At TGW, we offer an amazing selection of golf electronics to help make the game easier.
This on-course technology can be broken up into three categories: rangefinders, GPS units, and GPS watches. Each type of device has its ways to help your game, depending on what types of information you find the most valuable. In this guide, we will outline the benefits of each type of golf technology to help you choose the right option for you.
Handheld GPS units make golf easier for you by providing maps and layouts of your favorite courses so you can better plan the way you play a hole. Golf GPS companies have mapped out and measured golf courses all over the world to give you the information you need as soon as you step on the course. A GPS is ideal for golfers who prefer to look at the layout of the hole and plan their shots accordingly.
For golfers who prefer a handheld GPS unit, we recommend the Bushnell Phantom GPS. This device is easy to use and read with large numbers and comes pre-loaded with 36,000 golf courses. It is also the first GPS to include a magnetic mount so it’s always right where you need it.
For a more advanced GPS, check out the SkyCaddie SX500 GPS. It has extremely detailed maps of 35,000 golf courses with a variety of detailed views to see the course like never before. The SX500 has a color screen and orients itself to your position on the course to truly plan your next shot from a bird’s eye view.
The golf course is the perfect place for wearable technology like a GPS watch. It fits right on your wrist, it is not intrusive to your game, and you have all the information of a GPS with you at all times. They also offer a level of versatility for off the golf course that perfectly fits an active lifestyle. GPS watches are great for golfers who want versatile, wearable technology that can help them on the golf course.
The Garmin Approach S62 Premium GPS Golf watch is one of the most popular models available today. It is the ideal golfing partner that doubles as your everyday watch. Pre-loaded with 41,000 course maps, it provides all the distances you need along with smart notifications, customizable apps, and a rechargeable battery.
Bushnell’s iON2 GPS watch is another great option for golfers who prefer the convenience of a watch. An easy-to-read display shows distances to the front, center, and back of the greens as well as four hazard distances per hole so you can plan every shot.
