Any advise on which is the most accurate and user friendly GPS unit out in the market? Skycaddie, garmin etc

Watch will be more convenient but I assumed the handheld units are more accurate?

Main features to look for:

1. Actual distance with slope adjustments. Then i won't need my laser rangefinder.
2. Pin location selection.
3. Distance to hazards.
4. Courses in Asia.

Watches and GPS units are as accurate,

Only the garmin G series will show the course layout and distances to hazards

Yes I believe the Garmin G8 has slope included. Not sure about other models.

Anyone aware of any watch GPS that has a slope version?

Yes. The new garmin G8 have slope factored in

My g6 doesn't. But it's accurate enough. At the end of the day. The GPS is jus a guide. Still need to exercise some form of personal judgement.

Hope one day someone will invent a GPS that also measures wind speed and direction 

Haha
