What we say...

Our in-depth Shot Scope G5 GPS watch review found it to be easy-to-use super stylish, and exceptional value for money.

As Shot Scope say it may be time to switch up your style with the G5 GPS, which is one of the best golf watches this year. Just as your golf swing is unique to you, so is the G5!  Build a golf watch to suit your style with customizable color combinations. Choose your preferred color of watch case as well as two straps in a color of your choice. Lightweight and easy to use, the Shot Scope G5 has the capability to enhance both your style and performance on the golf course. 

Shot Scope have introduced the G5, which is a modernized GPS watch that revitalizes how technology meets style on the golf course. The new watch face, with multiple display layouts as well as a range of interchangeable colored straps, allows golfers to customize the G5 to their unique preferences.

Ready to play out of the box, with the option to select an extra-large unit display, the G5 is designed with ease of use at its core. Shot Scope deliver the G5 as a great option for the player that wants a customizable, functional GPS watch.

For the first time, golfers are given the opportunity to build their own watch – one that suits both their game and their style. You can create your unique golf watch with the choice of two-colour straps included with every order, simply removing one strap with a quick slide of the bar, to replace it with another: creating a new look every time.

The G5 has a new digital scorecard feature allowing players to keep score as they go. With dynamic yardages to the front, middle, and back of greens as well as distances to hazards, doglegs, and layup points, golfers can utilize the impressive depth of information to build an efficient strategy for each hole.

The G5 keeps simplicity at the heart of its design, allowing golfers to focus on their game whilst providing accurate distances on every hole, across 36,000 courses worldwide. Plus, the added benefit of switching the watch face to a clock design once finished – for a sleek off-course offering.

“Building on from the success of the G3, the launch of the G5 was the natural progression for us. We understand that not everyone wants to track their data, so the comprehensive GPS offering from the G5 is perfect for those starting their journey with our products, or for those just looking for a device to aid course management,”

“The choice and versatility of this watch really enhances its stylistic nature; all whilst sporting impressive technology that informs golfers on how to best manage their round.”
