Garmin Approach S6 GPS Watch (Black)
Garmin Approach S6 GPS Watch features:
Features swing metrics: SwingTempo, TempoTraining and SwingStrength™
Dedicated CourseView button with Green View for manual pin positioning
PinPointer blind shot assistance tells you where the pin is, even if you can’t see it

Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green even if you are behind it. Use the color touchscreen to manually drag-and-drop the pin to the day’s location. As you move the pin, your distance-to-the-pin numbers will change respectively. This is especially helpful on par 3’s where you’ll be able to dial in the distance you need to fire away with confidence.
Aiding you further is the use of Customisable Distances. The S6 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.
The Garmin Approach S6 GPS Watch has handicap scoring options for individual holes, player’s local handicap or index/slope method. 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.
The Garmin Approach S6 GPS Watch is rugged and water rated to 5 ATM (50 meters), it displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly color touchscreen. And, it lets you manually position pins, get distances to doglegs and layups, customize yardage points (mark traps and hazards) and print digital scorecards for Stroke play and Stableford. Increasing the performance of this watch is the fact that the S6 features more battery life for longer play or more rounds. Easily get in a weekend of GPS golf with up to 10 hours in full GPS and up to 20 weeks, depending on mode, before the lithium-ion battery needs to be recharged.
The S6 may be Garmins lightest, thinnest golf watch, but they’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.
