Golf GPS Watch Buyer's Guide

Which GPS Watch is right for your game?

GPS watches are the latest innovation in distance finding devices, combining style and functionality with convenience. They will tell time, automatically recognize the course and give you distances to the front, center and back of the greens and more.


Here are some features to look for when comparing GPS watches:

  • Weight and color
  • Battery life
  • Number of pre-loaded courses and access to download more
  • Additional features, like an odometer
  • PC/Software compatibility
