Still looking for Mother’s Day gifts? It’s not too late! These GPS devices may be the perfect fit for the female golfers in your life.
GolfBuddy LD2: $250
The company’s first GPS watch designed specially for women features a watch face that’s lined with 18 Swarovski crystals, while an alligator grain leather wristband adds to the rich look. A mineral crystal lens delivers a crisp, easy-to-read display — distances are to the front, center and back of the green, as well as hazards. And, there’s a dual-shot measurement function, which calculates how far you hit each shot. The LD2 comes pre-loaded with 38,000 courses worldwide.
Voice Caddie VC300: $130
The small, lightweight clip-on VC300 announces distances to the front, middle or back of each green with a simple touch or swipe— tap near the logo for yardages to the center, and swipe for distances to the front and back. Or, tap the logo area twice for the length of your most recent shot. The device supports seven languages (English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, French, Spanish and German), comes preloaded with 30,000 courses, and has a rechargeable battery that lasts eight hours.
Garmin Approach X40: $250
The sleek GPS watch doubles as an activity tracker by recording distance walked, calories burned, and heart rate as you make your way around the course. The band displays yardages to hazards as well as the front, middle, and back of each green, and features a “Green View” that allows you to tap where pins are located for more precise yardages at over 40,000 courses. A stat-tracking component records shots; the data can be sent via Bluetooth to your phone to analyze on Garmin’s Connect app. And, since the watch can be synced to your phone, you can set it to provide alerts for incoming texts, emails and calls.
