I would love to join the tester pool for this product.

I had one of the earliest versions of the handheld sky caddie (maybe the original, I think - was a while ago), then the Sky Caddie SGX. Then I transitioned to the Garmin Approach S60 (wrist), which I currently use in tandem with a Leupold GX5i-3. Bit of a golf geek for electronics, training aids, books, magazines etc. 

Current index is 8.4. Play at a private club.

Happy to get involved.

James Clare New CastleThere’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:
