What does the factory reset do on my Golfer watch?

Click here to see which products/categories this applies to.

When you click FACTORY RESET in TomTom Sports Connect, all personal data and settings on your TomTom Golfer GPS watch are deleted. This includes the global golf courses. This action cannot be undone.

You should only use the factory reset as a last resort to restore your watch or if you are intending to remove your data and settings.

A factory reset reinstalls the software on your watch. This removes the following:

  • Your settings on the watch
  • Your settings for TomTom Sports Connect
  • The global golf courses

Important: When you perform a factory reset, do not disconnect your watch before TomTom Sports Connect has finished restoring your watch. Installing the software on your watch takes several minutes. You then need to setup your watch in TomTom Sports Connect before you can install the golf courses again.

Check any messages shown in TomTom Sports Connect and on your watch before you disconnect your watch.
