Modern technology gives us many things.

Garmin’s Approach S4 GPS Golf Watch is like a caddy on your wrist


s4approach2Garmin’s latest GPS golf watch can give you every advantage on the course as well as displaying notifications from your iPhone right there on your wrist.

The Garmin Approach S4 has more than 30,000 international courses pre-loaded into the onboard memory with lifetime course updates at no additional cost or subscription fee.

The device has a high-resolution touchscreen that is still easily readable even in bright sunlight.

And with Garmin’s ever-reliable GPS on board, the Approach S4 Golf Watch can give players accurate distances to the front, middle and back of the green along with lay-up, dogleg and individual shot distances.

The Approach S4 can also keep track of your score and your match statistics – like fairways hit and the number of putts on each green – as you move from hole to hole.

On top of that the product can also act like a smartwatch and link wirelessly with your iPhone to push notifications like emails and text messages right to your wrist while the mobile is nestled safely in your golf bag.

On the golf course, the Approach S4 can be a handy tool that provides a wealth of information to help you make the right decision about your next shot.

There is even a dedicated button to access Green View – a screen that shows the actual shape and layout of the green with the ability to drag the pin using the touchscreen to match that day’s pin placement.

And because there are tens of thousands of international courses onboard, the Garmin Approach S4 can be used anywhere in the world.

Also under the hood is an odometer and timer so golfers can also check how far they’ve walked and the how long they are taking to play their round.

Garmin’s Approach S4 is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that can run for up to 10 hours in golf mode between charges so you can easily get through a round or two.

The Garmin Approach S4 GPS Golf Watch is available now and is priced at $399.
