What we say...
Garmin are the market-leaders when it comes to golf watches and even their entry model, the Garmin Approach S10, will really help your golf game.
The Garmin Approach S10 may not offer as many features as some of the more expensive golf watches on the market, but for the price, it is a fantastic golf watch.
The Garmin Approach S10 comes preloaded with 41,000 worldwide golf courses and the watch will automatically identify the course you’re playing using your GPS location.
The Approach S10 provides accurate yardages to the front, middle and back of the green, as well as hazards and doglegs. It knows when you’ve finished the hole and will automatically display information for the next hole, so you don’t need to press anything.
The Garmin S10 golf watch itself is sleek and lightweight, while the high-resolution display is easy to read in all conditions.
You can use the Garmin Approach S10 to keep score, and it automatically adds up the total distance you’ve covered and the time you’ve spent playing.
The Garmin Approach S10 has a battery life of up to 12 hours, so it’s easily good enough for two rounds. It may even do three rounds, but you’re probably taking a risk of it running out during the third, so we’d recommend charging the watch after every two rounds.
The Garmin Approach S10 doesn’t track your game the way some of the pricier golf watches do, but you can use it to keep score during your round and then upload each round you play to Garmin Express to keep track of your scores throughout the season. There’s no extra cost for doing that.
