Founded in 2001, Dutch company TomTom holds a market share of nearly 50% for Gobal Positioning Systems (GPS) in some markets.  They've sold more than 75 million devices. They're a big player.

In 2013 the company diversified to introduce its own brand of GPS sport watches for runners, cyclists, and swimmers.

With the golf market already attracting many GPS competitors it comes to no surprise that TomTom would eventually enter the segment.

That time is now.

The company will introduce their new GPS-Enabled Golfer Watch to the golf industry at the upcoming PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.

If the reaction to the photo we posted on Twitter is any way to measure it, the TomTom golf watch should be a success based on looks alone.  Comments yesterday followed this theme:

We don't have a lot of details on the watch yet, like pricing, but here is the feature list we were provided:

  • User Friendly Graphics - Unique and easy-to-read…

Thanks.  Just looked.  From $269 Canada... Hmmm... wonder what options and how the price escalates?

Sharp looking, but at 300 seems a lot for an introductory tool most people can just use an app on their phone for. I love my dedicated gps, but I'm in the extreme minority of people who don't have A smartphone.

Its one of the few GPS watches that i actually like the look at but at the price i will pass.  My laser range finder is just to easy to use.
