Rugged and waterproof, the GPS Garmin Approach S3 golf watch is packed with data about tens of thousands of links around the world. It displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly touchscreen. It lets you manually position pins, get distances to dog-legs and lay-ups, customise yardage points as well as print digital scorecards for Stroke play and Stableford. 

Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green. Use the touchscreen to manually move the pin to the day's location. This is especially helpful on par 3s where you'll be able to dial in the distance you need and fire away with confidence.

Into addition to all the preloaded info, you can download free course updates just as soon as they become available.
