    Garmin Approach S20Read Full Review

    We’ve put the Garmin S20 at the top of our list because it’s an outstanding golf watch at very low price point. Besides that, it’s a worthy activity and sleep tracker and can aslo recieve notifications from your smartphone.

    As a golf watch, it provides distance to the front, middle, and back of the green on the main screen, as well as the green shape. You can manually adjust the pin placement and you can also view distances to the front and back of hazards as well as doglegs. There’s a feature called AutoShot that automatically records the distance of your shots. When you combine the watch stats with Garmin Connect, your post-game analysis gets really interesting. It can also pair up with Garmin TruSwing™ if you want swing metrics. We love that it automatically updates courses you play regularly, looks and feels better than most golf watches, and it has 15 hours of battery life in GPS mode or 8 weeks in activity mode!

    Although Bushnell is known for their laser rangefinders, they really seemed to have nailed it in the golf watch category as well. They have figured out that what a majority of golfers want is not bells and whistles, but simply a comfortable golf watch that is easy to use and provides distances to greens and hazards. The Neo Ion brings the same winning formula to a smaller, lighter, and better looking golf GPS watch. Best of all, the battery life will easily go three full rounds!

    We love Garmin golf watches and we love Garmin fitness bands, so we find the Garmin X40 band very exciting. Golf features include distance to the front, middle, and back of every green, plus hazard distances. You can see the shape of the green and manually adjust the pin position. AutoShot tracking measures and records your shot distances automatically. It has a scorecard and stat-tracking. Activity tracking shows steps, distance, calories burned, heart rate and activity intensity. If that’s not enough, you can get notifications from your smartphone.

    GolfBuddy just keeps building on a winning theme. The GolfBuddy Voice 2 claims 14 hours of battery life. That’s four hours more than the GolfBuddy VS4! It’s water resistant, has the choice of male or female voice, and of course provides distances to the front, middle, and back of the green. It’s available in three different colors as well. The wristband can be ordered separately on Amazon.

    GolfBuddy Voice XRead Full Review

    The GolfBuddy Voice line has been a huge success from the beginning. The VoiceX is the latest in this line and has a few nice upgrades from its predecessor the GolfBuddy Voice 2. The most notable improvement is that it adds Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone for automatic updates to the golf course you’re playing when you enter golf mode. The screen is a little larger and it has a Big Numbers mode and manual pin placement capability. It also adds a fairly detailed GPS activity tracker for runners and walkers. It may sacrifice some battery life for the extra features, but should still easily get 2 full rounds. A watchband is available separately.

    The GolfBuddy Voice gives visual and auditory distances to the front, middle and back of every green. It’s simple, convenient and reasonably priced, and the ratings are fantastic! However, GolfBuddy has several newer models that are similarly priced, have high ratings, and better battery life! Check out the latest from GolfBuddy.

    Garmin Approach S6Read Full Review

    The Garmin Approach S6 is the only golf watch on the market with fairway views and manual targeting. That’s what makes this watch worth the extra money. If you’re standing on the tee of a dogleg with bunkers near your landing zone, it’s really nice to know how far the trouble is. It’s not for everyone, but it’s worth considering for those who play unfamiliar courses frequently.

    The Garmin vivoactive fitness watch provides distances to the front, middle and back of every green, plus layup yardages and doglegs. However, it is really a fitness watch that includes golf, rather than a golf watch. It will serve runners, cyclist, swimmers, walkers and anyone wanting to track steps and activity. It’s also a smartwatch that will provide notifications from your smartphone. For the price, it packs a lot of bang for your buck!
