Garmin has just announced a new trio of wearable exclusively aimed at golfers. The three new wearables join Garmin’s Approach lineup of GPS devices that are supposed to help golfers improve their game, or at least make it more fun.
The Approach S42 smartwatch, Approach S12 watch, and Approach G12 GPS rangefinder feature more than 42,000 preloaded courses. They promise to offer solid battery life and support connectivity with Garmin’s club tracking sensor and the company’s golf app. The latter allows users to upload scorecards, review performance stats, and input other golf-related information.
The only smartwatch revealed today, the Approach S42 is now available for purchase for $300. It features a 1.2-inch color touchscreen display and offers up to 15 hours of battery life in GPS mode, and up to 10 days in smartwatch mode. It can track all sorts of things like steps, sleep, calories, vibration alerts, move bar, and built-in sport profiles.
