The Approach S42 GPS Watch is a smartwatch that helps you tee off with confidence, which can help lower your score on the course and increase your style off the course. It is available in three colour variations and features a colour touch screen showing you the distances to the front, middle and back of the green, as well as hazards and doglegs to avoid any trouble. 

The smartwatch can receive emails, texts, and daily notification alerts when paired with a compatible smartphone and helps keep you fit with a built-in sports app with activity tracking features such as the move bar, alerts, calories, steps, and sleep features. 

Features and Benefits

Colour Touch Screen - 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 finished a game and find yourself in the clubhouse or 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 worldwide. Download updates for the course you play most often.

Keep Track of Your Score - AutoShot game tracking automatically tracks detected shot distances. 

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

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

Green Contour Data -  Play your best approach shot and sink your putt with Green Contour Data. With an active Garmin Golf membership, you can see the slope direction of the green on selected golf courses directly on your phone or compatible device. (This is not visible on the watch.)

Only used a few times but very pleased with the S42 so far ,sometimes tracking doesn't always work but have found if you wear it tight on wrist works much better. Have paired with phone which works really well.

purchased the S42 Garmin after using the Golfbuddy that kept losing charge, very clear face even in bright sunlight, got my 2nd eagle in as many weeks, can this be put down to the watch, who knows, but a great piece of kit.

For a very average golfer like myself this watch is perfect for me. It gives me the ranges, I can score as I go along & it works out stats for me. It’s taken me a few rounds to work out how to move from one display to another but I’m getting there & I’m old :)
