DESIGNED TO TURN ON WHEN YOU TEE OFF.

We’ve got your game with Approach S12, a GPS golf watch that lets you keep it simple on the course.

Sun on your screen? Not a problem, thanks to this watch’s sunlight-readable display.

You might never play 42,000 courses, but this watch has them preloaded just in case.

Club with confidence when you know the distance to the front, middle and back of the green.

Forget the scorecard. Keep track on your watch and upload to the Garmin Golf app.

Play from sunup to sundown with a battery life that lasts up to 30 hours.

Get back to basics on the course.

SUNLIGHT READABLE

The new round watch design offers a high-resolution screen that’s easily readable on even the sunniest days.

42,000+ PRELOADED COURSES

Your watch comes preloaded with more than 42,000 CourseView maps of golf courses around the world. Wirelessly download updates for the course you play most often.

TAKE A SWING

Pair with full set of Approach CT10 club tracking sensors for more tracking capabilities (sold separately).

GO GREEN

Quickly reference the front, middle and back of the green so you have all the data you need for the perfect shot.

KNOW WHAT TO AVOID

The course maps give distances to hazards and doglegs so you know exactly where they’re hiding no matter where you stand on the course.

KEEP SCORE

Your watch keeps score so you can always know where you stand. Upload directly to the Garmin Golf app1 to participate in weekly leaderboards.

BATTERY LIFE

Internal, rechargeable battery provides up to 30 hours in GPS mode.
