Garmin S3 GPS Golf Watch (Black)

  • The Garmin Approach S3 GPS Golf Watch is a high-sensitivity GPS receiver packaged in a lightweight, flexible sport watch, to give you distance information to the front, back and middle of the greens, along with so many more benefits.
  • Using the Garmin Approach S3 GPS watch is now even easier thanks to the course detection feature. It will therefore automatically select from one of the 30,000+ pre-loaded golf courses which are being updated and added to all the time.
  • To view a list of all courses currently mapped by Garmin click here. New courses are always being added and you can update the Garmin S3 GPS using the supplied data lead (although you will find most of them already on there).
  • This is Garmin's first GPS Golf watch which has high resolution touchscreen capabilities. The glove friendly touchscreen allows you to change between measurements and you score quickly and easily using the access buttons while the back light allows you to see your yardages clearly in various weather conditions.
  • As well as the yardages to the front, middle and back of the green the Approach S3 now lets you see distances to doglegs. S3 also allows players to input and save customizable yardage points - like water hazards or bunkers - from anywhere on the course. The new Green View display shows you the shape of the green which also allows you to move the pin to the position for a more accurate yardage so you can hit a precise yardage to the pin.
  • You can now create and save your own yardage point on the golf course so you can highlight bunkers, water and other hazards.
  • One of the fantastic features found in the S3 watch, which is not found in the previous model, is the round timer. The Garmin S3 also allows you to measure individual shot distances and calculate the total distance walked around the golf course.
  • Monitoring your scores around the course is now easier with the new amazing digital scorecard option which you are able to print out after your round to monitor your progress on the golf course.
  • Seeing the high resolution touchscreen is now easier to read in all weather conditions thanks to a changeable background display, so you can pick which ever suits your eye best.
  • Fitted with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which lasts up to 4 weeks in watch mode and 8 hours in GPS mode. Recharging your Garmin Approach S3 GPS is easy, just recharge the S3 via the supplied adaptor or even from your computer using the supplied lead.
  • Included in every box is your Garmin Approach S3 watch, USB/Charging Cable, AC Adapter and instruction manual.
  • The Garmin Approach S3 compliant with R&A rules. Permitted when Local Rule is in effect (see R&A Decision 14-3/0.5).
  • There's no need for subscription fees, downloads or additional set up charges. The S3 comes with FREE lifetime course updates and charges.

      Absolutely wonderful bit of kit to have with you not playing golf or playing golf to start up the time you need to go outside and wait till the satellite signals to set up the correct time and date so quick charging time and lasts a long time comfortable and reliable on the course I would recommend this to all golfers out there

        Comments about Garmin S3 GPS Golf Watch (Black):

        I recently purchased the S3 after a few years of using a skycaddie. One of the main reasons for the switch was the annual fee from skycaddie. I wasn't sure about wearing a watch to start with as I was concerned I would notice it and affect my swing. There have been no such problems though, you barely notice it after a few holes.
        Performance wise it is outstanding, instant reading as soon as you look at it and so much easier to just look at your wrist rather than talking a normal GPS out of your pocket. I checked the accuracy against the skycaddie and it was spot on so there will be no going back for me.

            It's quick to see your distances .easy to use,
            I just can't fault it,
            I still own the s1 model as well that I wear every day as an odometer,
            The one thing you have to do is believe the distance it says as I've come up short a few times by not taking enough club,

            Comments about Garmin S3 GPS Golf Watch (Black):

            This garmin approach S3 watch is a great addition to your golf bag. It loads up courses quickly and easily, and really helps to decide what club to hit. The watch looks good and feels great on the wrist, and has no effect on the golf swing.
            The measure shot feature is a very good idea, and makes you more aware of the yardages.
            On the course is where the watch really comes into its own, at any point you can just glance at your wrist and know exactly where the front middle and back of the green is.
            This is a great shot saving device which helps to ensure correct club selection and minimise those frustrating 'just short' or 'through the back of the green' moments.

            Comments about Garmin S3 GPS Golf Watch (Black):

            This garmin approach s3 watch is certainly a great addition to your golf bag. It loads up courses so easily, and really helps to decide what club to hit. I wasnt sure when it was purchased how the touch screen would work, but i was proved wrong. Even with gloves on the sensitivitey was just right and i just love using it. The battery life is very good as well, lasting for ages! The watch looks and feels great on my wrist, and doesnt hinder my swing at all. However, i must ssay that i was expecting more from the scorecard, as i found it a bit fiddly. That was the only downside though, apart from the slightly fiddly unlock. But the measure shot feature is a great idea, and has made me much more aware about my yardages.
            Overall a great product!
