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?

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 those circumstances....)

Let's add another to this list: "Pin high!" Who doesn't love the feeling of knowing the distance you've got, knowing you've got just the club for that distance, and hitting it exactly that far?

We've got TEN forum members who are going to see if the SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is going to be the best tool for them to hear "Pin high" just a little more often!

Let's send some congratulations to our members and stay tuned for their reviews!

Wow what a great group Congrats y'all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
