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 app on my Fitbit as well as my home course app GPS. If all else fails I'll use yardage markers. Good luck everyone. Cheers

I live in Walnut Creek, CA. I play about 5 times a week. I use a rangefinder (NX7 Pro Slope) when I can see the flag and SwingU Android app or GolfLogix for wind speed and when the flag is not visible. I also recently tested the GolfSmith app on my Galaxy watch, but didn't think it was worth subscribing. I test a lot of consumer products as a volunteer for my employer. Therefore, I take detailed notes and describe the pros and cons thoroughly and thoughtfully. Due to my background in software engineering, I am also adept at describing user stories and testing all features for exceptions.
