Here are a few good reasons to wear a TomTom Golfer watch

If you think that TomTom is only related to car navigation, you might want to read this, especially if you are a golfer. Recently, TomTom has been venturing beyond navigation, Using their expertise on GPS, they have come out with watches. I have actually reviewed one of them (the TomTom Runner Cardio GPS watch). Now, they have launched the TomTom Golfer, a watch for the avid golfer in you.
