Garmin S62 Vs Shot Scope X5 Golf Watch Comparison
Not all golf watches are made equal.
Take a look at what I mean in the following Shot Scope X5/Garmin Approach S62 comparison.
Garmin S62 Overview
“The Garmin S62 has a ton of golf and fitness tracking features including profiles for running, cycling, swimming and gym training.”
These are all features that the Shot Scope X5 doesn’t have. The S62 can also display notifications from your smartphone which is handy when you’re on the course.
Speaking of the course, the S62’s golf features include pin positioning, green view, plays like distances, 43,000 preloaded courses, layup/dogleg distances, hazard distances, custom target distances, swing tempo training and more.
Another thing I liked about the S62 compared to the Shot Scope X5 was the battery life. The S62 battery life in GPS mode lasts about 20 hours compared to about 9 hours for the Shot Scope X5.
Shot Scope X5 Overview
“The Shot Scope X5 has your basic golf features like green distance readings, shot distance readings, 36,000 preloaded courses, automatic GPS course tracking, individual club stats, hazard distances and a digital scorecard.”
Plus it functions as a pedometer and comes with different watch faces.
The Shot Scope app is also very useful as it records your course data and breaks down your stats so you can see exactly how you performed and how you can improve.
But the Shot Scope X5 comes with club trackers that you attach to your grips and can be pretty finicky. It also has trouble picking up putts.
“If you’re looking for a golf watch with advanced tracking features and accurate GPS, the Garmin S62 is the better choice.
If you can do without the advanced features,the Shot Scope X5 is the watch for you.”
