Garmin launches new Approach S60
Garmin has announced the launch of its Approach S60, its newest GPS golf watch with a sunlight–readable colour touchscreen display and a sleek new design.
Preloaded with more than 40,000 courses from around the world with lifetime updates, the S60 features full–colour course view mapping that golfers can view right from their wrist.
It provides quick access to critical information needed during a round like precise yardages to greens, hazards and doglegs.
The Approach S60 also features the popular QuickFit™ watchbands that can be easily interchanged in seconds, without tools.
They’re available in an assortment of coloured silicone, leather or stainless steel styles, and can be interchanged with a number of Garmin multisport watches, including the popular fēnix 5 series.
The Approach S60 is one of the many Garmin golf watches compatible with the new Garmin Golf app that lets users compete in weekly leaderboards on any golf course. This free app allows users to compete against friends and fellow golfers on the same course, plus view other players’ rank, score, handicap and more.
Players can set up their own tournament event and invite multiple friends to compete, plus they can chat with each other and post their results for others to see.
Using the Approach S60, players can also utilize the app for live scoring as they’re playing their round; scores entered on the device will automatically sync to the app for instant updates as they play.
The Approach S60 also features SwingTempo that measures the relationship between upswing and downswing, and TempoTraining that uses a 3:1 ratio and gives the user vibrations to synchronize their swing mechanics and fine–tune their swing tempo.
When paired with the Garmin TruSwing™ sensor, it can also provide the user with swing speed and club path angles to improve their swing consistency.
Doubling as an all-day activity tracker2, the Approach S60 works with the Garmin Connect mobile app to monitor and record daily steps, calories burned, distance and sleep, with move alerts to keep users active throughout the day.
