Is it time for a new GPS golf watch?October 13, 2017 Equipment
We test six of the best new models - are you due an upgrade?
A really nice, clean and simple display in watch and golf mode. It’s fairly sleek and you’d have no problem wearing it off the course as a normal watch.
A super-premium watch which is packed with features for golf and other lifestyle activities. Aerial maps alongside the yardages are ideal for new courses.
Golf Buddy WTX
A range of different displays which can be changed with a tap on the touchscreen. Simple operation with just the one button. A really soft and comfortable strap.
Shot Scope V2
The original model was a wristband that automatically tracked your shots with no tagging required. The band has now been upgraded to a fully-functional GPS watch.
Sky Caddie Linx GT
A great GPS watch in its own right but the shot and round-tracking features are excellent. If you’re really into technology and analysing your game, this is for you.
Tom Tom Golfer 2
This watch features automatic shot detection for round tracking via the Tom Tom app. Menus and features are easily accessible via the handy touch pad.
Three of the best lasers
Bushnell Pro X2
All the bells and whistles in a really stylish package. A bit heavier than some but we love the red display.
Golf Buddy LR7
Compact and simple, this is a no-nonsense laser that represents excellent value for money. Premium case is a bonus.
Nixon Coolshot 80I VR
The smallest of the lasers on the market but there’s clever technology to keep the image steady when trying to zap your target.
