Garmin Approach® S60 PREMIUM GPS Watch


Garmin Approach® S60 PREMIUM GPS Watch

$ 499.99

Look good on and off the course. The Approach® S60 golf watch gives you the critical information you need for your round — displayed on a large, 1.2-inch sunlight readable color touchscreen — so you can master your game. And with convenient QuickFit™ bands, you can change your style without tools to match your activity, so you’re always in fashion.

Keep Track. And Keep Score

With more sensors to improve detection accuracy, AutoShot game tracking automatically detects¹ along the fairway and records distances for post-game analysis on Garmin Connect™.

Keep Track

Know Your Course

Approach S60 comes preloaded with maps for more than 40,000 golf courses around the world, and it offers automatic downloads1 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.

Know Your Course

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.

Reach the Pin

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.

Know Your Swing

Personal Timepiece, Personal Touches
