- Garmin Approach S1 Golf Watch – Read our full review
Garmin was the first to come up with a golf GPS watch and it has been a huge success. This watch was designed to do only basics, but it does them very well. It provides distances to the front, middle and back of every green on over 18,000 golf courses (preloaded). It’s always with you and you rarely have to touch it. It’s the ultimate in convenience and simplicity and users love it.

Building on the success of the S1, Garmin added a new watch in 2012 that has several new features.

Navigating the screens can be done with a glove-friendly touchscreen. It even has an image of the green shape with manual pin positioning and a scorecard.
