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?

I've been using the Golf GPS by SwingU for the last couple years.  Pretty accurate within 2-3 yards of my friends rangefinder.

I use the app to double check my eyeballing it.  

Good luck everyone! And to everyone in the NY/NJ area, looks like we wont be golfing this weekend...freakin' Fay
