Garmin Approach S20 is a sleek and lightweight GPS golf watch that provides more convenience on the course with distances on over 40,000 preloaded courses including hazards plus Green View and the new Garmin AutoShot™ game tracker for detailed game analysis on Garmin Connect™. The watch also doubles as an activity tracker¹ and provides smart notifications² to connect you with your active lifestyle.
Know Before You Swing
Whether you’re leisurely playing with friends on your favorite local course or teeing up on that amazing resort course you’ve always wanted to play, Approach S20 knows on which golf course you are — and how far you are from the next green. The watch’s high-sensitivity GPS receiver gives you the distance data you need to fire away with confidence. On the high-resolution display, you’ll see distances to the front, back and middle of the green, as well as hazards, doglegs and layups.
There is More to Know About Your Game
AutoShot™ game tracker automatically tracks shots3 along the fairway and measures distances for post-round analysis on Garmin Connect.
Play More Rounds
Your Approach S20 features a long-running lithium-ion battery to carry you through long rounds or those extra holes. You can easily get in a whole weekend of golf with up to 15 hours in full GPS mode before the battery needs to be recharged. For daily use in activity tracking mode, you can expect the battery to go up to 8 weeks between recharges.
Garmin Connect – Your Golf Community
Garmin Connect is the online golf community that lets you play, then share and compare. Download your round and contrast it to your last round; track improvements to your game for every course you play. The Garmin Connect golf community can even assemble your ideal round, combining your best score for each hole to get your ideal 18 for that course.
Know the Green
The Green View feature on your Approach S20 shows you the true shape and layout of the green. You can manually reposition the pin to today’s location for accurate distances to the hole.
Keep Score Right on Your Wrist
Approach S20 golf watch easily keeps track of your score throughout your round. When you’re done, you can save, review and even use the Garmin Connect™ Mobile fitness app with your smartphone to upload and share that great round with your golfing buddies online.
Smart and Connected
Never miss another important text, email or alert during a round, just because your smartphone is tucked away somewhere in your bag. Approach S20 is a smart watch that acts as a wireless extension of your compatible smart phone, displaying smart notifications, right on your watch2. Now, via Bluetooth® technology, you can read that email or text you’ve been waiting for — even in the middle of the fairway. Approach S20 also provides a great new way to train your swing together with the optional Garmin TruSwing™, it can pair to the sensor for immediate display of core swing metrics on the watch – no smart phone or tablet needed. S20 and TruSwing™ make swing intelligence like face to target, club path and swing speed available to check right from your wrist.
It’s All the Watch You Need
As a bonus, the handsomely styled Approach S20 golf watch even tells you the time, so you can wear it as your everyday watch. Durable and water-rated to 5 ATM (50 meters), Approach S20 also features a built-in activity tracker with prompts to help keep you moving toward a healthier lifestyle. And for those who like to walk, there’s a built-in odometer to help keep track of how much ground you’ve covered.
