In the latest Approach golf GPS watch lineup, Garmin has designed the gorgeous Approach S42. We think it's the perfect golf watch for women, and once you get the skinny on this already popular smartwatch, we think you'll agree.
First, it has a sleek style, a slim form-factor for smaller wrists, and is lightweight but with a display size that is still substantial enough for a GPS watch, which needs to show you distances to the front, middle, and back of the green.
The display is a 1.2" sunlight-readable color touchscreen. This Garmin golf GPS watch only weighs 1.5 ounces compared to the 2.2 ounces of the 1.3" Approach S62 model.
Next, the Garmin Approach S42 does not skimp on golfing features! It comes loaded with:
- 42,000 golf courses worldwide
- Yardage to the front, middle, and back of the green
- Digital scorecard
- Custom targets
- Stat tracking
- AutoShot™ automatic shot tracking
- Auto courseview updates
- Green View with manual pin position
- Hazards and course targets
- Truswing™ compatibility
- Round timer/odometer
- Compatibility with automatic club tracking
- Tournament legal
What else? Well, it wouldn't be a Garmin without some health-monitoring and fitness tracking. You can monitor your sleep, hydration, and women's health—menstrual cycle tracking and pregnancy. Also, keep track of your steps and set goals to keep you moving. Get some running and cycling profiles as well.
Finally, this Garmin golf watch is going to complement your wrist on and off the course. Wherever you are, you'll get smart notifications, weather, and calendar alerts. Battery life in smartwatch mode lasts up to 10 days, 15 hours with GPS. It comes in 3 color palettes: the rose gold bezel and light sand band is the most popular, followed by the silver bezel with white band, and the gunmetal with black band.
