THE FIRST WAS THE BLACK ONE AND I LOVED IT. I HAD TO BUY A SECOND ONE FOR ENGLAND AS NOT LOADED WITH EUROPEAN GOLF COURSES.
I FOUND VERY EASY TO OPERATE, ALTHOUGH YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WHEN CHARGING THAT THE WATCH HAS TOTALLY SHUT DOWN AND THAT YOU ATTACH THE LITTLE PRONGS TO
THE CHARGER AND THEN MAKE SURE THE GARMIN NAME AND THE BATTERY SIGN COME UP BEFORE WALKING OFF. NO PROBLEM WHEN YOU DO THIS.
THE PROBLEM WITH THE NEW WHITE ONE, IT IS SLIGHTLY REDESIGNED. THE MENU BUTTON SITS FLUSH WITH THE WATCH AND THEREFORE MORE DIFFICULT TO OPERATE. ALTERNATIVELY, THE BLACK WATCH BUTTON STICKS UP A LITTLE, MAKING EASE OF OPERATION.
I AM RETURNING THE WHITE FOR A BLACK ONE, AS I SOLD MY BLACK TO A FRIEND.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE CONCEPT. JUST GET THE BLACK ONE.
