1.0 Charging Your SkyCaddie® WATCH
Please fully charge your WATCH before first use. The length of time required to fully charge the battery varies and depends on actual usage.
1.1 How To Charge Using the Provided USB Cable
Note: Always make sure the charging contacts on your WATCH and
surrounding area are dry and clean of any dirt or debris to ensure proper electrical contact and to prevent corrosion.
1.Align the charging clip with the contacts on
the back of the WATCH
2. Connect the charging clip securely
3. Insert the USB plug into a USB port on your
computer or a SkyCaddie wall charger.
4. If connected correctly, “CHARGE” will display
5. When fully charged, FULL CHARGE will display
The length of time between recharging will significantly vary, depending
on whether a Mode requires GPS. Using a non-GPS feature, the WATCH
can last up to 8 months without recharging.
NOTE: It is recommended that the battery is recharged after every round
of golf or an odometer session, as these functions require GPS and deplete a battery charge at a much higher rate than non-GPS Modes. A full
charge should provide up to 8 hours of golf or odometer usage.
The Battery Level indicator displays on the upper right side of the
WATCH screen. If this indicator starts blinking, your battery is low and
needs to be fully charged as soon as possible. When the battery is low,
GOLF and ODOMETER Modes will not be available.

8.0 Acquiring Satellite Signals
For optimal performance while playing, ensure that the WATCH has a clear
view of the sky at all times. Avoid being around buildings, obstructions,
heavy foliage, low areas with adjacent obstructions, or reflective objects
(such as metal/glass structures) while using the
WATCH. While designed to be used and worn as a
normal watch, orienting the WATCH towards the sky
provides the best reception and accuracy. The internal antenna is located at the 6 o’clock position of the
WATCH. Allow the WATCH to have a few minutes to
acquire satellite signals before play.
ODOMETER Mode provides real-time data about your walk, run, or ride:
•Speed: How fast you are moving.
•Pace: The ratio of the number of minutes it takes you to cover a mile
or kilometer.
•Calories: How many calories you have burned so far.
•Distance: How far you have gone since you started.
•Duration: How much time has elapsed since you started.
In addition, your WATCH will log your GPS location every 5 seconds.
This real-time log can be saved to your WATCH at the end of your session. At any time, you can access previous saves by selecting SAVES
from the main menu.
Your WATCH can hold up to 20 Saves at one time depending on the
length of each session. If your WATCH is full, the oldest Save will be
removed automatically to make room.
