Garmin Approach S3 golf watch knows 27,000 courses

You’ve bought the best gear and practice regularly, but if you need a little extra help on the green, Garmin has you covered

Golf is one of those sports where good kit actually makes a big difference to your game. So Garmin's upgraded its S1 golf watch to create the Garmin Approach S3 – a watch that knows 27,000 courses world wide. And it knows all of them better than you.

The touchscreen watch uses GPS to pinpoint your location on the course, advising you on layup distances, green overviews, and precise yardages to the front, back and middle of the green. And since the Garmin Approach S3 comes packing an 8-hour battery life and a compact waterproof shell, you’ll have no more excuses for missing those birdies. Unless the US$350 pricetag seems too much of a handicap for you, of course.
