The Approach S40 GPS golf smartwatch with colour touchscreen looks great on your wrist and on the course. It shows distances to the front, middle and back of the green as well as hazards, and automatically records the location and distance of each detected shot1. It also lets you manually adjust to today's pin position for accurate approach shots. For even more precise automatic game tracking and a full overview of your game, pair with optional Approach CT10 club tracking sensors. Use with the Garmin Golf™ app for live scoring, automatic scorecard uploads and the ability to review all your stats in real time during play and after your round on your compatible smartphone. With the additional smartwatch features, you can wear it all day, and it can track your activities2.
Even when you're not playing golf, this watch is a stylish, lightweight performer. Its 1.2" colour touchscreen display with attractive metal bezel is as comfortable out on the town as it is on the course. When a subtle change of style is desired, it features quick release bands for an easy wardrobe change.
AutoShot game tracker1 automatically records the location and distance of each detected shot along the fairway for post-round analysis on the Garmin Golf app. For even more precise automatic game tracking, pair with optional Approach CT10 club tracking sensors.
Green View gives you each green's true shape from wherever you are on the course, and it allows you to manually drag-and-drop to today's pin location for a more precise yardage and greater accuracy.
