The Golf Monthly team brings you its SkyCaddie LINX review, revealing all you need to know about this golf GPS watch

Product Overview

Overall rating:

SkyCaddie LINX

Pros:

  • As you’d expect, all SkyCaddie products offer outstanding accuracy. The data provided is very clear and quick to update. If you want added extras on a watch you will find plenty here when you pay the annual subscription fees to get the most out of it. Score collection that syncs with SkyCaddie stat analysis (iPhone and Android) will give you plenty of extra information.

Cons:

  • It’s clear, and justified, why the subscription system is in place in the top-end SkyCaddie models, but it’s unlikely those investing in a watch will want to pay annual fees for the added information.

Key technology: SkyCaddie LINX review

The Sky Caddie LINX uses yardages plotted on foot to provide distances to the front, middle and back of greens on over 35,000 preloaded courses. It can be connected to the SkyGolf app on a smartphone using Bluetooth to make any course updates. With an annual membership (£39.95) the LINX will provide up to 40 hazard and lay-up distances and IntelliGreen, which shows green shape.

Verdict

You can expect outstanding accuracy from this watch, with all yardages during testing proving to be spot on. The watch is robust and offers very clear and easy-to-understand information. There are a lot of buttons on the watch but after a quick read of the instructions followed by a few holes on the course it isn’t too difficult to operate. It sits in the mid-price range for a GPS watch, and you get accurate information that can be trusted out on any course. The green view helps bring the product to life.
