NCG TESTS: Garmin Approach S1 watchFebruary, 2012 Equipment
NCG's team of experts review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the Garmin Approach S1 watch...
WHAT WE THOUGHT
A fantastic, innovative device that is genuinely hard to fault. It is essentially a watch that doubles up as a GPS device, giving you numbers to the front, middle and back of the green. It is small and light so doesn’t hinder the swing, and both affordable and stylish. If numbers are all you need (it’s ideal for playing on courses you know) there are few devices better. If you want more information, perhaps Garmin’s new Approach G6 is a better option.
