Garmin S1 Approach GPS watch


Garmin have launched the new S1 Approach - the world's first golf GPS wristwatch.

The satnav experts have expanded their golf range with the introduction of the S1 Approach, which offers golfers the smallest and most convenient GPS device around.

It comes preloaded with nearly 5,000 European courses with no additional subscription or download fees and the watch is ready to go as soon as you press "start round".

It gives distances to the front, middle and back of each green, can measure individual shot distances and has an in-built odometer to record the total distance you've travelled during your round.

It is waterproof and features a rechargeable battery - oh, and it can also be used as a watch too!

The S1 Approach carries an RRP of £179.99. For more information visit
