Recommended Posts

Jacustomgolf's Stage 1 is also up!

 

https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/19525-official-forum-member-review-sky-caddie-linx-gt-gps-watch-shot-tracking-system/?p=285876

 

I don't know about you guys, but I believe our group of testers are seriously killing it so far!

You're putting pressure on me, lol. Not sure I can live up to my stage 1.

We have all of our Stage 1's up!

 

Let's get some discussion going so our testers know what they should be answering their Stage 2 reviews!

 

My question is one that would be a make or break for me, how does it feel on the wrist and more importantly how does it interact with your glove?

For you Shawn, I wear a watch but don't golf with one, so I thought I may have had an issue with it. But, so far, despite it being the same size as a normal watch, I don't have any negative comments about it.

 

So far as interacting with a glove, I don't wear one, so I can't help you there.

I do not usually wear a glove so I cannot speak on that. The band is much thicker than the bushnell ion. I'll get some pictures up tomorrow. But it's still very comfortable

The watch doesn't interfere with my glove, but the watch band is thick. I've inquired about buying a different band: no luck. This is the only band they have. I wear an Apple Watch a lot and I'm used to that band which is light and somewhat sleek. This band is thicker and stiffer. The gaps between notches aren't great for my wrist, so I end-up having to wear it tighter than I'd like. I would LOVE to switch out the band!!!

I have had no luck syncing and getting stats or even a scorecard to edit. None of the shots have logged for me through 2 rounds.

 

My first round was 18 holes starting on #10. It gave me a 9 hole blank scorecard to edit and no locations of shots.

 

Second round was same thing. I'd edit the scorecard, get to #6 and it would wipe out holes 1-5...

 

Troubleshooting thoughts?

Just received mine today. Kind of a pain to have to download two apps (skygolf 360 and skycaddie mobile app) for it (which I didn't realize and had to call in for), but after a few hiccups, everything is loaded and ready to go. Wish I had it last week when I played 4 rounds!

 

Putting it on, it's a very comfortable watch, although a tad bulky. I'm used to wearing a Fitbit charge so it feels fairly normal to me.

 

A few things I'm wondering about...

 

1. How does it handle punch shots? I'm in the trees sometimes and have punch out so a 4 iron may only go 110 yards. Does this get factored in?

 

2. Choke down/half shots/green side bunker shots - these go shorter distances. How do they factor in? Do you just delete them?

 

3. Will it track average distance from the hole? This is an exciting thought for me if it does. I read that the difference between a Web.com and Pga Tour player is that the PGA guys hit it 2 ft closer to the pin on average. 1ee2ab16900fe467e91907c89afcaf21.jpgb33dc54e25dc476a1817f16afe90a3b5.jpge92f5353920ae807411f44074c638f19.jpg6c05f287c4bb4ade02be8bf4b19289a8.jpg

I'm really excited to hear more about these, I've been on the fence about game golf and arccos for awhile now....I don't like the "tagging" part of Game Golf and with Arccos you have to keep your phone on your person with the newest version to register shots and the older version requires your phone to be with you fit accurate GPS.

 

Does the watch have built in GPS or is it using the GPS of your phone like arccos?

You will definitely have to go into your round and delete shots if you record the 1/2 shots, etc

So it'll only record the shot if you tap it...but if you don't tap it, it won't count as a shot for scoring statistics...so there's no way to really get around it is there? I need to research it more. Seems like a great system, but lacking clear direction to begin using it.

I believe it's GPS on the actual wrist watch itself.

There is autoshot tracking. It just will track distance and not the actual club you hit. To get more exact stats you would need to tap it.

I have never worn a golf watch before and rarely wear a regular watch but I am pleasantly surprised with how the watch feels.  I don't mind it and have had success with the yardage numbers it gives, especially the number to the front and the back of the green which you don't always have a reference for.   I am struggling with the shot tracking.  IT is another process and adds another element to think about when some of us already need to get out of our own way!

      (4) TESTERS WANTED
       

       
      Shot Scope V2 GPS Watch with
      Automated Performance Tracking
       
       
      ​
      There are two clear leaders in the golf data tracking game. For those who don't mind carrying your phone with you during a round, ARCCOS is the clear market leader. For those who'd rather just play golf, the Scottish company Shot Scope is tracker of choice.
       
      And if you're a part of the second part, this review opportunity is for you!
       

       
      TESTERS WANTED:
       
      We're looking for four avid golfers to test, review and keep Shot Scope's new V2 GPS Watch with Automated Performance Tracking. Shot Scope's patented ClubSense technology automatically knows when you hit the ball and which club you used, and stores all that info for you. You don't have to tag or mess with your phone. You just play golf. 
       
      And with Shot Scope's new online Performance Package,  you can view your stats and decide which part of your game you'll brag on and which you'll keep to yourself.
       
      The good news is if you live and play golf anywhere on the planet Earth, you're eligible to apply!
       

       
      How To Apply:
       
      You forum vets know - and you new members need to know - how much work is involved in being a MyGolfSpy product tester. We'll expect you to dedicate a full two months to using Shot Scope on the course and learning how to use the data is provides, and you'll write a detailed, thorough and - most importantly - honest review for your fellow Forum members. 
       
      To do that, you'll first have to be a member in good standing of the MyGolfSpy Community Forum (click here if you need to sign up). Next, in this thread - and ONLY IN THIS THREAD - you'll need to tell us the following:
       
      First name
      Home State/Province/Country
      ​Do you use performance tracking?
      Do you use a GPS watch?
      Which ones?
       
      ​That's pretty much it. We'll be announcing the four testers next week in this thread, so make sure to check back. 
       
      Good luck!

      Looking for info/ reviews on the Bushness iON GPS watch.  Don't normally wear a watch, and usually use my pacecount (accurate after 30 years in the  Army) but am bidding on one for $100 dollars (used) and want to know if it is worth the $$.
       
      Thank you

      4 Testers Wanted!


       
      Precision Pro GPS Golf Band
       
       
      Riddle me this, Golfman:
       
      Who goes on your wrist, gives you yardage, tells time, but isn't a watch?
       
      It's the GPS Golf Band by Precision Pro.
       

      Testers Wanted 
      Precision Pro is carving out a nice little niche for itself with laser rangefinders and golf GPS devices heavy on the features but light on the price. The company says its GPS Golf Band is sleeker and lighter (only 1 oz), with a much smaller profile than your typical wrist-mounted GPS device.
       
      Just don't call it a watch.
       

       
      We're looking for four of you to try this baby out to see if if performs as advertised. Is it easy to use? Does it pack a ton of performance into a modestly priced package? Is it, as its name would suggest, professionally precise?
       
      How To Apply:As you know, we take our product testing pretty seriously here at MyGolfSpy, so please read these instructions carefully.
       
      In this thread, tell us:
       
      Your name and home state/province
       
      Your handicap
       
      Do you use anything now to tell distance?
       

       
      Pretty easy!  Keep an eye on this thread, as we'll announce our testers next week.

      ​(4) Testers Wanted!!

      ​TomTom Golfer 2 GPS Watch
       
       
      So, just how much does a golf GPS watch really need to do?
       
      Front, middle and back distance to the green is a given. But what about distance to a hazard? Or distance to clear a hazard?
       
      Scorekeeping? Calorie counting?
       
      What about shot tracking and stat keeping?
       

       
      Testers Wanted:
       
      TomTom, a longtime GPS giant, says its new Golfer 2 GPS Watch can do all of these, and that you won't need a degree in quantum physics to figure out how to use it.
       
      MyGolfSpy's mission is to separate performance fact from marketing hype, and we want four of you to help us test out the new TomTom Golfer 2 GPS watch. Does it serve the most basic of GPS functions, and how well do all of these newfangled features really work?
       

       
       
      How To Apply:
       
      TomTom is providing MyGolfSpy with four Golfer 2 watches for our readers to test and review (and keep). We take our product testing pretty seriously at MyGolfSpy, so please read the instructions very carefully:
       
      - If you haven't already, you must join the MyGolfSpy Community Forum (click here to register).
       
      - In this thread, please tell us your first name, state or province, and current handicap
       
      Pretty easy, huh?
       
      We'll be announcing the testers in this space next week.  Good luck!
