The Garmin Approach S1 combines a high-sensitivity GPS device with a lightweight, waterproof sports watch.

Available in black or white, the S1 provides distance information to the front, middle and back of almost 7,100 preloaded courses. You can track how far you walk on the course, measure individual shot distances and even use the alarm to get up for your early tee time.

The sunlight viewable screen features large numbers for easy visibility whilst also offering the ability to use the S1 as an odometer to measure how far you walk on and off the course, or simply measure an individual shot. Unlike many devices on the market, the S1 comes preloaded with courses so there is no need for any subscriptions, downloads or additional set-up. The Garmin S1 is ready for the course right out of the box.
