Garmin Approach S3 GPS Watch - Grey/Black

Rugged and waterproof, the Approach S3 golf watch is another benchmark for GPS innovation within the golf market. Packed with 27,000+ worldwide courses without subscriptions or fees, S3 displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens. The S3 also introduces a high-resolution, glove-friendly touchscreen display, Green View with manual pin positioning, distances to doglegs and layups, customizable yardage points and printable digital scorecards for Stroke play and Stableford.

  • Touch & Move the Pin: Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green. Use the touchscreen to manually move the pin to the day's location. This is especially helpful on par-3's where you'll be able to dial in the distance you need, and fire away with confidence

  • Keep Score and See How Far You Hit It: Approach S3 debuts digital scorecard options for individual players. Scoring options include Stroke play and Stableford, and you can save, review and print scorecards from your home computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature
  • Choose Your Style: The S3 is available in 2 sharp color combinations - white with red trim and black with gray trim
  • Wear it Everyday: The S3 functions as an everyday watch, and it has a odometer so you can see how far you walk each day, or every round you play. A round timer also is included so you can keep track of how long it took you to play 18

Helps me focus on my game

Q-Star from Mechanicsville, VA | 8/2/2014 10:52 AM

Overall Rating

Having the S3 on my wrist allows me to identify distances quickly and then focus on each shot. Already reduced my average rounds by 6 strokes in 3 time out.

I can understand my driving distance

Takenaga from Terre Haute, IN | 6/26/2014 8:17 AM

Overall Rating

Terre Haute is not big city. But i can use it. So I am happy. Only my complain is battery. If I use it for 1 round, the battery become almost zero.

Easy and Convenient to use. Its right on your wrist

Overall Rating

Previously had a belt clip one. A sky Caddy that I had to pay an annual fee and continually worried if I clipped it back on my belt so it wouldn't fall off. Much more convenient and less confusing

Quick and reliable distance finder

mebachelder from Portland, OR | 6/9/2014 6:00 PM

Overall Rating

Immediate distances to front, back and middle of green with moveable pin placement on green view. Doesn't have hazard yardages, but you can set five custom yardage points on each hole. Also has an odometer to measure your distance that useful. Other feature of less value, but available include layup distances, scorecard, timer to see how long your round lasted and a watch. Much easier than other yardage devices I've owned.

Really like how easy it is to use

it's fast, and lightweight. I wasn't sure I'd like wearing something on my wrist. But it's great.
