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

Recommended Posts

For the shot tracking, I hit a bad slice on a par 5 in to the next fairway, hybrid came out back in to my fairway, it said I hit my driver 480 yds, because it didnt realize I was off the fairway and took another shot, even though I tagged the shot.

.

 

Did you change you watch back to the correct hole before tagging?

Thanks for the update.

 

I personally don't care if it recommends a club but I also find it odd the website has a place for us to put in club distances so it can recommend clubs but why can't it just use the distances it has tracked? And it also has never recommended a club, lol.

 

Also agree that 36 holes on one charge is hard to believe. I'm under 50% after 18 so maybe they mean it can go 36 in dark mode with Bluetooth off? Kinda stinks since dark mode makes post round editing a pain but then again I hardly ever play 36 in one day.

 

Side note when I synced my watch it didn't screw up Saturday's round this time. Yay

Not sure. That's the weird part. Seems to support it based on the web but doesn't seem to do it on the watch

Probably. I didn't delve into the app too deeply because I didn't want to lose my mind.

Another round in the books. Everything was pretty smooth except it didn't record my shots on my last 4 holes. Honestly the club tracking just really isn't my thing so I'm not torn up over it. Post round editing online went smoothly this time.

 

Haven't heard from skycaddie in a while so not sure what's next. I'll keep doing full test til they say we are done but after that it'll likely just be used for gps distances.

I played yesterday afternoon on a course I've never used the watch on and it worked great. The watch and app picked up my shots that I tagged (forgot to tag a few approach shots) but I keep forgetting to put the divot tool in my bag to use during a round. The only modification I had to do to my scores during the round was change the default putts from 2 to 1. 

 

I really enjoy the stats on the app after you play a 5-10 rounds with the watch. I thought I missed most fairways to the left but over half my misses are to the right. 

 

The only thing I wish this system could do is to capture wind speed and direction during your round. Not on every hole, but tap into the weather channel based on your location and record the wind speed and direction at the beginning, middle and end of your round. The only reason is that if it's windy, it alters your distances and while the app said I hit my driver 279, I know I had a 15mph head wind on that shot. It might cause too much of an issue, but one can dream, right?

Used the watch in dark mode today at a new Course. Got home and synced via Bluetooth on the app and it only missed my score by one stroke. However the hole by hole scores were pretty jacked up. I didn't tag every shot but it did a good job with the auto swing. Took about 5-10 minutes to edit everything online.

 

My main issue right now is the divot tool sucks so I put a tag on my putter and the watch will only read it a couple times a round. I guess I need to change tags or something but it's just weird it only recognizes it a couple times.

 

I did find myself not really caring if I tagged shots or not. I tagged my driver and second shot every time so that I can get some figures for my shaft testing but otherwise I feel like I am “over” shot tagging.

Linx GT automatically counts 2 putts when u reach green. I adjust whenever I can thru the round.

I'm over shot tagging for sure. I tried to tag them today and the watch wasn't having any part of it. While the gps aspect is great, I'm beginning to think the tracking of my club distances isn't as important as I want it to be in my head. I know my distances and they're pretty solid. Just not a benefit to me, especially if I have to be tagging and taking focus away from my round.

I think that'll be the beauty of shot scope once it comes out. No tagging but plenty of tracking.

How do you get it to recommend a club?

Hey guys, it's Nathan from SG.

 

The SkyCaddie Touch provides club recommendations, but it isn't currently supported on the LINX GT / GameTracker system. If you enter your club averages on SkyGolf 360, the "RangeVue" feature on the Touch will show you the distance and suggested club.

Not sure how you tried to sync, but it looks like your shots are still saved on your LINX GT. 

 

Try syncing your LINX GT again with the SkyCaddie Mobile app to upload your shots.

I'm going to try this. I started teaching again two weeks ago and I'm absolutely swamped. School is super quiet at 5pm on a Friday

      (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!
