Golfing Watch From Garmin
- Battery lasts entire day
- Takes into account
- Sunlight readable display
Garmin has launched its first touchscreen GPS golf watch, the Approach S3, which features a rugged design and preloaded with more than 27,000 worldwide courses.
It also has a range of new and established features from Garmin, including Green View, digital scoring and a round timer. The new touchscreen display of the Approach S3 makes it even easier to access course and game information, and with an eight hour battery life, users can be assured of a full day’s play in one charge.
With access to more than 27,000 worldwide courses and counting, the Approach S3 takes the guesswork out of unfamiliar terrain. Garmin also offers free updates throughout the year to ensure ongoing accuracy on new and existing courses.
Just as courses change, so do the pin placements. With Garmin’s Green View feature, golfers can see a true image of the current green and with a simple touch of the screen, the flag can be adjusted for the current day’s pin placement. As adjusted, it displays the distance to the pin, front and back of the green.
With its long lasting battery, the Approach S3 gives golfers access to all their vital course and game information throughout an entire day. When users select the watch mode, the device will last for up to four weeks as a day to day time piece. The Approach S3 is available in both black and white, allowing users to choose the style most suited to their golfing gear.
Weighing less than 60 grams, the Approach S3 features a high-resolution sunlight readable display with bright numbering which means, even in changing light conditions throughout the golfing day, you’ll always know where and how far from the hole you are. The Approach S3 even offers layup distances. Golfers can add custom points on the watch that they want to measure or zero in on hazards or obstacles that may affect the perfect shot.
Keeping track of a player’s score throughout the round is made simple with the Approach S3. Golfers can review their scores right on the device, or download and access a printable version of their own round on their computer. Scoring options include Stroke Play and Stableford.
The Approach S3 will be available in both golf white with red trim and black with red trim with the option to select between a white or black background.
