After I made a nice tee shot, the Golf Navi app automatically calculated the estimated distance to the hole – just like a caddy.

I then checked the weather using the Gear S3’s barometer and found that the weather was set to take a change for the worse. Me and my friends decided to go back to the clubhouse and soon it began to rain.
