Garmin Approach S3 Watch Reviews:

Since I started using the approach S3 my score has been improving. I just think in my swing I no longer think if I have the correct distance to the pin. Now I am more focused on my swing than in the distance.

The S3 GPS watch by Garmin is by far the most useful purchase I have ever used in golf. It is so reliable and handy. I can’t believe how nice it is to step to my ball and instantly know which club to use. I have enjoyed it so much over the last few weeks and it is very easy to operate. Thanks Garmin for such a great product!

I was wary to try this product as I prefer NOT to wear anything on my hands or wrists while playing. I found, however, that this watch is so light and comfortable that I don’t even notice it out on the course.

This device is fabulous – extreme convenience is worth every penny. I had been using a Skycaddie for years. The Garmin watch is far more convenient right on your wrist whether you’re walking, riding, carrying, or mixing it up. Most of my friends are switching from a handheld to the S3 state of the art device. There’s no going back. Strongly recommend.
