When I do golf equipment reviews or golf accessory reviews I typically do a “first look” post to get the word out that I’ve received a product for testing and give those who submitted the product a little air time. That gives them a little golf blog love and buys me time to spend testing the unit. I do spend a lot of time testing, unlike other fly-by-night sites who test from their kitchen table or by hitting three range balls.
This time around I’m compelled to do an intermediate post on the new TomTom Golfer Premium GPS watch. I already did my first look of the TomTom golf GPS watchand I’m not quite ready to post a full review because a single round is definitely not enough. I was so impressed with this unit during my first round I have to post about it.
The TomTom golf GPS watch is not overly large like other golf GPS watches. So it is actually wearable for those who can wear a watch and play. I’m not a watch guy, so I played a couple of holes with it on, then just attached it to my golf bag.
The yardages were quick and accurate, and I love the way they display with the black background. Below you can see the yards to the front, back, and middle:
This GPS watch not only gives yardages, but has all sorts of other great features. It will track scores, show green view, and even show hazards. See below? The first hole has water all the way down the right side:
And below is a shot of the score tracking. I made par on the par-5 first hole.
I’m not done testing and have yet to post my full review, but now that I have a round under my belt I already know the TomTom Premium golf GPS watch is superb. Stay tuned for my full review.
This is painful. There are two feet of snow on the grass here and the golf courses are closed for probably 2-3 months. I just got this TomTom Golfer Premium Golf GPS Watch in for review and all I can do is charge it up, put it on my wrist, stare at it in my office and dream of being on a golf course.
Here’s a photo of the unit on my wrist. As close as I can get to testing right now #snow
I guess I could put on my snow boots and go for a walk round the golf course with it to check yardages…
So here’s the first look at least for now, and the unit and it’s accessories. I hope to review this golf GPS watch soon. Maybe I’ll have to make a trip to a warmer area, or maybe global warming can be real and the snow will melt soon.
First impressions are that this is perhaps the first golf GPS watch I’ve received, and there have been many, that is actually small enough to wear comfortably.
