Our top distance-measuring devices help you play smarter
FEATURES: A three-inch color display shows measurements to any point on a hole. Without touching a button, users can view three screens (hole, green and scorecard) by rotating the device from the portrait to landscape positions. The SGX has a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 14 hours.
MAPPING: To minimize errors, SkyGolf has mapped nearly 30,000 courses (worldwide) by foot. Its team of mappers, who are trained to walk each course as a professional caddie would, uses survey-grade equipment to derive measurements. Maps are verified with proprietary ground mapping data.
HOT: The non-touchscreen is spectacularly intuitive, and because a golfer's hands are generally sweaty and dirty, the screen is more likely to stay clean throughout the round. A toggle below the screen allows you to measure more precisely any point on the hole.
NOT: Unlimited course downloads is cool; paying annually isn't.
