I've used the Garmin Approach s60 watch, and the Arccos sensors app with Android Wear OS watch. 

I now use the Arccos App (phone) for yardage.

- I used Sky Caddie App about 4 years ago, recently switched to using The Grint’s app for GPS. 

- Currently use The Grint, also have a TecTecTec VRPRO500 that I will use if the flagstick has the receiver on it. Otherwise I’ve found it to be inaccurate.

I have had two Garmin watches! 1st one was great but short battery life and eventually died. 2nd promised 12 hrs of life, actual 6hrs and it is not as accurate as the 1st. Im in the mkt, tester or not. Please put it through the ringer!!

Currently I’ve been experimenting with a bushnell tour V3 and iPhone but I’ve really been wanting to switch to a watch.

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?
