Approach S3, the touchscreen GPS golf watch – instant, simple, precise

Rugged and waterproof, the Approach S3 golf watch is another benchmark for GPS innovation within the golf market. Packed with 27,000+ worldwide courses without subscriptions or fees, S3 displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens. The S3 also introduces a high-resolution, glove-friendly touchscreen display, Green View with manual pin positioning, distances to doglegs and layups, customizable yardage points and printable digital scorecards for Stroke play and Stableford.

Touch & Move the Pin

Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green. Use the touchscreen to manually move the pin to the day’s location. This is especially helpful on par-3’s where you’ll be able to dial in the distance you need, and fire away with confidence.

Play Preloaded Courses for Free

No larger than a typical sports watch, the comfortable S3 is filled with 27,000+ preloaded courses from around the globe – all without extra fees or subscriptions. Plus, whenever we release more courses, you can download them for free.

Customize the Distances You Need

Approach S3 gives you distances to the front, back and center of the green, and you can see distances to doglegs. S3 also allows players to input and save customizable yardage points – like water hazards or bunkers – from anywhere on the course.

Keep Score and See How Far You Hit It

Approach S3 debuts digital scorecard options for individual players. Scoring options include Stroke play and Stableford, and you can save, review and print scorecards from your home computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature.

Choose Your Style

The S3 is available in 2 sharp color combinations – white with red trim and black with gray trim.

Wear it Everyday

The S3 functions as an everyday watch, and it has a odometer so you can see how far you walk each day, or every round you play. A round timer also is included so you can keep track of how long it took you to play 18.

Layup Distances
Course management is key – especially if you haven’t played a course before. Layup distances shows you the distances you need with yardages to doglegs and other hazards on the course.
Precise Yardages
Once glance at your wrist from any point on the course is all it takes to get yardages to the front, back and middle of greens with clear, easy-to-read numbering.
Measure Shot Distances
When you drop the boom stick on a drive, seeing how far you hit it is a breeze. Approach S3 calculates exact yardages for shots played anywhere on the course.
