Keep Track. And Keep Score
With more sensors to improve detection accuracy, AutoShot game tracking automatically detects along the fairway and records distances for post-game analysis on Garmin Connect™.
Know Your Course
Approach S60 comes preloaded with maps for more than 41,000 golf courses around the world, and it offers automatic downloads of updates for those you play the most often when synced with Garmin Connect.
Get precise distances to each location on the course, as well as PlaysLike Distance, which adjusts yardages to account for uphill and downhill shots so you can select the best club for the situation. And with Touch Targeting, you can touch any point on the map for precise measurement to that exact spot — including fairway, sand traps, water hazards and more.
Reach the Pin
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 the pin into the correct location for the day for greater accuracy. PinPointer even tells you the direction to the pin when you have a blind shot.
Know Your Swing
Pair your Approach S60 with the Garmin TruSwing™ golf swing analyzer to get swing training, including swing speed and club path angles. By understanding what your swing is doing and how it impacts ball flight, you can improve the consistency of each swing.

There is talk about the accuracy of the watch into the green being inaccurate. This is true to a point. The watch is very user friendly after a round or two. You can see distances to hazards correctly and into the middle of the green. and it even gives you distance in lines. default distance is middle of the green. You can correct the pin placement to get a more accurate distance but if you dont put it on the watch where it ACTUALLY is on the green then you will see a difference vs laser. This small margin of error can put you off two to five yards. You will not be as accurate as with a laser that goes straight to the pin. Super easy to adjust pin placement tho.
The understated high point of the watch is its lack of needed attention on the course. You set it up at the beginning, adjust pins on the green if you want and put scores in on each hole and it does the rest. Where it really shines is when you get home and view your round on the Connect software. After you let the software know what clubs you used on what shots, You are now able to see distances by club. This creates data for you to know what to use where. And if you play the same course several times, you can hit the history icon and it will show where you hit during previous rounds so you can see a pattern.
It is a nice watch to wear daily as it synced with my phone pretty easy. I can get texts and calls to answer or decline but can not talk over the watch like an iwatch can. Smart watch info is pretty solid and steps and health data can be collected as well. Individual club sensors are available, but I have not tried them.
Price point. Well it is not cheap. But if you bought a Laser, shot analyzer, and watch you would pay way more. The technology this watch offers is well worth that price tag. As long as you are accustomed to wearing watches while playing, this purchase is really a must have. After reviewing other watches, nothing really compares. And no, I dont work for Garmin.
Overall, I will say this watch will do a lot more than what I have tried thus far but what I have tried has worked well. I would suggest this watch over a phone app any day. Apps take too much time for input during a round and this needs very little input during a round. Most retailers offer a return policy of some kind. Take this watch for a spin and I promise you will not be disappointed.
It's light and yardage seems accurate
Haven't used much of other functions
After my Bushnell V2 took a swim, I was able to get the Pro X2 at a great price and I love it. It's the best as far as handhelds go but this watch is pinpoint accurate. I know because I'm testing them side by side. The watch even has slope adjustments which are very accurate.
Plus, it's a full blown smart watch. It counts steps, sleep, workouts, etc...
You can change the face to a 1000 options from the Garmin store for free.
It is also very nice looking. A part of me wishes I splurged for the premium version but I'm very happy.
It's worth the splurge. It'sike having a cart GPS on your wrist.
