2020 Official Member Review: SkyCaddie LX5 Watch

So played my first round with the watch yesterday (sort of). I play every round with my Apple Watch on and it never bugs me, but after hitting 10-15 shots on the range I couldn’t wear the LX-5 and play at the same time.

Overall the feel while light felt bulky and was a major distraction to my eye sight when getting set up in my stance. It felt like even more of a distraction on the putting green. I think ultimately it had less to do with the size of the watch face and more to do with the thickness of the face. It stands almost a half inch tall off the wrist. The data it was providing was very valuable as this was my 3rd time playing the course, so I found a creative way to use this throughout the round. I walk and carry my bag most days, so slapping it on my bag was easy enough and I could review the yardage and slope right there on my bag quickly.

I did not experience the delay in finding the course that some other reviewers have noted. It wasn’t fast but had the course pulled up within 2-3 minutes.

Short on course data review:
The front-center-back data was extremely helpful as I often use my bushnell V4 to get exact pin location and then miss that yardage by a bit and am off the back or short of the green if puns are tucked.

I also noticed I was playing quicker as I wasn’t having to pull my rangefinder out of its case or my phone out of my pocket on every shot.

I’m playing a brand new course in north Georgia this Friday and Saturday and will write up my full review of the watch based on those rounds because I think the ability to see the course details and slope will be very helpful on a new course.

If your not used to wearing big face watches, I can see how it could be distracting.  I would imagine wearing a watch like this one would not let you function!! 😂😂😉😉

Here are some photos from yesterday at pasatiempo and this afternoon at Spanish Bay. I’ll be posting all my updates in the ‘How’d you play’ spychat thread. Look out for tomorrow where I’ll post update

It's here! It's finally here! (pictures to follow) Just wanted to jot down some initial impressions so I don't forget my thoughts and feelings from the last hour of unboxing/setting up. Fi

That’s actually a great idea 💡 well done. 👍 And I agree, it’s not so much the circumference of the watch, but rather the thickness of it that takes a little getting used to. 

Also, I noticed that if you go within the Menu, then go to ‘Info’ and scroll down to ‘GPS’ ... at the next screen you’ll see that it attempts to wakeup the GPS and that it’s status is ‘searching’. Once the GPS coordinates are located, when you go to play your round, it’ll locate you and the surrounding courses quickly.

Of the 3 devices I had out yesterday (SC, Arccos, Bushnell laser), the yardage results were sometimes radically different. 

I didn't stress over it though, and shot a double bogey free 42, my 2nd best for this course on the front.  🙂  first time no dubs!  🙂

Brilliant way to wear it.  I will say first impression, it is more...invasive...on the wrist than my old garmin.   I did not notice it while playing though. 

 

I also had no problem finding and downloading my course.  It all happened while waiting for the guy in front of me to take his approach shot.

I played about 5 holes yesterday with the new LX5 and I wanted to share my initial reaction.  Before I do, you should know that I currently use a Garmin S20 watch.  The S20 is basic as far as watches go, gives me distances to front, middle and back.  Gives me layup distances and distances to trouble (water or traps).  The screen is pretty small and it is only in black and white.  Again, nothing fancy but does everything you need it to do. 

The LX5 is BIG!  Not only does it have a large circumference but it is also pretty tall off the wrist.  The LX5 did not find my home course at first.  I had to load it up three times for it to finally recognize the course.  Once it did, the screen light up very clear and bright.  I liked this a lot!!!  Everything was easy to see and I liked the instructional videos that Sky Caddie has on their website with regards as to how to use the watch.  I found it to be pretty easy once I watched the videos. 

A few things I DON'T LIKE initially:

1.  Takes a long time to find courses

2.  Cannot receive text messages on this watch (my cheaper Garmin does)

3.  Would like to have a screen protector to guard against scratching the screen

4.  You need a subscription

 

Things I DO LIKE initally:

1.  Easy to see the screen

2.  Bright and clear

3.  I can zoom in on any hole or even the numbers if I want them to display larger

4.  Swipe controls work great

I will keep you posted as I play around with this more.

So this morning, I allowed the battery to drain all the way down to dead and then charged to see how quickly it would get back to 100% ... it. was. quick! Wish I had timed it, for what felt like 30 mins or so later, the watch was fully charged at 100%! I was very impressed. 

It was at 100% this morning, have worn that watch all day while I worked from home and ran errands ... currently, it’s 94%. Have to be happy about that.

Played a full round today with this watch for the first time.  The pictures below are of number 3 at Maple Dale Country Club, a short par 3.  I had both watches and then I shot the flag with my Bushnell.  Not too shabby SkyCaddie. 

The second picture is of a distance tracker.  This happened to be off of one of my better drives on the day.  This feature is pretty easy to use, you just hit the golf ball icon, then a button that says "mark". 

After the round I synched the watch into my SkyCaddie 360 app to analyze the data.  This is a pretty cool feature but I need more rounds in there to really dive into the app.  I will keep you posted.

I just hopped on to say it's still got some juice since its initial charging on Sunday.

I've played two 9 hole rounds and fiddled with it a little.  It survived a few minutes of a downpour no problem.  

It is big, yes.  It is massive compared to my Garmin which is basic and probably has a much smaller battery.  Funny it was mentioned a few posts ago about no face protector, yesterday I thought for a moment how a Swatch-guard would fit, lol, then decided that was dumb. 🤣🤷‍♀️🤣

 

It appears to be built with a hull and face much like my Samsung Frontier S3.  If it is the same materials and craftsmanship,  no worries.  That watch survived a Onewheel crash on the street at 21.7mph.  I was bloody as heck, my watch had minor scratches on the frame, none on the face 🙂

I was able to play 54 holes the last 2 days with the watch. Monday I was able to get 36 holes out of the watch. On my 51st hole it flashed the low battery but it was able to finish the round and died after the round when I was getting a drink. I have not worn a watch for a few years and I really like how this feels on my wrist. My initial thought was it felt heavy. But when it is on my wrist it feels very light and I do not notice it. My only error, and this is user error is that I had it set up to receive notifications. Lucky it never buzzed in my back swing.

Yesterday was only 18 holes but again the watch worked great. It is easy to see, easy to keep score if you want and I need to utilize all the functionality of the watch. Especially in tournament play when it is slow I feel I could get more information and that is always helpful.

I have to echo what a few testers are seeing regarding battery life during normal wear. I began Saturday, 8/22 with a full charge. I wore it Saturday evening/night to a graduation party, most of the day Sunday while doing chores around the house, I played 12 holes on Sunday, wore it while working at home and taking walks in the evening Monday and Tuesday. 

This morning, 8/26, my battery life is 4%

I am impressed so far with the battery endurance compared to my Fossil smartwatch. That battery I need to charge every night.

I was able to play 54 holes the last 2 days with the watch. Monday I was able to get 36 holes out of the watch. On my 51st hole it flashed the low battery but it was able to finish the round and died after the round when I was getting a drink. I have not worn a watch for a few years and I really like how this feels on my wrist. My initial thought was it felt heavy. But when it is on my wrist it feels very light and I do not notice it. My only error, and this is user error is that I had it set up to receive notifications. Lucky it never buzzed in my back swing.

Yesterday was only 18 holes but again the watch worked great. It is easy to see, easy to keep score if you want and I need to utilize all the functionality of the watch. Especially in tournament play when it is slow I feel I could get more information and that is always helpful.

Agreed. It’s impressive how light the watch is. And congrats on the top 10! The SC mid-am is a long-term goal of mine as well.  

We’ve been getting obscene amounts of rain the past 3-4 days and played in a 2-person 9 hole scramble late yesterday afternoon ... it was cart path only and having the watch as opposed to my phone was great.

I’d simply get the initial distance from the cart path, carry 2 clubs and a towel ... walk over, measure distance and swing away. The next time out, I’ll start plugging in my scores and then upload them to the app ... curious to see the benefits and data shared.

I will be playing the next two evenings.  I will try to get some more photos of the watch.  Is there anything anyone wants to see about it?

A few days ago I mentioned it was supposed to rain all week. Well it's possible that today I can get out to a different course to take advantage of all the great features this watch offers! May only get 9 holes in the window of no rain but I can't wait!
