Rated 1 out of 5 by Jean Poor charging clip
I've never seen a piece of electronic with such a poor charging mechanism. Pins are difficult to align and you have to be ultra careful when you put it down on your desk because it could move out of alignment. What's more, the clip broke within two years after very light use of the device since my wife plays less than thirty games a year.

All courses in my area are in the data base. Directions very easy to understand even for us seniors. Speeded up my play considerably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimmy boy GREAT WATCH!!
This is the smartest thing I have purchased yet as far as golf equipment and I have a lot. I have a Bushnell range finder, which is good, but this is great, wear lik e a watch(it is) and it tells you the range, distance of you r shot whether walking or in the cart.BUY IT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larry123 Best purchase I've made.
Wanted a GPS for distance to the green. Wanted something easy to use and not have to pull out of my pocket. The Garmin S1 is perfect and very accurate. A glance at your wrist and you are ready for club selection. Only draw back is that it takes some work to get it charged, but after a few times you get used to it. You won't be sorry you bought it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Danny415 Garmin Approach S1 GPS Watch
This GPS watch is very easy to use, and for the most part is fairly accurate.
I found a golf course that had some inaccurate yardages that I play frequently. I have contacted Garmin, and they said that this would be addressed by future updates

The system works great. I have dropped from an 8 to a 6 Hcp immediatly. The yardages are allways approximate as I have read some reviews complaining of exact figures, these players are out of touch with reality. Take these figures from the watch and add or subtract 3/4 yards and you will find a great improvement to your scores. " Remenber you still have to make the putt".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr Golf's Wife Husband SWEARS improved his game!
I purchased for our Anniversary and apparently I did very good. Hubby absolutely LOVES it and swears his game has greatly improved! :) I also get added points because his golf buddies think I'm the best. It's simple, easy to read and understand. Hubby says he wishes battery life a tad longer as he'd like to wear it even when not golfing to show off. Ha.

The first time I tried to use it in Potsdam, NY, it found the course but froze on finding the rest of the data. Another member of the foursome had the same unit and it worked fine. I have used mine in the Albany, NY area and it worked fine. It is very helpful for club selection.

Help to make the game a little easier. Also knowing the distance to the hole help in the club selection.
