Golf Pad GPS + Smartwatch

Golf Pad GPS + Smartwatch

A common question golfers ask is “What kind of smartwatch should I use with Golf Pad GPS?”

Golf Pad GPS, a golf rangefinder and scoring app, is compatible with more watches than any golf tracking app on the market today. This means golfers have a lot of options when choosing the best smartwatch.


3 factors to consider when deciding which smartwatch to use with Golf Pad GPS:


  • Cost - be realistic with your budget. Yes, it’s nice to look at the latest models, but if you’ll only be using the watch on the golf course, it may be better to save the cash for more golf balls instead. You can buy at watch for under $40 and get great performance with Golf Pad GPS.


  • Appearance - Smartwatches have become more refined looking in recent years. They are lower profile with discrete bands and watch faces that look like actual wrist watches. You’ll  spend a couple hundred to as much as a couple thousand dollars on these more modern watches. If looks aren’t important to you, an older model will save you a lot of money.


  • Features - The models listed below all work seamlessly with the Golf Pad GPS app. If you want to use your watch for other features, like music, measuring work-outs, or staying in touch with friends on social media, you’ll want to consider all the features offered. Many watches have lots of stand-alone features. Others require the use of applications.


Current compatible smartwatch models include:

Samsung Gear (including Gear Fit2)

Android Wear Including:

Update July, 2018: Pebble and Magellan Echo are also compatible with Golf Pad, however they've been discontinued and are currently in maintenance mode with the manufacturers. As a result, Golf Pad compatibility may not continue to be supported.

Apple Watch (including Series 2)

If you are considering a smartwatch and aren’t sure if your model will work with Golf Pad GPS, please contact us. We’ll verify compatibility for you.

Golf Pad LINK Launch

Kirkland, Washington: Golf Pad, Inc. has launched a Kickstarter campaign for it’s latest product, Golf Pad LINK. Golf Pad LINK is an automatic, real-time golf game tracking system for iPhone and Android users. Golfers play while LINK instantly records the distance of every shot and provides real-time game insight. Golfers can view results on a phone, online or on a smartwatch.

iPhone and Android

If you own an Android, you’ve likely been using the NFC reader in your phone for many apps. Apple, however, has kept NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay for iPhone users.

This has posed a challenge for golfers who want to use the technology to track their golf score, distances and stats. Golf Pad LINK overcomes this challenge with a built in location sensor.

Android and Apple users will appreciate the advantage of tracking their game without carrying their phone. This means no phone battery drain, no awkward phone in the pocket. A wireless reader tracks and records the golfer’s statistics. It automatically syncs the data when the phone is in range. Users can share results in real-time with friends and see how they compare to other players.


“Until now, our top-rated Golf Pad TAGS could only be used with Android,” observed Golf Pad CEO, Konstantin Roslyakov. “Golfers love the game insights and wanted iPhone support too. Golf Pad LINK addresses that.”


A Real Game Changer

The reader is designed to fit into a pocket. It’s thinner and more discreet than other game tracking devices. It also includes a removable clip if golfers prefer to wear it on a belt. Another advantage is the rechargeable battery, which lasts for two rounds of golf.

Golf Pad LINK sets the bar high when it comes to accuracy. It uses both GPS and GLONASS satellite tracking. This means faster and more accurate distances. Other game tracking systems only use GPS.

Golf Pad LINK comes with a wireless reader, 15 ultra-lightweight tags (one for each club) and the Golf Pad GPS application. The popular app has earned the highest rating in the sports category with nearly eleven thousand online reviews. It’s been downloaded over 1.3 million times and used to record over 3.7 million rounds of golf. Founded in 2011, Golf Pad is the only golf tracking system manufacturer named a Top Developer by Google.


The system retails for $229.00. Golf Pad is offering significant discounts for a limited number of early backers on their Kickstarter campaign, located here.


Win A Set Of Kirkland Signature Golf Balls

Win A Set Of Kirkland Signature Golf Balls

At Golf Pad, We Have The Elusive Golf Balls

We want to share! All customers who upgrade to Golf Pad Premium ($19.99 for one year) from today, 1/17/2017 through 2/17/2017, will have a chance to win a free set of Kirkland Signature balls. We'll choose the winner on 2/18/2017. You can upgrade from our free Golf Pad GPS application or buy an eGift certificate online. The eGift certificate can be redeemed anytime.

Keeping An Eye On The Balls

As you've probably heard, Costco launched their own brand of golf balls in 2016. They quickly sold out in many Costco stores. These balls are being compared to Titleist Pro-V1. In some cases, even being touted as better than the top of the line Pro-V1. They are being sold on popular auction and retail sites for up to four times more than retail price.

Today, Tony Covey with stated he heard from an inside source that Costco has suspended production of the Kirkland Signature golf balls until further notice.

Golfers on several popular forums are speculating on whether or not they'll be back. Some are speculating that Costco was coerced into quitting the golf ball business by other big golf ball manufacturers. 

Everyone seems to agree they were a great value while they lasted. Some may even be willing to pay top dollar on sites that have doubled or tripled the price. We prefer to give them away while we can!

Helping Young Golfers

Helping Young Golfers

Last month, The First Tee of Greater Seattle hosted their annual Fall Championship and fundraising event. The mission of The First Tee is  " impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf." 


Golf Pad, based in Kirkland, Washington donated nearly thirty units of the popular Golf Pad TAGS. The game tracking system golfers use to automatically track, analyze and improve their golf game in real-time. It's loved by golfers of all ages and skill levels.


"We proudly gave 12 of them as prizes during this past weekend’s Fall Championship. We saved them for the oldest divisions, many players in which are either playing high school golf or aspiring to in the near future, and represent the Eagle and Ace divisions of The First Tee. They are our most exemplary students in terms of golf and life skills and have been with the chapter for 2+ years, and most for 5 or more years. They were really excited and appreciative," writes Evan Johnsen, Program Director for The First Tee of Greater Seattle. 


Organizations like The First Tee are bringing golf to young players. It's an important mission for the benefit of these students and the future of the sport. Golf Pad is proud to help support their goals. Technology is second nature for most students in this age group. Golf Pad saw the donation as a natural fit.


"Thank you so much for the really cool [Golf Pad TAGS] you gave out yesterday at the week 9! This is a really cool prize and something I will use often. I’m thinking about it right now as I already got to use it today when I was playing a quick 9 at Willows."  -Alex, a First Tee student


The First Tee of Greater Seattle has opportunities for coaching and other volunteers. Donations of used equipment are always welcome.

8 Things Galaxy Note 7 Owners Need To Know

8 Things Galaxy Note 7 Owners Need To Know

Golf Pad GPS and Switching Phones

Did your phone end up on the recall list for the Galaxy Note 7? Getting a new phone is usually exciting, not so much when it's unexpected though. 

Many golfers who use the free Golf Pad GPS app for shot tracking, score keeping and as a GPS rangefinder, have questions about switching to a new phone. 

The 8 most important things golfers need to know:

  • If you switch to iPhone from Android, the Golf Pad GPS app will still work. It's compatible with Android and Apple devices.



  • Have a Golf Pad account created before switching phones. This will ensure your golf game playing history transfers to the new phone. You can use your email address or social media to create the account. 




  • Open the app and log in to your account, using the settings icon.  That will bring your history over to the new device. You may need to start a round before your history populates. 



  • The Galaxy Note 7 recall is serious! Don't risk it for the sake of brand loyalty. Get your phone replaced!
