What to consider when buying a GPS watch on Black Friday
So you have decided you want to buy a GPS watch this Black Friday. Obviously there are lots of good deals out there as we have shown above, but what are some of the things you need to consider when purchasing? Let's take a look.
If you have decided you want a GPS watch, now you need to think about what features are important to you. If you want to keep things simple, and just want standard GPS information like front, middle, back yardages, then a budget option will do the job.
However if you want more detail on distances, on the course itself, hazard information, or if you want a model with a larger screen, then you can spend a little more to get these things. Some also can help you record your score, track your shots, and many also have fitness features for off the golf course as well.
This is an important factor to consider. Do you want to be able to use the watch anywhere? If so many brands make models that can be used on and off the golf course because of the range of features, and overall styling.
Finally we should mention budget. If you want a simple model then there are budget-friendly options but there are deals to be had on models at every price point. Once you have worked out the which features you want, and how much versatility, then you can decide which models fit into your budget.
