler model, you can receive notifications even when you don’t have your iPhone with you.
Even if you don’t carry your smartphone with you when you play golf, the GPS Celluler model may be easy to use. But be careful, you might get a call in the middle of your swing!
Can the Apple Watch withstand the impact of golf?
The Apple Watch is the wristwatch version of a smartphone, and even if you want to use it for golf, you may wonder if it can withstand the impact of golf because it is not made for golf. It is true that the Apple Watch may not necessarily be unaffected by the vibrations of movement and impact during golf. However, unless there are special circumstances, such as a direct hit by a flying ball or dropping the Apple Watch when you take it off your wrist, there have been no reports of problems caused by golf impacts during normal play.
Speaking of the Apple Watch and golf, the golf score counter
Now, the golf score counter makes full use of the Apple Watch’s performance that I’ve introduced so far. This is an excellent product that not only tracks your score, but also your playing status using GPS. You can download it from the following link, so please try it out.
