Garmin Approach S42 GPS Golf Watch

  • Authorised Retailer
  • Free UK Delivery*
  • Full Manufacturer Warranty

The Approach S42 GPS Watch is available in three colours and features a colour touch screen, showing you distances to the front, middle and back of the green as well as hazards and any trouble on the holes. This device also automatically records the location and distance of each shot detected so if you are playing in foggy conditions, this device will guide you towards your ball. 

COLOUR TOUCHSCREEN - Large 1.2″ easy-to-read colour touchscreen display with a metal bezel is stylish and lightweight.

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

GOES BEYOND THE COURSE - 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.

42,000+ PRELOADED COURSES - 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.

KEEP TRACK AND KEEP SCORE - AutoShot game tracking automatically tracks detected shot distances. 

GREEN VIEW - 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.

About Us

Welcome to The Golf Shop Online!

We first started our website in 2002 as due to the lack of space in our first pro-shop, we wanted a platform to showcase all the incredible products and choices available to our members.

Since then, that first acorn has now grown into a large oak tree, and we've established ourselves as a secure 'go-to' online retailer representing the biggest brands into golf! 

We were and remain totally passionate about golf! 

The trust shown in us by our customers is something we don't take for granted. We are 100% focused on delivering you the very best service, price and web experience. We are proud of our Trustpilot 5 Star and "rated excellent" score and continue to strive to improve. 

Be assured that we are authorised by all the brands we represent. All products sold come with our aftercare promise and a full manufacturer's warranty, giving you peace of mind. We also offer a 60 Day "no-quibble" return policy. 

We constantly check our prices against our competitors, making sure we deliver you the best deal, plus offer a further price promise in the unlikely event you find it cheaper elsewhere* 

If we can help in any way, or you can't find a product you're specifically after, please give us a call or drop us an email at

Garmin Approach S42 GPS Golf Watch - Great Value Reviews

Star Star Star Star No Star

The operation takes a bit of getting used to after years of use of a Garmin S8. But once mastered it's much more convenient. The product is nicely made and good to look at. The service from Golf-On-Line was superb, with next day delivery.
