8 of the best golf GPS watches you can buy right now

Watches

If you're not already using a Distance Measuring Device (DMD), then we've got to ask: why not?

Over the last decade or so, DMDs have become an integral part of the game at all levels. Whether it's a hand-held rangefinder or a wearing piece of GPS tech, these devices can help you to play the game quicker and with better information. They'll also help you to better understand your own game and how far you hit each of your clubs.

Essentially, they take much of the guesswork out of the game, making it infinitely more fun and rewarding to play.

GPS watches are especially popular. They're light, easy to use, slot onto your wrist in place of your day-to-day watch and, for the most part, are pretty affordable.

Below, we've handpicked eight of the best GPS watches you can buy right now.
