GolfBuddy isn’t messing with a good thing. The two predecessors to the VS4, the GolfBuddy Voice and Voice+ are on the top of our rankings charts for a reason…

GolfBuddy VS4 User Rating: 4.41 Stars 4.41 out of 5 (457 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

they are small, super easy to use and get great battery life. The VS4 builds on that by adding water resistance. Voice and/or digital display provide distances to the front, middle and back of the greens. Dynamic green view shows the shape of the green from your angle of approach and shot measuring gives you direct feedback about your game. Early user reviews are terrific and the price is nice! A watchband can be purchased separately.

Izzo Swami Voice User Rating: 2.82 Stars 2.82 out of 5 (37 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

However, until the price drops, the Swami Voice will have a tough time competing with the GolfBuddy Voice and the GolfBuddy Voice+, both of which are highly rated and reasonably priced. Still, the Izzo Swami Voice measures up very well from a features/price perspective and comes with everything you need to get started.

Notable Features
  • Visual and verbal distances to the front, middle and back of every green.
  • Preloaded with over 30,000 golf courses. No fees ever!
  • Auto hole advance
  • Auto course recognition
  • Includes wrist band – available in a variety of colors.
  • Rechargeable battery lasts 6-8 hours.
  • Durable and water resistant.

Our VC300 Voice Caddie Review reports takes into account our experience using the device, as well as user feedback.

As Voice Caddie is not the biggest name in golf GPS, we didn’t really expect to be “Wowed!” with the VC300, but as it turned out, we really were. From presentation to performance, we were impressed!

GolfBuddy Voice+ Review…

Golf Buddy Voice+ User Rating: 4.36 Stars 4.36 out of 5 (80 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

The first thing we noted is that the watchband can be removed if you decide you don’t like wearing a watch when you play golf. We think that’s a plus if you’re unsure of whether or not you’ll like playing with a watch.

The Golf Buddy Voice+ (Watch) is very similar to it’s wildly popular predecessor, the GolfBuddy Voice. The most noticeable difference, of course, is that it comes with a watch band. There is a difference on the main screen as well. On the new model, you’ll see the distance to the center of the green in a large font and distances to the front and back beside it in a smaller font. To fit this on the screen, they’ve moved the dynamic green view to a different screen. Both models provide voice distance to the front, middle and back. Your preference for having the green shape on your main screen vs having distances to the front and back may be the determining factor for which of these two units you buy – since you can now buy watch bands for the GolfBuddy Voice. Personally, I use distance to the front and back far more frequently, so prefer the Golf Buddy Voice+ (Watch).

Our Voice Caddie VC200 Review will be available shortly. Until then, let’s take a look at the specs and see how we think it will stack up against the competition.

Voice Caddie VC200 User Rating: 4.42 Stars 4.42 out of 5 (117 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.
Voice Caddie VC200 Notable Features
  • Provides voice/audio distances to the middle of every green.
  • Measures shot distances.
  • Preloaded with approximately 30,000 courses worldwide. Nearly 10,000 in the United States
  • Auto Course Recognition
  • Auto Hole Advance
  • Has a metronome for practicing swing rhythm
  • Comes with 7 different languages
  • Super small and will clip easily onto a belt or visor
  • It’s available in black or white
  • The price is right

Aside from the metronome, we don’t really see any features that set the Voice Caddie VC200 apart. The competition comes from I’m Caddie and Golf Buddy Voice. On features alone, the Voice Caddie VC200 does not measure up and the low price probably isn’t low enough to make up for the shortcomings. However we hope to give it a fair shot by taking it out for a test.

In the mean time, we suggest you look at the Golf Buddy Voice. It has several features that we think are important and the price is competitive with the VC200 or the I’m Caddie. Besides that, user feedback on Golf Buddy’s talking GPS has been excellent.
