SkyCaddie launch luxury LX5C GPS golf watch

Published:

The SkyCaddie LX5C GPS golf watch takes everything we loved about the LX5 and puts it in a luxury ceramic package. 

The beautiful new scratch-resistant, hard-wearing ceramic bezel ensures your GPS watch holds its colour and retains that ‘new’ look for far longer than a traditional bezel.

With a real trend towards ceramic bezels in the luxury watch market, SkyCaddie believe this is the ideal watch for on and off the golf course.

SkyCaddie's LX5C GPS watch has a 1.39-inch HD touch screen.

LX5C has all of the functionality of LX5 and is the closest you’ll get to having one of SkyCaddie’s high-performance SX400 and SX500 rangefinders on your wrist.

It has the largest and brightest colour touchscreen (1.39in) with full HD graphics  and comes preloaded with more than 35,000 course maps. It even allows you to choose which tee box you’re playing from, your gender, and whether you’d prefer distances in yards or metres, 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 front, back and any point in between from your angle of approach.

You know you can trust the yardages because SkyCaddie are the only golf GPS brand to create and update every UK golf course map on foot using survey-quality equipment across thousands of points per course.

LX5C is also great for stats fans, not only providing your score, but giving fairways hit and missed, Greens In Regulation and total putts.

For fitness fanatics SkyCaddie have included heart rate monitor along with a steps and distance tracker, while the watch can be personalised to your style with multiple different faces and comes with two different silicone straps.

“The LX5C is the most powerful and attractive GPS rangefinder golf has ever seen,” said James Holmes, SkyCaddie General Manager UK & Europe. “Adding the ceramic bezel adds yet more desirability to what was already golf’s most-praised smart watch of 2020.

“It looks fabulous both on and off the golf course, but the LX5C is about way more than just good looks. Both versions of the LX5 exist to save you shots on the golf course, more than any other golf watch, pure and simple.”

The SkyCaddie LX5C costs £349.95 and joins the LX5 (£299.95), SX400 (£299.95) and SX500 (£379.95) in the 2020 family.
