Do you use a golf GPS clock? If not, you’ve probably wondered if range finders add value to your score.
The benefits of a GPS golf watch result from the exact distances to the green – usually even green start, middle, and end. On many models, you can also read distances to obstacles. Surely it has happened to you once or even more often: A good blow, which missed the wrong target by the wrong estimation of the distance by eye or by vague markings such as distance markings.
With a GPS clock, you have a specific meter and can specifically select the matching racket. Long-term additional advantage: By measuring distances regularly, you will become better acquainted with the range of your individual clubs.
The data for the distance measurement refers to the software of the GPS-based clocks from a manufacturer-dependent database. Most of the time, there are already thousands of golf courses preinstalled worldwide when buying a golf watch. Updates for reconciliation after re-surveying a place as well as for loading new golf courses are available to you after the purchase usually free of charge as a service. To download, you need only the manufacturer-dependent software – often just an app for your smartphone.
What do you think is the right golf watch for your needs?
The offer on the market is large, and in addition to specialized manufacturers as well as providers of related industries, offer no name vendors their products. It is true that even if the functions hardly differ at first glance, you will quickly notice that the differences in processing, user-friendliness, readability, and features are great.
Loading updates, battery life, and design, size, and comfort also matter when it comes to finding the right golf watch for you. Unfortunately, the only real golf watch on the market that meets the needs of each user does not exist.
