What shoppers are saying
With shoppers calling this watch excellent value for money and an easy device to use, it’s no wonder that it’s earned a 4.6-star rating from more than 3,700 customer reviews.
“This is a newer version of a Garmin approach I have used for a few years. This updated version has more functions than the older version and it is both lighter and slimmer so it is more comfortable to wear,” one reviewer shared. “Its use is pretty straight forward and is good value for the money.”
“This is the best investment I have made in my golf game in years. The easiest device to use and finds the course automatically. The distances are very precise,” added another. “Best golf accessory ever!”
In spite of the many high reviews, some shoppers have noted that the strap on this watch is one area that could be improved.
“Works as advertised. Really liked that it showed distances to hazards and dog legs. Numbers are easy to read,” reads one review. “My only concern would be the durability of the strap. The strap on my previous Garmin deteriorated and broke after a few years of use.”
If you’re looking for an affordable watch to help you up your golf game, the Garmin Approach S10 Lightweight GPS Golf Watch is definitely one to consider. With a simple and effective interface that works well even on small golf courses, you’ll never have to worry about tracking your strokes again.
This sale won’t last forever though, so be sure to pick one up while it lasts.
