Garmin Approach S1 in White
See the Game Differently
The Approach S1W is a white version of Garmin's GPS wristwatch designed specifically for golf. It is the first GPS golf watch that measures the precise yardage to the position on the golf hole. Preloaded with more than 7,400 European courses, Approach S1 also features a built-in odometer to measure how far you've walked.
Take Your Measurements
Combining a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with a lightweight, flexible white sportswatch, S1 gives you distance information to the front, back and middle of the greens. You can measure individual shot distances, track how far you walk on the course and then use the alarm to get you up in the morning ready for your tee time. Approach S1 is golf's first full-featured sports watch and golf GPS in one.
Lock In Yardages and Measure Distances
With Approach S1, you'll know any course like your home track, with yardages to the front, back and middle of the green. The sunlight-viewable screen features large numbering for at-a-glance visibility. S1 also measures precise yardages for shots played from anywhere on the course. And for those who like to walk, there's the S1 odometer to tell you how far you travelled - on the course and off.
No Downloads, No Subscriptions
Unlike many golf GPS devices on the market, S1 comes preloaded with more than 7,400 European courses - and we're adding more all the time. There's no need for subscriptions, downloads or additional set up - S1 is ready to tee off out of the box.
Sleek Everyday Watch
S1's cool look belies its tough, rugged, waterproof design. Fitted for course playability, S1 also functions as an everyday watch. There's an alarm, rechargeable lithium-ion battery and S1 sets its time and time zone automatically, so you're ready to go wherever you're playing across Europe.

Switch it on when you arrive at the golf club (it takes less than a minute to find satellites),
it prompts you with the course name (your club may have multiple courses),
click select on the course,
walk onto the tee (front or back 9; doesn't matter; it figures it out),
off you go,
while standing at my ball, a quick glance at my wrist helps my shot/club selection (its as easy as checking the time)
Unlike my shotsaver, I can read it without glasses.
as you walk from a green to the next tee it switches automatically to the appropriate hole.
Unlike my shotsaver, I don't have to explicitly 'finish hole' and confirm the next hole.
I can forget about it for a few holes and not have get out my glasses and 'finish' multiple holes to get to where I am.
Its strictly 'distance to green (front, middle, back)'; nothing about bunkers and other hazards.
Very accurate, to the yard. I already trust it more than my course's 150yd and 100yd markers.
It measures around dog legs (not as the crow, and occasionally the ball, flies).
Oh, you do have to 'end round' as you finish your round, or the battery will discharge too quickly (I didn't try leaving it on).
'Measure shot' worked as expected. 'Odometer' worked fine too.
I have a golf gps on my phone which is very good, but this takes the idea to a new level.
The whole point is that the information is so close by, I look at it before every shot because it's so much easier than getting the phone out of my bag to check yardages, the simplicity of use means you actually use it.
What has surprised me is how much it has helped with the shorter approach shots, before I would rarely think about actual distance, now I check everything over 50 or so yards. This has saved me shots, as I find it much easier to judge the weight of shot when I know the precise distance. Before looking at the watch I will guess what I think it will say, and I am surprised how easy it is to be 10 or 20 yards out. I am find my guesses are getting closer each round, which suggests my judgement is improving as a result.
You do need to charge the watch after each round as the battery life with GPS running is 8 hours, but I don't find this a hardship. I have a USB adapter in the car, so if necessary I can just leave the watch on charge there. Otherwise it lives next to my PC connected via USB so it is always ready to go.
I haven't yet had a need to update the courses as the ones I play have all been there and accurately represented, including what has to be one of the more obscure 9 hole seaside courses in the country, and perhaps more surprisingly the 9 hole par 3 that's attached to my own club.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who is seriously looking to improve their golf.
I have found the charging clip-on connecter to be a bit fiddly too, and you must wait to see the battery symbol light up to ensure that it is charging.
Having said all the above, I still think it is a great gadget and would recommend it.
lost all the courses in may and called garmin support who asked me to push a couple of buttons to reset watch and then download s/w, courses again. all was ok for a couple of weeks, then watch started losing charge after 5-6 holes.
eventually could not charge watch. called support who asked me to reset, i queried this as the watch would not switch on to do. advised the reset would work without the watch on. support were very helpful but the only solution as my warranty was over the time was for me to send the watch to them and they would send me refurbished watch for £63 with 3 months warranty.
thanks but no thanks i said i now have no faith in the watch and would not purchase another. placed in the rubbish bin

Had no problems with this - had it for almost two years now. Doesn't get dirty too easily either (bought the white one). All in all very happy.Published 18 days ago by MrDoogso
