The app used to be free until september 2020. So If you used the app fore that, you actually didn't pay.

After each new install you have to register your device. Your code can be found under "Scores & Shots" or in the settings page of the app on your phone.

Another method is to start the app on your watch, wait until the WWW goes green, then on your phone navigate to the registration page. If you are already on the registration page, just refresh the page. You can also use another device to refresh the page on as long as it is in the same WiFi network.

First of all, check if your course exist at Fitbitgolf.com/?p=list If it really does not exists, please fill in the form below. Please specify the Name of the course, the address, number of holes.

The app uploads your scores and shots inmediately after entering them. The files are sent to the phone and then uploaded to my database. If there is no phone connection, the files will be sent when the phone connection is restored. If there is no internet, I try to upload them again on each new shot/score or when the app starts.

Also, when you reinstalled the app, the scores are uploaded under a new user account. You can merge these accounts by clicking on Add watch under Account
