    The Garmin Approach S20 GPS retails for $199,99 (MSRP) and it's designed as a stylish timepiece for your wrist while bringing all the features you'll ever need when on the golf course. The Garmin Approach S20 GPS combines a high resolution screen and activity tracking with an elegant wristwatch band, being a beautiful piece of gear which works miracles when it comes to confidence boosting. Long story short, after trying this GPS gizmo, I must tell you that the S20 GPS is among the best mid range golf golf watches I've ever tried this year. Its main characteristics are the 40,000 preloaded international golf courses, the Bluetooth connectivity, the high-resolution display with excellent sunlight legibility and the fact that you can pair the Garmin Approach S20 GPS with the latest TruSwing golf sensor. Needless to say, this device is absolutely laser-accurate when it comes to measuring distances on the turf, but more on that later. With their latest wearable, Garmin delivers more stats and more data than ever before in a very interesting form factor, including automatic golf course updates, which are now standard. The Garmin Approach S20 GPS can be worn as an everyday watch, due to its beautiful styling, but when needed, it will transform at a push of a button into a high tech GPS tracker.

    Together with enhancing your golfing experience, the Garmin Approach S20 GPS includes health and fitness features,like your daily step count and the distances walked on the turf, a calorie counter and so on and so forth. Now, talking about golf, the Garmin Approach S20 GPS has some of the best features available in the golf GPS watch industry. Using this baby, you'll be able to see/calculate with pin point accuracy the distances to the back/front/middle of the green, together with hazards. Also, you can analyze the distance and the location of each and every shot after a finished round, courtesy of the Garmin Connect dedicated app, that works with your smart-phone. The data is recorded and analyzed via the brand new AutoShot round analyzer. When the Garmin Approach S20 GPS is paired with your smart-phone, you'll also receive notifications for messages, calls, texts and various alerts via Bluetooth. Among the most important features, I must tell you about the CourseView auto-updater, which downloads important updates automatically of the golf courses you play frequently, the AutoShot (the post-round distance analyzer), the Green View feature, the wireless connectivity, the digital scorecard, activity tracking and the smart notifications. Bottom line, with a battery life of up to eight weeks in tracking mode and fifteen hours in GPS mode, the Garmin Approach S20 GPS is very easy to recommend to all fashion conscious golfers looking for an edge on the turf.
