A cool device for the Geo golfing geek! Enter the Approach S1, the first GPS wristwatch designed specifically for golf. The Approach S1 from gaarmin displays precise yardages to the front, back and middle of greens and comes preloaded with 14,000-plus courses. Here’s how it works… Once in golf mode, Approach S1 quickly acquires satellites and displays a list of nearby courses. Once a course is selected, three distances to each hole will always be provided – front, middle and back of the green – with those details being updated automatically and adjusted depending on the angle of approach. During the course of play, Approach S1 displays the hole number and par, and it automatically transitions from one hole to the next. Acting as a GPS-enabled odometer, Approach S1 helps golfers track the total ground they’ve covered on foot during each round (or even on a walk over lunch) so that they can see the true health benefits of leaving the cart in the clubhouse.
