SkyCaddie’s revolutionary new handheld GPS device, SX500, claims to be the most powerful, most accurate, and most feature-packed distance measuring device in golf.
Rocketing into the UK at the end of August, the SX500 incorporates SkyCaddie PinPoint® technology to give accurate distances to even the trickiest pin positions, Dynamic HoleVueTM which continuously re-orients the entire hole map from your exact position, and a 5” full HD touchscreen to give you the best and sharpest view in golf. The device also features IntelliGreen® Pro technology to tell you everything you need to know about every green, including tiers, slopes, and false-fronts (if only it could putt for us as well!?!).
The rechargeable Li-Polymer battery means you can use the device for 36 holes without any problems, and the built-in Wifi lets you download the latest exclusive SkyCaddie course updates on demand, without the need to connect to a computer. All that technology is great but how will it perform when tested against the elements? Well, the SX500 is highly water-resistant extremely grippy even in the worst weather.
For practice rounds and casual golf, SkyCaddie SX500’s unique Dynamic RangeVue® with Club Ranges feature makes strategic play easier than ever. Simply enter your personal club-by-club hitting distances and the device will show in-play club selection suggestions tailored to your game- very impressive. The only thing missing Auto-Shoot- the device’s ability to play for us!
If you’re a player who likes to track your stats, then you can use the SX500’s Digital Scorecard feature to track total putts and fairways hit.
And there’s more. Shot Distance Measurement helps you track how far you have just hit the ball, Target List View gives you a quick list of all the targets ahead of you on the hole, and Tee Box Selection, Gender Selection, Dual Green Support, Yards or Metres option, and a North Indicator are all available as well. For the Instagrammers amongst you, the SX500 even has a 13-megapixel camera- time to get selfie-ready.
Available in the UK from late August 2018, the SX500 will cost £379.95 including a year’s pre-paid Birdie membership. Covering over 99% of golf courses in Great Britain & Ireland, SX500 is pre-loaded with more than 35,000 ground-verified, error-corrected SkyCaddie golf course maps.
