Well, for quite some time now there has been a debate about what technology one should use when on the golf course. Both of them are actually used for the same purpose only that they take different directions to arrive at the same result.With that being said, in this article, we are going to compare two specific models of both the laser range finder and a GPS gadget. The two models are, Nikon Coolshot for the rangefinder and SkyCaddie Linx Golf watch for the GPS.
In the past, golfers would use different techniques just to find the correct yardage while playing. One of these methods was looking for sprinkler heads. People don’t do this anymore, all thanks to the different range measuring devices available in the market today. GPS golf watches were introduced more than a decade ago and in some courses, golfers would always be charged for using them. It would serve as an added gear to your equipment thus the courses would often make money from that as this was the main idea. However, these days they seem to be of more value for the course management than just to attract golfers. Well, the GPS technology has grown as you can also find handheld units nowadays compared to the cart-based units used in the past.
Right now you can find different apps for your smartphone, watches that can actually help you measure the distances, keep your stats and show you the number of calories burned during while playing and many other things. On the other hand, the new golf rangefinders use a stabilized technology that makes it easy to get the targets. Most of them even use a certain technology that allows you to get the accurate measurement as possible by adding or subtracting a few yards in case you are faced with a slope.
