If you are a lover of round face military watches then you will definitely love the DREAM SPORT wearable GPS device. The device features a stylish and masculine, military watch design that befits its powerful high precision GPS chipset that powers its operations.
The large round face design hosts a square 128 by 128 pixels high-resolution display. This means you can easily and quickly read the time, the settings, the yardages, and the scorecard whenever you want. Moreover, you can adjust the backlight timeout function on this unit, to be able to read whatever you want to read for longer.
We refer to it as a device because it is definitely more than just a golf watch. Some of the powerful functions that make this device more than just a golf watch include: automatic course recognition, accurate measurement of the yardages to the front, the center and the back of the green, accurate measurement of carry and layup yardages, shot distance measurement, and so on. The previously mentioned high precision GPS chipset ensures that the distances this device measures and displays are accurate.
All other factors held constant, having this wearable technology on your wrist will certainly improve your game. This is because it gives you the distances to work with and get better shots. If your game won’t improve (which is unlikely), then at the very least you will enjoy it as you will have all the important stats to share with your golf buddies.

You can easily update the available golf courses and add even more courses via the manufacturer’s website.
The battery that powers this device is as good as the chipset runs it. It can last up to twelve hours in the GPS mode and over fifty days in the standby (watch) mode. However, the recharge time is a bit lengthy at three hours.
