I’ve updated to the newest software but can’t find the golf app. What am I doing wrong?

    App missing from the watch or phone?

    If the watch, is it also missing when you go to "settings" then "Apps & Activities"?
    Does it show up in Garmin Express software when you have the watch connected to the computer (Connect IQ apps)?

    If you can't access or see it or add it through the Garmin Express software then you'll need to contact Garmin support. Not being able to add it is not unexpected since it's supposed to be a fixed app - but you can disable/enable the golf app via both the watch and the Garmin Express software. So I was hoping that maybe it might have been disabled.

    Can't say for sure but if missing the way you say, then 10-1 they'll have you do to a factory reset (and then have to go through the various updates again).

    Thanks, I'll give Garmin a call. Hope I don't have to do factory reset.
    I don't know how much I relied on the watch tiIl I was on the course past Sun without golf app. Shooting laser and carrying around laser is too cumbersome.

    I've done one before and it's a little bit of a pain but not really all that bad. Not nearly as bad as having to do a factory reset on your smart phone.

    Garmin had me do a factory reset. I lost all my settings, but golf app is back. Garmin should have some place to save all your settings in the future!
