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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied. Received this as a Christmas gift to replace my Bushnell tour rangefinder. I find that I am using the yardages to the front and back more than I am yardage to the middle. The back yardage lets me select a club that cannot go over the green if it is a back pin or a yardage that I know I can carry if it is a front pin. Also as I get on in years I found it more and more difficult to keep the rangefinder steady enough to capture the flag for a reading. Especially if it's 175+ yds away on a calm day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with this product I received the Garmin S3 for Father's Day and absolutely love it!! It is very easy to use and have never had a problem with it locating the random courses I play. It is so convenient to get to your ball and not have to worry about an app on your phone and wondering if it stays connected, just walk up to your ball, check the Garmin watch and you are all set. It is a little expensive, but I am impressed with this device overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and reliable distance finder 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harder to learn to use 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted Played 2 rounds with this watch now and it is awesome. All I wanted was the distance to front, center, and back of green with dogleg and layup distances so got it all. Both times I have had 45-50% battery left which is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and Convenient to use. Its right on your wrist 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps me focus on my game 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.
