Samsung just announced a new version of its recently released Galaxy Watch called Galaxy Watch Golf Edition. As you've probably guessed by its name, it's directly aimed at golf fans.

The Galaxy Watch Golf Edition is a follow-up to last year's Gear S3 Golf Edition and is only available in South Korea initially.

The watch itself is essentially the same as the vanilla Galaxy Watch plus the smart Caddie app that makes navigating through golf courses a lot easier. Additionally, the app can do record and shot tracking so you can track your progress. The Smart Caddie contains information about 60,000 golf courses around the world and Samsung says the battery life will be just enough to get you through 54 holes (or three full rounds).

The asking price for the 46mm variant is KRW 409,700 ($367) while the 42mm sells for KRW 389,900 ($351). There's no information about when and if that version is stepping outside of South Korea for now.
