Hi fellow golfers,

     Can you guys give me recommendations on a good golf GPS watch to get? I browsed Garmin Approach S6, Approach S4 and Golf Buddy WT5 but still not sure which one is good. Able to advise? Thanks in advance!

I'm using Golf Buddy WT5. It works well for me. Battery life is about 18 holes maybe add another 9 maximum.

I also have Garmin G6 - this is a little crappy especially in my home club Tanjung Puteri, B and C Course yardages. Works well on A Course though.

I used to use Sky Caddie and in my opinion, they are one of the best in terms of reliability. I just stop subscribing after paying for 5 years. 

On Garmin S6, my friend has it but battery life was not so good; 1 round max. with colors.

I got a S6 and battery life was good enough for more than 1 round. I don’t know exactly whether if it can go for a second round because I have never gone off on a consecutive. In any case, yardage was accurate on the courses I have played so far. I do not turn on Bluetooth until round is started. Otherwise the light weight and design were perfect for me. The Garmin Connect software gave me some early headaches but I fixed it with some Internet help. I would suppose S60 would be good as it built on the S6 but I got the latter second hand which made it a better buy as far as value is concerned. The form factor is a strength
