6 golf watch gifts for the season of giving

Golf courses might be frosty at this time of year but that simply means it can be easier to get a tee time, so why not make that game even better by giving one of the best golf watches this season?These wonder watches can quite literally improve a golfer’s game. They work much like the conventional best smartwatches and best fitness trackers, using GPS and movement sensors to track heart rate, fitness data and movement, only these have extra features tailored specifically to golf. From course maps that help you decide on a shot or club, to swing tracking that measures your yardage and gives you the next lay-up – they offer a lot. Many are also heavily discounted in the Christmas sales.While all that might sound amazing, these watches have traditionally been either prohibitively expensive or – to be blunt – ugly. However, the last few generations have come on leaps and bounds and the latest options, with some of the best being from Garmin, now are more affordable than ever and more stylish too. We’ve also included additional accessories, from laser rangefinders to club sensors, to ensure you’ve got the right gift for every golfer.Want more options?
