Some of golfers' favorite words: "It's in the hole!" "Split the fairway!" "You're dancing!" "It's dry." (OK, that last one isn't the best news, but if you're in tho

TESTERS ANNOUNCED! We've got TEN forum members who are going to see if the SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is going to be the best tool for them to hear "Pin high" just a little more often! @AGut

Yes, I wear an  Apple Watch 5 and love it.

I currently use a Leupold rangefinder to determine yardage.

Yes - Garmin Approach S2 watch, Bushnell Neo handheld, Garmin Approach G3 handheld, Garmin VivoActiv3 watch

A combination of GPS and Laser - most of the courses we play have severe dog legs and fairway hazards that require a layup.  Accurate distances to the hazards and landing zones are critical.  I would love to see what this watch can do compared to others I have used.

I currently use a simple gps, tells distances to f/m/b of green, no pictures. I also have to press a button to get to the next hole.

I do not have a steady hand to use a rangefinder, and this looks promissing.

shoot 80-85 most rounds, but, can shoot lower.

Currently using a handheld Garmin.  Never tried a watch GPS. Don’t know if I would like one or not. Would like to find out. Thanks!

I use a combination of sky caddie sx500 and NX7 precision pro laser range finder.  If I were forced to choose between the two devices, I would keep the SX500 and do without the laser.  Knowing front middle and back and distances to bunkers and other hazards makes the scores a lot lower and the game more enjoyable.  I also really like the score keeping capability of the SX500 with putting stats and fairways hit or missed.  I play over 100 rounds per year so I can put most anything to the test.
