Garmin Approach® S4 GPS Golf Watch Details

Instant, Simple, Precise

Rugged and waterproof to 10 meters, the Garmin Approach® S4 golf watch is packed with more than 30,000 international courses. It displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly touchscreen. And, it lets you manually position pins, get distances to doglegs and layups, customize yardage points (mark traps and hazards), and print digital scoreboards for Stroke Play and Stableford.

Dedicated Green View Button

S4 features a dedicated Green View button, which takes you to the Green View screen in 1 push, no more scrolling through the menu. Green View gives you the true shape from wherever you are on the course, even if you're behind it.

Touch and Move the Pin

Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green even if you are behind it. On that screen, you can use the touchscreen to manually move the pin to the day's location. This is especially helpful on par 3s where you'll be able to dial in the distance you need to fire away with confidence.

Smart Notification

Never miss another text, email or RSS alert just because your smartphone is in the cart (or deep in your bag). S4 acts as a wireless extension of your iPhone® device, displaying whatever your phone does, right on your watch. Now you can read that email or text you've been waiting for wirelessly - even in the middle of the fairway.

Longer Battery Life

S4 features more battery life for longer play or more rounds. Get up to 10 hours in full GPS and 6 weeks in watch mode before the lithium-ion battery needs to be recharged.

Preloaded Courses and Free Updates

The S4 may be the size of a typical sports watch, but we've preloaded it with more than 30,000 international courses - without extra fees or paid subscriptions. In addition, you'll be able to download free course updates whenever they become available.

Customize Distances

Approach S4 gives you distances to the front, back and center of the green, as well as distances to doglegs. It also allows you to input and save customizable yardage points - such as water hazards or bunkers - from anywhere on the course.

Keep Score and See How Far

S4 has digital scorecard options for individual players. Scoring options include Stroke Play and Stableford, and you can save, review, share and print scorecards from your computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature.

Everyday Watch with Style

The S4 functions as an everyday watch, with an odometer to see how far you walk. A round timer also is included to keep track of how long it takes you to play 18 holes.
