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!

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

I use Golf Logix on my Android phone, been using it for about 5 years now, was better at beginning now is more confusing than helpful. I tried Golf Shot by Zoom that fails on so many levels I went back to Golf Logix. I'd try this though not a big fan of watches?

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?

Most of the GPS units that I have used are incorporated into the Golf Cart.

When faced with no cart GPS.......I rely on course markers and approximate.

I was a sky caddie customer from day one . Loading courses always took longer than it should . Modern gps devices have thousands of courses loaded in much easier
