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

Recommended Posts

How quickly does this thing charge for you? I left it plugged in over night and it didn't charge at all. I plugged it in this afternoon when I left and turned it a few different ways and it seemed to be charging. Came home 3 hours later and it went from 20% to 70%. Seems slow... Thoughts?

Just a few hours to go from 50% to 100% for me

I have had the same issue with the charging. I find cleaning the sensors after playing helps it. If there is dirt or sweat on them from the round this will cause a poor or no charge.

Credit and thanks to all you guys for diligently testing and providing the feedback to SC.  Seems like as others have said, they really like the feedback from everyone.   I'll be following the long term results of watch.

Nathan has been really helpful.  I hope to see some updates based on our feedback and if they can get things in order I might consider the annual fee but at this point I wouldn't pay it when there are other options out there that are free.  Of course that's the whole point of beta testing so its going to be a fun ride I think

When you tag shots, are you tagging half/punch/chips along with full shots? I feel like it'd mess up distances if you do. Here's a scorecard from today. It kept track really well, with only a few fixes due to me hitting extra shots/putts while I waited.

I tag every shot so that it gets accurate distances. I go into the app and clear the club post round so my distances aren't skewed

I just timed the charging of my watch. On a quick charge USB port it charges at about 20% an hour.

 

I haven't timed it on a non quick charge port, but the first time I charged the watch it was on a different port and it seemed like it too overnight to charge it from half.

The autoswing feature is not working properly and the synching feature does not work anymore either...? Anyone else having issues?

When you attempt to sync, is it not reading the watch? I wear sunscreen every round and sometimes it will get on the watch and won't read on the laptop when I sync. Take a q-tip with some rubbing alcohol and swab the four magnets where you attach the USB cord. That takes care of it for me. 

 

The autoswing has worked about 95% of the time for me. Every now and then when I check my stuff on the computer, I'll see a missed shot or wayward shot.

Mine is the other way. When I'm able to sync my round scores are between 6 and 11... which is obviously incorrect

Had issues yesterday, was spraying the ball in to the other fairway, so the watch thought I was playing that hole. 

 

Really need an easier way to scan the club and have it not count to the average, for chips, pitches, etc. I know just dont scan it, but then I start to forget to scan them all.

I played yesterday and even though I tagged my shots and the watch read them correctly and they appeared correct on each hole map, the scorecard was showing incorrect clubs. I emailed Nathan (poor guy probably getting flooded with emails on this test), but haven't heard back. 

 

On the bright side, I've played 6 rounds with this watch and despite my putting woes, my scores have dropped an average of 2 strokes. I previously used a laser range finder but this GPS watch is doing wonders for course strategy. Of the six rounds, four have been at courses I've never played/play only a few times a year. So while the technology still has bugs, the scores have reflected the benefit of this watch.

It's pretty easy to change the holes on the watch with the buttons on the top and bottom of the right side of the watch...at least for me it is.

The GT2 manual says to use the divot tool on shots like that. The club will show up as "---" but it will record the shot.

Just went to sync my round from this morning and nothing. It shows two blank rounds...with none of my marked shots. Watch had trouble finding the course. Had to restart it a few times until it did.

Easy to do, if you know it auto switched holes. I sliced my drive on hole one in to hole 7 fairway, the rest of hole 1, it had me playing hole 7.  (Wasnt really paying attention to distance because it was my home course and I know what clubs to hit)

      (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!
