Garmin Introduces The Approach S6 Golf Watch


Garmin today announced the Approach S6 touchscreen watch equipped with a GPS, swing metrics and full-color courseview maps.

The Approach S6 boasts swing metrics and training tools right on a golfer's wrist. SwingTempo, TempoTrainer and SwingStrength can be used to improve golfers' swing consistency and synchronization. The S6 is the first golf watch to offer full CourseView maps with GreenView, Touch Targeting, and PinPointer on a high-res color touchscreen. Like other Garmin golf devices, the Approach S6 comes preloaded with more than 30,000 international courses with no additional subscriptions or fees.



SwingTempo measures the relationship between a golfer's backswing and downswing, and shows it as a ratio. In studies of successful golf swings, an ideal ratio of 3:1 has been established, even with individual variations of speed. TempoTrainer uses the 3:1 ratio and gives golfers audible tones to synchronize their swing mechanics and fine-tune their tempo.

SwingStrength provides golfers with immediate feedback on their power percentage, to help golfers calculate and remember how hard they hit each club.

The Approach S6 also has a Handicap Scoring feature, which provides handicap scoring options for individual holes, golfer?s local handicap, or index/slope methods.

CourseView allows golfers to preview hole details like doglegs, traps, water hazards, and green shapes while they're on the course or even in the clubhouse. In addition to CourseView, the Approach S6 also has GreenView, which shows golfers the layout of the green, as well as nearby bunkers and water hazards, so golfers can use the touchscreen to drag and drop the pin to the day's location, giving them the most accurate yardages. The Approach S6 even has PinPointer, which offers blind shot assistance by providing an arrow pointing directly to the green. With this feature, golfers know exactly where to line up their shot, no matter if they are in the woods or deep in a trap.

The Approach S6 boasts 10 hours of battery life in full GPS mode or 14 weeks in watch mode. It is also equipped with Smart Notification technology. When paired with an iPhone 4S or later, golfers can receive text, email and missed call alerts right on the watch. Android compatibility expected in summer 2014.

The Approach S6 also doubles as an electronic scorecard to save, review, and share scorecards and stats. Sync the Approach S6 to Garmin Connect or Garmin Connect Mobile, and golfers will be able to upload, analyze and share their scorecards, as well as other data like fairways hit, greens in regulation, shot distance and number of putts. They can even analyze course data, and see hole-by-hole details to understand their own trends and tendencies to improve their game.

Water resistant to 50 meters, the Approach S6 is durable enough to withstand a rainstorm. It will be available in Q3 2014, and will have a suggested retail price of $399.99.
