April 26, 2018 7:00 AM EDT

April 26, 2018 — Garmin today announced the Approach S10, a simple and intuitive golf watch that takes out the guesswork by showing precise distances to the front, back and middle of the green for over 41,000 worldwide courses.

The Approach S10 is a simple and easy to use, entry-level golf watch with pre-loaded course maps for over 41,000 courses worldwide. It has a 1.3-inch high-resolution sunlight readable screen to provide a clear and crisp display even in direct sunlight. Based on GPS location, the Approach S10 will automatically select the course, and provide distances to the front, back and middle of the green for each hole. It can also display distances to hazards, doglegs and layups. While golfing, the watch will automatically transition to the next hole, and players can enter in their score on the watch. After every game, the Approach S10 will show the total distance traveled, the total time played and the score for that round, ready to be uploaded to the weekly leaderboard on the Garmin Golf App.

The lightweight, comfortable watch is swim and shower friendly with a water rating of 5ATM1 and has a battery life of up to 12 hours between charges in GPS mode. Available in Q2, the Approach S10 will have a suggested retail price of $149.99. To learn more about the Approach S10 and the full line of Garmin golf products, visit garmin.com/golf.
