Garmin have announced the addition of the Approach S1W, a white version of our GPS wristwatch designed specifically for golf. The Approach S1W displays precise yardages to the front, back and middle of greens and comes preloaded with nearly 5,000 European courses and a total od 25,000 courses Worldwide! The Garmin Approach S1W GPS watch will be available in the UK at Golf Direct from the 1st November 2011 and can be pre booked now at their website www.golf-direct.co.uk.
Garmin’s Director of Outdoor Sales and Marketing, Bryan Yalowitz says about the S1W “as fashion continues to be in the forefront of our lives, we see golfers personalizing their attire and bringing new style to the course every day. The S1W not only adds a unique style, it also takes the guesswork out of your game without slowing the round.”
Constantly updating based on a golfer’s actual real-time location, Approach S1W can also measure individual shot distances, all while functioning as a high-quality, everyday watch. Since the Approach S1W comes preloaded with nearly 25,000 courses there’s no need for subscriptions or downloads – simply select “Start Round,” choose your course and you’re ready to tee off. Rugged and waterproof, the Approach S1W weighs only 1.8 ounces, has an ultra-thin back-lit display, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts up to eight hours in GPS mode and up to three weeks in watch mode. In addition to the wide range of preloaded courses, Approach S1W features an easy-to-set alarm and automatic time and time zone detection, making it the perfect companion for travelers.
Once the Garmin S1W GPS watch in in golf mode, it quickly acquires satellites and displays a list of nearby courses. Once a course is selected, three distances to each hole will always be provided – front, middle and back of the green, with those details being updated automatically and adjusted depending on the angle of approach. During the course of play, Approach S1W displays the hole number and par, and it automatically transitions from one hole to the next. Once golfers begin a round in golf mode, they can easily transition between time of day and distances to green, and they can access the menu to measure the distance of their last shot to improve their game or shore up bragging rights. Acting as a GPS enabled odometer, the S1W helps golfers track the total ground they’ve covered on foot during each round so that they can see the health benefits of leaving the cart in the clubhouse.
The Garmin Approach S1W White GPS watch will be available from the 1st November 2011 in the UK and and can be pre booked on the Golf Direct website www.golf-direct.co.uk.
