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.

I have never used a watch but a lot of my golf friends do.

i currently use a Bushnell Tour laser rangefinder.  It is starting to get beat up and I am looking to get a replacement and this watch may fit me perfectly.
