Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch


Recommended Posts

Todd Yoshioka (Portland, OR)

 

Never used a GPS Tracker regularly but very interested in Skycaddie or Arccos. I tried the S20 in the past but really never used it since I trusted the rangefinder much more.

 

Currently using a Bushnell Rangefinder for accurate distancing  


This watch looks clean and something I could wear everyday

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 either use 18Birdies, ask someone in the group if they have a range finder, or use the yard sticks to eyeball it
