Welcome to GOLF’s 2023 edition of the Best of Everything, where we’re providing you with, well… the best of everything!

If you’re looking to give your game a serious upgrade in 2024, buying a GPS watch is a great way to start. Stylish and compact, a GPS watch is the perfect multi-functional accessory.

But with so many options on the market, which GPS watch is best for your game?

It depends on the features that are most important to you. Do you value a full-color screen with all the bells and whistles, or a more simplistic interface? Do you want a watch that also functions for off-course wear, or would you prefer to use it solely for golf?

Luckily, there are plenty of options that offer both fashion and function.

Below, you’ll find 5 of our favorite GPS watches for 2023, all of which boast various features that you can compare to find the perfect GPS watch for your game.

BEST GPS WATCHES 2023

What to look for in your ideal GPS watch…

This is the most important element of most GPS watches — the yardage! How do you like to see distance displayed? Do you prefer multiple readings, such as front, middle, and back, and carry distances to avoid penalty areas? Do you want to see a full-color display of the hole you’re playing, or just the number?

What else are you hoping your GPS watch will do? Do you want to use it for off-course pursuits, like tracking your heart rate or sleep quality?

There is a wide range of GPS watches, all of which have different functionality and price points, from basic to luxury-level. Which would you prefer? The decision may to come to how often you see yourself wearing and using your GPS watch.

Compare and explore each GPS watch. Be sure to check out the additional features available for each GPS watch by tapping the ‘BUY NOW’ button.
