Short on time? Here are 3 things you need to know about the Garmin Approach S42 Golf GPS Smartwatch:
- Approach S42 = Heavy on Features, Mid-Level Price - The Approach S42 sits comfortably at the middle price point of Garmin's Approach watches. It has a beautiful color touchscreen, slim form factor and most of the top golf features (minus Virtual Caddie which is only on S62).
- Want more features? Or less $$? There's also the Garmin Approach S62 ($499.99) or Garmin Approach S12
- Big, Color Touchscreen You Can Wear Off-Course - The screen is big and the screen is easy-to-read, even in bright conditions. Plus the watch (which comes in 3 stylish colors) is plenty good-looking to wear on the course and at dinner afterward.
- Best Bang for Your Buck - We love the S42 and think it's a wonderful middle ground between powerful golf features, a stylish form factor and affordability.
