Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch

Recommended Posts

David Stockwell / Bellaire, Texas

Yes: Skycaddie (v2 through Skycaddie SGX-W), Arccos with Samsung Galaxy 10

Arccos and Bushnell T4, stepping off from sprinkler heads.


Would love to test an accurate and reliable Skycaddie. My SG-X broke after a few months and very few rounds. Could not turn it off, nor turn it on. Tracking pointer stopped working. Now sitting on my desk, unused and unusable for years.

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

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:

  1. Name and Location
  2. Have you ever used a GPS device or watch? Which one(s)?
  3. Current method of determining yardage

I use a garmin gps watch.

Michael Thompson - Paola, KS

Yes, my first one is the one I still use.   Bushnell Excel

I currently get front,  middle, and back of the green yardage on my watch.   Look to see where the pin is and make my estimate from there.

Currently use a Bushnell Phantom attached to the golfcart as well as a Leupold GX-5i 3.   Since I ride and walk, I have been looking at GPS watches and would love the opportunity to test the SkyCaddie LX5.  Recently retired from IBM, I am a 1 handicap that plays 2-3 times a week.  Thanks!
