Garmin have announced the Approach S60, its newest GPS golf watch with cutting edge golfing features and a great style that goes beyond the course.
The sleek Approach S60 GPS golf watch comes with a sunlight readable touchscreen display that intuitively integrates detailed CourseView mapping and yardages in full colour, right on your wrist. It provides quick access to critical information needed during a round like precise yardages to greens, hazards and doglegs to help players master their game on more than 40,000 preloaded courses from around the world including free lifetime updates.
With a modern style that goes beyond the clubhouse, the Approach S60 also features the popular QuickFit watchbands that can be easily interchanged in seconds, without tools. They’re available in an assortment of colored silicone, leather or stainless steel styles, and can be interchanged with a number of Garmin multisport watches, including the popular fēnix 5 series.
To add another level of fun and competition, the Approach S60 is one of the many Garmin golf watches compatible with the new Garmin Golf app that lets users compete in weekly leaderboards on any golf course no matter when they play it during the week. This free app allows users to compete against friends and fellow golfers on the same course, plus view other players’ rank, score, handicap and more.
Players can set up their own tournament event and invite multiple friends to compete, plus they can chat with each other and post their results for others to see. Using the Approach S60, players can also utilize the app for live scoring as they’re playing their round; scores entered on the device will automatically sync to the app for instant updates as they play.
Doubling as an all-day activity tracker2, the Approach S60 works with the Garmin Connect mobile app to monitor and record daily steps, calories burned, distance and sleep, with move alerts to keep users active throughout the day. It also receives smart notifications from compatible smartphones3, so users can stay connected with notifications for call, texts, emails and more right on their watch. What’s more, when paired with the app, the Approach S60 can also provide weather forecast data so players will know if they’re going to stay dry on the course.
The Approach S60 can get up to ten hours of battery life golfing and up to ten days in watch mode with activity tracking.
The Approach S60 is expected to be available in June in black or white with a RRP of £399.99. A premium version with the perfected look of a brilliant ceramic bezel and black leather band will also be available for £479.99.
