Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 32 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5áby Golf often and enjoy my Garmin S3 Easy to use, like the touch screen. The band takes a little getting use to and sometimes have a tough time taking it off. September 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Easy to use and very accurate! Right out if the box, this has been terrific. It charges quickly, lasts two rounds between charges, and (using companion's rangefinders) is always within a yard of accurate ranges. The only quibble is the lack of hazards, but they can be added manually. A great choice!! August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Product I had been looking GPS's for months and finally decided on the Garmin Approach, it works great is easy to use and is very accurate. I will never play without it. It makes your round easy, as it eliminates all the guessing on distances. Thanks Garmin, great product August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Outstanding Product Excellent product for the golf enthusiast. This gps has so many features it reduced my score by at least 5 strokes. Highly recommend for all golf players from beginner to expert. August 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Garmin S3 GPS Easy to use, very convenient on your wrist when you need the correct yardage for your next shot. Best GPS I have ever had. August 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby GREAT UNIT Bought the S3 last week and have used it twice. Both times I also took along my SktCaddie SGX and I found them to read the exact same distance on just about every hole. On a couple of holes they differed a couple of yards. Unit worked quickly and was easy to read. The measuring function on the S3 was much easier to use that the SkyCaddie. Quite easy to switch from one function to another. Not sure I would pay $249 for the unit as they are coming down in price. Available in Canada for $199 Canadian. July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Easy and convenient Easy and quick to learn functions. I like being able to move the pin placements based on their daily locations. So far it does everything I need it to. I really like that it comes with an AC adapter so I can charge it anywhere. It did use 60% of the battery life for a 4 1/2 hour round. July 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby ENHANCES THE GOLF EXPERIENCE I have used this product during 3 rounds of golf over the July 4th weekend. It really enhanced by experience. The device itself is easy to use and I found that the other members of my foursome wanted to wear the device and try it out. I think two of my firends will be purchasing this device. July 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Garmin S3 I purchased the Garmin S3 for my 75-year-old father. He is not a high tech guy and I was a little concerned it would be too complicated for him. Well, I'm happy to report that he loves it and has declared the S3 as one of the best gifts he has received. That from a guy who golfs 100 rounds of golf a year says it all. June 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Awesome Golf GPS I have tried the S2 Garmin, and the S3 Garmin. The S3 is by far the best as it is accurate and easier to use than the S4. Awesome Product. June 20, 2014
