What customers say about "Key Specs"
Garmin Approach S20 GPS Golf Watch with Step Tracking, Preloaded Courses, Midnight Teal
  • The GPS moves hole to hole, it tracks everything and even loads your steps, time and odometer automatically after the round
  • Great golf GPS. Distances very accurate.
  • I replaced an S2 that I had been using for a couple of years, and this GPS is better in every way.
  • GPS for golf purposes is accurate and intuitive. I really like the sunrise and sunset feature.
  • The GPS function and syncing is fantastic. It is spot on when compared to a laser or the PGA markers.

What customers say about "Display"
Garmin Approach S20 GPS Golf Watch with Step Tracking, Preloaded Courses, Midnight Teal
  • It's a basic display but easy to read. But that's all I was looking for, if you want a color screen you will pay big bucks. Recommended!
  • Fits nice, long lasting battery, easy to read display.
  • Display is easy to read and seems to be fairly accurate.
  • This is my first golf gps watch and I love it. It is fast, accurate, and the display is easy to read. This watch has an attractive, modern look.
  • The display numbers are nice and large and easy to read and the battery is by far the best of the three golf GPS watches I have owned.
Garmin Approach S6 Golf Watch
  • Really love it but have not used all the capability yet. Easy to read and use.
  • I have not had any problem reading the display during the round even wearing sun glasses. You can change the display from white font on black background to black font on white background.
  • The display is easy to see and the features are super. It's a good looking watch!
  • The information provided is very accurate. It is easy to read.
  • The color of the watch definitely wasn't as vivid as I was hoping for but it was still nice.
  • Touch screen is "touchy", sometimes you have have to touch 3 times.

What customers say about "Features"
Garmin Approach S20 GPS Golf Watch with Step Tracking, Preloaded Courses, Midnight Teal
  • With a full charge, battery will last for more than two rounds. In just watch mode, it lasts a least a week.
  • The battery life is very good, in non-GPS mode it lasts over a week, using the GPS it easily copes with two rounds and would probably go three.
  • Step counter seems accurate and the Garmin Connect app that goes with the watch is actually pretty cool.
  • Alerts you to messages on smartphone, when connected via Bluetooth
  • Works well on the golf courses. I like the sunrise and sunset information
Garmin Approach S6 Golf Watch
  • Overall, it is a great GPS golf watch, love the app to review my game and I would recommend it highly.
  • Played two rounds so far with the last round having the Bluetooth on and it still had over half the battery charge left when the round was over.
  • I owned the S3 and was very pleased. The additions to the S6 are great: swing tempo and trainer, help on blind shots and entire hole view
  • The scorecard is very good and the integration with Garmin Connect is excellent.
  • Will track your swing and everything. I am not a golfer so can write regarding technicalities but it appears to be everything advertised.
  • Spec on battery is 10 hours of use, only got approx 7 hours.
