Callaway GPSync Golf Watch Review

I must admit I have bought and used quite many golf GPS watches over the years. However, I never used most of them beyond a couple of watches. In most cases, the watches end up breaking down or do not leave up to my expectations and so I have to get rid of them. The story has been the same for a couple of years now, but this changed when I discovered the Callaway GPSync Golf Watch recently.

When I first bought this watch, I was very skeptical about it as I was almost sure that I will have abandoned it in less than a month. However, once I started using it, I was proven wrong. Unlike the other watches that I had used in the past this watch gave a depth of information that I never expected any golf watch had the capability to give. To cut the long story short my golfing experience was revolutionized and now am always looking forward to the next day out to the course. Besides from the real help that I get from the watch it is also very fashionable, and I wear it almost every single day.
