See 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 where you are — and how far you are from the next pin. 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. You can also measure yardages for shots played from anywhere on the course.

AutoShot Round Analyzer

On the course, the Approach S20’s AutoShot round analyzer tracks shots3, measures distance and records shot locations for post-round analysis on Garmin Connect™.

Garmin Connect 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.

Green View Display

The Green View feature on your Approach S20 shows you the true shape and layout of the green, even if you’re behind it. You can manually reposition the pin to today’s location for accurate shot selection.

Keep a Digital Scorecard

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.

Smartphone Notifications

Never miss another important text, email or alert just because your smartphone is tucked away somewhere in your bag. Approach S20 acts as a wireless extension of your compatible smart device, 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.

Extra-long Battery Life

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.

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.

You can also get americangolf to price match this inshore.
the reviews say that is not quite there yet and needs a bit of work to iron out the bugs, that said as soon as they do I will buy one
I've got one I haven't really had many issues so far it's a step up from the s4 in terms of features and looks.
how does this compare to s6 approach watch?
