Shot Scope X5 Vs Garmin Approach S70 Golf Watch Comparison
They look similar but there are some pretty important differences you should know about.
Find out what they are in the following comparison overview.
Shot Scope X5 Overview
“The Shot Scope X5 features a 2.1” color touchscreen display with a ceramic bezel and silicone wristband.”
It’s a comfortable watch and the display is readable in direct sunlight. And the Shot Scope X5 gives you all the basic tracking options including shot distance, distance to the front, back, middle of the green, distances to layups and hazards and manual pin positioning.
It’s loaded with 36,000 courses and automatically detects which course you’re on.
You can also sync it to the Shot Scope app and have all of your hole/round data stored including GIR percentage and hole maps with your shots plotted over them.
Garmin S70 Overview
“The S70 has a 1.4” color display with sharper resolution than the Shot Scope X5.”
The S70 has all the golf features that the Shot Scope X5 has and more including full vector maps, swing tempo tracking, virtual caddie, wind speed readouts, “plays like” distances and more.
It also has more fitness modes. Whereas the Shot Scope X5 only has a step tracker, the Shot Scope X5 has tracking modes for yoga, running, cardio training, pilates, cycling, swimming and more.
You can also get notifications from your smartphone on the S70 and even control your phone’s music player from the watch.
“The Shot Scope X5 is a bare-bones golf watch and not so much a lifestyle watch like the Garmin S70. But the Shot Scope X5 costs $300 compared to the S70 which costs $700.
So if you don’t need all the periphery features, the Shot Scope X5 is fine. But the S70 does have more use off the golf course if that’s what you want.”
