Our full Garmin Approach S10 Review will be available soon, but for now, check it out!

We are thrilled that Garmin finally has a new basic golf watch. We think this will be the best-selling golf watch on the market for awhile to come.

Garmin Approach S10 User Rating: 4.56 Stars 4.56 out of 5 (965 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

Why? Because it does everything most golfers want in a golf watch and it’s lightweight and compact. 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. If you need hazard information, it’s one screen away. Many golfers won’t ever touch the watch after starting a round. A simple glance will tell them what they need to know.

You can also keep score on this watch and upload your scores to Garmin Express so your playing history is always available. It doesn’t offer a way of tracking your stats, so if you are looking for that feature, check out Garmin’s other golf watches.

Let’s start with the Garmin Approach S10 noteworthy features:
  • Distances to the front, middle, and back of the green.
  • Green shape from your point of view.

  1. Tom Weckworth says

    Can’t manually go back or forward on holes. If the device advances holes too soon there’s no way to manually return to present hole.
    A huge problem!!

    • Golf Rangefinder Shop says

      Hi Tom. I believe there is a way to move between holes. I just can’t find the instructions for how to do it right now. I’ll keep looking, but please let me know if you figure it out.

  2. Does this have a watch feature
