Garmin Approach S10 - Read Full Review

The Garmin Approach S10 is the one we've been waiting for! It's small, lightweight, and simple to use. It doesn't try to be a multi-sport watch or a smartwatch. It puts the focus squarely on golf. On the main screen, you will see distances to the front, middle, and back of the green, plus the hole number and par. The shape of the green is also right there on the same screen. Many golfers will never even need to touch the watch after starting a round. If you need hazard information, it's one screen away. You can also keep score on this watch and upload your scores to Garmin Express so your playing history is always available. Although this golf watch has all the features most golfers want, for those looking for stats or hole views, Garmin has other golf watches you will want to check out.

Bushnell Ion 2 - Read Full Review

The Bushnell iON 2 replaces the Bushnell Neo iON. Although they have dropped the "Neo", they haven't changed the watch all that much. That said, the addition of Bluetooth and automatic updating of golf courses is a significant improvement of an already solid golf watch. The other change is that the watch band is reversible. With the Bushnell iON 2, you get distances to the front, middle, and back of every green plus up to four hazards and layups per hole. As with almost all golf GPS devices, you can measure shot distance with the iON 2. The battery can last up to 3 rounds or 12 hours. The Bushnell smartphone app also provides hole layouts with distance and flyovers. You cannot keep score or track your stats, but it does track your steps. We think it's main competition is the Garmin S10.

Garmin Approach S20 - Read Full Review

We've put the Garmin S20 at the top of our list because it's an outstanding golf watch at very low price point. Besides that, it's a worthy activity and sleep tracker and can aslo recieve notifications from your smartphone. As a golf watch, it provides distance to the front, middle, and back of the green on the main screen, as well as the green shape. You can manually adjust the pin placement and you can also view distances to the front and back of hazards as well as doglegs. There's a feature called AutoShot that automatically records the distance of your shots. When you combine the watch stats with Garmin Connect, your post-game analysis gets really interesting. It can also pair up with Garmin TruSwing™ if you want swing metrics. We love that it automatically updates courses you play regularly, looks and feels better than most golf watches, and it has 15 hours of battery life in GPS mode or 8 weeks in activity mode!

The wristband can be ordered separately on Amazon.

AutoShot tracking measures and records your shot distances automatically. It has a scorecard and stat-tracking. Activity tracking shows steps, distance, calories burned, heart rate and activity intensity. If that's not enough, you can get notifications from your smartphone.
