Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch

Recommended Posts

Brent Wong - California

I've used apps on my phone before, but haven't in years.

I rely on the yardage markers on the course to estimate distance. If there are none, then I guess to varying degrees of success.

Driver: Ping G10

3w: Ping G10

4H: Callaway FTiz

Irons: Titleist DCI Oversize+ Gold 4-L

Putter: Odyssey O-works 7s

Definitely looking to replace all but the putter 😄

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?



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. Steve Smith Oahu Hawaii
  2. Yes, a very much older Garmin from the mists of time. This one has color? What'll they think of next!
  3. LASER rangefinder.
