Garmin releases Approach S5 golf watch

Garmin S5 Golf Watch

Garmin has announced the upcoming release of its latest lightweight golf watch, the Approach S5. Slim and comfortable to wear, the S5 is a feature-packed GPS watch with high-resolution colour screen with Touch Targeting on a full course display and Handicap Scoring.

Get Precise Yardages

The Garmin Approach S5 GPS golf watch gives golfer what they want – it automatically detects the golf course a player is on and handles hole to hole transition. While on the golf course it is able to show at any time correct yardages to the front, back and middle of the greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly colour touchscreen. The S5 is also able to measure distances to doglegs and layups, as well as customised yardage points (mark bunkers and hazards).

Crisp, clear, easy to read numbering means everyone can benefit from having an S5 on their wrist.


Garmin S5 Approach watch gives golfers full-colour hole-by-hole details for over 38,000 international courses. Able to preview doglegs, hazards and green shapes from wherever you are on the course, or even from the clubhouse, players can stay right on top of their game.


Like other Garmin GPS watches, GreenView makes another appearance with the new S5 model. With GreenView, players get a close-up view of the green where you can drag the flag to position, allowing for greater accuracy on yardages.

Smart Notifications

Receive Smart Notifications

Never miss another email or text while on the greens with Smart Notifications. The S5 will give out text alerts, emails and more straight to your golf watch. The Garmin S5 Approach displays whatever your compatible smartphone can display wirelessly via a Bluebooth® device.
