Recommended Posts

Tony, New Orleans LA

The only GPS I ever used was iPhone app.

I currently use a Bushnell range finder. Missing yardages to hazards, etc that a GPS would include.

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?

I have owned and used Golf GPS units for many years. 2 Skygolf handhelds, 1 Callaway handheld, and 1 Garmin watch, which I currently use. I also use a Bushnell rangefinder in addition to my Garmin watch. I want the numbers.

I try and get the yardage from one of my regular foursome who has a GPS watch.  Otherwise I depend on the yardage indicators supplied by the course.

I’d probably be a good tester. I have had a couple skycaddies.  I switched to the Garmin G8 because of its viewing ease.  And I like to nail the intermediate yardages on courses that are new to me.  I am a 7 handicap and play a lot of golf on many different courses.

I've used GPS apps, like 18Birdies, but only occasionally and never for long

Now I use a low end range finder (Precision?) for yardage
