TomTom Golfer GPS Watch Review

'TomTom Golfer'

Order from Amazon

We are definitely looking forward to doing our TomTom Golfer GPS Watch Review. Besides being a very nice looking watch, TomTom appears to have taken a slightly different approach to displaying hazard distances. It’s a much more simplistic look than rival Garmin’s latest watches, but at a glance, we think the simplicity might work in TomTom’s favor.

TomTom Golfer User Rating: 3.70 Stars 3.70 out of 5 (100 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

One thing we’ve already noticed about TomTom’s golf watch is that it includes distances to hazards as well as layup distances to doglegs and 100, 150 and 200 yardage markers. Our current top golf watch picks are the Garmin S4 and the Bushnell neo XS. The Garmin only has the layup distances and the Bushnell only has hazards. If TomTom executes this well, having both will be a big selling point.

The latest Garmin watch, the S6 has access to hazard information via the CourseView screen which displays graphic views of part of the hole. Unfortunately, it takes more than a quick glance to figure out what you’re seeing. The TomTom graphics are totally basic, which might actually make it easier and quicker to locate the distance you need.

The TomTom Golfer doesn’t have a touchscreen or any buttons on the face. Instead, there is a touchpad on the watchband. It’s a little unusual looking, but overall, the watch looks great. It comes preloaded with 34,000+ courses, is rainproof and it has a scorecard.
