The Garmin Approach S62 is undeniably one of the best GPS golf watches money can buy. It's a stylish watch that can be worn on and off the golf course. In watch mode, the battery will last up to a fortnight, and in golf mode, the battery life is up to a staggering 20 hours.

The ION ELITE is Bushnell's color touchscreen watch which is packed with most of the features of a more premium watch on the market but comes in at a much more stomachable price, especially with this Black Friday saving.

The ION ELITE is loaded with over 38,000 golf courses and has an easy-to-read display that shows distances to the front center and back of the green. It is also the first watch to feature Bushnell's patented Slope Technology, which I found to be very useful on the course, as the slope can make nearly a club difference on some holes you play.

An impressive feature is the dynamic distances the watch displays, as HoleView allows you to see the hole and give you the precise distance from any point, along with the green mapping which gives you a distance based on your angle to the pin.

Was £179.00 - Now £129.00 at Clubhouse Golf.

The quality of a Garmin Golf watch at a great price, the Approach S12 is the easy-to-use watch in the Garmin lineup that is practical for beginners or the more seasoned golfer. If, like myself, you like to keep things simple and easy to use, this is a great watch.

The Approach S12 has a round 1.3" high-resolution display which is sunlight readable and sports a big number display mode to make reading yardages easy when on the course. The watch has a remarkable battery life in GPS mode of up to 30 hours, making it easier than ever to play round after round without having to charge your watch.

The S12 comes with an outstanding 42,000 preloaded golf courses, and not only that, you can wirelessly update the courses you play most often to make sure you get the most out of your round.

This is a lot of GPS golf watch for the money – and you can get this GolfBuddy Aim W12 for less than £200 this Black Friday. I particularly liked the green contouring feature, especially when hitting your approach shots, as going for the pin is not always the best strategy.

Certainly, on the long putts, it also gives tremendous peace of mind. If you're like me, you start doubting yourself when it comes to reading greens. Green undulation displays the gradation of the slope of the green through different colors – blue being the lowest point of the incline and red being the highest.

The graphics are pretty good, and you get a hazard readout while you can manually alter the pin placement when it comes to getting the clubbing right on those all-important approaches.

New to the W12 is the ability to create a point on the hole where you can aim, and the watch will update with distance data from that point to the hole and also the distance to that point.

In golf mode, you will get two rounds (10 hours) out of your battery, so not the longest-lasting power source, but that's not a problem.

There is also a pedometer option for those fitness-conscious golfers and an impressive course directory with free wireless updates available via Bluetooth with the smartphone app.

The Garmin Approach S62's little brother is almost $200 cheaper, so as you might expect, not quite as feature-laden, but it still does an impressive list of jobs.

Apart from the all-important job of measuring distance like every other GPS watch, the S42 automatically records each shot so you can assess just how far each shot traveled, which is a huge help when selecting clubs.

It will also count your steps and monitor your sleep patterns, plus you can sync it with your phone so you'll get notifications for texts and missed calls.

In GPS mode, the battery will last a very healthy 15 hours and style-wise, is as classy-looking as you would expect from Garmin.

Skycaddie has gone big with this offering and the screen is noticeably larger than the average GPS watch. In fact, it has the largest and brightest color touchscreen (1.39in) with full HD graphics and comes preloaded with more than 35,000 courses. It even allows you to choose your tee box, gender, and yards or meters, for additional accuracy.

Like the brand's larger GPS devices, the LX5C lets you zoom and pan and is constantly calculating yardages to hidden hazards, so you know how far you've got to carry or lay up short of them.

The IntelliGreen tech provides exact shapes of greens for distances to the front, back, and any point in between from your angle of approach.

With SkyCaddie, you can trust the yardages as the GPS brand updates every UK golf course map on foot using survey-quality equipment across thousands of points per course.

The Garmin S70 is the perfect watch to help improve your game on and away from the course. The watch has a plethora of features to keep you busy pre and post-round to better your game including HIIT, yoga, running, swimming, and more, as well as keeping you on top of your health with heart, sleep, and hydration tracking.

This all looks great and it is, but the main use of the watch is golf and this is where the S70 excels. With more than 43,000 preloaded courses it's going to be harder to find a course the watch it doesn't work at than one it does.

The touchscreen AMOLED display is super easy to read and is up there with the best I've used, with the green and course views looking the way they do, they could be on the latest PGA TOUR game and you wouldn't question it.

The style of the watch makes a perfect partner for any outfit and is super comfortable, I didn't even know I was wearing it at one point.

For me, the yardage adjustment is a standout feature. A watch has always lacked the ability to adapt to its surroundings but now it can. It considers the environmental changes and the elevation of the green for super precise distances. With the green contour data if you're good enough it shows you the perfect place to land for the best results.

Available in grey or black, the American company is well-known in this kind of marketplace, and the ION Edge will do all the basics to a high standard, which is all you really need, especially if you are playing in competitions.

It includes a shot-distance calculator, and all your stats and scores can be uploaded to the Bushnell Golf Mobile App for analysis purposes.

For those on a budget – it's available for less than £100 at the time of writing – this French-made GPS golf watch is a great option.

The important stuff – distance to the front/center/back of greens plus yardages to hazards is easily accessible.

Unfortunately, the Ult-G is not a touchscreen watch, but there are just four buttons required to fulfill its potential, and the battery life matches most of its more expensive GPS golf watch competitors.

OK, so it might not strictly be a watch, but this compact, lightweight, and easy-to-use clip-on golf GPS performs the same function as one with its ability to accurately measure yardages for shots from anywhere on the course you’re playing.

Other features of the G12 include Green View, providing you with each green’s true shape from wherever you are on the course, and a digital scorecard to track Stroke Play, Stableford, Skins, and Match Play with adjustable handicaps. The battery also lasts an impressive 30 hours in GPS mode.

Black Friday Golf Watch Deals: Buying Guide

Black Friday sales can be a little tricky to navigate with a plethora of retailers all vying for your business as the holiday season approaches. To help keep you focussed we have suggested a few considerations to bear in mind so you come out the other end with a watch to save you shots!

Budget

Just because items are plastered with sale banners and claims of huge discounts, it’s worth doing your due diligence and making sure the advertised savings appear genuine. It’s also important to set yourself a budget, just as you would when shopping at any other time of the year. Even with healthy savings, a golf watch is an expensive piece of equipment, so make sure you consider the cost, not just the savings.

Timing

This is perhaps one of the trickiest aspects of the Black Friday sales to get right, as when they’re gone -they’re gone! Discounts across the sales period are constantly fluctuating depending on which items are flying off the shelf and which ones are struggling to shift. In the same way as you might approach buying a flight, we suggest monitoring prices for a short period to give you an indication if they are likely to continue to drop or if they will remain constant until the stock is gone. The very best deals can often be found closer to the day itself, however, you do run the risk of your number one pick being sold out with this approach.

Ease of use

When buying a GPS watch, you need to think about what is most important to you. There are many GPS watches on the market that will give you the yardages to the front, back, and middle of the green as that’s about all some people want. However, many watches offer more complex functions such as shot-tracking capability and enhanced distance information, including yardages to specific hole features. So it’s important to make sure you know what you want out of your watch as nowadays they do much more than just tell a golfer the yardage.

Number of Courses

For a club golfer who plays at their home course week in and week out, this may not be a worry for you, although it may be worth checking that where you play is one of the preloaded courses included. For golfers who like to travel around and play an array of golf courses, opting for a model with thousands of preloaded courses will provide you with more value for money.

Accuracy

Modern golf watches are becoming increasingly accurate, most to within one or two yards, rivaling some of the best laser rangefinders. The ShotScope V3 claims an accuracy of 30 cm, which will be sufficient for even the most accurate of golfers, and the Bushnell ION ELITE features slope technology making yardages even more precise as it accounts for how much higher or lower you are to the pin.

Battery life

When looking at a watch’s battery life, you’ll need to consider how often you play. If you play once a week, most watches will be fine, whereas if you play three to four times a week, you may want something that will last without charging it every night, like the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 or the Garmin Approach S12.

Style

You have to love the look of what watch you’re wearing, and it needs to feel comfortable on your wrist at the same time. Many brands design highly versatile models that look great on and off of the golf course so you’re bound to find one that matches your style and personality.

Golf watches are a quick and easy way to get accurate yardages on the course.

Black Friday Golf Watch Deals: FAQs

So, be sure to shop these outstanding deals soon, before it’s too late…

How long does Black Friday last?

Officially, Black Friday is one day when retailers slash the price of their products allowing customers to make major savings they otherwise wouldn’t at any other time of the year. However, Black Friday is now much more of a weekend event, culminating on the following Monday – often referred to as Cyber Monday. This year the best deals will run between Friday 24 November and Monday 27 November.

You can expect the most popular items to receive more modest discounts of 20-30%, and less popular items to receive heavier reductions of 70% plus. Items will likely be discounted further as the official day draws closer.

Is a golf watch worth it?

Golf watches are one of the best investments in golf and are certainly worth it. Whether you want something affordable or you want to splash the cash, there is something for every golfer on the market. Thanks to the advances in technology, watches can now provide a vast amount of data that will help improve your game.

Watches can show you hazards and distances to doglegs, they can also follow patterns in your game and show you what clubs you were hitting the last time you played the hole and suggest which club to hit. They have come on leaps and bounds in recent years and are now more than just a gadget with yardages on.

How do I choose a golf watch?

When choosing a golf watch, there are many factors to consider, and the ones that best suit you’re golf game should be a top priority. Every golfer will be slightly different as they may have a certain style or budget in mind that they want. When choosing, consider these factors price, ease of use, course collection size, accuracy, battery life, design, and screen quality.
