The Garmin Golf GPS Approach S6 Watch Review.

Golf GPS Devices have been around for many years now, however Garmin Golf’s Approach S6 Watch has almost reinvented this category, with an incredible new watch worthy for any major player.

The first thing you notice when you take the Garmin Golf S6 Watch out of the packet and into your hand, is how light it feels. The S6 weighs in at just 47grams. So when the watch is on your wrist you hardly notice it’s there. Garmin’s S6 watch has been designed with a very sporty look to it, available in 3 colours, white, black or black orange. The S6 watch is made from a flexible and durable rubber material, the strap has been designed with small air holes so when it is on your wrist, it allows for a great amount of breathability. Very soft to wear with no hard plastic digging in to you anywhere. What I also noticed, that was very nice, is the large round face the Garmin Golf S6 watch boasts, at 2.5cm (1 inch) this makes the screen very easily viewable, however the only drawback is, that the S6 watch is slightly difficult to get under a jumper sleeve, but as GPS watches go, for on course wear it is very good.

The main feature of Golf GPS watches, is to measure distances. The Garmin Golf Approach S6 Watch picks up your location straight away and locates the golf course you are on, from its pre-loaded 40,000 course data. You get a very clear display, in big digits, the front, middle and back distances of the green. Like previous models the S6 Approach watch features a combination of buttons with a touch screen to navigate your way around the device. The watch is very responsive and touching up or down allows you to go through the holes. Pin Pointer is a neat new feature which brings up the Pin position, distance and direction, very handy when the green can’t been seen. The Approach S6 gives you a map of the hole you are playing, but in honesty this does view very small on screen. Garmin Golf’s Approach S6 watch comes with a USB charging cradle which clips neatly onto the back of the watch.

Since this article has been written Garmin have now updated there range and the most recent model is the Garmin S70 GPS Watch which has all the features of the S6 and more

There is no mains adaptor, but near enough everyone now has a computer that it can plug into, this also allows you to upload your course and playing data to your computer, on the Garmin Express Website where you can manage your account online. As far as Golf GPS Devices go the Garmin Golf GPS Approach S6 watch is very easy to use, even for the less advanced of us in technology and I really feel it justifies it’s price tag fully, as its not just measuring distance, it gives you so much more.

Its not just watches that Garmin Golf produce, to go with the Latest Garmin Golf GPS Device’s, is the New Approach G10. This is a handheld Garmin Golf GPS device.

This is Garmin’s most smallest and compact GPS device yet. The Approach G10 can conveniently attach itself onto you belt, bag or pocket.

Incredibly lightweight at just a mere 28grams. What I felt was comforting, is the large display area, which is fully maximised and sunlight readable. No space has been wasted, with the buttons on the side of the device. The Garmin Golf GPS Approach G10 is a totally versatile device and fantastic value if you are not looking to spend a fortune the Approach G10 ticks all those boxes.
