Garmin Approach S62

The latest GPS watch from Garmin is a pretty incredible piece of kit, and it’s a great deal more than simply a distance measuring device.

With a 1.3” screen, the S62 is 17% larger than the older S60, meaning the colour, touchscreen display is easier to see and to read information on. It’s also sunlight visible so isn’t affected by glare.

Editor's Choice 2020

The S62 delivers standard yardages on over 41,000 pre-loaded courses to front, middle and back of greens and to each hazard on the map. On top of that, the S62 has features such as Garmin’s PlaysLike Distance, giving you distances to the target, adjusted for uphill or downhill shots, which can be easily turned off for tournament play. The watch can also tell you wind speed and its direction.

Virtual Caddie

On top of those individual features is the excellent, virtual caddie option which factors in wind speed and direction and suggests a club based on the distance you typically swing with that particular club. Again – easy to turn off when you’re playing in a competition.

Green View allows you to zoom in on the green to get precise yardages according to wherever the pin is on the day, while Pinpointer helps you on blind shots by displaying the exact direction of the pin.

Stay connected

The S62 is fully connective and can keep track of your scoring and performance with each club, it stores data that can be analysed using the Garmin Golf App to give insight into your game. It receives smart notifications and can be used for contactless payments.

On top of all the technology, the Garmin Approach S62 also looks great on your wrist. It’s a stylish watch with ceramic bezel and interchangeable silicon strap. When you have it simply in Smart Watch mode, the battery will last for up to 14 days.
