    If the factory reset did not help you can try to let the battery completely drain out and then charge it and see if that helps but it is likely the display has failed. Since TT does not offer a repair service and that product was discontinued years ago (TT Sports went out of business almost 4 years ago) there really is not much else to do. Unlike the battery, the screen is not a replaceable part.

    My Golfer2 watch is not lasting a complete round following an overnight charge, can anyone help?

    It could be the battery is depleted but it also may be the dock. If it charges when plugged in but dies as soon as it is unplugged it is a depleted battery (when plugged in it is not using the battery and the battery is not actually taking a charge, but as soon as you unplug it, it switched to the dead battery). If it does not charge even when plugged in, it may be the dock. Check if there is there any damage to the pins in the charger or the contacts on the watch. If any of the pins are bent or deformed straighten them out with a pin and make sure the contacts on the back of the watch are free of tarnish or grime. You can replace the battery yourself, TT does not do it, you will need to Google instructions, get special tools, figure out what battery you need, purchase it, install it, etc. Since TT Sports went out of business and discontinued the watch over 4 years ago, you may want to consider a new watch with a more updated feature set and active support.
