Through a high-resolution, glove-friendly touch screen, this GPS-enabled watch shows yardages to the front, back and middle of greens, with perfect accuracy. With innovative features, such as a Green View with manual pin positioning and digital scorecards, golfers get useful assistance during the game, while a modern sporty design of the Garmin’s timepiece makes it a pretty cool part of the every-day outfit.
The Garmin’s concept of providing golf course information without any fees, which begin with an Approach S1 watch, now comes even more improved. The Approach S3 comes preloaded with 27,000 worldwide courses and counting, but also gives the opportunity of free updates. Thus, golfers can add new courses and change the current lineup in order to increase accuracy, just by a simple touch on its digital display. This watch is provided with the new Green View technology that shows a true image of the current green, so that flag can be set manually for the current day’s pin position. This innovative feature also ensures information about the distance to the pin, front and back of the green.
“With its new features and design, the Approach S3 creates a new advantage for golfers all over the world,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “It’s light-weight, it includes a round timer to keep track of time played. Besides, the color options will make it a talking point on and off the course”, said Bartel.
With Garmin Approach S3 watch, golfers can add custom points that they want to compare or obstacles that may affect their shots zooming them in for a closer look. Furthermore, they are able to keep track of their scores throughout the round easily, by using digital scorecards. Scores can be reviewed right on the watch display or downloaded and accessed on a computer. Scoring options include Stroke Play and Stableford.
This great golf watch is designed to fit a wrist comfortably, without affecting the quality of a stroke. Besides, it weighs only 56 grams (2 ounces), which really should not bother a player during the game. At the same time, you will get a large display in the high-resolution, with oversized, bright numbering which is clear and readable even on sunlight.
Another important issue for every GPS watch is the battery-life. When it is fully charged, Garmin Approach S3 golf watch ensures eight hours of playing time, while it works up to four weeks as a day to day timepiece. Available in both black and white versions, with a choice of white or black background color, this useful device is available for around $350.
