Shot Scope: Rangefinder vs. GPS Watch


Brought to you by


GPS watches and rangefinders are beneficial for all golfers, but when you get down to it, they are two very different devices that can help you improve your game and navigate a golf course. So, which one should you buy? Shot Scope is a leader in rangefinders and GPS devices (or both in the same device) and we show you how you can use them in different situations.

RANGEFINDER: A laser rangefinder provides you distances to exact locations. Maybe you’re wanting the yardage to a pin on a par 3, or even a tree or bunker in the distance on par 4’s and 5’s, rangefinders can certainly come in handy.

GPS WATCHES: With the GPS watches you are not going to get exact yardages, but instead, accurate distances to the front, middle and back of the green. With the V3 from Shot Scope, you are provided an overview of the hole so you can understand your shot better. Having a watch like the V3 on your wrist makes it easier for you to quickly make decisions, especially on a course you have never played before.

COMBINED (GPS AND RANGEFINDER): If you need all the help you can get, Shot Scope gives you the ability to have everything you need in the palm of your hand with the Pro LX. The Pro LX gives you the convenience of a GPS device and the precision of the laser so you are ready for any situation. You can shoot the yardage, but also work through your shot with front, middle and back numbers.

Shot Scope gives you access to 36,000 courses and performance tracking as well!
