We’re not going to do a full out SkyCaddie LINX Review. In our opinion, it’s just not worth our time or yours at this point. You are welcome to keep reading, but feel free to jump on over to our see what golf watches we do recommend.
SkyCaddie LINX User Rating:
3.22 out of 5 (27 reviews)
Score compiled from multiple sources including Amazon, GolfSmith and TGW.
The early user reviews are lousy and even though you will see many advertisements that say “No annual fees or membership required”, to get the features you want on this watch, you’ll need to purchase an annual membership. The only group of people we might recommend this watch for are those who have over two years remaining on a SkyCaddie membership and are looking to buy a golf watch. Even then, we would offer a warning based on the user feedback we’ve seen so far… “It’s not that easy to use!”
SkyCaddie is the only brand that charges fees for their golf GPS devices to work properly. For $49 a year over an above the price of the device, you would expect to be getting the finest golf GPS experience available, yet users consistently give SkyCaddie devices lower ratings than other brands. If you are a current SkyCaddie user, we suggest cutting your losses and switching to another brand with no fees. If you’ve never had a SkyCaddie, we can’t think of a good reason to buy one just yet.
Okay, now you can hop on over to our Best Golf Watch page and find the one that fits your style of play!
