The Approach S5 is the slim, lightweight feature-packed GPS golf watch with with high resolution colour screen with Touch Targeting on a full course display and Handicap Scoring
Remove the Guesswork
S5 features full-colour course views for more than 40,000 international courses without extra fees or paid subscriptions. In addition you'll be able to download free couse updates whenever they become available. Preview doglegs, traps, bunkers and water hazards and pin position from wherever you are on the course, or in the clubhouse.
Instant, Simple and Precise
S5 delivers what a golfer wants - it automatically detects the golf course and handles hole to hole transition. On the course it shows at any time correct yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly colour touchscreen. It measures distances to doglegs and layups, customised yardage points (mark bunkers and hazards).
Get on the Green
Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green, even if you are behind it. Use the colour touchscreen to manually drag-and-drop the pin to the day’s location. As you move the pin, your distance-to-the-pin numbers will change respectively. This is especially helpful on par 3’s where you’ll be able to view the distance you need to fire away with confidence.
Keep Handicaps, Scores and Measure Shots
S5 has handicap scoring options for individual holes, player’s local handicap or index/slope method. Scoring options include Stroke play and Stableford, and you can save, review, share and print scorecards from your computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature. S5 even allows comprehensive stat tracking – keep track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round.
Stay Discretely Connected
Never miss another text, email or alert just because your smartphone is safely stored in your bag. S5 acts as a weireless extension of your smartphone1 displaying whatever your phone does, right on your watch. S5 can keep you discretely updated at all times, even when you're half way through a hole.
Longer Life Battery
S5 features extended battery life for longer play or additional rounds. Easily get in a weekend of GPS golf with up to 10 hours in full GPS or up to 12 weeks, depending on mode, before the lithium-ion battery needs to be recharged. Even heavy rain and harsh conditions are no problem for the quality-built 5 ATM (50 metres) water-rated watch.
