The Approach S40 GPS golf smartwatch with color touchscreen looks great on your wrist and on the course. It shows distances to the front, middle and back of the green, hazards and automatically records detected shot distances¹. It also lets you manually adjust to today’s pin position for accurate approach shots. For even more precise automatic game tracking, pair with optional Approach CT10 club tracking sensors. Use with the Garmin Golf™ app for live scoring, automatic scorecard uploads and the ability to review all your stats in real time on your compatible smartphone during play and after your round. With the additional smartwatch features, you can wear it all day, and it can track your activities².
Even when you’re not playing golf, this watch is a stylish, lightweight performer. Its 1.2” color touchscreen display with attractive metal bezel is as comfortable out on the town as it is on the course. And when a subtle change of style is desired, it features quick release bands for an easy wardrobe change.
With more sensors to improve detection accuracy, AutoShot game tracking automatically measures detected shot distances and records them for post-game analysis on the Garmin Golf app. For even more precise automatic game tracking, pair with optional Approach CT10 club tracking sensors.
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 to today’s pin location for a more precise yardage and greater accuracy.
