Last time, I bought a Nikon Coolshot 20 for my range. But still, want another GPS to compare accuracy. Was thinking about picking up a GPS watch for this upcoming season. I don't want to break the bank, but was thinking it would be useful to have a GPS watch to track shot distances and give general yardage. Looked at a few reviews online and I like the cost/benefit features of the Bushnell Neo XS. Anyone else out there owns a GPS watch? Impressions? Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks!

I bought the Neo xo after looking at the reviews, but when I was out there with my friends and compared that with my friends garmin the yardage on the neo was up to 20 yards off on the tee boxes, the distances got closer in the fairway but was still off. I now have a garmin approach x40 and love it, accurate and very easy to measure shot. Got mine for $149 when golfsmith closed. I would stick with garmin. The x40 is on garmin web for $199, you will not be disappointed, just try it on in a store because they have 2 different band size depending on your wrist size

I use the neo xs watch from bushnell. Haven’t had the same issues mentioned above. I don’t particularly like wearing it though so I usually strap it to my push cart or steering wheel when I play.

I also have a laser on the bag and get similar distances when I compare. Nice feature of the neo xs is it also gives distances to hazards and in some cases the distance to carry those hazards.

Nope. The range finder works just fine and that's all I need ... unless it's foggy

QUOTED  want another GPS to compare accuracy
QUOTED 
I played up at Coeur d'Alene a couple years ago. Had the required forecaddie giving yardages. Also had GPS on the cart, but the parking areas for some holes were so remote from the tees that it wasn't always useful. Also had my Bushnell.

So in many cases lots of (competing) info. Turned out to be almost a case of TMI - there were some instances when I got 2 or 3 different reads for the same shot, so often wound up being uncertain about the yardage to play.

Find what works for you and stick with it.

I use a Garmin S1 that is 4+ years old. Charge usually lasts for 27-36 holes. Distance to the front/middle/back of the green only, no measurements to hazards or to the actual pin. Works well within those limitations.

The goal is long and straight! But on the many times I cannot seem to hit them straight, I at least want to hit them long!

S1 now no longer appears to be produced, you have any suggestions instead?

So if there is a foggy, maybe golf GPS is better?

Thanks. That's a good suggestion, I also like having a multi-purpose GPS wristwatch.

Neo XS or Neo Ion, I am quite confused between the two products. It seems that Neo XS has been published for some time. I see many votes for NEO Ion, https://www.ubergolf.net/golf-gps-reviews/ what do you think about this?
