Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green. Use the touchscreen to manually move the pin to the day’s location. This is especially helpful on par-3’s where you’ll be able to dial in the distance you need, and fire away with confidence.

Approach S3 gives you distances to the front, back and center of the green, and you can see distances to doglegs. S3 also allows players to input and save customizable yardage points – like water hazards or bunkers – from anywhere on the course.
Approach S3 debuts digital scorecard options for individual players. Scoring options include Stroke play and Stableford, and you can save, review and print scorecards from your home computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature.
The S3 is available in 2 sharp color combinations – white with red trim and black with gray trim.
The S3 functions as an everyday watch, and it has a odometer so you can see how far you walk each day, or every round you play. A round timer also is included so you can keep track of how long it took you to play 18.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the touch screen too sensitive?
It is not. I find it indispensable, especially on cart path only days. Bottom line, I don't think that you'll be seeing some unnecessary inputs while playing a round of golf. Garmin did pretty well on this watch.
What else does it include except the watch?
110 V Charger with a mini USB connection. Plug it into the wall or computer. Everything you need except a tee time.
Does it convert to metric measurement
