Garmin Approach S60 Review

For one of the best-looking, GPS smartwatches look at the Garmin Approach S60. A highlight for all users is the color touchscreen that is clear and visible when used indoors and outdoors. Athletes love the movable pin position that gives them a laser-like accuracy on the wrist. Furthermore, it is a dedicated golfer’s watch, but are all users pleased with this product—let us see.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • Golfers love the sunlight-readable touchscreen that has detailed hole maps with yardages available in full color.
  • Users found the more than 40k preloaded course maps with free lifetime updates a big help.
  • Golf users like the AutoShot function that automatically records their location and distance of each shot they make.
  • Executives cannot stop talking about the notifications, emails, text and more to view on their wrist—this allows them to enjoy their golf without missing important calls. Another added benefit they love is the fact that you can switch the notifications off.
  • Newbie golfers found the TempoTraining feature a help as it aids in getting their swing rhythm fine-tuned while practicing.
  • Swimmers, cyclists, and runners found the watch useful as it does not only cater to the golfer's needs.
  • The majority of users found the wearable comfortable to wear with day and nightwear.
  • Professional sports users found the menus available on the timepiece intuitive and functional.
  • The initial setup of the watch is easy and loved by all users. Even navigating through the menus is straightforward.
  • While the Garmin Approach S60 is dedicated golfer watch customers found it a big help to use while running, working out in the gym and cycling.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • The biggest negative for golfers is the fact that it only indicated if the lie is downhill or uphill and does not give you the actual elevation measurements.
  • Another complaint is that the watch does not hold a round of 36-holes and best to pause the app between rounds.


The Approach S60 might not be able to help you win your golf, but is a great help on the golf course. The GPS watch is not cheap but is loaded with some great features to help any newbie and professional golfer out. The good news is that you can use it to keep track of your running, cycling, and more.
