Garmin has added an new entry-level timepiece to its wide range of golf wearables. The Approach S10 is a sleek, lightweight and comfortable golf watch that comes with a high-resolution, 1.3-inch, sunlight-readable display.
Similar to the recently launched Approach X10 in almost everything but looks, the watch comes pre-loaded with more than 41,000 courses around the world. Based on your location, the S10 will automatically figure out which course you are playing on.

The watch provides the basics allowing you to focus on your game. You’ll get yardages to the front, back and middle of the green as well as hazards such as bodies of water, along with doglegs. As you complete the holes, your new golfing buddy automatically transitions to the next hole.
For added convenience, the timepiece allows you to keep score. At the end of your round, you’ll get a summary of your round including the time it took you to finish each game, total distance played and more.
In terms of other specs, the lightweight device has rechargeable battery that lasts up to 12 hours in GPS mode. No need to fear weather elements or water-holes thanks to its 5 ATM (50 meters) water-resistance.
The S10 is compatible with Garmin’s golf app. This enables you to view online leader boards on any golf course, and compete with friends and other golfers.
This is a simple timepiece which does away with all the bells and whistles of its more sophisticated and more pricey predecessor, the S20. So for example, you don’t have the ability to display calls, texts and emails.
