Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid I went from a hand held Garmin to the S20 about mid-season after I thought I’d lost the hand held. I later found it, but it will be an emergency backup now. Convenience factor with the watch is much higher from not losing it to recharging. Easy to read in any light and has added features such as tracking distance walked, steps, etc., if you care about that. Yardage is always spot on.

Asked by: Sun1shine

However, you do have the ability to pair it to the phone using are Garmin Connect Mobile app to get features such as automatic course updates and smart notifications (text messages, emails and phone calls) on the watch.

how do I set the date?

Asked by: robbie
Approach series devices have a GPS feature that allows the device to track your location when performing activities. This GPS feature can also be used when setting the time and date on your device. During the initial set up, or anytime the time and date is not displayed correctly, the device will need to acquire a satellite signal in order to update the time and date. To acquire a satellite signal: 1.Take the Approach outside, with a clear view of the sky. 2.Start a round of golf. Once the Approach acquires a signal, it will display a list of available courses. When this occurs the time and date will also be updated. For more information and instructions on updating the time and date on your device using GPS or manually, refer to the full Owner's Manual. For more information contact us at or visit our Support Center, Thanks Jenny

Can you selectively control which text messages/calls appear on watch by filtering by contacts? or will watch show me all texts/calls. I'd like to minimize if possible.

Asked by: Ryan
It does not appear there is a way to filter notifications by contacts.
