Garmin Approach S3 GPS Watch - White/Red

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

  • Customize the Distances You Need: Approach S3 gives you distances to the front, back and center of the green, and you can see distances to doglegs. S3 also allows players to input and save customizable yardage points - like water hazards or bunkers - from anywhere on the course
  • 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

Great gps and service

My dealings with Garmin far exceed my expectations. Customer service people at Garmin went out of there way to answer my questions and update the software on my Garmin g3. In using the gps I find it accurate and easy to use. No subscription needed. I would buy Garmin products again.

Harder to learn to use

Bob White from San Diego, CA | 1/18/2014 3:24 PM

Overall Rating

This devise is a very nice looking and functional measurement tool. It is a little more complicated than my older model, therefore I am still traversing the learning curve. My only complaint is that the directions that come with the devise are not nearly clear enough. The only real learning behavior is to use it.
