Find Yourself on the Green


It is a perfect day for golfing: warm weather, no breeze and clear skies. Your drives and strokes are solid, and you are feeling good. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the game, your friends decide to make a friendly wager, one which you (perhaps foolishly) agree to, since you have never played this course before. It is a close game, and the pressure is mounting, as you are up against one of the more difficult greens to maneuver. As well as you are performing, you simply cannot gauge the distance accurately. It is at this point that you begin to doubt whether or not the prior boasting of your abilities was really a good idea, along with second-guessing the bet that was encouraged by your overdose of confidence.

The Garmin Approach golf watches can do away with the need for guessing. With access to more than 27,000 courses worldwide, without subscriptions or fees, you can comfortably navigate any green without concern. With an intelligent location-based guidance system, you can view layup distances, green overviews and precise yardages to the front, back and middle of the next green. The high resolution and glove-friendly touch screen allows you to manually move the pin to a specific location, giving you the most accurate readings possible.

The series of Garmin Approach includes the S10 which weighs in at a light 1.23 ounces, with a monochrome LCD display that is one inch in diameter. The battery is a rechargeable lithium-ion and will last a full 8 hours in GPS mode. With a high-sensitivity receiver and a USB interface, this GPS device is extraordinarily easy to use. Its waterproof feature allows you to use this watch in any place at any time. The top of the line model is the S62 with an extensive list of very impressive features.

These devices can function not only as a helpful tool on the golf course but as a watch for your daily activities. The built-in odometer measures how far you walk, and a timer keeps track of how long it takes you to play 18 holes. The scorecard feature, supporting Stroke play and Stableford, can monitor your progress as well.

Never again will you have to estimate your next move on the green. With a quick look at your watch, you will know the exact dimensions of what lies ahead, and you can swing with confidence. Due to the many courses programmed within this watch, it can be used internationally, constantly challenging you at different courses across the world. For those that may travel to different locations but are restricted from purchasing this equipment, you can access the Garmin Approach through USUnlocked. Improve your game and your accuracy, and feel comfortable placing those friendly wagers.
