Approach S1 combines a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with a lightweight, flexible sport watch. It is ready to go right out of the box with thousands of preloaded courses covering the U.S. or Canada. You can measure individual shot distances and track how far you walk on the course. Approach S1 - or S1W, the white version - is golf’s first full-featured sports watch and golf GPS in one.
  • Approach S1 will have you dialed in like a pro by providing 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 traveled — on the course or off.
  • Approach S1 is ready to go right out of the box with thousands of preloaded courses for the U.S. and Puerto Rico or Canada. Best of all - there is no need for subscriptions or additional setup — S1 is ready to tee off right out of the box.
  • Have the Canada version and need to travel to the U.S.? No problem, you can load U.S. courses for free online. Same thing with the U.S. version - you can switch to Canadian maps for free.

I looked around forever trying to find the right unit. I tried the range finder but didn't like them for various reasons not the least being the shake and you have to take a couple of reading to be sure you had the right number.

The hand held devices all had information overload. How many times have you played with someone who tells you the trap is 200 yards out then they proceed to hit it in that same trap?

This unit is perfect front, back and middle of the green is all I need. If you need more info go spend the $ on lessons.

      Comments about Garmin Approach S1 GPS Watch:

      I use this watch every time I play. It has everything I need. My friend has the newer improved version that also shows the course, which she never uses. This shows you distance and measures shots. I have not yet run across a course that it doesn't recognize. The battery lasts for at least one 18 hole round and maybe more. I read reviews before I bought it that said people had difficulty charging the battery. Mine charges fine. I recommend this product to all my golf friends.
