Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the Garmin Approach S4

  1. Agnes asked on
    does the watch come with attachments ie charger etc
    1. Val replied on
      Yes it comes with a charging plate which has a USB connector on the other end. Thus you can charge the watch via a computer (takes time) or via a plug in a socket. You need to attach it to the charging plate and plug it into a computer to download your data.
      The plate has 4 small brass pins which need to match holes in the watch. It is quite hard to fix together sometimes and one of my pins has broken off after only 4 months. I can still charge but not download data. I am trying to get a replacement under warranty otherwise will need to spend £20 to replace it. I would say take care of hen recharging.
  2. Rad asked on
    Does it need an annual subscription to it??? Cheers
    1. Jon replied on
      NO
  3. Peter asked on
    Does it auto advance from hole to hole
    1. Dave replied on
      It does. Sometimes not as accurately as you'd want - i.e. you do have to manually intervene sometimes on some courses.
    2. Colin replied on
      Dave is quite correct, it isnt perfect but it isnt a hardship to manually advance.
    3. Andrew replied on
      Yes it does when a certain distance from the last green is achieved so not great on temp greens or tees. But like above, easy to move on.

Garmin Connect Compatible

The Garmin Garmin Approach S4 GPS Watch is compatible with Garmin Connect to give you the ability to review rounds and see performance statistics before and after play, as well as the ability to share scores with your fellow golfers. Garmin Connect shows hole by hole details for your favourite courses so you can see where to improve your game and view your Dream Score on each course. Dream Score is what you would score if you hit your best score from each individual hole all in one round. The Scorecard feature allows you to view and share your scorecards and keep track who you’ve played with. You can also see the number of fairways hit, greens in regulation and number of putts for that round. Garmin Connect also keeps track of your stats and track of your progress over time. Track your longest shots, view your average score by par, overall fairways hit percentage, overall greens in regulation percentage and average putts. Garmin Connect will take your golf to the next level.

Track Your Stats

The enhanced stat tracking feature keeps track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round. Not only can you check your stats during the round, but you also can download and print them from your computer

Layup Distances

Course management is key – especially if you haven’t played a course before. Layup distances shows you the distances you need with yardages to doglegs and other hazards on the course.

Green View

In this mode, you are shown the true shape and layout of greens so even if you have an obstructed view, you’ll know where to aim. Plus, you can touch and drag the pin to the day's location

Multiple scoring options

The Garmin Approach S4 doubles as a digital scorecard with scoring options for Stroke Play and Stableford (not handicap scoring).
