PLAY WITH CONFIDENCE

We’ve got your game with Approach S42, a GPS golf smartwatch that’s designed for lowering your score on the course and upping your style off the course.

Looking into the sun might affect your shot, but not your ability to read your watch.

Show up to any of the 42,000+ preloaded courses and play like you’ve been there before.

Go the distance when you know the distance. Green View lets you manually position the pin.

Take your shot, and track where it landed with AutoShot detection.

More than just a golf watch. Wear it 24/7 and get smart notifications, track steps and more.

If you want to play 15 straight hours of golf, this watch has the battery life to do it.

Wear it on the course. And off.

COLOR TOUCHSCREEN

Large 1.2” easy-to-read color touchscreen display with metal bezel is stylish and lightweight.

QUICK RELEASE BANDS

If you like to change watch bands as often as you change your course, no problem. Choose from interchangeable quick release bands.

GOES BEYOND THE COURSE

Whether you just got done with a game and find yourself in the clubhouse or you want to hit the town, Approach S42 is great for everyday wear.

Know the course on the back of your wrist.

42,000+ PRELOADED COURSES

Your watch comes preloaded with more than 42,000 CourseView maps of golf courses around the world. Download updates for the course you play most often.
