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?



This review opportunity is open to members residing in the United States. If you'd like to be considered, please reply to this thread with the following information:

I've used just about every downloadable GPS app.  

I currently use a Bushnell Phantom (with bite) which has been my favorite method for distance measurement so far.

Yes. I use GPS on The Grint app sometimes, and GPS on golfNow sometimes. 

 Current method to determine yardage is a Callaway Rangefinder with Slope.
