When I open the smartphone app on my iPhone, it’s completely dark and nothing shows up.

The picture above shows the screen that appears when you first start the golf score counter (if the dark mode of iOS is turned on, the screen is completely dark; if the dark mode is turned off, the screen is completely white). After launching the Golf Score Counter app, this app will start recording with the Apple Watch -> finish recording -> edit the golf course name and set the par. (There is currently no function to select the golf course name first, it is currently under development.) From this state, you can display your score in the following way.

Step 1: Launch the Golf Score Counter on your Apple Watch and press Select Hole.

If the Apple Watch is connected to the iPhone via bluetooth, the score will be reflected in real time as soon as it counts up. If your Apple Watch is properly connected to your iPhone via bluetooth, your score will be reflected in real time as soon as it counts up. If it is not reflected in real time, your score will be reflected on your iPhone when you switch holes (swipe your Apple Watch to the right). This method of reflecting the score can also be changed from the settings screen that can be displayed by swiping right when you are on the first hole selection screen.

If you operate the golf score counter on the day of a golf competition, it may affect your play.

I would like to know the minimum specs for an Apple Watch that allows me to check the distance on my phone.

First, to record your location in the golf score counter app, please click here. This app has been tested on Apple Watch Series 4 and Apple Watch Series 6. On the other hand, we have not tested it on Series 3. Therefore, if you have purchased the Golf Score Counter app, you may want to first test how long it lasts in advance by using the location recording function in your daily life before you do it on the golf course.
However, there is a possibility that the battery in the Series 3 may not last the entire 18 holes.
According to this page, the outdoor workout time for the series3 using GPS is up to 5 hours, and since the battery degrades over time, it may not be exactly the same.

If you haven’t purchased the Golfscore Counter app yet, please contact us. We can provide you with a trial version.

I would like to be able to record the number of shots of other players during a round.

Sorry, this feature is not yet available. This feature is not yet available at this time. On the other hand, we are currently looking into ways to develop it so that we can introduce it in the future. We are still in the conceptual stage, but we are thinking of a way to keep a record of the icons (information) that you have prepared in advance on your iPhone, and by tapping them on your Apple Watch, you can tag them to the course. By doing this, it will be possible to express information such as what driver was used to hit the ball. Thank you for your patience.

I played a round of golf using the golf score counter after fully charging my Apple Watch, but after the last two holes, the battery went below 10%, and then it stopped displaying and I couldn’t record until the end.

We believe that the following measures will help to reduce the battery drain a little.

  1. change the timing of the iOS reflection to not real-time reflection.
  2. Press the pause button during breaks to reduce battery consumption.

In addition, we will continue to make improvements that will help conserve battery power.
Please wait for a while.

I would like to cancel the app.

This app is basically a buy-only app, so there is no concept of cancellation. If you would like to request a refund for the app, due to Apple’s specifications, the app developer will not be able to do so. If you would like to refund the app, please follow the instructions from this link. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
