NOW the Garmin comes into it’s own as once you hit your drive, you simply press a button and walk towards your ball and it counts the yardage.

known for the wonderful elegance of their creations, maybe once in a while loses that elusive magic. Surprisingly makers Jaquet Droz, for the first time I can ever remember in my experience, has done just that . . . .
there are some Rolex models around that are very different and do look good, but you rarely if ever see them. Instead you’re fed the same old diet of that boring Submariner this and submariner that.
Built in to this model is an automatic clock used to count the number of strokes played and do retrograde indicating of the number of holes played – very clever. It can even manage players handicaps, so a truly bespoke function model indeed.
Motorola apparently are saying they are committed to making it like a conventional watch, circular, very few if any buttons or pushers
Both models I’ve selected are around the same price (approx £85 in the UK) and for me represent excellent value for money without gimmicks and are two of the most practical and sensible Timex models I’ve seen for a while
To get a watch of this functionality and looks at such a price is probably unmatched by any other manufacturer from what I’ve seen. The competition tends to be composed of either very cluttered dial designs or very much more expensive prices or both.
Now OK I’ve already got a splitting headache coming on, yet it does work in an odd way (if you’re partial to migraines) as it uses a quite conventional 3 or is it 4 dial display, but in a slightly different manner.
