Like the purchase of any golf equipment, you will likely base your decision on form, function, and price.  In this day and age information rules.  Golf GPS's are no different in that the top models will provide the most information.  You need to decide: for your golf game what is the price I'm willing to pay for that information. 

To make this decision you need to analyze your needs for a golf gps. Garmin Approach S1 Golf GPS Watch

No. 1 - How often do you play

If you only play once or twice a year then a no fee unit will probably be your best bet.   

Are you a member of a club and play regularly (at least once a week)?  If you play with a regular group you may want to have any edge you can gain.

Does your play fall somewhere in the middle (10 - 30 times a year).  You may not play enough to remain totally sharp in all facets of your game so a full feature golf gps can provide you with the game management to keep your scores low.

Do you often play rounds at different courses regionally, nationally, or internationally?  You will want a golf gps that provides you with full hole layouts and more.  It's better to know ahead of time about that creek running across the fairway or that bunker you can't see from the tee.

 

No. 2 - What features will you use during play

Buy a golf gps that provides the features that you will use during your course of playing a round.  For many courses the SkyCaddie provides a visual image of the green with slopes and contours.  If this is important to your game then you need to consider the SkyCaddie SGX.

Let's say you want to escape your iphone, blackberry, e-mails, etc.  You go to the golf course and don't want to constantly be holding another tech device in your hand the whole round and you will be happy with just quickly and easily knowing the distances to the front middle and back of the green.  What do you do.   Look at your wrist watch which is really the Garmin Approach S1.  Fun and simplistic with just the basic yardages.  If this is all you need then why would you buy a full featured golf gps?

 

No. 3 - Cost of Ownership

Like a car gps there are no actual fees to access the satellites for your unit.  Units such as the SkyCaddie and Sonocaddie charge recurring fees to cover course updates and additions.  Garmin and Golf Buddy have no additional fees and you also will still have access to course updates and additions.
