The Garmin Approach S1 GPS Watch combines a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with a lightweight, flexible sport watch to show precise yardage information to the front, back, and middle of greens and measures individual shot distances.

Ratings and Reviews for the Garmin Approach S1 GPS Watch

Write a Review for the Garmin Approach S1 GPS Watch
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 236 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent This watch performs well, accurately and comfortably. I compared distance numbers with a playing partner using a laser, and the numbers were consistently within a yard of each other, if not the same. And the convenience of having the yardage on my wrist rather than fumbling with a range finder or app on the phone was significant. Yardage was easy to read even in strong sun. I especially appreciate the auto advance aspect, so the watch is always on the correct hole. Great product. Only slight downside is the cumbersome recharging set-up, but not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Choice Received as a birthday gift and started using immediately. I have used on two different courses and it works very well - without any difficulty starting and using throughout the round. September 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin GPS Watch I wasn't sure what to expect, but this little watch is FANTASTIC! Using laser finders and other GPS devices on a 6 golf course test, the Garmin GPS watch was not only accurate at all times, but only one hole in 6 golf courses had a discrepancy of more than 2 yards. That was AMAZING! August 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin Approach S1 Works Great! I have been using my Garmin Approach S1 Wrist Watch for 3 weeks. This is my first GPS/rangefinder unit. I have played a half dozen 18-hole rounds with it on my wrist. I have used it for up to two full rounds before re-charging, though the Garmin display showed it had more charge in reserve. I have no complaints about about its set-up, capacity, re-charging or ease of use to this point. During play, checking yardage is as easy as checking the time of day on your wrist watch. No trouble reading the Garmin S1's uncluttered, clear display on cloudy or sunny days. No troubles with waiting for satellites locking in when I play both windy links-style and traditional tree-lined courses. The Garmin yardages appear to be on target compared to the fairway markers as well as the pin placements when ever I check. Most important observation is that the Garmin yardages have translated very effectively into my game. This has increased my confidence in club selection based on yardage alone AND in my decisions to adjust club selection based on prevailing conditions. The Garmin Approach S1 not only has helped improve my decision making, it also has contributed to better results in my game. My numbers of greens-in-regulation, pars and birdies are all trending positive since I've been using the Garmin S1. One final observation about the last round I played this month. Yes, I checked the yardage on my Garmin S1 from the Par 3 tee-box. After correctly adjusted my club selection based on the wind conditions, I executed a confident, pure swing. Terrific feeling. I made my first ever hole-in-one! Really, it's true; unbelievable, but true. March 2, 2012
