Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch


Recommended Posts

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?

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

HAve been using a Leupold Range Finder for 5 years...it works great.

I'm interested though in the newest technology and the convenience of getting the needed stats on my wrist without having to go back to the cart or bag to get my rangefinder.

Yes, Sky Caddie  (?5)  handheld (2005-2006), Laser Link Red, cart-based GPS. 

Currently use Laser Link and cart-based GPS.

I am looking at Shot Scope v3 and interested in all wearable solutions. I am a “long time listener, first time caller” and first signed into MGS Forums just today. I have not yet donated or contributed to the discussions and do understand that one must first pay their dues prior to gaining insider status, but hell, I’ve been rejected before... Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Thanks for the opportunity,

John P3

Hello. I currently use a Garmin S60 for golf. Not so much for everyday use due to the fact the watch screen is to dark. I do however use it every time i golf. Ive shot 64 rounds this year and the watch has been a great asset to my game. I would love to test the new skycaddie. Thank you Neal Hoover
