Official Forum Member Review - Sky Caddie Linx GT GPS Watch & Shot Tracking System

It is a nice watch, however 2 rounds this weekend, one round, it kept saying no GPS. Maybe Im just used to the ease of my apple watch everyday, this seems to be less user friendly than I'd like.

I was hoping to try this out this week, but we have insane storms going on and have received 6+ inches of rain overnight and it's still raining. I'm afraid to think about how long courses may be closed.... But thankfully my house is dry.

You may want to contact CS. It should pickup GPS after the initial finding of the course. Maybe the GPS chip in the watch is having issues.

I did, we reset it and checked it using the fitness GPS.

So I got this out on the course this morning. I had to play the same 9 twice because the backside is under water with all of the rain we've received in the past week. The front was very wet, but very playable. The watch picked up the course within a minute which was nice.

 

I'll say the watch is comfortable to wear. I don't even notice it being there which is nice. The person at Skycaddie told me he just wanted me to use the 'Rangefinder' gpa part of the watch my first few rounds and 'autoswing' would pick up my shots and distances and such. So I just used the GPS on the watch. It was nice to have the front middle and back, although I was a little shakey not having the exact distance to the pin as I usually do with my rangefinder. So I did that for both nines. Distances seemed good as I verified with my rangefinder a few times. I did have to start 2 separate rounds because I was playing the front side twice.

 

Afterwards I needed to hook up the watch to my computer and download some software so that it could sync up. I have to say this is a PAIN in the butt. I don't understand why it can't just sync up with the app on the phone (If this is possible, I couldn't figure it out). But maybe that comes later. I was just following the directions the guy gave me. I then had to go in and put my scores in hole by hole, along with putts and hit/missed fairways.

 

I'm not sure why, but I don't see anything about 'autoswings' anywhere in the apps or on the Skygolf360 website. It's all kind of maddening really. So I guess it didn't track any of the swings or distances with the 'autoswing' feature so I'm not quite sure how to remedy that part.

 

So far, the pain of all the different steps to upload and score and sync make me think people may want to stay far away from this thing.... We'll see how things progress. I hope I'm just hitting bumps in the road as I'm starting to use it. Maybe there should be a seminar online for new users! haha.

 

Hoping we get to play our league tomorrow and I"ll try again.

Does the app show your path from tee to green visually? If you guys get into some adventurous holes, please share those photos for a good laugh.

 

Conversely, it would be cool to see some excellent recoveries as well.

You have to do all the stuff online because they don't want us using the app right now. When you use the app during the round it is my understanding you won't have to do anything post round if you use the tags and such too. Auto swing also failed for me as well. Had my score as 21 and I couldn't even find the 21 shots it said it recorded. Had to input everything online.

A bunch of other folks were also given the opportunity through MGS as well...a few weeks after the original guys were chosen which is why you'll probably see a few more of us posting in here.

I think more for beta testing the software than anything else.

 

I've already had mine fail and have to send back for a replacement. Seems to be a lot of software issues they are having.

Mine too...

 

One thing I really dont like, they need an option for the shot tracking post shot/hole that categorizes a shot. If I punch a 4 iron from the trees 50 yards, I should be able to label it punch and not count it to the total yardage averages vs not tracking at all.

To add to that, average punch/flop/half swing distances could be useful information when deciding what to do in tricky lies.

one thing I want to add that might help others like me...I dreaded playing golf with a watch on.  I tried my apple watch a few times last year and hated it so much it came off around the 4th hole each time.  With the Linx GT I had no issues at all.  I put it on before I left home to "get used to it" but it is so light and comfortable I had no issues with it at all.  In fact I found myself still wearing it when I got home because I forgot to take it off.  

 

So if the thought of wearing a watch during golf is keeping you from trying this then it is likely a concern you will get over quickly upon wearing this.
