Recommended Posts

1. Dan Davidson, San Diego CA

2. Callaway uPro Go from Dec 2010 thru Jun 2015. In addition to distance to the green, it provided distance to the hazards as well

Golf Pad GPS app on Apple iPhone  - Jul 2015 thru Jun 2019

18 Birdies app on Apply iPhone - July 2019 thru present

3. Currently using 18 Birdies app, cart GPS when available, my partners rangefinder info when he shares it and I always compare with the course tee markers and yardage markers.  It is frustrating when they don't all agree.  I would be happy to test the new technology and provide a detailed review.

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?



This review opportunity is open to members residing in the United States. If you'd like to be considered, please reply to this thread with the following information:
