Play longer. With up to 10 hours of battery life while golfing - or up to 10 days in watch mode - your Approach S60 is sure to keep up with you. In fact, use for more than just golfing with preloaded activity profiles for running, cycling, swimming and more. And with activity-tracking features, including the move bar, vibration alerts, calories and steps, the Approach S60 will help you stay fit, day in and day out. Reach the pin. Green View gives you each green's true shape from wherever you are on the course, and it allows you to manually drag-and-drop the pin into the correct location for the day for greater accuracy. PinPointer even tells you the direction to the pin when you have a blind shot. Keep track, and keep score. With more sensors to improve detection accuracy, AutoShot game tracking automatically detects¹ along the fairway and records distances for post-game analysis on Garmin Connect. Personal timepiece, personal touches. Sync the Approach S60 to your compatible smartphone to get smart notifications for incoming calls, texts, emails and other alerts. Connect in more ways, too, including the Garmin Golf app, which allows you to compete on leaderboards on any one of the 40,000 courses with friends. Download custom watch faces, apps and widgets from the Connect IQ store. Know your course. Approach S60 comes preloaded with maps for more than 40,000 golf courses around the world, and it offers automatic downloads of updates for those you play the most often when synced with Garmin Connect. Get precise distances to each location on the course, as well as PlaysLike Distance, which adjusts yardages to account for uphill and downhill shots so you can select the best club for the situation. And with Touch Targeting, you can touch any point on the map for precise measurement to that exact spot - including fairway, sand traps, water hazards and more. Know your swing. Pair your Approach S60 with the Garmin TruSwing golf swing analyzer to get swing training, including swing speed and club path angles. By understanding what your swing is doing and how it impacts ball flight, you can improve the consistency of each swing.

Go get yourself 1 !!!!!
OMG this G.P.S. Is AWSOME if you cannot tell I love it! I owned the S2 for years but then when I laid my eyes on what this unit can accomplish I HAD TO HAVE IT absolutely no regrets!!! Yardages on your wrist with sky view of the hole, score, club lengths, yardages from anywhere, tempo sensor, and on and on and on! Did I mention I LOVE this thing???

Great Golf Watch
Approach S60 is an excellent golf watch.

I've had my Approach S60 for about three months. In that time it has worked 99.99999%. One time I had an issue where the watch would froze and it took a bit to get it to reboot or reset. Other than that 1 time it has worked flawlessly. I love that it keeps score for you, gives you your out and in scores, measures your shots to your clubs. It is a bit small when you are looking for hazard distances etc. But it can be done and is a bonus. So far the battery has been amazing. I think I could get two rounds out of one charge as sometimes I come back with 65% battery still left. Personally I charge it a little the night before I play and the morning of I put it back on the charger for a bit. I don't turn it on until there is one group ahead of us on the tee box. I does take a bit to locate the satellites but once its locked in your good to go. Great portability for a golf GPS, nice looking watch. You can't go wrong with the Approach S60. I give it 5 stars !

My New Everyday watch!
This is my new everyday watch. The size is fine and it's very comfortable. The battery life for non-golf use is great. For golf mode I think I can get 36 holes in on a charge, but not sure. It took a while to get used to the interface after using the Samsung Gear S2, but that watch needed a charge every day.

Mostly OK...A Few Quirks
Been using for about 4 months. Generally works great but I have experienced issues with the device getting "stuck" and not advancing to the next holes. Usually I just manually advance it to the correct hole but at least a couple of times, that didn't work. I wish the scoring feature offered more options...fairway left/right, penalty, OB, etc. Without that, I use a different device for scoring details. Zooming in for distances to specific targets is nice, but can be kind of tight with a small device. But it's workable. Overall, very nice. Improves pace of play. Just some small things I wish were better.

So far so good, but...
I have used my new s60 for four games now. The basic functions are easy to understand but I would like more detailed instruction on all its features. I am finding it difficult to use to what I think it might be capable of. Hence the low rating above

Have trouble w/ recording scoring
Bought 8/11/2019 have trouble recording shots after leaving green. Also wouldn't allow score recording for use of temporary green during round. The course was rebuilding green and installed a temporary one.

Garmin Approach S60
Well,this is the 4th Garmin that I have gotten and I absolutely hate it. It doesn't show me where the hazards are like my G4 does and it's terribly complicated to use. When I press the return key, it never goes back to where I was and when I push the action key, it doesn't do much at all.

Return extremely easy! 5 stars for Walmart. 1 for watch. Poor software. Many issues.
