Avid Sport WatchThis might be the best golf tech idea I've ever seen. Now it needs your help to get off the ground. Introducing Avid Sport.  A golf smartwatch that allows you to check emails from your boss, text anyone on your contact list, and buzz your wrist to remind you to join the conference call you blew off to get to the course before sundown. Oh, plus it gives you accurate GPS yardages to the hole -- all at the same time.

Avid Sport is also designed to help you stay in shape when not on the golf course or in the office. Built-in Bluetooth 4.0 technology connects the watch to your smartphone or Avid Track (an Avid Watch accessory) to track your workout via GPS. You can even keep track of your heart rate.

Sound too good to be true? It doesn't have to be, but the folks at Avid Sport need your help. Be sure to visit their Kickstarter campaign website to make your contribution to this exciting product idea.
