What a Match

These watches com­bine fit­ness, golf

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Golf Life -

If you’re like a lot of us, you don’t run your fit­ness life through a trainer – you use a de­vice on your wrist in­stead. Count­ing steps, log­ging run­ning dis­tance, cal­cu­lat­ing calo­ries burned:You can track it all in one place. So why not do the same with your golf game? The fol­low­ing prod­ucts al­low you to get your dis­tances and see how many steps you took for the day, all in one place. – Keely Levins and Brit­tany Ro­mano


The Ap­ple Watch isn’t golf-cen­tric, but down­load an app like the Ping Golf Work­out and fuse your fit­ness with your golf. It tracks your steps, heart rate and golf stats, plus mon­i­tors your swing tempo and gives you dis­tances.


It cou­ples fit­ness-band ben­e­fits – like read­ing your heart rate, count­ing steps and calo­ries burned – with dis­tances and au­to­matic shot de­tec­tion. When you have an in­com­ing call or text, it vi­brates to alert you.


The ana­log face dis­plays when the watch is not in use, adding to the tra­di­tional look. A stain­less-steel body and crys­tal sap­phire face make it harder to scratch. With An­droid Wear func­tion­al­ity and the TrackMyGolf App, you can an­a­lyse your swing in 3-D and re­view speed, grip po­si­tion, im­pact an­gle and swing path.


This An­droid-Wear­pow­ered smart­watch gives sub­tle no­ti­fi­ca­tions that won’t take away from the clas­sic Tag lux­ury de­sign or dis­rupt your round. The GolfShot app pro­vides dis­tances, shot track­ing and club rec­om­men­da­tions. It also can score in dif­fer­ent for­mats.


This watch takes care of your ev­ery golf-stat-track­ing and dis­tance-mea­sur­ing need. Plus, you can use it to track of­f­course ac­tiv­i­ties like bike-rid­ing and hik­ing. Down­load the app on your phone to store your data, and mea­sure your im­prove­ment in all dis­ci­plines.
