In this video, Alex from GolfMagic reviews the Shot Scope V3 GPS Golf Watch at Mannings Heath Golf and Wine Estate to see how it can vastly improve your game.

The Shot Scope V3 GPS Watch goes beyond just being a GPS that guides you around the golf course, it can improve your game with data and statistics.

The watch can provide long term tracking of every department of your golf game, whether it is putting or driving and it can show the areas you excel in and where you need to improve.

The watch has many different practical qualities such as its battery life and how quick it can become charged, as well as the clarity and easiness to use the screen.

THE DETAILS

To begin with, the battery life on the watch is incredible. The watch can last up to three rounds when you would only expect it to last no more than two rounds.

The watch charges extremely quickly so there is no bother if you have forgotten to charge it over night or if you have only put it on charge for a small period.

It is not only a GPS watch, it has many other features that help with course navigation and general game improvement.

The watch has a hazard feature which allows you to know the distance to a bunker or pond if you want to hit a lay-up shot.

As well as giving you distances to hazards and to different sections of the green, the watch also tells you how long your round has lasted up until certain points.

You can sync the watch to your phone and this is where you are able to access your performance data to see where you need to improve.

The performance section of the app allows you to view different parts of your game such as strokes gained, putting, driving and short game.

The strokes gained section can provide you with statistics from either your last round, your last five rounds or from every round you have entered in 2021.

It will show you strokes gained from off the tee, with your approach shots and with your short game and putting. The watch offers a superb service in helping you identify your strengths and weaknesses.

Away from the strokes gained area, you can also view other sections such as putting. In this section, it will give you a percentage of putts you have hit long or short, as well as how many you average in each round.

You can also track your ball striking too. When you go on to this section, it shows you where your tee shots have gone, whether it be the left rough, the right rough or the fairway.

It shows your longest drive over your selected time period and the watch also offers a similar accuracy service with your approach shots too.

GOLFMAGIC VERDICT 

This watch essentially gives you a golf lesson, considering the amount of data it allows you to collect and the amount of feedback that you can receive.

The item can show you the exact areas of your game that you need to improve and the detail in the statistics are so impressive.

From potentially hitting putts too short to finding the left rough a lot with your drives, this watch is extremely informative and it allows you to address your areas of weakness.

The product is reliable in wet and windy conditions and the battery life is arguably the best feature in a whole host of great features.

The watch charges quickly and it lasts up to roughly three rounds of golf, which is extremely impressive durability. 

Alex has used the watch over the last six weeks to gather all the data he needs to find out where he needs to improve and where his strengths lie, and there are very few products in golf that are capable of this.
