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 know I'm probably not eligible for this one due to having already been involved in a major 2020 testing, but i figured what the hell?! Been really liking my Garmin Viviactive 3 and have recently given the Nexus PrecisionPro rangefinder to my nephew due to really buying into the GPS watch idea so this would be fun. At the least great to follow.
