Very accurate & simple to use during golf rounds.
Very unreliable bluetooth connection with Garmin software. Can be hard to get data to sync with phone/pc.
You cannot view your scorecard on the watch itself.

Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the Garmin S6

  1. Jon asked on
    Can you tap anywhere on the screen to find say the distance from where you are to a hazard, or a distance to a point you would like to play to?
    Also, how bulky is it on your wrist?...It looks quite thick!
    1. gareth replied on
      You can drag and drop the pin to anywhere on the green and measure the distance from wherever you are to any hazard.
      It's not bulky at all
  2. A Shopper asked on
    The PinPointer function must make this
    illegal under R@A rules.
    1. Andrew replied on
      I guess it would possibly be illegal in competition depending on stipulations of the golf club.
    2. Ian replied on
      Only things that illegal under R@A rules are wind speed, gradient etc. in a competition you can get a pin location sheet before you start, so you already know where the pin is. The S6 allows you to point in the right direction ie middle of the green if you haven't already marked it in the device, again legal.

      Take a look at measuring devices on the R&A website and they have a really good PDFS on what is and what isn't allowed on devices.
  3. A shopper asked on
    Are hazards actually shown on the pre loaded courses
    1. Ian replied on
      Yes, bunkers etc even the close up of the green had the bunker positions
    2. gareth replied on
      Yes, you can also drag the cursor to show you distances to front,middle,back etc of any hazard

The Approach S6 is the slim, lightweight, feature-packed high-resolution colour touchscreen GPS golf watch with first-of-its-kind swing metrics that was even awarded with the most famous reddot industrial design award.

The S6 features full-colour course views for more than 40,000 international courses and a dedicated CourseView button to get you to the second shot view quickly. Preview doglegs, bunkers and water hazards and pin positioning from wherever you are on the course, or clubhouse.

The S6 Watch delivers what a golfer wants - it automatically detects the golf course and handles hole to hole transition. On the course it shows at any time correct yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly colour touchscreen. It offers distances to doglegs and layups, customised yardage points (mark bunkers and hazards).
Zero in on the pin with Green View. Just tap the flag on the map to zoom in on the green — then you can drag the flag to position it where you see it, giving you more accurate yardage. The Garmin S6 has handicap scoring options for individual holes, player’s local handicap or index/slope method. Scoring options include Stroke play and Stableford, and you can save, review, share and print scorecards from your computer. Plus, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature. S6 even allows comprehensive stat tracking – keep track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round.

Garmin Approach S6 GPS Watch features:

  • Dedicated CourseView button displays exact distances
  • High resolution, sunlight readable and glove friendly colour touchscreen
  • With more than 40,000 international courses & no subscriptions or fees
  • Features Swing Training for a more consistent and balanced swing
SwingTempo and SwingStrength™ are new features on the S6 that help you when you’re practicing by providing swing timings and swing strength comparisons. SwingTempo is the timing ratio between the backswing and downswing and is useful for getting your swing in the right rhythm. If you’re having trouble hitting the right tempo then TempoTraining is available which allows you to select from ideal speeds and uses audible tones to help you achieve that speed. SwingStrength™ is a percentage of how hard you swung compared to your set full swing. This can be useful when practicing consistency in how hard you swing. It can also be used when trying to dial-in less than a full swing.
S6 features more battery life for longer play. Easily get in a weekend of golf with up to 10 hours in full GPS mode up to 12 weeks on watch mode, before the lithium-ion battery needs to be recharged. Even heavy rain and harsh conditions are no problem for this 5 ATM(50 meters) water rated watch. The S6 may be Garmins lightest, thinnest golf watch, but they've preloaded it with more than 40,000 international courses — without extra fees or paid subscriptions. In addition, you'll be able to download free course updates whenever they become available.
Garmin is pleased to announce that as of 1st January 2016, the full range of Garmin Approach distance measuring devices are permitted for use in golfing competition. This is subject to local rule and usage code of practice set out by the recent announcement of changes to the R&A rule book.
