I have had one for a few years now. The jolt is a nice feature. Easy to scope out anything in the distance - bunkers, trees, etc. for layups and tee shots. Battery seems to last forever also.
I would avoid getting one with the slope feature - they are not allowed in tournament play and it kinda seems lame; you gotta leave some of the challenges to yourself out there!
and that was even better than a range finder. Constant GPS yardages to front back center whenever I glanced down. I assume there are apps like it on all smart watches, and that would seem to be an easy alternative (and I would say better user experience) at a comparable price point, even if you only use the watch for golf.
rangefinder, and i have the gps (the little square one)
I use the rangefinder more often because the gps is just a pain in the ass to charge. However, in my opinion, whichever you're looking for, you cant go wrong with Bushnell. My rangefinder is an older one and they replaced it once when it broke.
Gives you a lot of great features...stabilizes the image to do away with shaky viewfinder images for distant flagsticks...vibration when locked on... adjusts for up and down hill slopes....crystal clear optics... compact size, smaller and lighter than Bushnell I had before, and slips easily into your pocket.
Downside: it’s expensive.
I got it as a Christmas present.
is what I have used for 4 years...get the batteries from Amazon because the CR2s are $21 for 2 at CVS while you can get an 8 pack for $13.99 from Amazon for an "off" brand.
