Is a golf GPS watch worth it?

Golf watches are one of the best investments a golfer can make. Unless you purchase a golf watch you simply can’t stand or doesn’t work, I very much doubt you will look at your golf GPS watch and not think it was worth it. 

Obviously, it is dependent on how much you spend and how much functionality you receive – and whether you think the value for money is good. In general, golf GPS watches are really good value for money with the more you spend the more features. Most GPS watches will tell you more than just yardages to the green now, even on the simple models. 

What is the easiest golf GPS watch to use?

If you want a simple watch which is easy to use and navigate, with enough features to give you distances to greens, hazards, doglegs then we recommend the TecTecTec Ult-G GPS or the Bushnell Ion Edge because both of these watches are made by credible manufacturers, show very clear yardages, and when you get to the course you simple turn the watch on select which course you are playing and the watch will do the rest – if you so desire. 

Both watches do have other features you can benefit from but as golf GPS watches you can power up on the first tee and leave until the 18th green these are great options.
