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?

TESTERS WANTED

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

1. Ryan W. - Cleveland, OH

2. Yes, I have - I currently own a Bushnell neoXS watch that I received as a gift in 2016. 

3. I've been using that neoXS watch for essentially every round since receiving it. I find it to be pretty accurate and rely on it 98% of the time. If there is a precise yardage that I need, I'll rely on a playing partner's rangefinder.

I have not used a gps watch or device

I either use my phone apps like 18 birdies or golf now complete or I find the closest yardage mark and guess my yardage based off that.

  1. Kevin K, Grand Rapids, MI
  2. I tried to use an app on my phone years ago, and forget the name, but I hated having to keep my phone on me while trying to be present. I have never used a GPS watch for golf, but I do currently wear a Garmin 230 Forerunner watch that I've used for running around 5 years now. 
  3. My current method of determining yardage is a point and shoot range finder, which is a Nikon Coolshot
