Newest flagship golf smartwatches available in two different sizes and packed with on-the-course tools and fitness features to help build a better all-around game
Garmin, a global leader in GPS technologies for aviation, automotive, navigation and outdoor activities, recently announced the launch of the Approach S70 series, the newest addition to their lineup of cutting-edge Garmin Golf Ecosystem. Designed for golfers of all ages and skill levels, the Approach S70 is available in two different sizes and packed with on-the-course tools and fitness features to help build a better all-around game.
Super-bright and easy to read, even in the sunlight, both smartwatches feature stunning AMOLED touchscreen displays so it’s easier than ever to play one of the over 43,000 preloaded golf courses from around the world.
From the driving range to the final putt, the Approach S70 series covers golfers of all skill levels. The improved virtual caddie tool shows shot dispersion data and suggests a club based on a variety of factors, including historical swing data, elevation, wind speed, wind direction and more1. Both watches also include an enhanced PlaysLike Distance feature with an all-new, built-in barometer to give players a more accurate reading of how each shot is playing.
Golfers will be able to play more rounds without needing to charge thanks to the Approach S70 series’ extended battery life. The Approach S70 can hold a charge for up to 16 days in smartwatch mode and up to 20 hours when using GPS.
“The Approach S70 series is a game-changer for golfers who seek comprehensive tools to elevate their performance on the course, while also embracing a well-rounded lifestyle. With its wide range of health monitoring, activity tracking, and connected features, this series offers golfers the best of both worlds. Moreover, with the availability of two sizes, golfers can now choose the perfect watch that suits their style and needs without compromising on functionality,” said Mr. Scoppen Lin, Assistant General Manager, Garmin Asia.
