  1. Not pretty! Bit long but honest. SkyCaddie LX5 – Official MGS Forum Review by Ballplayer002003 Intro I would first like to say THANK YOU to MyGolfSpy for giving me the opportunity to test out the SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch. I am humbled and honored to have been chosen as a 2020 tester. Thank you again! About me, that’s why you are here right?! I am an avid GPS watch wearer. Is that a word...wearer? Well, I wear GPS watches as my primary distance device. I bought the Garmin S20 a few years ago and that has been my go to for a while now. I also have a Bushnell ran
  2. Got my letter yesterday, at least it was predictable...no tickets. ugh. One day!
  3. Played another round today, the first picture shows the watch at 100% The second picture was taken after the round down to 52%. Not as bad as the other day but I don't know if I could squeeze two rounds out of this. Todays round was about 3.5 hours. I did have a lot of issues with it today though. The watch took a while to find my home course (I have the video of my cheap Garmin and this side by side finding the course). After the LX5 FINALLY found the course I had already shot the flag on my approach shot with my laser AND compared it to the Garmin yardage. Yes, it took that long to fi
  4. Maybe it's time to go work for the USGA? I would GLADLY move down to Pinehurst to do so. haha.
  5. I used it for all approach shots for distance to pin. I was not really using green feature, I just need the front middle and back numbers. There were a few holes where I wanted to see the hole layout or how far a bunker was from the tee, but that should all be light weight for this watch, in my opinion.
  6. Now that is impressive. Mine is nowhere near that unfortunately.
  7. I am glad to hear, maybe I just got a dud for a battery. I will try to play again this weekend to see.
  8. I played today, a very long round. The course was packed and there were no groups allowing anyone to play through. This was every bit of a 4-4.5 hour round. With that being said, the watch was at 100% when I started and as I was walking off of 18 green I was at 1%. Hole 17 I got the notice of low battery and to charge it. I have read from everyone else that they think the battery life is great; maybe I got a bad watch because I think the battery life is very short. I have to charge it every day, even when I am not playing. Are any of the other testers experiencing this problem? I did n
  9. That's great to hear. They are super forgiving and I would highly recommend them to anyone that wants a bit of forgiveness Enjoy them #gregh729
  10. maybe, but I would rather them work on that aspect. It's just a hassle the few times I actually hit finished and then having to go back in. Nothing that would deter me from buying the watch though.
  11. Exactly, I would suggest that they just eliminate that feature all together. It is not needed in my opinion.
  12. I played a few days ago at a course called Prospect Bay in Md. and the watch helped out a great bit. I like that I can see the hole layout and that I can move the target around. The more I use this the more I like it. However I have to say, I don't like when it asks you if you are finished a hole. Without thinking many times I will be walking off the green and it pops up and I instinctively hit finished and it jumps to the next hole. Now I have to go BACK and hit a few screens in order to enter my score. I wish I knew how to turn this feature off or to bypass it.
  13. The wait is ALWAYS the hardest part. Enjoy these irons, they look so good!
