Garmin Approach S20 GPS Watch Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as my old Garmin. The watch keeps flipping to other holes and does not locate easily. I’m pretty disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Finds satellites quickly, accurate distances and has a super battery life. I wear it as my watch, and also utilize the step counter and calorie counter function in conjunction with the My Fitness Pal app. Very pleased with the capabilities and having worn it while swimming, I can verify it is waterproof.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok Golf Watch Can't find any courses I have us'ed this watch for about 10 rounds. Went to my local course and I got a message "No nearby courses". What??? I am standing on the first tee that I have used this watch on 10 times... I thought maybe it was just some issue with the satellites. NOPE, I went to one of the top Country Clubs in KC the next day and I got the same thing. I have been online trying to get a fix... No such luck. Pay $200 plus for this thing and it does not work. UGGH... How bad is this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome golf watch I bought this watch four weeks ago thinking that it would make my golfing life easier than using my viewfinder. It didn’t disappoint. In fact, the yardage to the front, middle, and back of the green was more helpful than I ever realized. Now, I won’t play without it. Keeping score on it is also very helpful and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought the S20 GPS Watch a month ago. I find it easy to use and accurate. I recently went to 2 new courses and the watch help me pick the correct club. I no longer have to guess the yardage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good for quick yardage I bought this Garmin because I have two other hand held products and wanted the watch style go I didn't have to carry the GPS.. Both are Garmin products. Only thing I'm not liking about the Approach is Hazard use only shows the first hazard, and not the second ones on most holes. Also not sure about the layup page. It is great for the quick look for yardage. But I still bring my other hand one to get a over all view of what is ahead on the hole. Most of my golfing friends have some form of a watch GPS. and like them a lot. So I wanted to give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is the third Garnin GPS golf watch I have purchased and each perform well. The yardage numbers are easy to read and they are very accurate. Watch is durable and easy to use.

can I get a replacement charger for the vivoactive watch?

Unfortunately, we do not sell the charger separately. The charging Clip/Data Cable connects via USB to your computer. We would recommend checking with the manufacture or trying an online search for just the charger.
