When is Black Friday?
Black Friday gets, officially, underway on Friday 24th November. However, companies have already started introducing offers to the market, with lots of golf gear available at reduced rates. Along with Black Friday on the 24th, there is also Cyber Monday on 27th November, which is another great opportunity to purchase gifts for Christmas, or for yourself.
Why should I buy a GPS golf watch on Black Friday?
One of the main benefits of a good GPS watch is the simplicity. They allow you to simply glance at your wrist to get a yardage rather than have to fiddle about with a clunky GPS device or laser rangefinder.
But it is not the only factor at play because the growth in wearable technology in golf has taken huge leaps of late. Brands like Garmin, Bushnell, Shot Scope, Sky Caddie and more, make GPS watches to not only help you get the right yardage, but to also give more information on the course, track your shots, provide fitness features and be versatile enough to use both on and off the golf course.
Because of all this, golf watches don't come cheap. You can expect to pay anywhere from $60 to $500 dollars for a golf smart watch, depending on what kind of technology you're looking for. Obviously, if you're looking for a watch that has all the bells and whistles, then you're going to be paying a lot more for the technology, and so for that reason, you may want to wait for Black Friday, before purchasing your GPS golf watch. As such we will be updating this page with all the best deals as we approach the day itself late in November.
Where should I buy a golf GPS watch?
In the US, some of the best golf retailers include PGA Tour Superstore, Rock Bottom Golf, Walmart and, of course, Amazon. In the UK, the best golf retailers include Scottsdale Golf, American Golf, Sports Direct and Amazon. Amazon can be tricky to navigate (check out our best Amazon Black Friday golf deals) but they're a fantastic retailer for golf watches, lasers and balls in particular.
How to choose a golf watch
So you have decided you want to buy a GPS watch. 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.
Does Garmin do Black Friday?
Garmin is one of the biggest technology brands on the planet and, along with their excellent golf watches, they also offer lots of different products like sat navs and trackers. Currently, on their site, products are reduced in the upcoming Black Friday sale, with various models also available through various retailers.
