My wtx watch takes...

My wtx watch takes about 3 or 4 holes at least to find a satellite and frequently loses reception. this happens both in my florida home and in my north Carolina summer home where it was purchased this summer. Its distances are very inaccurate by up to 20 yards I have had my 3 playing partners each with a different gps device showing similar distances and mine is off by large distances. Off course any receipt for this watch is in my summer home in Brevard nc if I still have it. I have an older watch/golfbuddy your basic model that bworks fine but only shows front middle and back. the strap broke but if I can not fix the new one I will move to anoyher brand. any suggestions.
