You might not ever have a tasty lemonade-and-iced tea beverage named after you, but you can still gain an edge on the links with the Garmin Approach S4 golf GPS watch on your wrist. It features a high-resolution, glove-friendly touchscreen that's readable even in bright sunlight. You can see the true shape and layouts of greens and map pin locations with your fingertip, to help take the mystery out of your next shot choice. It'll also help you track your stats and keep you abreast of incoming texts and emails. And you can tee up nearly anywhere around the globe with the S4's 30,000-plus preloaded international courses at your disposal.
Extra-long battery life
The watch's built-in GPS receiver finds you automatically and stays dialed in to your location. When you're having a long day on the course, you don't want your device to run out of steam before you do. The Approach S4's built-in rechargeable battery offers up to 10 hours of juice in GPS mode, or 6 weeks as a regular watch.
Versatile and reliable
The Approach S4's waterproof construction lets you enjoy it in rough weather and around pools, lakes, and rivers. You get an odometer to track how far you've walked and a round timer to monitor how long it takes to get through 18 holes. And the alarm clock feature can help ensure you never miss an early tee time.
Dedicated Green View button
Don't waste time scrolling through the menu to find the Green View — just tap the Approach S4's dedicated Green View button, and you're right there. You'll see the true shape from wherever you are on the course, even if you're behind it or have an obstructed view. You can even touch and drag the pin to the day's location to make things easier on those tough par 3 holes.
Know the distance to go the distance
The Approach S4 gives you distances to the front, back, and center of the green, plus distances to doglegs and layups. You can even add and save customizable yardages for bunkers and hazards from anywhere on the course. One glance at your wrist offers you a wealth of information with clear, easy-to-read numbering.
Track your stats
Want to analyze your game for future improvement? The Approach S4 lets you track your putts per round, greens and fairways hit, and average distance of your strokes. It also offers digital scorecard options for individual players, including Stroke Play and Stableford. You can save, review, and print scorecards from your computer. Use the Measure Shot feature to tell you exactly how far the ball went next time you hit a monster.
Smart Notification for iPhone® users
If you're worried about missing important texts, calls, alerts, and emails on the course, Garmin's got you covered. You can pair the Approach S4 with your iPhone (4S or newer) through Bluetooth® low energy and receive notifications directly on the watch's face, so you can safely leave your phone in your bag.
Out of the box and onto the cart
Garmin's extensive course database comes already loaded on the Approach S4, so you won't need any subscriptions or additional downloads to enjoy it. Simply charge it up, throw on your plaid pants, and you're ready to go. You can obtain new course update downloads directly from Garmin's website.
