There’s some irony when contemplating the market for watches in 2020.

Specifically, it’s a situation where the original purpose of the item is no longer a defining selling point.

Remember when the primary, if not the only, purpose of a watch was to keep time? Me neither.

It’s a reasonable assumption that time is anything but of the essence; golfers are far more interested in all of the golf-related stuff that this piece of wearable technology does.

The SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is built around the architecture of the SX500which was named the “Best Handheld GPS” in MyGolfSpy’s annual Most Wanted testing.

It offers an abundance of bundled golf technology, and did I mention it also tells time. Ain’t that something?

Steve Adkins, I live in Reno, NV and play approximately 60 rounds a year. 
 

I’ve tried the golf shot app, golflogix app, and Golf gps Swing U app. I tried to use them with my Apple Watch, but the battery life was always an issue. 
 

I currently use a very basic Nikon rangefinder with no slope capability.

Good luck everyone. I feel lost on the course without a GPS watch.
