Reading reviews is the most reliable way to find a good golf GPS watch, but it is also important to know what to look out for since some may not be reliable. A good review should be from someone who has used the product since they have first-hand information or an expert because he will have an unbiased opinion. For it to be reliable for all golfers whether they are pros or armatures, it should contain the following relevant sections:

  • Features and Specifications: This is probably the most critical section, and it provides technical details about the watch. It should discuss in depth things such as the number of pre-loaded courses and how to download more, battery life, software/PC compatibility and any other additional features. It is also worth mentioning the weight and color of the device.
  • Advantages/Benefits: Although these watches are all designed for the same purpose each one has some features or specifications that give it an edge over the others. These advantages and their benefits are also worth knowing before buying the Golf GPS watch, and so a review should also cover them in detail.
  • Disadvantages: Itis difficult to find a Golf GPS watch that does not have at least one demerit, and so the review should also mention it so that a buyer can be aware before making the decision to buy it or not. A disadvantage does not necessarily make the watch less attractive but only shows what the manufacturer could have done better and so a potential customer deserves to know.

Different GPS reviews may cover many things but when most people read them will be looking for the above important points. However the most important thing is to provide as much information as possible, and it should also be unbiased.
