Is there anything out there other than an Apple watch?

Thanks

Garmin makes a few that are worth looking at.

On the cheap you could pair a Magellan Echo with the GolfPad app... it's not exactly a svelt watch, but they sell on eBay for $15-$30 and offer a lot of functionality for the money and a coin battery lasts for around 6 months.  The same is true of anything running Android Wear as well.  I picked up the Echo for $15 to replace my lost LG Watch.  Replaced it with a Pebble Time Round because it's much thinner/lighter, but will probably go back to the Echo when the Pebble stops working in July.

Fitbit Ionic with Game Golf app. You should check out the Fitbit forums, the reviews were mixed at first but getting better lately.

You move your hands so much while playing golf that the steps are way over counted with the Bushnell watch.

I would also recommend looking at Gamin.   For Golf + fitness basics you've got:
s20 (no HR monitor),
x40 (w/ HR montitor),

Then there are others that are more advanced/expensive that could handle both golf and fitness along with some extras: - like the s60, fenix, vivoactive, etc...

If you want to get a Fitbit, the Versa is way better than the Ionic IMO.

I was looking for a good running watch/activity tracker with golf gps and the Garmin Vivoactive 3 hits the sweet spot pretty well.

My Vivoactive works great for golf and is great with running, biking etc as well. Best do it all for the money.

Tried the Fitbit Versa for a few days but no built in GPS and no golf aps supported at this time anyway.
