Full Color Touchscreen Golf GPS Watch with CourseView

  • Touchscreen, high-resolution, glove-friendly
  • Full-color CourseView maps with green view and manual pin positioning
  • Smart Notifications allow you to receive emails, texts and other alerts from your iPhone® or iPad®
  • Precise distances for more than 38,000 international courses; no subscriptions or fees
  • Tournament legal under PGA rules (may vary based on tournament)

The slim, lightweight Approach S5 GPS touchscreen golf watch features color CourseView maps and green view with manual pin positioning plus precise distances to the front, back and middle of the green so you can preview and adjust positioning from wherever you are on more than 38,000 international courses. It’s even PGA tournament legal.

CourseView Full Color Maps

S5 features full-color course views for more than 38,000 international courses you are playing, and a dedicated CourseView button to get you to the 2nd shot view quickly. Get hole-by-hole details before you play them. Preview doglegs, traps and water hazards, green shapes, and pin positioning from wherever you are on the course or clubhouse.

Touch and Move the Pin

Green view shows you the true shape and layout of the green even if you are behind it. Use the color touchscreen to manually drag-and-drop the pin to the day’s location. As you move the pin, your distance-to-the-pin numbers will change respectively. This is especially helpful on par 3’s where you’ll be able to dial in the distance you need to fire away with confidence.

Instant, Simple and Precise

Rugged and water rated to 50 meters, the Approach S5 displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly color touchscreen. And, it lets you manually position pins, get distances to doglegs and layups, customize yardage points (mark traps and hazards) and print digital scorecards for Stroke play and Stableford.

Smart Notifications

Never miss another text, email or alert just because your smartphone is deep in your bag. Smart Notifications let you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch. S5 receives the wireless signal from a compatible iPhone or Android™ smartphone¹ and let’s you know you have a message, displaying the text on its own screen whenever you’re ready to read it.

Longer Life Battery

S5 features more battery life for longer play or more rounds. Easily get in a weekend of GPS golf with up to 10 hours in full GPS and up to 14 weeks, depending on mode, before the lithium-ion battery needs to be recharged.

Preloaded Courses and Free Updates

The S5 may be one of our lightest, thinnest golf watches, but we've preloaded it with more than 38,000 international courses — without extra fees or paid subscriptions. In addition, you'll be able to download free course updates whenever they become available.

Customize Distances

S5 gives you distances to the front, back and center of the green, as well as distances to doglegs. It also allows you to input and save customizable yardage points — such as water hazards or bunkers — from anywhere on the course.

Keep Handicaps, Scores and Measure Shots

S5 has handicap scoring options for individual holes, player’s local handicap or index/slope method. Scoring options include Stroke play and Stableford, and you can save, review, share and print scorecards from your computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature.

Garmin Connect™ Golf

Garmin Connect is the online golf community that lets you play, then share and compare. Download your round and contrast it to your last round, track improvements to your handicap for every course you play. Garmin Connect Golf can even assemble your ideal round combining your best score for each hole to get your ideal 18 for that course.

An Everyday Watch With Style

By the way, the S5 even tells you the time. S5 features an odometer to see how far you walk. A round timer also is included to keep track of how long it takes you to play 18 holes.
