Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dim and short battery life I was pretty stoked to buy this. Screen is very dim. I cannot see the course screen and pin place screens they boast. No adjustment. Battery does not last even 3.5 hours per charge. I have tried the unit 6 rounds. Giving it one more try then may return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mine did not work On the first glance Approach S6 has a number of features that you would think are helpful. However, in realty all u need is the distance to the green that is reliable. The color screen was not a big deal and did not help with the visualization or better game. The flag position is hard to manipulate and is time consuming and takes away from the focusing on the game and slows you down.I was looking forward to use my new S6 in a golf trip to Florida. However, the S6 malfunctioned from the get go and was confused about which hole was being played. When it found the hole, it started oscillating screens between hole yardage and measuring your shot yardage features.I tried to reset the software to factory setting a couple of times but that did not help. I would say that my S6 was a lemon at best. I was very upset for not being able to use my new toy on my golf trip. Luckily I was able to return the S6 before 30 days.You also need a computer to charge the watch. The Mannual does not support how to charge if u want to get away from your laptop in a golf trip which I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate and easy to use. Had no trouble using it for the 1st time. Love the speed at which the watch gets a full charge. Found the display easy to read and the accuracy of the device.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful battery Great gps watch except you cannot finish a round. Played 16 holes and it died the first day. The next time played 15 holes. Both times were under 4 hours with no smart notifications turned on. I want to like it as it's great when the battery is working but when you can't finish a round and you should get 10 hours of gps time, it will be returned. This is my second one as the first on wouldn't sync to phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working very well The Garmin S6 has very accurate yardages and is a quick, easy glance at your wrist to help decide which club to select. It took about 15 minutes to learn and become comfortable with the operation of the features. The only negative is the short battery life on the course. After 18 holes, the battery indicator is below the half way mark, but in watch mode the battery level will probably last several weeks.The fairway view and pin placement features are interesting but of questionable value to me. The swing tempo and strength are helpful, but the TruSwing device that attaches to your club is really needed for a more informative analysis.Great addition to my golf experience, and infinitely faster than using my phone!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still don't know all the bells and whistles....but I will So far this watch has performed great. The only downside was it shipped to me missing one of the screws that holds the band on. That was disappointing because I had planned to charge it overnight and use it to play golf the following morning. Instead, we took it to our local Dick's store following our round and they fixed it right away with no problem. The screw seems to loosen up with wear so my husband is going to put some thread lock on it and that should take care of the problem (I hope). I have so far only used this to track my score and to measure drives but I plan to learn everything about it so I can use it to help me better my game.
