What a Match
These watches combine fitness, golf
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
