Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch

Recommended Posts

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:

  1. Name and Location
  2. Have you ever used a GPS device or watch? Which one(s)?
  3. Current method of determining yardage

I currently use a Garmin S60 for layout and a Bushnell v4 for distance to pin.

I play at least twice a week and am playing at an 11 currently. I am a numbers junkie though and have a simulator setup as well that I use for dialing in my numbers versus the course.
