Garmin S3 Approach
The Garmin S3 Approach golf GPS watch is without question the most advanced golf watch ever built. The S3 is tough, waterproof and has tens of thousands of courses worldwide right on the watch. It shows you yardage to the front, back and middle of the greens with a glove useable touch screen.
The Approach S3 is amazing and allows you to manually get precise pin positions, distances to layups and doglegs, print digital scorecards and customize your yardage points.
For Approach shots simply touch and move the pin to any point on the green to exactly match the day's pin placement. This helps with proper club selection and to fire away with confidence.
S3 comes over 10,000 courses without extra fees or subscriptions, plus you can download free course updates whenever they become available.
You can also customize marked yardage distances for any hazard anywhere on the course.
Keep Score & See How Far
Approach S3 has digital scorecard options for individual players. Scoring options include Stroke play and Stableford, and you can save, review and print scorecards from your computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature.
The S3 functions as an everyday watch, with an odometer to see how far you walk. A round timer also is included to keep track of how long it takes you to play 18 holes. It's available in 2 sharp color combinations — white with red trim and black with gray trim.
