Very good golf gps watch, not perfect as a smartwatch.The Lx5 has a bright easy to read face and offers many great golf hole and course information. It’s like owning one of skycaddie handheld golf devices but on your wrist. Easy to use and manipulate screens. It paired with the skycaddie 360 app easily. For just golf it may be the most accurate and best one on the market. It counts steps and gives you your average heart rate on a separate screen. It’s at this point the Lx5 falls short of being a true smart/fitness watch. Does not offer phone notifications, predefined workouts or most other features offered by garmin or golfbuddy.If your interested in a golf watch that is accurate, easy to use and offers skycaddie accuracy and detail, this one is one you should look at seriously. If you’re wanting a golf gps with true smartwatch you may want to look elsewhere.With this in mind I would definitely recommend the Lx5.At $300.00 it’s a bit pricey but does come with a prepaid 3 year skycaddie membership.As for build and durability, only time will tell. The case is plastic, the crystal is plastic and the interhangeable band is silicone or rubber. As for battery usage, you can expect to get two full rounds from a full charge.

I returned the watch because I had to constantly go back intro the watch and restart for the new hole that I was playing. Sometimes the watch would go back to finding the satellites for the course again, very frustrating.The screen goes black after 15 seconds so I was constantly tapping the screen. I found the watch to be a distraction.
I purchased this product to use as a golf GPS on the course, replacing a Garmin product. It is indeed a great product, but, I was unable to read it, especially wearing polarized sun glasses. I also found it hard to interact with the screen features due to size. I ended up larger SkyCaddie hand held which has proven to be a wonderful upgrade to The GPS I use on the course. The features between the watch and handheld are similar if not identical. It’s an issue of what size is best.
I’ve used Skycaddie GPS units for over twenty years…my wife bought me a competitor’s GPS a few years ago..used it for few weeks and went back to my Skycaddie..Last year I bought the SX 500 an outstanding GPS, however a few months ago someone stole it off my pull cart while I was in the pro shop, I immediately contacted Skycaddie and had it turned off..I debated on getting the LX5, told myself it would be to small, wouldn’t be able to read the information, would be difficult to swing with a watch on my wrist and on and on..I was absolutely wrong, this thing is so accurate, very easy to read, no issues with the size on my swing…I love it…I dire anyone to steal this off my wrist..I’ve read a few question the cost, it’s part of your game, do you play with a $100.00 driver or wear crap shoes..No you don’t..Buy the damm thing and enjoy, you’ll thank me…
Elegant combination of watch and state of the art GPS system in a single device. The watch has proven easy to use, accurate and I like the scoring function to keep track of fairways, greens in regulation, putts etc. While a bit more pricey than competitors, the quality stands out. Exceptional product!
Handy on course. Bad batter life and software interface to upload courses is weak. Just by a Garmin GPS watch
