Garmin Approach S60 GPS Golf Watch is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Watch Seems OK -- Documentation Is Terrible For many years I was a software programmer. Then I was a manager of software development. If I ever had a programmer who produced such terrible documentation, I would fire them immediately. The watch is VERY complex and the documentation does not even come close to explaning how to use its functionally. There are things that it does that are not mentioned. There are a number of videos but they are no better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly OK...A Few Quirks Been using for about 4 months. Generally works great but I have experienced issues with the device getting "stuck" and not advancing to the next holes. Usually I just manually advance it to the correct hole but at least a couple of times, that didn't work. I wish the scoring feature offered more options...fairway left/right, penalty, OB, etc. Without that, I use a different device for scoring details. Zooming in for distances to specific targets is nice, but can be kind of tight with a small device. But it's workable. Overall, very nice. Improves pace of play. Just some small things I wish were better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has good features I used it for the first time. Had some trouble adjusting starting hole on a shot gun start, 8th hole versus 1 and then 1 versus 18. So far I am happy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Issues So far the results have been mixed. The watch repeatedly jumps to the wrong hole. In addition the yardage’s listed to the front and the back of the greens are incorrect. I shoot the flag with a laser range finder and several times based on the s60 the flag isn’t even located on the green. The watch routinely uses at least 50%or more of the battery in one round. I updated the software and will give it one more try and if no improvement it will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features The metronome is great before the round. Very accurate GPS. Plays like distance is more than arrows, but distances change.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Syncing Problem Very difficult setting up (synching) watch with mobile app. Garmin Express does not support Approach S60. "Sending Software Update" has been showing for 3 days. On watch, can't get pass 3 screen:language, wrist, mileage. Absolutely frustrating!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from S60 Ok but could be better Golf Good: I like its use of elevations to compute the 'plays like' distances I like the auto shot distance calculations. There are plenty of statistics available but the few times I've tried to keep stats, it seemed too distracting. Perhaps, after several times the data input would be more automatic and not slow the round down. Not good: Thought there would be distance to hazard readings as advertised in the marketing https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/554662 "Quickly gets your location using GPS to show precise yardages to greens, hazards and doglegs" Seems like the only way to get distance to hazards is to fat finger the small screen. I have a Garmin S7 that provides the info at a fraction of the cost. I play the senior tees and discovered there a number of local courses for which only white or white and blue tees are provided. Not a big deal unless I'm keeping track of my handicap (another potential problem area as I thought handicap calculation would be automatic after a number of rounds.) Fitness: Good In general, I like the ability to keep track of fitness goals like miles and calories. Garmin Connect seems to do a pretty good job of collecting and reporting the info. Not so Good: There are a few apps for which calories don't seem to be calculated; for example strength. I purchased the Garmin heart rate monitor thinking the watch would use it as a factor in computing calories like some other products out there. I also purchased the components for biking - cadence and speed monitors. They seem to be used to compute mileage and calories on my spin bike but not sure how useful they are on the road bike. I called support to try and get more info on what metrics were used and couldn't get a straight answer. Summary: The watch has many many features and, overall, I find it useful for my activities; biking, spinning and golf even though there is room for improvement. Would also be nice to have distances to hazards, all tee box choices available and better use of the heart rate monitor for computing calories for strenuous work that don't involve traveling from point a to b. Not sure support is up on all the functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does it all Exceeded my expectations. Only played 1 round but it was easy to use. Love the touch screen with ability to pinpoint hole location. Non golf features are also impressive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product but the video support doesn’t work! I bought the product based on reviews and so far it is great. I hoped to learn more through the video links provided in the welcome email but none of them work. Found answers in the manual but still annoyed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from first review I have used this device for approx10 rounds to date. while it has many features, I am frustrated with it's consistency. The watch will not continuously display the base yardages I need.(center of green and front and back yardages). The s60 switches to other modes with out warning and I either need to reboot the watch, o rcontinue to fiddle with either a target that moves without reason. sometimes it will not give any yardage at all and I have to ask someone in the foursome for their number.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easily exceeds my old fitbit. My family got it for me for Fathers Day. I have not used it for golf yet, but that is coming soon. So many features on it, it will take me a while to learn how to have them functional and effortless. I'll write another review after golf.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some issues When you get the watch its set in metres not yards. So it takes 1 game to figure out you have a problem. Once you set it to yards it works....but...still different yardage then my friends with bushnells with slope. Is the slope set automatically or do you have to set it?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Jury is still out I love the look and feel of S60 but I am still having some trouble using it on the course. When keeping score, the S60 is supposed to be noting distance of clubs and kkeping score but often it jumps to the next hole without scoring. Just as often, before I putt out, it wants my final score and if I wait, the S60 already moves to the nbext hold with no way of returning the previous hold to enter a score. Garmin should have a better, more detailed, manual as these issues are not addressed in the manual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Withdraw my participation Please remove my name attached to the Garmin - Approach S60 since I have returned it to the store where I bought it. It was of no value to me since I planned to use it on unfamiliar courses when I travel. Problem: it has to be recharged attached to a computer. Don't travel with one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good - but room for improvement For the most part a solid product with excellent functionality but there are some important (IMO) short comings that should be addressed. 1) Buttons frequently get accidentally pushed during the golf swing. Locking the buttons during the activity helps but that also locks the touch screen which is annoying to have to unlock several times on each hole. And sometimes the swing will accidentally unlock the buttons anyways. It really needs push guards built into the case as well as buttons that are not so sensitive. 2) The touch screen only works with your finger so it's difficult to get any kind of accuracy when trying to get yardages to any particular point on the course map or moving pin locations. One should be able to use a tee or something with a finer point to select locations on the touch screen. 3) The tempo measurement and shot detection functionality does poorly with an overly active pre-shot motion. You have to hold the club very still for a second or two before the back swing - which can be very unnatural (and is not recommended by most instructors). I hate to sound overly critical since it really is a solid product otherwise.
