Rated 5 out of 5áby Garmin GPS Watch S3 Used it for the first time on 2/20/14 and it was great to be able to look down at your wrist and find your yardage instead of either guessing or trying to find the on course markers! My playing partner was using his "cell" phone for yardage and was a bit jealous of my Garmin at how quickly I was able to see the yardage plus measure your killer drives! March 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great devise A 5 out of 5 a great golfing aid. Very easy to use. December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Garmin Approach S3 Golf GPS Watch The garmin that I purchased was indeed a Christmas Gift for my husband. We both play golf but he is more competitive than I. Once he opened his gift, he was speechless with excitement. This high performance device particularly does everything and its so convenient to use while on the golf courses. User friendly. The instructions is amber. I love giving it as a gift and we both will be sharing the GARMIN for future plays on the golf courses of different terrains and bounds. December 29, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5áby Great product Yardage is accurate. Easy to recharge. Battery life could be longer. Overall a good purchase. July 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great product!!! This item is amazing! I have another hand held golf GPS and had a hard time using it,this thing is so simple to use,it even has the small 9 hole course in my neighborhood that I play a lot,on my other GPS, it was not even avaliable. I cant believe they have all these features,in a wrist watch size!! May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Technically Innovative I've used various laser range finders and other GPS devices on courses. It's about time that someone (Garmin) understands the end user.. i.e., the golfer. I received the S1 as a special retirement gift. It was a terrific gift, but after seeing the additional features in the S3, I immediately upgraded to the S3. The S3 is extremely accurate, easy to use and read. But the most important feature is it's packaging as a convenient wristwatch that's always immediately available to view and won't get lost or forgotten on the golf course, in the cart or easily stolen. The FREE course upgrades and no subscription fees provides icing on the cake. I can see my handicap already dropping in my retirement! January 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Stroke saver. i consistently shoot in the mid 90s, i dont know if it is the watch or not, but the first time played with it, i shot 89, and broke 90 for the first time. very easy to easy to use, gives the basics, front middle and back, and also keep scores. very happy with my purchase, and highly recomend it to any golfer. it also speeds up play.
