Garmin Announces NEW Approach S60 Premium Golf GPS Watch for 2017!

Garmin Approach S60

Meet the Garmin Approach S60 Premium Golf GPS Watch; The next gen smartwatch that does golf and a whole lot more

You read it here first: This will be Garmin's best selling Golf GPS watch of all time.

For years, golfers have made due with golf specific watches with limited features, sub par battery life, and utilitarian styling.

The newly announced Garmin Approach S60 packs in a deep dive of golf specific features that will help you play better with world-class GPS tracking and train better with integrated round and swing analysis features.  

And since today's golfers do a lot more than just play golf - Garmin also included a full compliment of activity/outdoor tracking capabilities that can go up against any fitness wearable on the market.

As if that wasn't enough - they packed all of that into a drool worthy industrial design that includes Garmin's innovative QuickFit band switching platform - allowing you unlimited customization.

But wait, there's more... How about 10 hours of battery life in golf mode and up to 10 days of battery life in watch mode?

The S60 style and form factor is based on Garmin's recently launched and insanely popular Fenix 5 multisport GPS watch. This rugged and weatherproof device is as home on the course as it is in the gym and on the town.

Right out of the box you will notice the S60 is lightweight enough to not interfere with your golf swing, but still rugged enough to withstand any outdoor adventure.

The full compliment of golf features are backed by even more outdoor activity and fitness based features - making this the ultimate golf and outdoor companion.
