Watch or no watch?


Recommended Posts

I’m a watch guy! I’ve had Omega, and Breitling in the past. Currently have a Rolex Submariner Date and an Apple Watch 5. I wear them both a lot, today I wore both at the same time! I’d rather look at my Sub for the time and use the Apple Watch for tracking everything and notifications when I don’t want or have my phone.

A throwback Friday thread! I have a new watch arriving on Monday (if FedEx behaves properly). It's a Fossil hybrid watch: it has real hands, but the face of the watch is also an e-ink display, so

I love watches and wear one daily. Only problem is my taste exceeds my budget; Mechanical watches aren’t cheap. Skeletons, open hearts, or clear back cases are great so you can see the inner working

This was actually a factor when I bought my Apple Watch.  I wanted to use Arccos without phone-in-pocket but didn't know if I could comfortably play with a watch on my wrist.  So, I wore a cheapo watc

Apple Watch is the way for me. Can keep my pockets uncluttered out on the course by putting away my phone, but still be connected as needed.

I really like nice watches but ever since I got my fitbit that's about the only watch I ever wear. So much more functional than a nice automatic on the wrist. So I am a watch guy on the course but it's a fitbit...

I used to wear watches all the time but got away from wearing them once the phone became an all in one device.  After testing the skycaddie LX-5, I forgot how much I miss actually wearing a watch!  Might have to dig out the Tissot I got in Sin Maarten on an anniversary trip..will most likely need a new battery.

What App do you use? Or do you use one? I have had a few apps that I tried but always go back to Golfshot, it seems to have the most reliable GPS data for a majority of courses I play.

I used to wear my Apple Watch on the course. Great for collecting data. But I’ve gone away from it. I don’t need the distraction of the every day world at my finger tips in addition to trying to save all the swing speed I can. I think their is a study that shows at least 1 mph loss for a watch

I will wear my Garmin Fenix 5S while mountain biking, working out and now while out on the range. I think the various golf apps are pretty useful. I sync up my watch to Strava. It does feel awkward in the beginning, but I'm pretty used to it now.

I used to take my watch off when golfing 🏌️♀️ until I got a smart watch. Now I have progressed to the Shot Scope watch and wear it every round.

I’m a watch guy. The only time I don’t wear one is in the shower and when I’m sleeping. I have a variety of auto and mechanical watches and a Garmin I wear when I golf.

I wear an Apple Watch everyday on the golf course or just at work/home. It is awesome on the golf course because apps like The Grint sync up to it and you can count your strokes and see the distance to the hole from your location right on your wrist. Big fan of it.

Apple watch everyday, but not on the course.  I'm open to trying it though, with The Grint or something similar, just haven't done so to date.

I feel naked without a watch. I'm used to the weight and hate forgetting to put one on.

Day to day is a cheap G Shock, weekends is a Tag Aquaracer and special occasions is the Omega DeVille handed down from my great uncle. 

Interesting fact, the Omega was made in the same month & year I was born (according to the serial number) 🙂

I used to wear my Apple Watch on the course until I saw a study reference the loss of at least 1mph swing speed wearing a watch. Not that I am good enough, but I will give myself every advantage I can. Plus I enjoy being able to kind of shut off social media and everything that comes with the watch/phone combo
