Garmin launches game-changing new GPS golf watch

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, has launched a game-changing new GPS Golf Watch, set to become the latest must have gadget for golfers everywhere looking to enhance their game. 

ApproachS6_HR_6001The Approach S6 GPS golf watch combines innovative new features with a slick and lightweight design, giving golfers everything they need on the driving range, on the tee and on the green. 

Equipped with innovative new technology such as SwingTempo, TempoTrainer and SwingStrength™, the S6 measures swing consistency and synchronisation giving golfers an accurate insight into their game and the ability to really improve their technique.

A dedicated CourseView button allows golfers to quickly and easily preview hole details like doglegs, bunkers and water hazards on its full colour, high-res touchscreen – a feature previously only available on Garmin golf handhelds.

Golfers can use a range of scoring options including Stroke play and Stablefd on their Approach S6, and later all their game statistics will be available to view on the Garmin Connect App for smartphones.

Loaded with over 30,000 international courses, the S6 also has Garmin’s GreenView technology, which shows golfers the exact layout of the green, and PinPointer, a great new feature that offers blind shot assistance, allowing golfers to line up their shot, even if they are in the woods or deep in the rough.

Despite being Garmin’s slimmest and lightest golf watch to date, the Approach S6 has an impressive 10 hours of battery life in full GPS mode. It can also be paired with the iPhone 4S model or later allowing golfers to discreetly receive texts, emails and call alerts to their watch. This will be followed up by Android compatibility, expected in summer 2014.

Water resistant to 50 metres and durable enough to withstand a rainstorm, the Approach S6 seamlessly bonds state of the art technology with great design, resulting in unrivaled wearability for even the most demanding of golfers.
