Garmin Approach S60

Back on Course

Posted on July 6, 2018

Garmin’s latest golf watch, the Approach S60, is one of the most fashionable bets for course detection accuracy. The S60 has schematics preloaded from more than 41,000 golf courses around the world. The watch’s data also employs something called Touch Targeting, where you tap anywhere on the course graphics to get exact distances to that spot. It won’t just give you the yardage, but also the specifics of that hole, like distance to water hazards, dog legs, and sand traps, and it compensates for slopes surrounding the greens. The watch includes AutoShot game tracking, which records your distances for post-game analysis on the Garmin Connect phone app. The watch comes with a 1.2-inch touchscreen and has removable QuickFit bands, so you can change the style and color depending on your mood, attire, and location. $399. buy.garmin.com   Ryan Thomas
