Garmin Approach S42 GPS Watch


We’ve got your game with Approach S42, a GPS golf smartwatch that’s designed for lowering your score on the course and upping your style off the course.

Looking into the sun might affect your shot, but not your ability to read your watch.

Show up to any of the 42,000+ preloaded courses and play like you’ve been there before.

Go the distance when you know the distance. Green View lets you manually position the pin.

Take your shot, and track where it landed with AutoShot detection.

More than just a golf watch. Wear it 24/7 and get smart notifications, track steps and more.

If you want to play 15 straight hours of golf, this watch has the battery life to do it.


Large 1.2” easy-to-read color touchscreen display with metal bezel is stylish and lightweight.


If you like to change watch bands as often as you change your course, no problem. Choose from interchangeable quick release bands.


Whether you just got done with a game and find yourself in the clubhouse or you want to hit the town, Approach S42 is great for everyday wear.


Your watch comes preloaded with more than 42,000 CourseView maps of golf courses around the world. Download updates for the course you play most often.


AutoShot game tracking automatically tracks detected1 shot distances. Pair with optional Approach® CT10 club tracking sensors (sold separately) for more tracking capabilities.


The Green View feature gives you each green’s true shape from wherever you are on the course, and it allows you to drag and drop the pin for greater accuracy.


Quickly reference distances to the front, middle and back of the green so you have all the data you need for the perfect shot.


Receive emails, texts and alerts right to your watch when paired with a compatible smartphone.


Pair with the Garmin Golf™ app2 for strokes gained analysis, to participate in leaderboards and tournaments and to gain more data about your game.


Take advantage of built-in sports apps and activity-tracking features3, including the move bar, vibration alerts, calories, steps and sleep.


Internal, rechargeable battery provides up to 10 days in smartwatch mode and 15 hours in GPS mode.
