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?

I use an older model Bushnell hybrid range finder/gps. My home course has a lot of blind shots to the greens due to different elevation changes so this is where my gps comes in handy when no flagstick is in sight.

I’ve never used a gps watch, but I have used GolfStatus and 18 birdies 

I use a Nikon range finder, but I have always wanted to try one of the watches for getting distances to the fronts and backs of greens.
