Garmin Approach S1 golf wristwatch


UPDATE: Check out my Garmin Approach S1 resource page, with links to hands on reviews and more.

Garmin has announced a Forerunner-like sportswatch for golfers, the Approach S1. Listing for $249.99, the S1 will offer golfers an easy to carry device that provides basic stats, rather than full maps of courses. S1 users will be able to display the (constantly updated) distance to the front, back and middle of greens for 14,000 preloaded courses in the US and Canada.

  1. Ross Riley says:

    Garmin Approach S1 is advertised as never needing update downloads. Not true.
    On my third try to install download. Wish I had never bought the sorry piece.

    • I was going to ask where it said that, but I checked their S1 page and it says “There’s no need for subscriptions, downloads or additional set up – S1 is ready to tee off out of the box.”

      Did you finally get the update to work?
