Golf GPS Watch vs Apps
I'm sure there some of you Fanatics who play Golf, perhaps enough to have a sensible discussion around the subject.

What do you guys use, phone apps or smart watches?

I recently downloaded a app called Golfshot, seems to be incredibly well designed, I also wear a Garmin 235 so perhaps there will be some integration, however, I'm not entirely sure.

I do feel that having essential information available on your wrist is convenient, and won't affect pace of play...

OK, while I searched Google for the best rated apps, Hole19 was one was up there, much like Golfshot. I'll check it out on FB, thank you.

RE: Golf GPS Watch vs Apps
Hey bud,

So I have been down this road for a while...I got the Apple Watch and use multiple apps like Hole 19, mscorecard, GolfPad etc on it.

I almost got the Garmin but looked at the overall price and versatility...and I could not justify a golf only watch for that price. I use my normal dress watch everyday and prefer them also so the golf watch would have been wasted.

The apps work very well and you can use the garmin app on some watches also, not full features but you ge the main ones which you enjoy.

GolfHub on Facebook is a nice group, get stuff for great prices and also get great advice too.

2011 Mercedes-Benz C250 CDi BE Avantgarde - Debben stock: 150.5wkw/540wnm New figures coming soon...

2010 Titanium Silver BMW 320d Exclusive E90 LCi 149wkw/475wnm

I also use golf19 with my iwatch. Very happy with it, this is also the free app version. Premium looks great but very pricey per annumn

RE: Golf GPS Watch vs Apps
Thanks guys,

I watched some Hole19 reviews last night, looks really friendly.

I think the appeal for me with Golfshot is the fact that you can load your exact clubs with the distances you play, I'm not yet sure if this has any value as I think it only offers shot recommendations on premium. I therefore doubt the free version will equal the functionality of Hole19.

@AshG108, I have to agree with you, if you don't already own a smart watch which you wear as a daily, it makes little sense to go buy one just for Golf.

If the weather allows, I'll head out for a round this weekend and give both Golfshot and Hole19 a try.
