To judge its' shot distance accuracy, I laid out two 300' tape measures end to end (200 yds) and further broke that down to every 25 yds. I gave each distance 30 secs prior to recording the number to give the gps time to adjust to my movements. I ran the experiment 3 times.
The following 25yd increments were recorded as follows:
So as you can see, even the Bushnell Lasers are only accurate to +/- 1 yd. For the extra $250 they want for it, I decided to buy the watch and spend the extra $250 on a new driver. The watch appears to be more accurate the longer the distance. I found it very easy to use and won't miss having to put the laser up to my eye, hold it very steady to make any more measurements. I am not a good enough golfer that 1 or 2 yds is going to make a big difference in my score.
The early assesment of the Neo X is very good. The battery charged very quickly and it was easy to set up. I then went to my golf course to give it an on course workout. It was easy to use, quick, and very accurate, within a couple of yards. I used the shot measuring tool several times, again, easy and accurate. Sometimes when the green is close to the next teebox, the watch will advance to the next hole when you approach the green. A real easy push of a button and its back to the hole you are on.
I have poor old man eyesight (I wear 2.5x reading glasses for books) but the watch is very easy for me to read without glasses.
I played for 3 hours with extra button pushing, to test the functions of the watch, the battery still showed fully charged.
At this time I highly recommend. As I get more use out of it at different courses I will update this review for reliability and durability.
The watch is a bit bulky, but it is light enough that it does not interfere with my swing. Indeed, after the first few days I hardly noticed that I was wearing the watch.
I golf without glasses, which means my near vision is poor; however, the text on the watch face is large enough for me to read. Your vision may differ, so try to look at one of these in your local pro shop or sporting goods store.
I have compared the watch's distance findings against my partners' and competitors' lasers and other types of GPS rangefinders and my readings always seem to be within 1-2 yards of theirs.
I formerly used a laser rangefinder and sometimes I miss its ability to measure the distance to the pin within a yard or so; however, I must admit that I and the guys I play with really can't target our approach shots within a yard or two of the pin, so the front/center/back of the green distances revealed by the watch are quite sufficient for club-selection purposes. Also, using the laser rangefinder was much more time consuming than using the watch.
I also had a pocket GPS but find that this watch is much easier and more convenient to use--just a quick glance at my wrist and an occasional push of a button to measure shot distance or the distance to hazards (the watch automatically sets itself to the hole being played). With the watch showing how far it is to the front, center and back of the green, I save quite a bit of time not having to scout for distance markers and to do the mental calculations to correct for pin placement.
Is this watch a necessity? Not really. Is it a truly great convenience? Absolutely. Would I go back to a laser or pocket GPS rangefinder? Based on the watch's performance to date, no.
UPDATE: Thought about looking for an update for the software but following Bushnell's instruction gets me no where!!! The whole Bushnell/igolf web support is really poor! Will be sending e-mail to Bushnell and maybe that willhelp.
