Why you should buy the Garmin Approach S2 golf GPS Rangefinder >>
The Approach S2 golf GPS watch of Garmin is a lightweight, easy to use, comfortable and flexible enough for everyday wear. It has an attractive look and sleek design. With the Garmin Approach, you simply turn it on and it finds the course automatically. In-terms of aesthetics, this is a much made GPS watch. Distances are consistently on target and for most part accurate.
The Garmin Approach S2 has a variety of colorful bands available to customize its look. It works also like a normal watch and you can set an alarm for your start tee time. Overall the quality is good, although it could be more robust. If you are a woman or have a small wrist, don’t worry, the Approach S2 has a women version. Just make sure you get the white one with white purple trim. This is perfect for women and looks absolutely beautiful.
Description of Garmin Approach S2 golf GPS Features
The Garmin golf watch model Approach S2 is a very comfortable and stylish GPS watch. It gives precise yardage to the middle, front, and back of greens using its high sensitivity GPS receiver. The Garmin S2 also has the capability to give shot distances.
In fact the Garmin S2 can measure next to the distance to green (front, middle, and back), the distances to doglegs and layup yardage. The integrated auto date, time, and an alarm, will never let you miss your tee time. And for those who like to walk, there’s an odometer to track how far you’ve gone.
The Approach S2 comes with a score-card that easily keeps track of your score throughout your round. Scoring option include Stroke Play for a single player. When you’re done, you can use the computer scorecard review to save and review scores on your computer
The Garmin Approach S2 comes preloaded with 38,000 worldwide courses. The Approach S2 golf watch measures 1.8″ x 2.7″ x 0.6″ inches and weighs 1.8 oz (battery included). The rechargeable Lithium polymer battery gives you 8 to 10 hours of play and for a full round of 18 holes it should be enough to finish easily. No matter your location, the Garmin S2 knows where you are and how far you need to go.
Our Recommendation for you>>!
Choose the Approach S2 of Garmin if you are looking for quick and basic distance information with unrestricted updates and an enormous database of courses. If you want the end of the fairway distances or hazards you may have to look at another golf GPS watch as this watch does not have that option. I recommend it for quick and accurate distance to front/middle/back of green for an affordable price.
Garmin Approach S2 golf Versus Garmin Approach S1 and S1W
It’s similar to our popular Approach S1 model, but the S2 takes it up a notch with layup and dogleg distances and a digital scorecard. The Garmin Approach S2 strap is much more comfortable than the S1.
