I never wear a watch. I use my iPhone with SkyDroid installed. Accurate to a half yard. My carrier is Vorizon and I haven service in most locations. I am a 5 handicap and have been playing 45 years. I would like to test the accuracy, the weight and comfort playing with a watch on. How convenient vs my iPhone.

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?
