Have purchased a Garmin S2 watch to check distances on the golf course. Have charged watch and it tells accurate time. I have selected a password: Lacrosse19.
What do I do next to register watch, or gain appropriate data on golf courses??

Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry to hear of the issue you are having with your device.
May I ask if you have taken the unit OUTSIDE yet, turned it ON (golf mode) and attempted to find golf courses - in your area?
I only ask because this unit comes with MANY courses already loaded, and does not really need to be "registered" to operate with those preloaded courses.
Thanks

Hi again,
OK - let me start by giving you a link to the electronic (PDF) version of the unit manual. This should be the same as the manual you received with the unit, but could be a little different (and is much more "handy" - in my opinion).

While you are taking a quick look at the manual, I will see if I can find a quick video or two - to show how to get started.
Thanks

Can I try to continue the on-line conversation?? How to go to golf mode??

Hi again,
Did you receive my last message, and the link to the manual?
The steps to "play golf" with the unit are on page 1 of that manual.
I'm still looking for a video that shows this operation.
Thanks

Hi again,
OK - I didn't find a specific video for the S2, but I did find one for that compares the S1 & S3 units. From what I can tell, the S2 is more like the S1, in that you have to press "buttons" on the unit - instead of having a touch screen. But the functions are pretty much the same.

Please take a look and go to the "Start Round" screen, and see if any courses close to you appear on the screen list.
Thanks, ***** *****
