Approach S42: a daily timepiece that seamlessly transitions into a comprehensive GPS golf smartwatch.
As with all sports, Golfing is a game of stats. For the casual athlete, tracking their in-game statistics may not seem worth the hassle. But now, thanks to innovative gadgets like smartwatches, recording your sporting performance in real time is more convenient than ever.
In light of everything said, Garmin, renowned for its cutting-edge GPS navigation products, launches the Approach S42 GPS golf smartwatch in Malaysia with the promise of adding a depthful edge to golfing.
The new golf companion comes packed with 42,000 preloaded courses, visualised on a high-def colour touchscreen display screen that looks vivid and crisp even under the glaring morning sun.
With built-in high sensitivity GPS that zeroes in on your position, players can obtain precise yardages to the front, middle, and back of the green. Every hazard or dogleg is also mapped out accurately, providing you with accurate course information even before teeing off.
The Green View feature also shows the exact shape and layout of the green, with an additional drag and drop function for you to manually pin the most recently updated position of the flagstick for more precise targeting.
More notably, the S42 offers AutoShot Game Tracking that measures the distance of each shot. And to further enhance this feature, the golf smartwatch can optionally be paired to the Garmin CT10 club sensors that automatically tracks the distance of players hitting each club.
So if you’re wondering if your 7-iron is really your 150-yard club, then wonder no more. By simply syncing the smartwatch and sensor to the Garmin Golf app on your smartphone, you can get a full overview of your gameplay for a detailed post-round analysis.
Speaking of which, the golf app also aims to bring the golfing community closer together, allowing players to participate in weekly leaderboards, tournaments, and reviewing live scoring, with the added convenience of strokes gained analysis, automatic scorecard uploads and more!
And just with all smartwatches, the Approach S42 also offers the conventional activity-tracking features, measuring steps, sleep, calories burnt, heart rate, and other miscellaneous health metrics that truly completes the multisport functionality.
All in all, the lightweight and sleek designed Garmin Approach 42 golf smartwatch is an elegant daily timepiece that seamlessly transitions into a comprehensive golf watch packed with various perks and functionalities that golfers can leverage on to elevate their gameplay on the course.
