Rated 5 out of 5 by from S2 duration Purchased the S2 in June 2013. Wore the S2 with excellent functioning for approximately 350 golfing outings from 6/13 till 9/16, when the face went blank.Excellent product. Too bad that battery cannot be replaced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing but problems First one I received, died less than 2 mos. after I bought it. It was replaced at no charge but took 10 days to receive. The second unit has the same problems the first one had. It takes up to 30 minutes to lock on a satellite, regardless of where you are playing and regardless of the weather. I now see why Garmin discontinued this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Battery life/charging. Charged the battery for 4 hours. Before my round was over , "low battery" appeared.This happens all the time. Not sure how long I need to charge this thing. Don't want to overdue it. Besides that, the GPS works fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from S2 still a solid design Good basic golf GLS product. Price is right, much cheaper than 2010 version I previously owned. Charger is better design, as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT FOR ME I'm sorry to say my purchase of the S2 was a mistake. Two different courses and the reading I received was, "No courses near". Very frustrating because it worked the first time I used it. However, I had to take it back and received a credit because my local Dick's Sporting Goods personnel said they discontinued the product. Going over to mgGolf for a sky caddie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for golfers Simple to use - outstanding results. Most accurate GPS product I have used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but could use a better battery I have used my S2 watch for three rounds of golf now and I have found that the yardages are spot on. I have been able to be more confident in my club selection and have been able to attack the green more which shaves strokes off my score.I also enjoy the look of it as I wear it as a normal watch during work. The only downfall is that I have to recharge it after each round so it has enough juice to make it through the next 18 holes.Definitely get your moneys worth out of it though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful GPS Watch and More This is a wonderful GPS watch and more. I love being able to keep score, distance, among other things while playing golf. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient is the best way to describe it. Played several rounds so far on three different courses and it is nice to stand over your ball and see the yardage to the front, back and middle of the green. Depending on flag location I can adjust accordingly. I definitely recommend this product...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple easy to use does with little confusion. good reading on course lengths and on second shots

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Accurate I have used this watch on about 5 rounds and found the yardage to be very accurate. I checked it with my brother's hand held rangefinder and it was right on the money. My older brother liked mine so much that he went out and purchased one the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Bought S2 while on sale ($50 off) to replace my 2 year old Bushnell Neo watch. The S2 in my opinion is better then the Neo and less expensive. It's also more accurate, has more features and easier to use.I like the S2 capability to sync up with the Garmin Express portal. I already use the Garmin Vivofit band so syncing up was a breeze and now I can follow my progress (or lack of it) on my PC. Battery life (at least 2 rounds per charge) is as advertised and better than the Neo. Doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the more expensive models but that's just fine with me. I'd rather spend time enjoying my round than fiddling with buttons and menus. My game isn't that good that I need all the extra info. I just want distance, scoring and shot measurement--and the S2 does that easily & simply in spades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garmin S2 Took it out to a local course this afternoon and it work d very well. Had no issue seeing the distances in the bright sunlight. Played 18 holes and there was still plenty of battery left. Can't wait to see if it works when I play 36 holes in one day later in the season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Bought this product in spite of some negative reviews. Have played five rounds with it at five different courses and it has functioned perfectly. Loads fast and is intuitive to use. Accuracy was great. The score-keeping function is a nice feature. Synced to Garmin Connect I have a complete record of all my rounds and can watch improvement or any lack there of. I don't want to play around without it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor battery I have used the S2 for 6 months and very disappointed with the battery. It is slow charging and will only last for one round. Everything else with it as advertised
Date published: 2016-02-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage The battery and charging system is terrible. Will not charge. Tried everything Garmin customer service suggested. I also know of two others who experience similar difficulties. Nothing but frustration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Easy to use. Has improved my overall game. Was recommended by one of my golf partners who was very pleased with his Garmin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we were looking for !!! My husband loves his watch. IT works just as described and easy to set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garmin S2 Very good. Would be better if you could set watch to score once and not have to do it each time out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product ! This GPS watch is fantastic! Very easy to set up and use. The first time I used it was fun. It found my course, the 1st hole, and I opted to keep score via the scorecard mode. The scorecard mode is great, when you are finishing on the green it automatically goes into scorecard mode. It defaults your score as par and you enter your score with the up and down buttons and then press ok, takes 2 seconds. It automatically advances to the next hole until the end of your round. When you sync the watch to your computer thru Garmin Connect you can upload your scorecard to view anytime. It was amazing to me how far off my yardage guesses have always been. Even at the 150 yard marker, it's only 150 yards dead center of the fairway if you are on the very edge of the fairway you might actually be at 165, this solves those problems and lets you know the exact yardage. This is really worth the investment and even better since I got it on sale. It helped me improve my scores.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the product needs to upgrade the battery I like the watch. The distance is very accurate in my opinion. Very easy to find golf course. The only problem is that I cannot play two rounds of golf before recharging. I cannot believe that the charge only holds for a little more than one round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product looks like exactly what I wanted. Have not used it yet as it is a Christmas gift. Delivery was quick.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ok features. Wasn't what I had expected. I needed more help in distances to hazards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great golf watch has everything I needed and it's so light you don't even know your wearing it. Only used it for two rounds but it's right on
Date published: 2015-08-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I like my S2 Only used it one time. I was happy with the information provided. I'll have to play with it for awhile to figure it out completely.
Date published: 2015-08-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The S2 Better Be Better Than The S1 I purchased the Garmin S2 about 1 month ago and I like it. I replaced my S1, which I had for about 1 year, when a little rain and sweat filled it with moisture. The waterproofing on the S2 better hold up much better than on the S1. So far, I can recommend the S2.
Date published: 2015-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy course location and download Once you are at the course your going to play, it identifies and downloads the course quite quickly. The distances seem to be quite accurate. Locating distances to hazards would be a real plus.
