Measuring a Shot with the Garmin AutoShot Feature

Your vívoactive device features automatic shot detection and recording. Each time you take a shot along the fairway, the device records your shot distance so you can view it later (Viewing Your Shot History).

TIP: Automatic shot detection works best when you wear the device on your leading wrist and make good contact with the ball. Putts are not detected.

  1. Begin playing a round.

    When the device detects a shot, your distance from the shot location appears in the banner at the top of the screen.

    TIP: You can tap the banner to hide it for 10 seconds.

  2. Walk or drive to your ball.
  3. Hit your next shot.

    The device records the distance of your last shot.
