Our Garmin Approach S2 Review will be available as soon as we get some customer feedback on the latest golf watch from Garmin. If the success of the previous two offerings from Garmin are any indication, the Approach S2 is likely to be found on or near the top of our ratings leaderboard in no time.

Garmin Approach S2 User Rating:
4.41 Stars 4.41 out of 5 (924 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

The Garmin Approach S2 should hit the sweet spot with both price and features for many users. Like the Garmin S3, the S2 will have distances to doglegs and layups, as well as the digital scorecard. It does not include the touchscreen or manual pin positioning, but the price difference will make that an easy choice for many golfers.
