RIDGELAND, MS – SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie®, the most-trusted rangefinders in Golf, announces SkyCaddie’s new wearable technology, the LX2 GPS Smart Watch, is the simplest, most powerful way to measure yardages.
Available to order now, the LX2 comes with SkyCaddie’s no-annual-fees Go Play plan and is preloaded with over 35,000 of SkyGolf’s ground-verified, error-corrected maps, the LX2 gives you accurate and dynamic distances to the front, center and back of green along with fairway and layup targets.
“The LX2 is a sleek, stylish, watch that’s lightweight and comfortable to wear both on and off the course,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf Senior VP and COO. “Most impressive though is the ‘Always-On’ JDI 1.28” touchscreen display that allows you to see the screen crisply and clearly in direct sunlight.
“Using the same ‘next generation’ technology of our award winning SX family of rangefinders, the LX2 delivers all the information you need to play your best because it’s loaded with stroke-saving technology, all at an affordable price point. The SkyCaddie LX2 weighs a mere 2 oz. and features a responsive, easy-to-use interface that makes navigating during play almost touch free. It also features a water-resistant casing and incredibly comfortable watch strap.”
The LX2 shares the same highly accurate, exclusively ground-mapped golf course data with all other SkyCaddies including the range-topping SX550, SX400 handhelds and LX5 models.

The SkyGolf 360 Cloud platform provides unmatched wireless connectivity for golfers to upload performance data captured during their round. SkyGolf 360 allows golfers to keep all performance data regardless of whether it comes from a rangefinder, a swing sensor, a performance tracker or a launch monitor in one place rather than scattered among various competitors with incompatible platforms. A single platform is not only to the golfer’s advantage, but it is also to the advantage of a teacher, PGA Professional or reseller to be able to offer all the tools a golfer can need to improve their performance from one source with the confidence their customers are getting the very best solution.
The LX2 retails for $199.95 with No Annual Fees required. You can select the Go Play plan with no annual fees or upgrade for a nominal fee to receive SkyCaddie’s full target list, IntelliGreen®, HoleVue® and SkyGolf 360.
