Approach S2 is a stylish and comfortable GPS golf watch with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver giving precise distances to the front, back and middle of greens. The S2 has the ability to measure shot distances, and also includes a course odometer to measure your total walking distance during your round. It's similar to our popular Approach S1 model, but the S2 takes it up a notch with layup and dogleg distances and a digital scorecard.
Courses with Free Course Updates
Approach S2 is preloaded with more than 40,000 International courses. Whether you're on a course near home, a course at a holiday resort or the Old Course at St. Andrews, the S2 knows where you are and how far you have to go.
Every Approach S2 includes free lifetime course updates, without additional subscriptions. Updates are added up to 4 times a year and are available through CourseView Updater.
Enjoy the game don't slow it down
Using S2 you can concentrate 100% on your game - no complicated setup, no searching for the right golf course or specific hole, so your playing partners won't be affected. Before you start to play; just switch on S2, it detects which golf course you are on and even transfers you automatically from one hole to the next. Ensuring you're receiving the correct information for the hole you are on. Just enjoy the game.
Lock In and Measure Distances
The high-sensitivity GPS receiver gives you distances to the front, middle and back of the green, plus layup and dogleg distances to improve usability over the entire hole.
It also measures precise distances for shots played from anywhere on the course. And for those who like to walk, there's an odometer to track how far you've gone.
Approach S2 easily keeps track of your score throughout your round. When you're done, use the included USB cable to connect S2 to your computer to download, store and print your scorecards. Then, chart your progress, or brag to your friends.

Approach S2 comes preloaded with 3 regions containing more than 40,000 courses from around the world. Free course updates are available from Garmin Express and make full coverage available for all of the countries illustrated on the map in blue. However, because of memory limitations and the continuous increase of golf course coverage, the update can only be performed for 2 preloaded maps. When updating courses, Garmin Express allows for the selection of any 2 of the 3 regions to update at 1 time onto the device. Once updated, the S2 can store any 2 of the 3 regions on the device. Regions can always be changed at a later time.
