If you're considering an upgrade from the Garmin Approach S62, it's worth comparing these two flagship models to determine if you want to make the $200 leap in price. Gabe from Let’s Play Thru initially thought, before he used the new S70, that he probably would not upgrade. But he quickly changed his mind, saying:
“Six out of five stars! The screen alone might push you over the top, it's that good. But the feature set and the new improvements—that does it for me."
We highly recommend you watch his video above to see the upgrades firsthand.
Aside from the eye-catching display, there are some other noteworthy design improvements. This highest end Garmin golf watch now comes in two sizes—42 mm and 47 mm—so that women or people with smaller wrists can also enjoy Garmin’s most robust golf features. The case is sleeker and both are lighter weight compared to other golf wearables.
But the golf feature upgrades are where the Approach S70 really shines. Improved Virtual Caddie shows your shot dispersion data and suggests a club based on a variety of factors, including your historical swing data, elevation, wind speed, wind direction, layout of the hole, and more.
