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?

1. Mark Somers - Rochester, NY

2. Yes - I use the Golf Buddy watch and Bushnell Tour V4 shift (slope on usually).

3. I determine yardage from the Golf Buddy watch for front-back-center yardages as well as some hazard information.  I also shoot the flag with a Bushnell rangefinder if aiming for the pin is practical on a given green.  

I can put the watch to the test because I play usually 5 days per week on 2-3 different courses.  I am detail-oriented and will provide a thorough review of the watch.
