Garmin Approach S2 review: Hands-on

 

The Garmin Approach S2 is a GPS golf watch that measures course distance all the way to the pin which is perfect if you really need to get a quick round in

At £209 the S2 Approach is around £40 cheaper than the Garmin Approach S3 and does lack the touchscreen interface and the Green View mode which lets you see a graphical view of the course and adjust the flag according to the day’s pin placement.

It was difficult to figure out how to successfully left swipe the watch to get it started. I watched the videos online and they were helpful. There should be an instructional video for each action. Overall it is easy to use. I have only used it a...

Very cool

 

I have used an S1 for a while, so upgrading to the S3 was easy. The touch screen is great and the overall handling is smooth and easy to learn.

Golf GPS watch

 

Just what I needed. I have a hard time as to how far it is to the pin. This has helped as to what club to use.

lots of features in this golf gps

 

My second golf GPS, I had a sono caddie for 4 years, which worked pretty well, but kept running into courses which weren't loaded in the unit or the front nine would be OK but not the back. This GPS with 30,000 courses, I'm hoping won't have thone...

does more than other units on the market

no negatives so far

Consumer review by:

Strong GPS, makes golf easier & more fun

 

Great alternative to hand-held gps units or the ridiculous binocular-like range finder. Used alongside my Callaway gps and Bushnell range-finder and the Garmin's accuracy was spot on. The ability to move the pin on the green for more specific yardage...

Wear on wrist, no need for separate device, no subscription costs, easy to read display

Battery life could be better in GPS mode. Barely get 2 18-hole rounds per charge

Consumer review by:
