Garmin Approach S1 GPS Golf Watch Review

The Garmin Approach S1 GPS Golf Watch has been designed with simplicity in mind. Press “Start Round, it immediately knows which course you’re playing and gives you three yardages – front, middle and back – to every pin. Oh, and it’s a watch too.

If like me you’ve already tried using a handheld (or bag mounted) Golf GPS Rangefinder and found it a little annoying having to fiddle around every time you need a yardage then you’ll love the Garmin S1 Golf Watch.

Hands Free, Simple, No Fuss alternative to GPS rangefinder units. Three yardages is all you really need – front, middle and back. “Neil Peters

As you’d expect from a company with Garmin’s pedigree the Garmin S1 is well designed, sleak, has a very simple user interface and uses the very lastest GPS technology.

Unlike similar products, with this watch there is no need for downloads and updates in the future. There is also never any subscription fees for the service it provides. This feature alone makes this watch a great value as many of the competing products require a yearly fee to use the device.

There are a couple of minor niggles with the Garmin S1 that are worth pointing out. The battery life is only good for about two rounds of 18 holes, so if you’re using it quite a bit then you need to keep it charged up. However, when you consider how small the battery is then

The second thing is that some golfers don’t like to play golf with a watch on! However, it’s so lightweight and the strap is very comfortable so you’ll hardly notice you’re wearing it. It’s also waterproof so you don’t need to worry about showers.

It’s also a very sporty looking everyday watch. When you’re not using it as a Golf GPS the battery life lasts forever. It has a nice backlight display and time/date/alarm functions so you can wear it as an everyday watch.
